Tips on Choosing New Appliances for Your Kitchen Remodel

There are plenty of aspects in a Kensington MD kitchen remodel that homeowners have the freedom of choosing and customizing. You can order custom cabinetry, install custom-cut counters, or opt for a one-of-a-kind natural stone backsplash. Some decisions that you make will be pre-built, and those choices pertain to your new kitchen appliances. After all, a Kensington MD kitchen remodel isn’t quite complete without the perfect new appliances to complement the new kitchen style. Selecting these kitchen appliances and determining where to install them in a Kensington MD kitchen remodel can make a major difference in appearances and accessibility. Check out these tips to help you make your choices, and call Signature Kitchens Additions & Baths for more ways we can assist with your kitchen remodel!


A Kensington MD kitchen remodel isn’t quite complete without the perfect new appliances to complement the new kitchen style.

The Refrigerator

Appliances are a critical aspect of any kitchen design as they tend to determine the work triangle and affect the layout of the rest of the kitchen. For your Kensington MD kitchen remodel, let’s start with the refrigerator. It’s likely going to be the biggest and, therefore, the most eye-catching appliance in the room. So, it’s certainly best to choose one that suits the size of your kitchen, opens the way you like, and looks like a visually appealing model. If the refrigerator is too much of a distraction from your intended kitchen design, you can explore custom cabinet panels to disguise it with your wall cabinetry.

Cooking Appliances

The next critical appliance of your Kensington MD kitchen remodel is the cooking station. Homeowners can choose among several styles of cooktops or oven ranges. If the cooktop is a homeowner’s preferred appliance, they will also need to consider installing a wall oven or the heating element (gas, induction, or electric). Today, these cooking appliances also come in various styles and colors, not just the standard stainless steel option. It’s up to you and your kitchen designer to make this kitchen appliance stand out or stay subtle.

Sink and Dishwasher

The last station in the work triangle is the sink. The sink and faucet of a kitchen design are very telling of the overall kitchen style. With the opportunity to complete a Kensington MD kitchen remodel, use this chance to update your sink setup to one that’s both practical and polished. It makes the most sense to install the dishwasher right by the kitchen sink for efficient cleanup. Factor in this consideration as you determine the layout of your kitchen.
