The right appliances can make a significant difference in your kitchen. These items not only affect the overall look of the space, but the layout and function of the area as well. With dozens of styles, features, and sizes, how do you choose the right appliances for your Markham home? Let’s discuss a few things you should consider as you choose appliances for your kitchen that you will enjoy and will attract potential buyers.
The correct size of appliance should be one of the first things you consider. Once you have determined the dimensions of the product to ensure it fits the space properly, then you can focus on the design, feature set, and price tag of the model you desire. For example, if you are purchasing a new refrigerator, you should not only measure the width and height of the area where the fridge will reside, but also the space in front of the appliance. You need ample room for the doors to open. If space is tight, you may want a French door design rather than a top-mounted freezer.
The warranty on an appliance is often overlooked. If there are any issues with the product and it is still under warranty, it can save you hundreds of dollars and a lot of stress. Consider products with longer warranties and make sure you read the fine print. Some warranties may sound great but have many exclusions which make the warranty essentially worthless.
What features are important to you? Are you interested in energy-efficiency and safety options? Do you want the latest technology and much convenience? Because most appliances offer such a wide feature set, it is important you do your own research and determine what tools and settings matter most to you. Then, you can narrow down your options and find a product that will make you happy. Keep in mind that if you are planning on selling your home soon, make sure the appliances are user-friendly and practical so they aren’t a deterrent for potential buyers.
If you are updating many appliances in your kitchen, consider items that boast a similar design and finish such as stainless steel or black. This helps create a cohesive look throughout the kitchen which potential buyers love. It is also wise to choose more neutral designs. Some appliances can boast fun and unique colors and while they may match your own décor and style, if you plan to sell your home soon, it may not be as attractive to potential buyers.
A kitchen remodel can be stressful and an inconvenience but it can also be rewarding and greatly improve your home value. If you are interested in selling your Markham home, contact real estate agent Martin MacFarlane and start the selling process today.
