Laundry Room Remodeling

Laundry Room Advice from Houzz

New Washers and Dryers from Arizona Wholesale

Modern laundry rooms are no longer after thoughts. Today's laundry rooms are designe for both function and aesthetics. Not just an anteroom from the garage to the living space, modern laundry rooms are workspaces for getting clothes clean and sometimes much more. Here are 5 questions posed by Mitchell Parker in his Houzz article:

Homeowner's Workbook: How to Remodel the Laundry Room

  1. What are you hoping to achieve?
  2. How do you want the space to function?
  3. How do you do your laundry?
  4. What kind of appliances do you want?
  5. Special features?

Of course, we're focusing here on #4 – The Washer and Dryer. Choices include:

Front-Load-Pair

Electrolux Front Load Pair

  1. Front load washers and matching dryers. Full-sized front load washers were launched in the mid-nineties by Maytag and Whirlpool and over the years have become very popular even though they are a pricey alternative to the traditional top loaders of the past. These units may have optional pedestal bases, and may even be configured so that the dryer is stacked on top of the washer.
  2. High efficiency Top Load washers and matching dryers. HE top loaders are for customers who want to load and unload their wash loads from the top, but also want the efficiency and water conservation of the tumble action front load machines.
  3. Traditional Top Load washers and matching dryers. Traditional top load washers have the high-post agitator in the center. While “old school”, some consumers still prefer them, and newer models are available with energy saving features.
  4. Combination washer and dryer. Combination units can be a single front load washer that can also double as a dryer, or a washer with a connected dryer on top configured and sold as a single unit.

Induction Cooktops

Three Criteria for a New Induction Cooktop

Price, Power, and Features

You're already convinced that you want a new induction cooktop, and why not? Instant on and off, super safe, amazing cleanup, and more. It's time to make the move! But which model should I choose? What size should I buy? How much should I pay? What bells and whistles are really worth having? Read on.

Power

One of the reasons for buying an induction cooktop is the amazing speed that you get with induction cooktops. By all means, your new cooktop should have a power burner which will bring water to a boil as fast as lightning. Seriously, ask your sales associate what the wattage is on the largest induction element. It's not a perfect measure, but is a good indication of what kind of speed you'll have. But let's face it, ALL of these cooktops are going to beat any conventional cooktop on time to boil. Jenn-Air touts a “fastest to boil” feature on their power element.

Features

Thermador-Freedom

Thermador

There are a host of feature differences on different induction brands and models. For example, you might prefer a bridge element: two elements connect to offer the option of cooking with an oblong pan. Various convection tops have large power elements. Thermador has a unique Freedom cooktop that enables pots and pans to be placed anywhere on the cooking surface.

Price

Whirlpool-Induction

Whirlpool

Now that induction cooktops have been around for some time, prices have moderated some, but they're still not inexpensive. On the other hand, it's hard to find a user that doesn't love cooking with induction. You don't want to pay more than is necessary, but you also don't want to go so low that you're disappointed in the outcome. GE, Frigidaire, and Whirlpool are popular priced brands that each offer induction cooktops. Consult with your builder or designer, and make sure you visit with the experts at Arizona Wholesale Supply.

Wood Floors Are The Best For Resale

Have you ever watched an episode of “House Hunter” on Home and Garden TV? If you have, you know that wood floors are the most requested home design feature.

Although you may currently have no plans to sell your home, it’s a good idea to consider resale when renovating your home. Would wood floors be a good investment for you? Consider the following factors.

Neighborhood: If you live in an upscale neighborhood with homes that feature higher-end finishes, choosing wood will make your home more competitive in the market. In an area of starter homes, how about wood in the living/dining area only, or choosing a less expensive wood such as oak? Laminate floors with a look similar to wood at a much lower price are another option to consider.

Home style: A traditional style is well suited to wood. Modern homes have more flooring flexibility, but will also stand out with wood.

Personal preference: You have to choose flooring based on your personal preference first. Many people love wood, but if you don’t, select the flooring that suits you best. However, if you are attracted to wood floors, you can be sure that your choice will make selling your home easier when the time comes.
