How to Choose Home Appliances

Kitchen appliances and whitegoods are necessities that we cannot live without. They provide much-needed functionality and are a true investment. For these reasons, they need to be high in quality, reliable and ensure longevity.

Choosing kitchen appliances and laundry appliances in Perth shouldn’t be rushed, nor should it be based on price or style alone. Consideration should be applied to the type of appliance, its functionality,  quality, price, and design to select the best appliance for your needs and budget.

Types of Appliances

There are many types of appliances for a home, most of which are a necessity. Essential kitchen appliances and whitegoods include a fridge, oven, cooktop, rangehood, and washing machine. Non-essential kitchen appliances include microwaves, dishwashers, wine/bar fridges, while non-essential laundry appliances include clothes dryers. Although these are non-essential, they do provide a convenience that many cannot live without.

Each of the appliances listed above is available in various types. For example; fridges are available as; side-by-side, bottom freezer, top freezer, French door. Ovens can be built-in or freestanding; then there are single ovens, double ovens, steam ovens, combinations microwave ovens, etc.

The key to choosing the right type of appliances is to research the options and select those that best fit your needs.

Appliance Quality

The quality of an appliance is of the utmost importance. It’s critical to purchase appliances and whitegoods that comprise quality manufacturing, provide a decent warranty and have a good rating.

Appliance Price

For the most part, price is in correlation with quality. But this isn’t always the case. For example, a fridge with the latest smart technology may not offer the same quality as a standard refrigerator; you are purely paying more for the ‘bells and whistles’. Keep this in mind when shopping for any home appliance. Quality always trumps features.

Appliance Design

Appliances and whitegoods should never be selected on design alone; this should be the least important aspect of the selection process. If an appliance stacks up in terms of quality, then a selection can be made based on design. While all appliances are different, today, the majority comprise stainless steel finishes. However, some are still available in a traditional white finish or a contemporary black finish.
