6 Tips to Choose Kitchen Appliances

· Plan

· Layout / Measurements

· Budget

· Function

· Ventilation system

· Style

Start with a Plan

Evaluating your needs and goals for your new kitchen in several key areas will help you create a realistic appliance-purchasing strategy.


First, measure your current space. If you have appliances in place, and you are swapping them out, measure your current appliances. Use the serial number inside the current appliance and the google it. You will find the exact dimensions and spec sheets. If you are working with a new build, you still need to know your exact measurements and if you want counter depth or standard.


The budget you establish for your new kitchen will greatly influence the appliances you select, so it needs to be realistic for the size and scope of your project.


You need to make a list of what functions you NEED before making a list of what functions you WANT. For instance, do you need a gas range or electric? Do you want a convection oven? Do you want a water dispenser in your refrigerator?

Ventilation system

One area of your kitchen that is forgotten when considering appliances is the ventilation system. Range hoods overhead, or down draft systems that are integral into the countertop or cooktop are great for unobstructed overhead views. Depending on the size of your stove/cooktop and if you have an integral grill, griddle, burners, and other heating elements may increase the need for higher ventilation systems overhead.


In today’s luxury kitchens, stainless steel is the most popular finish option — in addition to being long-lasting and durable, stainless steel’s sleek surface is also easy to clean. Another luxury trend is integrating appliances with cabinetry using custom panels. This involves having panels custom made by a cabinet maker according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
