One of the most overlooked steps in buying an appliance is getting the right measurements. Not all kitchen appliance brands have standard measurements, so getting your kitchen’s specific space requirements should be one of the first steps you take when deciding on a good investment. Some important factors to consider:
- Keep appliances size-appropriate. Large-capacity models in small kitchens lack visual appeal and practicality.
- Measure your home’s entry ways so you can be sure you’ll be able to get your new appliance inside the house.
- Remember to take measurements of width, height and depth of where your appliance will sit.
- Be aware of the space an appliance will need to open and close.
