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.
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.
Consider what kind of ice would be nice. When one of the main attractions of a separate freezer is more abundant ice, you need to do your homework, says Justin. "Some units have crushed or filtered water ice, some do not. Whether that should influence your purchase just depends on how picky you are about your ice." If on further examination you discover that the increased ice is the primary reason you're buying an all freezer, it might be lots easier just to fit an undercounter ice maker into your remodel. Sub-Zero makes one model, and lesser known companies such as Avanti and Hoshizaki make others.
How meticulous are you about wiping up after spills? Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top, Franke says. Smoothtops also require a special cleaner. If you're not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils, which are inexpensive and easy to replace, or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can't leak down underneath.
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.
For many of us, our coffee maker is often the one appliance that gets used the most. If you're ready to up your at-home coffee game, you might want to consider a Nespresso. This pod-based espresso/cappuccino maker is easy to use, makes delicious coffee, and looks pretty snazzy sitting out on your counter. If there's anything that can break a daily Starbucks habit, this might be it.
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.
