8-10k budget for new appliances
We are building a new home with a 200 sq ft kitchen (not including eating area). Beyond wanting an induction stove (still not sure range or cooktop), my DH and I are open to anything. We are not very knowledgable and everything looks pretty similar to us. When visiting appliance stores it seems like salesmen are pushing whatever product they want moved and aren't advising well. Are most brands pretty equal that are priced similar, or are there big differences? Where should I go to start figuring out what appliances to buy?
Better yet, we have a budget of $8,000-$10,000 for all appliances. What would you recommend? What brands are best based on our budget? Are there specific appliances you advise? It is just so overwhelming. I wish someone would just say - 'buy the following ______' (anyone on this forum want to chime in?)
Lastly, when is the best time to buy? We have several months before we need to commit to purchaseÃ¯Â¿Â½is it worth waiting for the 2014 models to come out? Better to buy sales like Memorial Day weekend or instead get from an outlet? Any other advice? THANKS!
