How to Find a Luxury Range That Fits Your Lifestyle & Budget
Published March 1st, 2023 by Manuel Escobar
Sometimes a standard operating range isn’t enough, you may want something with more style, power, and longevity such as a luxury range. However, most of the time being able to purchase a luxury range is a luxury in itself. Sometimes, luxury brands and other appliances are way out of budget so it may seem impossible to find one that fits your lifestyle and budget.
Fortunately, there’s a wide variety of options available from brands such as Fisher & Paykel, SMEG, Monogram, and others! It may be challenging to find the perfect fit for your lifestyle and budget. But fear not, as there are some essential factors to consider that will help you narrow down your options and make the right choice.
What’s Your Lifestyle & Budget?
The first question you should ask yourself is, what’s your lifestyle? Do you absolutely love to cook and make elaborate meals and entertain others? Or do you use your range mainly for simple cooking? Knowing these basic things will help you choose the right size, features, and cooking power needed for your new range.
Next, you need to know your budget. Luxury ranges can vary from a few thousand to tens of thousands of dollars, so it’s crucial for you to know what you can afford. Once you’ve set your budget, you can begin exploring the different options that fit without your price range. Regarding features, luxury ranges offer a wide variety of options. Some come with very high-end features like dual fuel burners, convection ovens, griddle cooktops, and self-cleaning options. Consider what features are essential to you and prioritize that accordingly.
Of course, aside from budgeting, the biggest factor is which luxury brand you want to go for. High-end appliance brands like Thermador, Monogram, SKS, and Gaggenau typically offer outstanding performances. Researching the brand’s reputation and customer reviews can give you a good idea of the range’s quality. On the other hand, brands such as Fisher & Paykel and SMEG are generally known for offering more affordable options while still providing great quality appliances.
You should always consider looking at other brands as well to ensure that you're getting the best value for your money. It's important to note that the "best quality" can mean different things to different people. If you are looking for a range with a lower price point, Fisher & Paykel and SMEG may be good options to consider. However, you may need to sacrifice some features or design elements that are available in higher-end ranges. It's important to evaluate your specific needs and priorities to determine which range is the best fit for you.
Now, let’s not forget about aesthetics! Luxury ranges are not only functional but also make a statement in your kitchen. Consider the range’s style, color, and overall design and ensure it matches your own kitchen’s overall look and feel. More importantly, make sure it matches your lifestyle. It goes hand in hand with look and features, though a luxury range may look amazing, it might not have the features you want, and vice versa.
Your Budget, Lifestyle, & Choice
Finding a luxury range that fits your lifestyle and budget requires careful consideration of your needs,budget, features, brand, and aesthetics. With the right approach, you can find the perfect range that will elevate your cooking experience and add a touch of luxury to your kitchen. Of course, it's difficult to say which brand is best to work with when on a budget as everyone has a different lifestyle and choice.
It's also worth noting that there may be other brands outside of this list that offer affordable and high quality ranges. It's always a good idea to do research and compare prices and features of multiple brands before making a purchase decision.
