he 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. And, as you choose appliances, be sure you or your trade professional prioritizes this established budget and function over aesthetics.
REFRIGERATOR: Depending on the age of your refrigerator you could be spending more for electricity than you need to. Refrigerator’s use approximately 18% of your energy cost for your monthly bill for your home. If your refrigerator is more than 10 years old, consider buying a newer model.
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.
