From Sourdough to Weeknight Dinner—How to Shop for a Dream Kitchen That Does it All!

Understanding which kitchen appliances suit your household is one of the most important considerations when it comes to designing your dream kitchen. Let’s go over a basic guide to see which options are a match!


Top freezer refrigerators and bottom-freezer refrigerators are standard options, so you can count on them to be the most budget-friendly. Their simple design also means you can enjoy trendy, higher-end features such stainless steel and counter-depth design at a lower price point.

Households with families should consider French door or side-by-side refrigerators. Ultimately, deciding which one comes down to how you plan to use your freezer space. If you (or your little ones) like having more freezer access, consider side-by-side refrigerators that let you stack frozen items at eye-level.

For easier access to your fridge space, choose a French door refrigerator. The wide shelving of French door refrigerators offers more space to accommodate pizza boxes, cheese platters, or large-dish items.

For a truly high-end kitchen aesthetic, opt for counter-depth or built-in refrigerators. Note: counter-depth fridge require no professional installation, whereas built-in refrigerators do.

Cooktops and Ovens

If space and affordability are priorities, freestanding ranges are the biggest bang for your buck. Cook dishes on a gas, electric, or induction cooktop while you roast or bake in the oven. Freestanding or standalone ranges also typically run at a lower price point and take up less space in your kitchen.

For a luxury look, consider drop-in cooktops paired with a single wall oven or a double wall oven, and make dessert and dinner at the same time! Built-in wall ovens are especially convenient for buyers who have difficulty bending over, and in-counter cooktops and rangetops give you more space for cabinets underneath.


Traditional built-in dishwashing machines are widely available, meaning a bigger selection of major brands, lower costs, and easy installation. With the most capacity on the market, built-in dishwashers are must-haves for family households.

Sleek drawer dishwasher are fantastic supplemental washing units ideal for small loads or fine dinnerware. They also typically fit inside your standard dishwasher space, meaning easy installation. Use two as a pair to run separate washes at the same time!

Portable dishwashers run by connecting to your kitchen faucet and a power outlet, making them superstars in apartments, lofts, or condos. Best of all, their portable design means you can take them wherever you live!


Get a fully integrated kitchen using microwave drawers, built-in microwaves, over-the-range microwave, or microwave wall oven combos. Their sleek style also comes with extra counterspace for meal prep.

Traditional countertop microwaves are just as great, with a little more flexibility. Switch up their location, from above the fridge, to a kitchen cart or counter, to inside a pantry.
