When you discuss your plans with your luxury kitchen designer and finalise the materials and finishes your kitchen will require, there’s one more thing to consider: kitchen appliances.
Appliances finish the kitchen. Depending on the design that you’ve opted for, you’ll choose your utensils, your kettle, your fridge, your oven, your chopping boards and a plethora of other small items to fit in with your overarching design.
But where do you start when you’re picking your appliances?
Your custom kitchen designer can help with advice from a size, function and style point of view. Also as part of the kitchen design process, your kitchen designer will factor in the type of cooking you do and how you work in your kitchen when making recommendations about the best choice of kitchen appliances for your home. There’s a lot to consider, and your qualified kitchen designer has the knowledge and experience to guide you in your kitchen appliance selection.
Start your research online
There are a multitude of online resources to help you. Online retailers and Google are a good place to get a general idea of the range of kitchen appliances available. Read reviews from people who have bought the product to ensure it has all of the features you’re looking for. Most importantly, don’t buy your kitchen appliances until you have spoken with your kitchen designer. Your kitchen designer can qualify your ideas, and confirm they will work with the layout of your new kitchen design.
Consider your style
If you are thinking of have a contemporary, modern or traditional kitchen design, you need to consider what will fit with your style. Modern, chrome finished appliances won’t fit in with a traditional kitchen.
A good idea is to take the images of products you like the look of with you to your kitchen designer in Sydney, and match the finish of the product up to the finish of your kitchen. If you are considering a kitchen design around a specific style, make sure the appliances aren’t out of place in it. But if you are thinking of a specific stove or centre piece, ensure that the finish you and your bespoke kitchen designer choose matches up.
Your budget is probably the biggest factor in deciding which appliances you buy. There are several brands available in Australia, which means you have a huge choice in kitchen appliances available to you. And there are plenty of choices for every kind of budget. It is important to look at the specific features you need. Sometimes features you don’t need can make the kitchen appliance more expensive than it needs to be. Your qualified kitchen designer can provide expert knowledge about the features you should look out for.
