Choosing Appliances for Custom Kitchens

Appliances are one of the most essential elements of a kitchen; the main purpose of a kitchen is to make food after all! Choosing new appliances for new custom kitchens is a major part of a redesign so it is important to carefully consider your options. There are many considerations to make in selecting appliances like size and energy efficiency. Enlisting the help of professional kitchen designers like The Kitchen Broker can help.

The first thing to consider when designing custom kitchens is what appliances you need. The range of appliances required in a kitchen depends on the foods typically cooked there, and the number of people they are cooked for. A 6 burner stove is not necessary for people who live alone and cook simple meals. Space and budget are better used elsewhere. As a baseline, most kitchen designers will require a stove, range, refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettle, and toaster.

Once you have decided on what appliances your kitchen needs, you need to choose a specific model of each. Australian appliances are held to some of the most stringent safety standards in the world so it best to go local. An important factor for kitchen designers to consider is energy usage, more efficient appliances will go a long way to saving on operating costs. It will also improve the environmental footprint of your custom kitchens. Water efficiency is also important for saving operating costs, especially for dishwashers.
