• What are the Benefits of a Range Hood?

    Although a range hood isn’t typically considered a “must-have” kitchen appliance, there are lots of good reasons to have one installed in your kitchen. For starters, range hoods help to expel gases and odors from inside your home. Range hoods also provide focused task lighting directly above your gas, electric, or induction cooktop. A range hood will also give your kitchen a more professional and luxurious look and feel.

  • Finding the Right Fridge for Your Space

    The average life expectancy of a refrigerator is between 10 and 20 years, which means it’s probably been quite a while since you last had to go fridge shopping, if you’ve ever had to shop for a new refrigerator at all. Whether it’s been a couple decades since your last fridge purchase or you’re shopping for a new refrigerator for the first time, there are more options to choose from today than ever before. Although this is definitely a good thing, it can be a bit overwhelming to walk into a kitchen appliance showroom in St. Louis and face all the different sizes, styles, configurations, and features new fridges offer. To help narrow your selection, here are some tips for finding the right refrigerator for your kitchen.

    Determine Your Available Space

    First and foremost, you’ll need to figure out what’s viable for your kitchen space so you don’t fall in love with a refrigerator that’s too big. In addition to the size of the refrigerator opening, you’ll also need to know the maximum available space for door swing. Also jot down the size of your kitchen entrance so you don’t select a fridge that can’t squeeze through the kitchen door for installation.

    Consider Your Food Storage Needs

    Another key driver in selecting a refrigerator is storage needs, both in terms of capacity and interior configurations. If you have a large family or do a week’s worth of grocery shopping at one time, you’ll obviously need a larger fridge that can store all of your fresh and prepared foods. Similarly, if you do a lot of entertaining look for a fridge with adequate shelf area for platters and flexible door shelving for bottled drinks.

    Match the Fridge to Your Kitchen Design

    It’s also important that you find a fridge that matches your kitchen’s design aesthetic, or the planned aesthetic of your kitchen remodel. Whether you have a sleek contemporary kitchen design or a farmhouse-chic aesthetic, you can find a refrigerator that complements the look and feel of your kitchen at a high-end appliance showroom.

    AUTCOhome is your source for the best high-end refrigerators and luxury kitchen appliances from the leading manufacturers, including Frigidaire, Sub-Zero, GE, and Thermador.

  • Why Should You Consider Updating Your Kitchen?

    Home improvement projects have become increasingly more popular in recent years, especially as homeowner’s realize more and more the benefits of home remodeling and renovation. One of the most popular spaces for a home renovation project is the kitchen. Not only is the kitchen the heart and soul of any home, but few home renovation projects offer as many tangible benefits as a kitchen remodel. The addition of just a few luxury appliances can transform the look and feel of your kitchen, so imagine what a full update can bring. Consider some of the notable benefits of kitchen remodeling and you might find yourself in a kitchen appliance showroom in St. Louis sooner than you thought.

    Increase the Value of Your Home

    In terms of return on investment, kitchen projects are among the most valuable home improvement undertakings. National data suggests that homeowners can recoup up to 75% of their kitchen remodeling costs, with some homeowners reporting triple-digit returns. In either case, an updated kitchen will add value to your home and make your home more desirable to potential homebuyers.

    Improve the Functionality of Your Kitchen

    One of the best reasons to update your kitchen, especially if you live in an older home, is to improve your comfort, convenience, and performance in the kitchen. With new luxury appliances and a smarter kitchen layout, you can vastly improve how you cook, clean, and entertain in your kitchen.

    Take More Pride in Your Living Space

    Any home improvement project will strengthen the love you have for your home, and the more pride you have in your living space the more likely you are to entertain friends, neighbors, coworkers, and anyone else. If you want your home to be the center of holiday get-togethers, Super Bowl watch parties, summer celebrations, and other festivities, start by updating the look and feel of your kitchen.

  • What’s the Right Way to Load Your Dishwasher?

    You might not think much about how you load plates, dishes, and silverware into the dishwasher, but how you load your dirty eating- and cooking-ware can make a big difference when you open up the dishwasher and take everything out. For example, did you know that dishwasher-safe plastics should be loaded on the top rack to keep them away from the hot water jets that can cause warping? Watch this video for more tips on loading a dishwasher.

  • Comparing Convection and Conventional Ovens

    When it comes to luxury kitchen appliances , a new oven is typically at or near the top of the list for most homeowners, especially the state-of-the-art convection ovens of today. Compared to conventional ovens, convection ovens have many benefits that more than justify the larger price tag—but the same can be said of almost all high-end luxury kitchen appliances. If you’re shopping for a new oven, read on to learn more about the differences between convection and conventional ovens and why a luxury convection oven is worth the investment.

    Cooking Technology

    The biggest difference between convection and conventional ovens stems from the technology and method with which each oven cooks, bakes, and broils. While conventional ovens cook food by surrounding it with hot air, convection ovens circulate the hot air for faster and more even heating. It doesn’t seem like much, but the simple addition of a fan took conventional ovens to whole new levels of capability and performance .

    Cooking Capabilities

    Speaking of cooking capabilities, convection ovens can do a lot more than conventional ovens, and they can do it all much better too. For example, while baking in a conventional oven requires rotating the food at least once to prevent uneven browning, convection ovens don’t pose this threat to baked food items since the circulation of heated air promotes more even cooking. Convection ovens also allow you to cook multiple items at once, which can be a real lifesaver during the holidays when time is of the essence.

    If you’re interested in a new convection oven for your home, visit one of the AUTCOhome luxury kitchen appliance showrooms in St. Louis and the surrounding areas. We are proud to be one of the premier high-end appliance supplier in the state, and we can help you find the best new oven for your home. Contact us online or call us at (314) 373-2000 if you have any questions about our inventory of luxury ovens and other high-end kitchen appliances.

  • What Items are Essential in a Luxury Kitchen?

    The kitchen is the heart and soul of a home, which is why most major home renovation projects center around this important cooking, dining, and entertaining space. Although the kitchen has long been considered one of the most important rooms in a home, recent trends have greatly benefited homeowners who are looking to renovate their kitchen. For example, there are a greater number of luxury kitchen appliances and features available today than ever before. But what else is essential in the modern luxury kitchen? Here are some essential items to consider for your luxury kitchen upgrade.

    Built-In Refrigerators

    There are plenty of high-end appliances that make up the modern luxury kitchen, but few can transform the look and feel of a kitchen more than a built-in refrigerator . Not only do these refrigerators offer remarkable storage space and high-tech food preserving features, but the sleek and streamlined built-in look will give your kitchen a luxurious look and feel.

    Exotic Materials

    Another staple of luxury kitchens is the use of exotic materials for flooring, countertops, and cabinet veneers. Zebrawood, African mahogany, and teak are popular materials for homeowners considering exotic wood countertops, while reclaimed wood and high-end natural stone are increasingly popular flooring options.

    Walk-in Pantry

    If your kitchen has room to spare, or if you want to make better use of a nearby closet, consider a walk-in pantry. Although these kitchen features conjure up idyllic images of yesteryear’s kitchen full of preserves and jams, today’s walk-in pantries feature modern conveniences such as a wine refrigerator or similar luxury appliance that can elevate the functionality of the kitchen.

    Whether you’re planning a total kitchen remodel or just need a new fridge or dishwasher, AUTCOhome is your source for the best selection of name-brand luxury kitchen appliances in St. Louis.
