The kitchen is the command center and heart of the American Home. More families congregate in the kitchen than any other room. It’s also where most major appliances are found - the range, refrigerator, microwave oven and dishwasher.
It is recommended that you choose your appliances and the type of appliances you want before laying out your kitchen. Your kitchen layout will be determined by the appliances you choose. Some families prefer a wall oven and cooktop rather than a freestanding or slide-in range. Refrigerators come in different sizes and widths. Microwave Ovens are made for over the range models, full size, mid size and compact. Therefore, it’s important to coordinate your appliance package and kitchen layout.
Refrigerators comes in many sizes, from 14 cubic feet to 22 cubic feet. They come side by side, top mounts, bottom mounts and built-ins for water and ice. It’s also important to choose a refrigerator that is energy efficient.
Cooktops, ranges and ovens can be purchased for gas or electric. It comes down strictly to personal preference.
Other major appliances for your new home would include a dishwasher, microwave oven, washer, dryer, and deep freezer.
