Building new house - one brand for all appliances or not
I am building a new house and it will have the following in the Kitchen:
2. Stand-Alone 36" French Door Fridge
3. Double wall oven
4.. Gas Cooktop (prefer 48" - but may be forced to go 36")
5. Built-in Microwave.
I will also have a wine fridge in a butler's pantry - although I plan to go with the Wine Enthusiast N'Finity pro 46 for that based on my experience (currently own one) and price.
I am faced with the question -- is it better to go with one appliance brand for the whole suite (like Kitchen Aid), or mix and match the best of each category. For example, my current home has the E-Lux double wall oven and I love it, and would buy it again in a second. I know Bosch DW's are highly regarded and would love to go that route. I also love the Kitchen Aid 48" cooktop with grill + griddle.
Thoughts? Does it matter if everything matches? Will it impact resale?
