Is It Time To Update My Kitchen?

When your appliances are falling apart, your cabinets are worn, and your laminate countertops are peeling apart, it is pretty easy to figure out that you need to renovate your kitchen. Besides the cosmetic issues, there are several other reasons that are more important than whether or not the cabinets are outdated. Here are some additional reasons which can help you decide if it is time to renovate your kitchen.

Location: Creating an open space that incorporates outside living space is a big trend in newer homes. By Incorporating a door into the layout of your kitchen it would help create a nice flow to an outside deck or patio. You also may want to rearrange the position of windows to allow more or less sunlight or to watch your children play in the yard. Keep in mind that a cooking surface should never be located under an operable window.

Efficiency & Eco-Friendly: In today's real estate market, everyone wants eco-friendly features in the home to reduce their carbon footprint. Outdated appliances can actually be costing you money due to inefficiencies. New technological advances with dishwashers, disposals and refrigerators could save you a considerable amount of money and may be well worth the investment. For example, purchasing a dishwasher with low-energy consumption, delay timer and economy cycle or half-load button will result in saving water and money.

Traffic flow: If there's more than one cook in your household, you may want to consider making more room around the main workspace. If you entertain family and friends, you will certainly want an open floor plan that allows the cook to interact with guests. By most standards the width of a walkway should be at least 36" and the width of a work aisle should be at least 42" for one cook and at least 48" for multiple cooks.

Sufficient space: Counter space and storage space can dramatically change just by rearranging the layout of your kitchen. The position of your refrigerator or shape of your counter may be taking away useful workspace. A good rule of thumb when replacing a countertop or changing the shape of your kitchen, is that you should have a total of 158" of countertop frontage, 24" deep with at least 15" of clearance above, to accommodate all uses, including landing area, preparation/work area and storage.

Handicap Accessibility: Is your kitchen accessible to individuals with disabilities? While you may not have a need right now, if you plan on staying in the house a long time or plan on selling the house, it is important to keep this aspect in mind. Will you be able to use your kitchen safely as you get older? While it is often overlooked, this is a key design element in any kitchen remodel.

Before you remodel your kitchen, make a checklist of major and minor problems and keep notes of the features you dislike and like the most. Whether you are planning on working with a designer or taking on the task yourself, a prioritized list of needs and wants will help you better organize your remodeling plans.

One more question about my new Maytag front loader????

My new High efficiency machine says that there is like 3 minutes left in the wash cycle, but it is more like 10????? What's going on? I even set my kitchen timer to see if I was wrong, but no, it took a lot longer..... Why?

My Maytag does the same, I believe the time remaining is for the current cycle. All I care about is that it does an awesome job cleaning and uses hardly any water.

How you can Rate Kitchen Appliances   by CORDELL WURST

Getting new appliances is often exciting and frustrating. Concentrate attention on your top rated picks by using a rating method that may determine your demands, the required characteristics of different models, the appliance efficiency and reliability, and, naturally, the value range. Use on the web searches, consumer reports and weblog internet sites; client comments; and even the support line with the several manufacturers before generating your final selection. Appliances are long-term investments, as well as a small homework in advance can save large headaches later.

Difficulty: Uncomplicated

Directions

Things You'll Want
Metal tape measure

Recommend Edits

1)Over-sized appliances waste power and dollars. The appliance you purchase really should suit your desires.

Size must be the initial element when thinking about purchasing new appliances. Figure out the space accessible for the new equipment before creating a choice.

Measure the height and width with the space using a metal tape measure. Draw a sketch from the location, and write all the measurements on the sketch.

2)Features and use will probably be the next step in eliminating some models.

Refrigerators with ice/water dispensers, side-by-side doors, freezer drawers or trim kits for a built-in appear are characteristics to think about.

Electric or gas ranges and cook tops must be purchased depending on the amount of use the appliance will have. Added features include spill-proof tops, warming drawers, and thermal or convection ovens.

Microwaves may be built-in or countertop models and may possibly combine convection oven cooking and built-in exhaust fans.

Dishwashers and laundry appliances should really be purchased to meet the needs from the household. Added functions can include things like sound insulation, digital delay starters, timers and light load capabilities.

three)Energy efficiency is usually determined with most new electric appliances by checking for the Energy Star label and reviewing the Power Guide Rating Sheet attached to the appliance. The rating is an estimate in the cost to operate that particular appliance. Ratings are based on the average use of an electric appliance.

Gas appliances are typically extra efficient and expense much less to run than comparably sized electric appliances. One of the most effective dishwashers and clothes washers use less water and will have an energy-saving setting.

4)Value appears to become the easiest method to rate appliances till you recognize that this is a long-term investment and all the connected expenses will need to be deemed. With an estimated life expectancy of ten to 15 years, the least pricey appliance may possibly cost more to run and to preserve.

By far the most expensive appliances may not be one of the most efficient or one of the most practical. Commercial ovens look terrific and cook well but are seldom well insulated and may have really pricey repair expenses. Side-by-side refrigerators are efficient and effortless to utilize but consume ten to 15 percent much more power than a freezer on top model.

Check the Energy Star Rebate Locater on the web to determine if your new appliance will qualify for a rebate or tax credit.

five)Make your best 3 selections for each and every appliance and take a look at their web sites. Internet websites list estimated prices, and a lot of have charts for extra attributes obtainable with every single model. Brand name appliances have consumer comments and will list repair issues for many with the merchandise.

Check independent consumer reports on each in the appliances to establish what to anticipate from client service calls.
