Still, many kitchen buyers leave the appliances until the last minute when planning a new kitchen. It’s a bit of a shame, says Kristina Bååth, Sales Manager and Kitchen Specialist SMEG, Sweden. Here she tells why;
– I usually recommend that you look at your white goods needs and wishes already at the beginning of the kitchen planning so that you get a good picture of the costs and can fit them into the budget. This is especially true for those who are interested in cooking – otherwise there is a risk that you stand there at the end and can not afford the white goods you want.
Buying appliances is expensive, especially if you are going to buy everything new. Is there a good way to prioritize?
– Think about what you think is most important – do you use the oven a lot or do you fry most things? Maybe you want a stove that is 90 cm wide instead of 60 cm? If there are many of you in the family, an extra large fridge and freezer may be required. Go through all the parts and think through your needs.
What appliances are a must in a modern kitchen?
– Refrigerator and freezer, separately or in combination, is of course a must. Then the oven, stove, microwave, fan and dishwasher are included as basic appliances. In addition, there are a plethora of other devices for those who like technology.
