How to Go about Buying New Appliances

Create a design plan for your home and then start buying new appliances accordingly.


Refridgerators are one of the most important appliances you have in your kitchen. They keep your food cold, but they are also large and demand quite a bit of space. They can either fit in or stand out with the style you have in the room. Refridgerators come in a wide range of costs. If you want something simple, you can find what you need for a few hundred dollars. If you want something top of the line with a lot of add-on features, you could be looking at several thousand dollars. Whatever you choose, be sure to find a good brand like Maytag refrigerator options. Fridges come in a range of styles, including top-mounted. These fridges have freezers above the fridge. A side by side Maytag refrigerator has the freezer on one side and the fridge on the other. Bottom mounted fridges offer the same amount of space as a top mounted fridge, but they are more efficient and locate the freezer at the bottom of the appliance. French door style fridges are rising in popularity. They have freezers on the bottom, but the top half opens in a French door style instead of having just one door. There are a lot of features you can choose to include, like ice and water dispensers in the doors, spill-proof shelving, crisper bins, customized humidity control and much more.


Kitchen Range

The kitchen range takes a lot of heat because it is often the central location for cooking. The kitchen range is a cooktop and stove all in one appliance. Some homeowners like to buy these appliances separately, but that takes up more space. The primary distinguishing feature in ranges is the gas or electric option. You can also get features such asdifferent types of burners and ovens that self-clean. If you get a cheaper range, you can pay just a few hundred dollars for it. If you get a stainless dual-fuel range with top of the line convection heating, you may be looking at a couple thousand. The size of the range is pretty standard, but high-end ranges can go beyond the regular 30 inches. The interior size is standard as well. Ranges come in a variety of different models, like freestanding, drop-in and slide-in. Freestanding is the most common because you can put it anywhere in the kitchen. Slide-in and drop-in options have unfinished sides so they must be surrounded by cabinets in order to look nice. If you have a gas line in your kitchen, you might want to go with a gas stove. If you do not, electric is easier so you don't have to run an extra gas line just for the stove. The higher the price on the stove, the more power and flexibility you get in the burner styles. Convection ovens come with a fan to circulate the hot air and give you a more even heat. Check the controls and settings as you shop and make sure the features you want are easy to use.



Maytag dishwasher options come in a variety of sizes with plenty of features. If you have a large family, you would want a dishwasher that can accommodate more items. If it's just you in the house, you can get away with something smaller. If you want a budget dishwasher, you can get a good performing appliance, but you won't get any features like adjustable racks and soil sensors. A Maytag dishwasher that is more high end will be quieter and will have more room for flatware. It will also hid the controls and blend into the room better. Dishwasher drawers are a newer option that allow you to include two small drawers to load your materials with ease. These drawers are expensive, but they look great in a kitchen and really blend in. When you look at dishwashers, you will want to consider your cleaning habits. If your dishes go in right from the table, you will need a dishwasher that can get the hard stuff off a dish. If you pre-rinse them, a more gentle dishwasher will work fine. You will also want to inspect the interior of the dishwasher and look at its convenience aspects. If you use a lot of plates and not a lot of glasses, make sure you can put plates on the top rack as well as the lower rack. Check out the controls and see if they are easy to find and use. You don't want something confusing cluttering up your kitchen. And be sure to take a close look at the dimensions you have available versus the dishwashers you are looking to buy so you aren't disappointed that the one you want won't fit into the space you have.


Washers and Dryers

When you are buying a washer dryer combo, you have a lot of options to consider. Buying new appliances is never east. You will have to think about cost and also the features you can get in a washer dryer. Top loading washing machines cost less and are usually faster. HE washing machines, also known as high efficiency, use less water and have larger capacities. They are also more gentle on clothes. If you have a large family, you will need a washing machine with a big capacity. Front loading washing machines are a more expensive option, but they use less water and get more water out when they spin for less drying time later. When thinking about washers and dryers, you need to size up the space you have available. These appliances come in a variety of sizes, but you can only get a certain size into the room you have to offer. You will also need to look at the features you want to include. If you need permanent press or sanitary cycles, make sure the washing machine comes with those options. The more basic you go, the easier the price will be to afford, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't pay for some upgrades. High efficiency washers, for example, will last longer and cost less to run along the way. Make sure you get a good brand that is known for its customer service and innovation within the industry when buying new appliances.
