Refrigerators: Upgrading Appliances During a Kitchen Remodeling NJ Project
Last week we talked about the latest innovations we’re seeing among dishwashers and now we’ll chime in on the new updates available with today’s refrigerators.
Upgrading appliances is very common with any kitchen remodeling NJ project, and a new refrigerator is always on the wish list. Discover what’s new with this vital appliance and how technology is taking things to a previously unimaginable place.
Should you upgrade your refrigerator as part of a kitchen remodeling NJ project?
Installing new appliances during a renovation is always a good idea. It’s better to make these upgrades now than a few years down the road. When you know the specifications of the appliances, your design can work with them rather than against them. You want to make room for your dream refrigerator, don’t you? Imagine installing new kitchen cabinets and then learning your layout has now limited you to refrigerators you despise. Avoid that dilemma by planning for appliances as part of your kitchen remodeling NJ project. Here’s what you can also look forward to when you upgrade:
Doors that let you see inside without opening them
Do you ever find yourself staring inside of the refrigerator thinking about what you might want? Now you can just tap on your door and get a peak inside. Some newer models of refrigerators have added this feature as a way to prevent cold air loss and keep food fresher longer. You will also find that many of the recently manufactured refrigerators also have more compartments than previous models. This is to allow certain parts of the refrigerator to be accessed without exposing the entire unit.
Columns for wine
You’ve heard of a wine cooler, but are you familiar with a wine column? Wine enthusiasts can now dedicate an entire section of their kitchen to keeping their wine perfectly chilled. You will even see series of columns that can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate cooling unit. Your refrigerator, freezer, and wine can now be stored side-by-side in a perfectly accessible wino wonderland.
More customizable options for improved layouts
Another way these refrigerator columns can elevate your kitchen remodeling NJ project is by offering more layout options. Since the refrigerator and freezer (and wine column!) are separate entities, they don’t necessarily need to be right next to each other. This allows for much more creativity when designing your kitchen layout. Removable panels also allow for designing refrigerators that match your kitchen cabinets. If you don’t like the contrast of stainless steel or black appliances in between your kitchen cabinets, you can now customize your refrigerator to blend in with your cabinetry.
Better cooling systems for extended shelf life
Imagine what it would be like if your refrigerator had the power to extend the shelf life of your food. That is no longer a dream, it is a reality. New technology works to maximize food preservation with better climate control. Some even come equipped with LCD screens that monitors the current temperature so you know your unit is always working properly.
Fresher food, more luxuries, and better features are just a few of the new features you will enjoy when you upgrade your refrigerator as part of your kitchen remodeling NJ project. Don’t forget to scroll back to the last post to learn what’s new with dishwashers.
