The best appliance sales of the season will be happening soon. If you’re planning on upgrading your kitchen, here are some appliance trends you’ll want to know about – as well as expert installation tips from your Brooklyn NY plumber.
What’s Hot: The Colorful Kitchen
Stainless steel appliances have had their moment in the sun, and now homeowners are embracing colorful appliances. Choosing a bright hue for your stove can make it the visual focal point of the kitchen, or choose everything in a matching hue for a clean, contemporary look.
What’s Not: Appliances that Don’t Fit
It’s really important to know that the appliances you purchase will fit in the home you have. Measure the space you have available before you go shopping. There are several tape measure apps available for Android and iPhones to make this easy. This is especially important if you’re buying appliances that you might not be able to return easily.
What’s Hot: Go for the Gold
Interestingly, this trend is true for both kitchen plumbing and bathroom plumbing! Gold fixtures – faucets, handles, drains – are making a comeback, at the same time hardware – drawer pulls, cabinet handles, and more – are going gold as well. Look for a wide variety of finish options and textures. Remember, the easiest way to freshen up a kitchen without spending a ton of money is to have new fixtures installed, change the hardware, and redo the color scheme.
What’s Not: Lowest Bidder Appliance Installation
Be aware that you always have choices when it comes to appliance installation in Brooklyn. The ‘free’ installation offered by some home improvement stores is provided by low-bid contractors who may or may not be trustworthy and reliable. Choosing a local, experienced Brooklyn plumber means you deal directly with a small business that takes pride in doing every job the right way.
