When it comes time to remodel your kitchen and make it the dream kitchen you want, most homeowners look into luxury options surrounding the cabinetry, countertops, floors, and backsplash. These options are practical and they enhance the aesthetics which is why so many focus on these selections. However, few give their kitchen appliances real thought. Finding appliances that fit the style of your kitchen, preferences, and dynamics of your day-to-day living can be challenging. Today, we at Future Vision Remodeling would like to share a few tips to help you complete your luxury kitchen remodel with the right appliance upgrades.
Best Oven Range for Baking & More
Cooking more evenly and faster than traditional ovens, modern high performing convection ovens circulate heat with a fan. However, if baking is hobby, the traditional bake, broil, roasting oven is a better option. For the ultimate in choice, the perfect kitchen can feature side-by-side or stacked oven station to give the chef in your own the right tools for the job.
Easy to Clean, Scratch Resistant Cooktop
Cooktops offer gas, electric or induction options. Most prefer gas over electric, but it is a matter of preference. As a real time saver, since you lose the least amount of heat from the burner to the pan, the induction heat is a flat cooktop, similar to the electric cooktop, but performs much like a fast-heating gas stove.
Countertop or Built in Microwave?
No matter where you put them, microwaves are likely to consume a lot of your kitchen’s space; whether you place them on the countertop, above the cooktop, or build into the cabinetry. To eliminate the need to invest in a double oven, consider a convection microwave that also operates as a fast-speed oven. There are options that include microwave drawers which can ideally nestle among the base cabinets as well. \
How to Choose Refrigerator / Freezer Combo
Quality comes down to the compressor when you evaluate the refrigerator’s performance. Operating double-time to keep a moist fridge and a dry, cold freezer, are the single-compressor units that power a refrigerator / freezer. Though the dual compressor is a higher initial cost, the food is kept fresher and longer. There are some units that can accomplish the purification of water that passes through the water and ice, which many people prefer. Keep in mind other refrigerators simply pass the water though the copper pipe unit to the fridge door and offer no kind of filtering or purification.
There are several dishwasher options available including drawer dishwashers that are easier to load and can be installed at various heights according to your needs. They can handle smaller loads, making them more efficient as well. If the traditional dishwasher with the door that pulls from the top is more your style, where it is still the most popular, there are quite a few options where you can create a seamless look as they can be paneled to blend with cabinetry. Stainless still is always a popular finish among the countless options.
