My Dream of Remodeling Our Kitchen

.
For a long time I have been wanting to go visit a Kitchen Appliance Showroom! New shiny stoves and refrigerators make me want to cook up a storm right there in the store. Everything is brand new, its like a new beginning for your kitchen.
Even though I would love to remodel our kitchen, most of the appliances are out of my family's budget. (beauty and shinyness is really expensive). But you can dream right?
I took pictures of some of my favorite stoves and refrigerator and even though I got strange looks from other people in the store, I wanted to show you some of the fancy appliances I would love to have!
My favorite brands (even though I have never used either of them) are Sub-Zero and Wolf. These two companies are actually the same (Maybe that's why I like them so much!). At the bottom of this page I will list some of the brands shown in the pictures and some websites about them to check out.

~Wolf~
I love this stove because of the six burners and large oven. I love the large chunky red knobs and the push out information screen that sticks out with the nobs. I think it is such a genius idea to have it retract into the stove so it will not get splattered with food and grime.

~Wolf~
Here is another wolf that does not have the information screen but has a slide out "shelf" right above the oven door. I don't know if I would use it but wouldn't it be fun to say, "yeah my stove has a shelf built right in."

I love this stove for its two ovens. It is difficult to make dessert when my mom is making dinner since the chance of the oven needing to be at the same temperature is unlikely. This way you can use both if necessary and if you are only heating something small up, you can use the smaller over saving gas and the world. The built in griddle does not do anything special for me, since we have an electric griddle and a large grill pan. But that's not enough to make me not want to buy it!!

I love the tube shaped handles on this fridge and freezer. Its tall design gives it an elegant feel to your home. I like that the motor is at the top so you don't have to feel the hot air on your feet when you stand in front of it. I like the double doors but it is inconvenient for my house. One side of my fridge is up against a wall not allowing one of the doors to open fully, limiting what you can fit in and easily take out.

Sorry but I don't remember what kind of fridge this is but I can tell you that I love the handles! They reach all the way to the floor! I also like that it is built into the cabinetry.
~Sub-Zero~
I love this large, glass doored, sophisticated refrigerator and freezer. The right side of the unit is devoted to refrigerating (including the two drawers underneath) and the other side is for freezing (along with the drawers). I love some of the simple things about this unit, from the stainless steel, to the lighting and to the organization. The glass door gives it a deli/commercial look that me and my mom love!

~Sub-Zero~
This unit is only a refrigerator but has a beautiful, full glass door! And once again there are my long round handles I love so much!

I love this oven for many reasons. The top oven is specially made to cook 15x faster than a normal oven cutting cooking times by a lot! It has a built in computer so you can tell it what you are making and it will cook it at the temperature and time it requires. I love the rounded top oven door and the bright color. You can choose from a few different colors to fit your kitchen. I love the mix between technology and fashion, with the computer screen and the analog clock and timer. To learn more visit the link at the bottom of the page (it's an awesome website)!

I don't know what kind of oven this is but I took the picture for the handles. I love them for some reason!

I love the ranch house, old feeling of this oven. The cream color and the black top are really nice together. The handles are like springs or coiled wire. The outside of the main oven compartment has a built in thermometer. The only down side is that it does not have a glass door so you can't see what is happening inside. But that's nothing new to me because my oven is so dirty that you can't even see inside. The sucky thing is that it can't be cleaned off and has been there since we bought the house!!

I like this one since it has been covered with wood paneling so it looks like it is part of the cabinetry. I don't know if it is really my style but its cool anyway.
