Many homeowners want a kitchen with that wow factor that will make their space the talk of the neighborhood. Aesthetic appeal aside, the best modern kitchens are efficient spaces where cooking is a joy, and you can even entertain at the same time. If you’ve not looked at kitchens for a few years, you may be amazed at some of the available options. But, once you’ve used these features for a while, you may wonder how you ever managed without them. Let’s take a look at four appliance features that will make your kitchen a special place to work, eat, and entertain.
- Adjustable Refrigerator Shelves
Many of us struggle to use our refrigerator storage effectively because we try to live with the spacing limitations. But, many modern refrigerators now have easily adjustable shelves that allow you to make the space work best for you. This may not be the most exciting appliance feature on our list, but it can be a lifesaver when you’re entertaining. Let’s face it, most of us creatures of habit, and when we cook at home, we fall into a routine. But, if you want to entertain more, you cannot serve the same meals every time, and you need variety. Having adjustable refrigerator storage will allow you to store foods that you wouldn’t normally buy easily.
- A Commercial Range
Many people shop for a commercial range at a restaurant supply store, but this is not necessary. Many homeowners now have access to these ranges at their favorite appliance stores due to the popularity of certain cooking shows. A commercial range is a powerhouse when you’re cooking, and as an added bonus, they look fantastic. The only real drawback to this type of range is that it can take up more space than you might imagine. If you have a smaller kitchen or limited space, make sure to check the dimensions carefully before you make a final commitment to buy.
- An All-in One Coffee Machine
We have come a long way from the standard drip coffee machines that we used on our countertops. We’re not talking about pod or espresso machines, the current in-vogue trend is the all-in-one coffee maker. These coffee machines can meet several needs, and they are a fantastic time saver in a busy kitchen. When you choose your all-in-one coffee maker, look for a machine that can filter water and manual controls. The best machines can even grind coffee beans, and they look fantastic on a countertop. If you love to serve coffee to visitors, an all-in-one coffee machine is a great investment.
- An Immersion Blender
A standard blender is a bulky item that can take up a lot of kitchen storage space. A better and more up to date alternative is an immersion blender. Many people that have made the switch will never go back to a standard blender. Immersion blenders are easier to use and clean than a series of standard blender attachments. The only thing that you need to remember is to unplug the appliance before you take it apart for cleaning. The immersion blender attachments are usually dishwasher safe making cleanup a breeze.
If you add one or more of these appliance features to your kitchen, you will notice an immediate difference. These appliances do add a great deal to the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen, but they are very practical too. They will certainly make your kitchen more efficient and fun to use when cooking or entertaining.
