Don’t Remodel Without New Appliances


Kitchen appliances have changed a lot in the past few years. It used to be that there wasn’t much variety when it came to choosing a new refrigerator, dishwasher or oven/stovetop. If you’re doing some remodeling in West Palm Beach, FL, then you’re probably in the market for some new appliances. I mean, there’s really no point in redoing a kitchen but keeping the same old, outdated appliances right? Rather than suffering through plain old white appliances, get a new set which feature top of the line innovations from major appliance companies. Appliances need to play a key role in the planning of a new kitchen. You wouldn’t put a refrigerator on the other side of the kitchen from your work space just like you wouldn’t put the dishwasher a long way from the sink. Simple planning can ensure that your fridge door opens unimpeded and your microwave is in an easy to access location.

Fridges have undergone the most changes out of the major kitchen appliances. It used to be that all refrigerators came in a bland white color and followed the pattern of small freezer on top then larger fridge below. Not too long ago, it dawned on appliance makers that people go into the fridge far more than the freezer, so it should be easier to access. This led to freezer on the bottom models, many of which featuring French doors which improve storage and ease of access. Recent innovations have turned fridges from simple cooling chests to high end electronic devices complete with touchscreens and multiple door designs. There are even some fridges which dispense both cold, hot and even sparkling water. Fridges can even be built to look like part of the cabinetry for a beautiful old-fashioned look.

Dishwashers are another appliance where technological advancements are evident. It used to be that you had to pretty much wash your dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher to ensure that they actually got clean. The dishwashers of today are far better at cleaning than those of the past. Multiple water nozzles placed strategically around the dishwasher allow for every dish to get hit. Some models even have built in garbage disposals which completely eliminate the need to rinse dishes before loading them into the dishwasher. There are a ton of different dishwasher brands available so speaking with a remolding professional like those at Absolute Kitchen & Bath Works can help you pick the perfect dishwasher for your needs.
