Disclosure: This post is sponsored by The Home Depot, however all opinions are 100% my own. Are you planning a Kitchen Remodel? Read this article on how to choose kitchen appliances based on your style without sacrificing functionality.
When I first drew up my design board for our kitchen I already knew the look I wanted. I was going for Modern yet rustic with an industrial flare. I’ve always been drawn to a more industrial style yet I’ve never had the right house to totally pull it off. We’ve moved often and I never felt I had the right kitchen for this approach. I always just did what worked with the house, but now that we have this amazing fixer upper that I love my vision for a Rustic Modern kitchen can become a reality. Today I’m talking about how to choose kitchen appliances because it’s one of the first steps towards your final kitchen design.
Watch this video where I talk about some of the things I look for when choosing appliances, and then head over to The Home Depot Blog for a full list of considerations and the appliances I used.
How to Choose Kitchen Appilancces
Choosing kitchen appliances sounds super easy. You just run over to The Home Depot and pick out your favorite ones right? Nope. Appliances are actually a HUGE part of designing a kitchen. They set the stage and are very often the focal point of your kitchen.
There are a few things I try and think about when searching for kitchen appliances. Functionality always comes first. Even as somebody who constantly posts pictures of my house for the blog I would never sacrifice my everyday life just so I can have the perfect picture. After functionality comes the look. Obviously cost plays a part in there as well, but that’s how I start narrowing them down.
You’d be really surprised how much the look of appliances can change the overall look of your space. You can get kind of a bulky look and an industrial vibe. Or you can go with something that has soft edges for a more traditional look. There are very modern/minimalistic designs. It’s actually a lot harder than you might think to find the right appliances!

It’s great to know more about choosing kitchen appliances. I love how you said that functionality should come first. My wife and I want to remodel our kitchen, so I’ll keep that as our first priority when we buy appliances.

Thank you for explaining that the kitchen appliances are the focal point of a kitchen and shouldn’t just be picked out without planning. My husband and I are remodeling our kitchen right now. Neither of us has done this before, so your tips are very appreciated for helping us figure out the design we want!
Great post Ashley. I’ve worked with a lot of design professionals who could benefit from this post.
You’re so right, the appliances have a huge impact on the overall look. Just think, that’s exactly why the top end manufacturers all offer a line of appliances that accept cabinet fronts so the appliance can be hidden.
I love that you make a point of the sound of the dishwasher. With so many open floor plans these days, there’s nothing worse than a noisy dishwasher! The noise level is listed in decibels on pretty much every dishwasher label. And when appliance noise is a concern, a range hood with a remote fan can be great option. This way, the fan noise is outside the house.

I love that you mentioned how you prioritize functionality when selecting kitchen appliances. My wife and I enjoy cooking dinner in our kitchen on weekends, and we would like to find a range hood that would be able to fit and function properly in our small kitchen area. It may be a good idea to look for some custom range hoods online so that I know that it will be able to work in our current kitchen layout.
Wow, thanks for the very helpful information, now I know what needs to be in the kitchen, I will complete my kitchen. kookhuis.nl
