Planning a kitchen remodel is an exciting time, but also a time when there is a seemingly endless list of choices to make. For some, this process can feel overwhelming, which can sap some of the fun out of designing the kitchen of your dreams. The team at Nea Maya would like to offer the following thoughts on the benefits of purchasing new appliances during your kitchen remodel project. We hope to help make the process a bit easier, and we are always here to answer any questions that you may have about your upcoming kitchen remodel.
New Appliances Will be More Energy Efficient
When it comes to efficiency, technology has made vast improvements in recent years. Today's kitchen appliances are far more efficient than even the best available options in recent years. One way to make the selection process easier is to look for appliances that have the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Star label. These options have passed a strict set of standards, and offer the best available energy efficiency technology. Each and every home will have a different energy use profile, but it is estimated that updating to Energy Star appliances can save homeowners between ten and fifty percent on their yearly power bill.
New Appliances are Available in a Range of Style Options
Designing your kitchen remodel means updating the look and feel of the space. To that end, selecting new appliances offers a chance to personalize the room and enhance the overall design theme. There are options available in many different colors, from basic white and black to stainless steel, and even a range of bright color options. For those who are looking for a more vintage feel, there are even styles that offer the performance and features of today with a strong nod toward the designs of previous generations. There is truly something for everyone, and selecting appliances that highlight the space is one of the most exciting parts of the process.
New Appliances Offer Amazing Connectivity Options
Virtually all appliance manufacturers offer one or more "smart" appliance options. With home connectivity on the rise, it comes as no surprise that kitchen appliances are getting in on that trend. Appliance connectivity allows homeowners to receive alerts when there is something amiss at home, such as a refrigerator door that has been left open or a mechanical issue that requires attention. Getting in front of repair needs can help reduce maintenance costs considerably. Remote access is another benefit that comes with smart appliances. Owners can use a phone app to check and see if their dinner is done and reduce the temperature to "warm" if they are running late.
These are just some of the benefits of upgrading to new appliances during your kitchen remodel. If you would like to learn more or have any questions about design or the construction process, please feel free to stop in and visit the showroom at Nea Maya.
