Time to Consider Smart Appliances?

Not Interested in owning Smart Appliances?

Let me ask you this.

If you (or maybe one of your kids) didn’t quite close the refrigerator door all the way, would you want to just leave it that way or would you appreciate a notification from your fridge that the door was left open?

Now, that is a smart appliance!

Having drinks on the patio with friends, and hate getting up every few minutes to “check” on the roast in the oven? Would you like to be able to view the internal temperature on the roast on your phone?

That is a smart appliance!

These are just two of the “smart” features available on today’s appliances.

“Alexa, pre-heat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees.”

“Thanks! Alexa”

Not just Amazon Alexa, but Google Home can order your connected appliances to turn on the dishwasher, clean your clothes, and cook your food. Today’s appliances can even connect with Nest thermostats to cool down your kitchen when the oven heats it up.

 

 

 

 

Samsung has extended the capabilities of their refrigerator by including a Family Hub which lets you show photos, leave messages, and much more. It even has internal camaras so you can look at the food in your fridge while you’re in the grocery store.

Kitchen Remodel Ideas

To help you take on your next remodeling project, we have created ten tips for a kitchen remodel. Let’s get started!

Kitchen Remodel Ideas:

  1. Wide Walkways.
    Narrow walkways can cause unexpected accidents and frustration for the homeowner. Instead, homeowners should discuss with their contractor about adding wide walkways into their kitchen. The wide walkways will give you more room to move around and work throughout the kitchen.

  2. The Right Height.
    A lot of times, homeowners will place their appliances wherever it looks best rather than measuring the appropriate height for themselves. To ensure you have the best kitchen, you want to place your microwave and oven at the right height for you. If you are shorter or taller, this will adjust depending on your preferences.

  3. Do Not Cut Corners.
    Corner cabinets can be a frustrating topic, because they tend to have difficulties opening when another cabinet is open. Instead, discuss with your contractor the different solutions you can have for this corner cabinet.

  4. A Purpose-Filled Island.
    Islands are terrific place to add a must-needed feature in your home without wasting anymore space. If you are in need of an extra sink or even storage, your island can come in handy. Be sure to incorporate these essential features into your island for maximum functionality.

  5. Count on Counters.
    During a remodel, you want to make sure that you buy a solid countertop. You want to choose one that is easy to maintain and easy on your wallet. Discuss with your contractor the different options before you settle on one.

  6. One Less Trip.
    If you have extra money in your budget, you may want to consider adding a fill-up station near your stovetop. You would have the contractor install a water faucet over the stove to fill up your pots without an extra trip.

  7. Chalk It Up To A Fantastic Idea.
    Chalkboard walls are a stylish and functional option. They are the perfect solution for busy homeowners who need a place to write their grocery list. They also make for a great kid distraction while you are cooking dinner.

  8. Get Plugged In.
    Take a look at the amount of outlets you currently have in your kitchen. If you feel like you could use more, now is the time to get some more added. Extra outlets will come in handy for big meals.

  9. Small Spaces = Soft Shades.
    If you have a small kitchen, expert designers recommend sticking with soft shades. Darker shades tend to make the room feel smaller.

  10. The Main Event.
    Just like in any room, you want to create a focal point. Whatever your point of interest may be, try to make it grand and elaborate.

Kitchen Appliances 101

From cooking holiday meals to baking cookies for an entire class, your kitchen has gone through a lot over the years. You have decided to take your kitchen to the next level by replacing your current appliances and we want to help you make the best decision for your kitchen remodel.

Kitchen Appliances 101:

Microwave.
Most homeowners buy the most inexpensive microwave that they can find on the market, but we recommend spending a little extra time researching microwaves. If you buy a high-quality microwave, it can eliminate the need to buy two ovens for your home.

Oven.
You can save a lot of money by purchasing a convection oven rather than a tradition oven for your household. Homeowners typically prefer the convention oven because of its speed, heating capabilities, and size. But if you are big on baking, you will want to buy a traditional oven that offers the classic modes like bake, roast or broil.

Refrigerator.
The quality of your refrigerator’s compressor will depend on how long you want to keep your food fresh. People who spend a lot of money on groceries may want to buy a dual-compressor unit to keep their food fresh for a longer time. Dual-compressors are typically more expensive than a single-compressor unit and it is important for homeowners to understand their need before shopping for refrigerators.

Sink.
Sinks have become more personalized to fit different homeowner’s cooking styles. There are cutting board attachments for prepping, deep sinks for extra space, and a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes for whatever your needs may be. Experts recommend buying a high-quality sink if you buy expensive countertops. The reason behind this theory is that low-quality sinks may need to be repaired and taken up. If that happens, you have to take up the countertop around it and could ruin the expensive countertop your splurged on buying. We recommend buying a high-quality sink that meets your cooking preferences.

Stovetop.
Your mind may immediately go to either gas or electric. Each homeowner has a preference depending on the way they cook. But before you choose, we would like to remind you of induction heat cooktops. With induction cooktops, you can keep the most amount of heat on your pan. Experts say that “40% of heat is lost from gas stovetops.” If you are looking for a high-performing stovetop, consider buying an induction heat cooktop.

We hope that this guide will help make your life a little bit easier. If you are looking to replace your kitchen flooring, take a look around our online store. We feature various types of flooring at an affordable, competitive rate. Call us at (602-258-7901) for more information.

Kitchen Organization Tips You Should Know

If you do a lot of cooking, entertaining and working in the kitchen then you’ll need to learn how to ensure that things run smoothly. That’s why implementing key organization tips can make completing tasks in your kitchen much easier. Here are some tips from the experts.

Keep Tools Within Reach
When setting up your kitchen make sure you keep your pots, pans and other cooking tools within reach. You can store your pots and pans in a drawer beneath the stove. Additional tools should be in a drawer adjacent. Frequently used food seasoning can be held in the cabinet over the stove so that you can easily grab them while you’re cooking.

Keep the Pantry Stock
There’s nothing worse than going into the pantry for something you need to complete a recipe and you don’t have it. Keep an backup of every item you tend to use frequently in the pantry and once you use it put it on your grocery list to place when you go food shopping for the week.

Label Everything
Having a well organized pantry is essential so that you’ll be able to find things when you need it. Use glass jars to hold some of your food items and apply a label to them.This is especially ideal if you tend to purchase things in bulk. Be sure you put the larger jars towards the back and the short ones in the front so that you can clearly see what you have.

Use All White Dishes
While dishware with bold colors and patterns are fun, all white dishware are versatile. You can use them when entertaining guests because they compliment any color scheme and they’re also ideal for casual use.

Organization is Key
Of course is organization is key when creating an efficient kitchen. Here are tips:
– Organize eating utensils by use
– Hang up mugs on a hanging rack
– Use wicker baskets to store extra items
– Expand cabinet space by using organizers with adjustable dividers within them
– Use double duty containers that can work as function as serving dishes but allow you to also store
food items in the space.

Kitchen Cabinet Paint Color Ideas

Thinking about giving your kitchen cabinets a new look by painting them a fresh new color? Know that your color choice will set the tone for the entire space. Yes, choosing the right hue is important because it will affect how you feel about your kitchen every time you enter the room.

There are literally hundreds of different colors to choose from. The best way to narrow down your choices is to examine color palettes from different manufacturers. Hues can vary depending on the brand. What color stands out to you? The hue that you like the most should serve as the dominant cabinet color. Next, you can select complementary colors for the trim and accent. Once you’ve narrowed down your color selections you’re nearly halfway through the process of getting your beautiful updated cabinets.

What are some great colors you can dress your cabinetry up with? Well, cool blues and greens creates a relaxed feeling. Which is ideal if you want the color to fade into the background, but still have some interest. Red and orange are intense hues that may leave you on edge. So if you’re interested in a bold and edgy look than you should consider using a palette from this hue. Maybe black cabinets are your style. Although, black is neutral color it contrasts beautifully against white walls. If you decide to go with this look, then you make sure you contrast with other lighter elements so the kitchen doesn’t look dark and overwhelming.

Interested in something light and cheery? Than steer towards sunny oranges and yellows. Of course, white is an ideal choice to go with since it’s simple offering a clean and streamlined look. The great thing about an all white cabinetry pallet is that you can play around with different accent colors.

Do you desire a modest yet modern look? Than stick with neutrals like white, beige and gray. You can spice up neutral palettes with different coloring effects by painting eclectic stripes or creating an unusual trim design. You can also create a two-toned ombre like effect on your cabinets for a unique look.
