About six months ago I realized that we needed to do something to renovate our kitchen. It was old, outdated, and a little non-functional. I didn't know what to do to improve things, but a friend of mine mentioned that it might be smart to go through and replace the appliances. We started going shopping, and I realized that we needed to figure out where to get a great deal. We started combing through sales, and I actually got pretty good at snagging bargains. This blog is all about learning more about the latest appliance so that you can renovate on a dime.
Shopping for appliances can be both exciting and stressful. You're excited about the new appliance and all of the bells and whistles it will have, but probably a little stressed to see the price-tag attached to it. If you're shopping for multiple appliances at the same time, i.e., kitchen appliances, it can be extra stressful. See below for tips on how to help you when shopping for appliances:
Buy What You Need
If you're looking for a refrigerator and definitely want an ice/water machine built in the door, then that's what you should look for. The refrigerator with the screen and built-in Wi-Fi is neat, but do you really need it? Buy what you need and skip out on those extras, especially if you aren't exactly tech-savvy. The same goes for stoves and microwaves. If you aren't tech savvy, then go with a more basic model. Skip out on any appliance that offers a lot of extras if you don't intend on using them.
Shop For Your Style
Yes, those monochromatic stainless appliances are beautiful, but if you aren't exactly into the stainless look and can get away with a basic white appliance, then go with that - it may save you some extra cash. Remember that stainless will show fingerprints (unless you get a fingerprint-less model), and black appliances will show smudges, fingerprints, and dust really well as well. Don't let that stop you though if it's what you want and matches with your style and decor.
Shop For Convenience
When buying appliances, shop for the appliance that will make things a little more convenient for you. With laundry appliances, if you have a lot of laundry to do, it doesn't make sense to purchase a smaller washer and dryer. Instead, invest in a heavy duty washer/dryer combo that will help you do larger loads of laundry and save you some time.
With your kitchen appliances, if you have a big family or cook a lot of food, it may be best to have a double oven so you can cook multiple foods at the same time. Check out a refrigerator with a small drawer that can be opened from the outside to get snacks out easily for little ones.
When shopping for appliances, think about what exactly you need and don't buy anything extra that you don't. Shop for your style and convenience. Take your time when shopping for your appliances and do your research.
