Should Your Appliances Be from the Same Brand?
Published June 13, 2022 by Manuel Escobar
Picking out appliances can be very overwhelming. There are so many brands, features, models, colors, and so much more to consider when purchasing an appliance. Though the one question that keeps getting asked is, “Should I buy from the same brand?”.
Our answer, it’s completely up to you. There’s no defining rule that says you should purchase just one brand or multiple. Each homeowner is different, which in turn creates a different appliance shopping experience and a completely different and unique kitchen. So, if you’ve ever heard that everything needs to match, it’s just not true.
To Mix, or Not to Mix
There are so many different brands out there that offer great features and experiences for different people. Sometimes brands even create incentives or promos if you purchase appliances across the same brand. It can also make it an easier process to purchase all your appliances from the same brand. By purchasing the same brand refrigerator, dishwasher, or range can help create a clean and perfectionist look. Especially since same brand appliances are already meant to go with one another.
On the other hand, you could purchase appliances from several different brands to get the most out of their features and different uses. Sometimes, customers don’t care about the model, color, or brand and pick out whatever they want based on what looks right. If that’s the case, then great! Purchasing new appliances is a tailored experience, it’s not always the same. You pick out what’s best for you and your kitchen or other room. The only downside to picking different brands is that not all of the colors will match. Some brands use different hues for blacks and greys so it might make your kitchen look a little off.
Again, there’s no major incentive aside from any special promotions that might occur from buying the same brand of appliances. Likewise, there is nothing wrong with purchasing completely different brand appliances. As mentioned, in the end, it’s more of an aesthetic decision if you want everything to match or at least be the same. Some homeowners really strive for perfectionism, and they love to see appliances have matching knobs, handles, and logos. Same brand appliances are also found in bundles more often anyways, making it an easier purchase.
Whether you want to match appliances or not, it’s completely up to you. Some people want a perfect matching kitchen, some just want it to have great features. It’s not to say you can’t have both, you can do whatever you’d like. Only you know what the perfect kitchen or room looks like for you, so shop as you please!
