When Summer weather brings the heat, is your refrigerator really doing the job?  Not only are the right appliances key to any kitchen project, but keeping foods fresh and beverages at optimum serving temperatures is essential when it comes to refrigeration.

Designs for today’s living— Refrigeration needs have changed considerably over the last 10 years. We are eating healthier, buying more fresh foods, and stocking up less on convenience frozen foods. With open floor plans, designers have taken a fresh look at adding appliances to spaces that support the way we live.

Product flexibility and performance— With so many choices in sizing, capability, and personalization, it is easy to understand why multiple refrigeration products are specified in these well-appointed spaces. Manufacturers have expanded their product offerings to meet the rising demand and the performance bar just keeps getting higher.

Extending living spaces to include the outdoors— Professional grade refrigerators, freezers, and ice makers that are truly worthy of consideration for outdoor spaces.

Helpful Checklist For Before You Purchase

When outfitting your kitchen with new refrigeration, talk to your design team to confirm the following details:

  • Check the sizing, specifications, and power requirements of your chosen products.
  • Make sure you are ordering the desired model— panel-ready or manufacturer-specific is one of the most important distinctions.
  • Set up a showroom visit to experience products in-person and ask questions.
  • Decide on appliance pulls from the manufacturer or match kitchen hardware with larger appliance pulls.  These make take time to order, so do not delay.
  • Check on manufacturer ship availability and future service providers in your market.
