One of the most important considerations in any kitchen design project is the appliances. For a long time, most kitchen appliances more or less did the same thing, but that's no longer the case. Not all kitchen appliance brands are created equal. Although many large brands may offer various kitchen appliances, the best fridge, oven, stovetop, or dishwasher on the market could all be manufactured by separate companies. Best Brands For Kitchen Appliances

There are a number of factors that are important to consider when designing a new kitchen space. First, you need to consider how much room you have to work with because that will determine the size, and design, of the appliances you can consider. Next, you have to consider the décor and architecture of the other rooms and features in your house, ensuring that your new kitchen will fit seamlessly as the centerpiece of your home. You’ll need to assess your budget for the design or renovation and select the appropriate cabinetry, tiles, and countertops.

So, let’s look at the top five kitchen appliance brands!

KitchenAid

Established 1919, KitchenAid has developed a reputation as a premier choice for high-quality kitchen gadgets and appliances. There are various KitchenAid ranges available, but if you're looking for anything other than a dual-fuel range, then there are better alternatives on the market. As a side note, if you don't already have a KitchenAid stand mixer, then be sure to pick one up as this is an essential appliance for any kitchen.

 Bosch

Bosch has been making some of the best kitchen appliances in the world, and the truth is you don't last that long in business if you don't make high-quality products. All of Bosch's appliances are expertly constructed, with various styles and features for any preference. Bosch also provides their appliances with a safe and reliable warranty. With a vast selection of kitchen appliances worthy of acknowledgement, Bosch’s preeminent product is their industry-leading line of dishwashers. The best features found in the new lineup of Bosch dishwashers are exciting. The theme of the lineup is definitely customization options, and Bosch dishwashers certainly have the most customizable interiors on the market today.

 LG

You may already be familiar with South Korean powerhouse LG. They are one of the world’s leading electronics brands and have built a reputation for making long-lasting products for a fair price. In recent years, LG has been making an impressive number of sleek, innovative kitchen appliances.  Since the launch of their Smart appliance line in 2014, LG has been innovating in the kitchen appliances space. What’s interesting is just how good the new LG kitchen appliances are across the entire lineup. While a lot of companies excel in one particular area, LG have managed to produce remarkable options for ranges, fridges, and dishwashers.

Frigidaire

Frigidaire is known for being one of the most consistently reliable kitchen appliance brands in the world. With their expansive selection of kitchen appliances, you could depend on Frigidaire to outfit your entire kitchen for all your appliance needs. That being said, Frigidaire has built a reputation on their industry standard line of refrigerators. With a broad variety of styles and features, it’s easy to see how Frigidaire became a global leader in refrigerator manufacturing. With single door, double-door, and French door options available, Frigidaire no doubt offer the perfect fridge for you, no matter the size of your kitchen. 

GE

GE has long been considered a leader in the home appliances industry, and their new kitchen appliances prove that this reputation is still well-deserved. GE is known to have one of the best customer service departments of any major appliance manufacturer as well, and their warranties are among the best in the industry. All of the GE kitchen appliances are excellent, depending upon your design sensibilities, but their wall-mount ovens and portable dishwashers stand out and are among the best you can buy. 

Of course, it all comes down to your own personal design preferences.
