How to Choose the Right Appliances for Your Home
Most people come to a store searching for good home appliances, but can’t correctly express what they actually need. They have an image of a perfect kitchen, bathroom, and living room, but they can explain nothing when it comes to details.
To avoid such situations you should be aware of what type of appliances will suit your life rhythm the best. Don’t come to a department store for ideas. Come with ideas.
In this article, we’re going to help you to make a clear idea of what appliances will be the best choice for you and your family.
So, let’s get started.
Tips on Choosing the Right Appliances
First of all, decide what kind of appliances you need – standard, chef, or commercial. Do you cook a lot of meals? How often do you organize a big family dinner? Write down what appliances you’re going to use daily, weekly, and monthly.
Refrigerator. Usually, a fridge is the biggest thing in your kitchen. So, measure the space in your home where the fridge will be. Don’t forget to take into account the space needed to open the doors. Decide which section of the fridge should be the biggest. For example, if you are a vegetarian, you need a little more space in the crisper. The number of people in your family defines the size of the fridge too. A refrigerator of 500-600 liters will be a good choice for a family of three-four members. If you a fan of ice cream, you should think of a bigger freezer too. And the last one is style. There are 4 main styles of refrigerators – top mount freezer, bottom mount freezer, freezer side-by-side, and French door. Choose the one, which is the most comfortable and stylish for you.
Stove. Choosing the right stove is very important, especially, if you enjoy cooking or eating a homemade food. First of all, decide which type of power source you prefer – gas or electric. Then, write down the features that are the most important. What are you looking for – true convection to cook food more evenly, warming drawer to keep your dishes warm, electronic controls, double oven, induction, or a dual—fuel?
Microwave. This element of the kitchen is extremely important if you constantly heat up easy meals or leftovers. Never buy a microwave before anything else. Let it be an element which suits bigger appliances like stove and fridge and complement your kitchen like a little accessory. The modern microwaves are of 2 types –very simple or very advanced. So, choose the one you like the most.
Washer & Dryer. The older types of washers are less expensive than the newer ones, but they need more electricity to work steadily. So, we recommend looking for newer models with modern mechanisms. Relatively new models have a high-efficiency system of work. They use much less electricity and much less water. Firstly choose a washer, and only then find the matching dryer.
