Preparing to Buy Appliances

Learn to be a Smart Appliance Customer

When was the last time you bought a new car? I'm guessing that you did your homework before heading to the car dealerships to put up tens of thousands of dollars on a new vehicle. It makes sense then to also spend some time preparing to spend thousands of dollars on new appliances for your home. Here are some general tips before you head out the door.

Have a flexible and realistic appliance budget.

Think about your budget. A basic appliance package by one of the big 3 (GE, Whirlpool, Frigidaire) including a range, mico-hood, refrigerator, and dishwasher will cost a minimum of $3500-$5000. At the other extreme, luxury homes valued well into 7 or even 8 figures are going to need luxury appliances. Considering that a single built-in refrigerator will commonly cost over $10,000, and that's just one appliance, a full-fledged luxury kitchen can easily run into several tens of thousands.

Consider your lifestyle

Built-In Coffee Maker

Consider extras such as Built-in Coffee-Makers, Wine or Beverage Coolers, Icemakers, or Steam-Convection Ovens. These will run up the bill, but for some people they are worth the extra, and they'll definitely make a statement.

Appliances should enhance your home value, up to a point.

One of the biggest concerns, in my view, is to choose appliances that “belong” in the house. If you live in an average middle class subdivision, be careful in buying luxury appliances because you are unlikely to recover the value when you sell your home. There are some exceptions if the neighborhood is changing character, or if for example you are a dedicated chef who can justify a commercial grade range without regard to resale value.

Luxury-Kitchen

Similarly, if you are in an area of custom homes, perhaps in a gated country club community, be prepared to commit to high end luxury appliances. Nothing can reduce a luxury home's value more than using standard finishes and brands where custom or luxury brands are expected.

These are just a few tips to get you thinking. A good place to go from here is to discuss these principles with your builder or designer. Of course, for the best selection of appliances of all the top brands as well as specialty brands, be sure to consult the experts at Arizona Wholesale Supply.

Kitchen Design Idea: Appliances on Islands

Appliances for Kitchen Islands

It's surprising how many kitchen islands are nothing more than tables or counters, occasionally also serving as workspaces.

Basic Kitchen Island

While this is certainly inexpensive, it almost appears to be an afterthought, as if to say, “We've got this extra space in the middle of the kitchen, so we need to fill the space.” Well, why not get some functionality out of it?

Appliances on Islands for Universal Design

There is much discussion these days about Universal Design. One of the challenges is finding lower cabinet space for moving microwaves from over-the-range and in general making appliances more accessible. The kitchen island is ideal for a microwave drawer as well as for an undercounter refrigerator or beverage center, or even refrigerator or freezer drawers. Also, moving appliances to a kitchen island frees up more cabinet space along the wall.

Entertaining Around a Kitchen Island

A strong rationale for an “open kitchen” design is for entertaining. Guests gather in the kitchen for a glass of wine and watch, if not participate in the final stages, of the meal preparation. Yet, with appliances lined up against a wall, for much of this time the host is standing at the range with his or her back facing the guests. If we would only move that range or cooktop to the island, the preparation would be the center of activity, and the host and group would be much more engaged.

Kitchen Entertaining

Of course, it's more work planning for gas for a cooktop, ventilation, etc. but that's why we need designers. Anybody can stick a box in the middle of the kitchen.
