There are dozens of decisions to be made when planning a NJ kitchen remodeling project. One that is unavoidable, and has greater importance than some think, is the appliance selections. The first consideration is whether or not to keep and reuse some or all of your existing kitchen appliances. Next, will the appliances be in the same location? Changing kitchen appliance locations, even if you are reusing the existing, will affect the electrical and plumbing costs. New appliances, which will vary in size and style, will affect the the kitchen cabinet sizing and spacing.
The finish also needs to be considered. The most common appliance finish selected is stainless steel, which is like blue jeans, as it visually works with just about any color or finish of the other kitchen remodeling materials. Other appliance color or finishes include white and black plus some bold colors. Oil-rubbed bronze appliances can also be purchased. The Design Build Planners created options for a kitchen design build remodeling project for Total Renovations in Somerset County, New Jersey. These particular homeowners in Belle Mead specifically requested Jenn-Air appliances with an oil-rubbed bronze finish. They were upon and uncommitted to all other kitchen design decisions.
Other than the standard range, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher selections, there are other appliances to be considered for a NJ kitchen remodel. Appliances such as beverage center, warming drawer, dishwasher drawer, microwave drawer, and microwave-convection oven combination. The overall appliance selections will also have a big impact on the overall kitchen remodeling budget. Over the past year, Design Build Planners have designed kitchen projects that had appliance costs ranging from $2,800 to $40,000.
