So You Bought New Appliances…Now What?

Unless you opt for white-glove service, you likely have no clue what to do after your appliance purchase is complete. From proper installation to appropriate decor, it’s not always clearcut on how to complete a kitchen renovation. The First Coast Supply team is here with all of the guidance you need to bring your project full-circle. So, let’s dive in:

Inspect the Unit and Verify its Settings

All appliances will require your attention to ensure they operate in accordance with your habits. It’s important to make sure they’re placed exactly where you want in the kitchen. If your fridge, stove or oven is off by even a centimeter then your whole kitchen routine could be thrown off.

Once you ensure your appliance is in the right spot, it’s time to program the tech. If you purchased a new refrigerator, check inside the unit for a dial. Set the unit to the correct freezing and cooling temperatures to make sure your food is stored safely. In general, all modern appliances will require you to manually set the clock and display preferences.

Update Your Design to Accommodate the Look of New Appliances

Don’t be surprised if your current kitchen design feels a bit stale against your new and improved technology. Appliances on the market today look futuristic compared to what was available a decade ago. The clean lines, unique colors and touchscreen panels may clash against an older kitchen.

If you’re on a budget, the best way to breathe new life into your home is with a fresh coat of paint. We’re not just talking about the walls, either! Painting your cabinets is a simple way to give your home a fresh look. Another cost-friendly upgrade is to add an on-trend backsplash. Subway tile is one of the best looking and most affordable options on the market.

Read Up on the Best Appliance Maintenance Habits

Every type of appliance requires different day-to-day maintenance. Your cleaning routine all comes down to the finish, tech and your lifestyle. For example, families with little kiddos are far more concerned with fingerprints than anyone else.

Do your research online and chat with your dedicated First Coast Supply appliance professional. It can be as simple as buying the right cleaning products and learning how to use them.
