When it comes to washers, dryers, fridges, ovens, dishwashers and stoves, it’s all about smart and sleek. What are the other big trends?
What’s new in the kitchen and laundry room this year? Appliances are smarter and sleeker than ever before.
Here are a few appliance trends that are getting everyone talking — from pedestal washing machines that let you do two loads at once to smart ovens that allow you to preheat on the go.
1. French door wall ovens
Gone are the days of leaning over a hot door. French door ovens solve that problem in a stylish way and are especially great for small kitchens.
2. Smart ovens
How nice would it be to preheat your oven from your phone without having to be home? Now you can.
3. Dishes, power washed
Some new dishwashers feature powerful spray jets that target hard-to-reach areas.
4. Pedestal washing machines
The Kenmore Elite Pedestal washer lets you do two loads at once, with a main chamber that handles big loads and a smaller chamber below.
5. Smart laundry
Download the app onto your smartphone for the Kenmore Elite Smart Washer and Dryer, and you can start and monitor laundry settings on the go.
6. Stackables, perfected
Kenmore’s stackable Flip Control dryer has a control panel that can easily be moved from the top to the bottom to keep dryer controls in reach.
7. Matte white appliances
This year, we’re seeing matte-finish white appliances with sleek stainless handles and pulls.
8. Colored stainless steel
Bronze and black stainless steel fridges, stoves, dishwashers and wall ovens are all on trend.
