Appliances Perfect For Small Spaces
Almost 20 years ago the housing industry’s motto was bigger is always better. However, there is beginning to be a shift with that way of thinking. As more and more millennials enter the housing industry, they are searching for a simpler lifestyle. Much of this lifestyle begins with a smaller home as there is less cost and maintenance involved. In addition, with less space, there is more room in their budgets to spend on the high-quality amenities that they value.
An example of one of these high-quality amenities are appliances. They’re many different appliances that are able to fit in small spaces but also offer high quality conveniences.
A great example of what this looks like can be seen below. While this GE Galley kitchen is small, it provides all of the appliances necessary in a home.
In particular, some products to keep an eye out for that allow for small space convenience are: a Portable Dishwasher, Under the Sink Dishwasher and Microwave in a Drawer.
When looking at a Microwave in a Drawer, a great example is Dacor's Renaissance 30"/24" Microwave In a Drawer. This product allows you to have more counter space for cooking preparation and for small kitchen appliance storage. Features include: Drawer configuration, automatic drawer opening, sensor cooking, beverage center, multiple sequence cooking, keep warm, easy minute, automatic start, and control lock.
Another appliance that allows for more counter and cabinet space is the Under-The-Sink Dishwasher. GE carries an under the sink dishwasher called the GE Spacemaker Under-The-Sink Dishwasher (GSM2260VSS). It comes in black, white, and stainless and features include: Spacemaker upper rack, two-stage filtration with Extra Fine filter, Piranha hard food disposer, Hot Start option, 64 dBA, and is made in America.
In addition to Under-The-Sink Dishwashers GE also has Portable Dishwashers (GSC3500DBB). These would be perfect for a tiny house or a small apartment. They are easy to move but also feature: cycle progress indicators, filtration with ExtraFine filter, muliple wash cycles, ENERGY STAR qualified, and QuietPower motor.
In conclusion, as millennial homeowners begin purchasing smaller homes it's important to take note of the appliances that will fit in these smaller, compact spaces.
