You're going to LOVE your home! PROJECT #5: New Kitchen Appliances

Whether you love to cook and entertain or not, everybody wants a nice kitchen!

Project # 5. New kitchen appliances.

by +Sarah Marrinan - Keller Williams Premier Realty 

In terms of sheer functionality, new kitchen appliances can create an overwhelming upgrade to your family’s everyday life.

A new fridge will run you anywhere from $350 to $2,500 on average (though French door, custom and commercial versions can cost upwards of $10,000 or more); a new stove/oven range can run anywhere from $300 to $6,000 (with the commercial, 40-inch ranges running from $9,000 to $20,000+) and an appliance store dishwasher will cost you somewhere around $150 to $1,600.

Go Green.  A smart move is to include energy efficient appliances, windows, doors and more. Not only will these add-ons help you save money on energy, but there may also be tax breaks that you can take advantage of. For example, EnergySTAR products are eligible for a 30% tax break, making going green a financially and ecologically smart move.
