Expert Advice: Choose appliances that are right for you, your lifestyle

When starting a major kitchen renovation, choosing the proper appliances may seem overwhelming. Some careful considerations early on can make the selection process easier — and fun. • First consideration should be how you will use them. Do you cook, or do you want the appliances to mostly be "pretty"? If you truly use your kitchen, get the best appliances you can afford. The second consideration: budget. There is a wide range of prices in kitchen appliances. Certain brands have come to dominate the upper echelon of the appliance market, but there are less well-known brands that make reliable and well-functioning appliances that might be more affordable. • The finish would be one more consideration. If possible, choose a matching finish on all appliances. This photo shows a good example. This shows a drop-in gas hob in a semiprofessional scale appliance. Since this is in a good-sized kitchen, there was room for stacked wall ovens. This allows for perfect pot-storage drawers under the cooktop. • But if you don't have extra space, then how large of a stove can your kitchen accommodate? These are the kind of considerations you should go through when choosing appliances. A professional kitchen designer is a good source of information, and a visit to an appliance gallery can give you firsthand information about new innovations.
