While choosing cooking appliances, a number of things must be kept in mind in order to optimize purchase and minimize wastage.
Refrigerators take up a lot of space in the kitchen area. If they are not of perfect size they can look out of context and out of ratio and can mess with the ambiance of the kitchen. Food storage requirements should also be considered while doing so. A bigger refrigerator will consume more power unnecessarily and will adversely effect the monthly budget. The orientation of the refrigerator is one more thing to think of. The top vs bottom argument is equally valid but nowadays customizable refrigerators are introduced in the market which can change their orientation in real time.
If you are low on budget then spending more to get a favorite color is not recommended. A simple Grey oven will do the same job and also remain neutral to changing trends. But do make sure to check the usage of the microwave before buying one. Keep in mind that the oven, though is not a very attractive device but it is very useful and having one in the kitchen only adds to its looks.
Gas vs Electricity:
This one decision will decide the cost every month your pocket has to bear after you’ve started using it. Sometimes using the electric is hassle free but gas is cleaner and easier.
Make sure you have proper ventilation in your kitchen. There should be no choking or coughing while cooking. The environment must remain healthy and fresh to breathe.
Considering the environmental factor will not only benefit your wallet but also your surroundings. Using reusable materials instead of disposable kitchen wares will save a lot of money and will reduce a lot of waste.
