Of course I understand it might not be in the budget to completely redesign your current Minneapolis kitchen, but you never know. Viewing real estate every week keeps me up-to-date on current kitchen trends, and most of the luxury homes I visit have something I love. Right now my current love is kitchen appliances. We are in the market for a new home so naturally I have shopped around for my favorite appliances. Being a cook, I have big eyes and maybe not the budget, but it is fun to dream anyway!
There are a couple great appliance show rooms in Minneapolis – St Paul metro area to shop for any appliances you might need. They are very accommodating and are happy to work with your project, whether it be a remodel or new home build. I already have my appliances picked out and am just waiting for the final decision on if we build or buy a resale home. Don’t be afraid to check out what’s new, like microwave drawers or dishwasher pull outs. There are truly some innovative ideas on the market today.
- Guyer’s Builder Supply – consumers have the option of working through their builder or dealing directly with the company. If you walk the showroom yourself and are building new, tell them who your builder is and they will give you the negotiated rates. But remember that some appliances, like Dacor, have fixed rates that are not negotiable. There are numerous options available so set aside at least an hour to see it all. Locations are in Apple Valley, Blaine, Bloomington, Minneapolis, Monticello, Plymouth, and Woodbury. Visit http://www.guyers.com/ for more info!
- Warner’s Stellian – open to the public daily, they showcase 30+ major brands of appliances, including items for the kitchen, laundry, freezers and more. They offer live displays so you can try the appliance before you buy and also free delivery in the metro-area for purchases over $500. Locations are in Apple Valley, Edina, Maple Grove, Minneapolis, St Paul, Woodbury. Visit http://www.warnersstellian.com/ for directions!
Remember, it’s your home and you know what you like. Before going to the showroom, understand what appliances you need and how you will use them. If you have certain dimensions a piece must fit in, bring the measurements so the salesman can tell you what will work. Have fun…it might take you a few trips to pick out the perfect pieces!
