If you've been bitten by the all freezer bug, take the benefits and shortfalls into consideration before choosing one for a remodel, says Justin Breckle, branch manager for Roth Concept Center in St. Louis. His company has lavish showrooms in six American cities that display the latest appliances in complete kitchens. Pick a size based on what your space will allow and how often you use the freezer. While units like the 36-inch Sub-Zero All Freezer are very attractive, "you should first consider how much food you store," he says. "If you're the type who goes to the store every couple of days for the freshest stuff or eats mostly organic produce, you probably don't need a separate freezer at all. If, on the other hand, you have lots of kids or you're always on the go and eat lots of frozen dinners, that large freezer might make sense."
For those of you that are smoothie obsessed, a blender might be on your daily kitchen appliance checklist. In that case, you might want to go with a retro option like this pretty silver blender. It has a 50's diner vibe, which kind of makes me want to use it for milkshakes instead of smoothies.
Another overlooked fact: consider your home's resale value. If you're going to the expense of including high-end grills, surfaces and appliances outside, don't neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers, task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers, ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don't forget to include comfortable seating.
If you want to add color and pattern to your kitchen, this toaster is a great choice. It can only handle two slices of toast at once, however, so this is a better option for a single person or couple. For those of you who cook a lot, a beautiful set of salt and pepper cellars would look lovely sitting out on your countertop. You could even add a glass olive oil cruet to the mix, which would look great and be super handy as you're whipping up delicious meals.
Online restaurant supply houses can offer such great discounts because they have bulk buying power — after all, they're designed to serve restaurants. That usually means, though, that any customer will have to buy an entire case of certain smaller or low-margin items or meet a minimum dollar amount. In general, the bigger the supply house, the more likely the "by the case" requirement. "Keep in mind that most of the bigger restaurant suppliers are getting great discounts because they're working with lots of smaller manufacturers, and it's not cost-effective for them to break a case [into smaller amounts] — plus it encourages damage," says Herschberger.
When deciding what to leave out on your counter and what not to leave out, ask yourself this: how many times a week do I use it? For items that you use more than once a week, go ahead and leave them out. I use my handheld vacuum on the daily, and this one is so beautiful, I almost want to hang it on the wall like it's a piece of art.
Is your kitchen currently plumbed for gas or electric? As much as you may long for the real flames of gas burners, it can be very expensive to run a gas line to your kitchen if there’s not one there already, depending on the distance, BTUs needed, etc. Generally, your best bet is to go with whatever type appliance your kitchen is already set to handle.
