Let’s get cooking!

13 Aug

Stainless steel is shiny, so it’s considered bling right? Big huge honkin’ bling baby!

Just because we’re considering selling this house (with gorgeous kitchen included) doesn’t mean we’ve spared any expense during the reno. We want it to look fabulous and a fabulous looking kitchen deserves beautiful appliances. Unfortunately because the kitchen is so small, I had walk past the Wolf Ranges and Sub Zero Refrigerators. And while Viking Appliances would be my first choice for a larger kitchen, we decided on Kitchen Aid for this kitchen with the exception of a Bosch paneled front dishwasher.

We compared prices at two appliance retailers, Tasco and Caplan’s and went with Caplan’s. Buying a package of appliances is definitely the way to get a better price and at the time of our purchase there was a Kitchen Aid promotion going on.

All in all, we purchased a fridge, stove, dishwasher, range hood and built-in compatible microwave and trim kit.  All of this plus tax came out to about $10,000. This is a major portion of the reno budget…but worth every penny! After living with skinny fridge for eight years, I can’t wait for my big-girl fridge, with ice and cold water to boot!
