At Top Line, we work with 150+ kitchen designers in the New Jersey area. Our customers appreciate the fact that our kitchen package specialists smoothly coordinate the design process with their designer, providing appliance specifications, layout information, and specifics about timeline for delivery and installation of appliances.
Whether your kitchen needs a minor face lift or a complete gut job, soliciting help from a certified kitchen designer can be well worth the investment. Not only do kitchen designers have access to planning tools and technology that most homeowners don’t, but they have the inside scoop on trends, new materials, building codes and technical quirks. And their kitchen remodel expertise can save you a lot of time, money and frustration. (Especially with coordinating kitchen cabinets with appliances… like that panel ready Sub Zero refrigerator you have your eye on! You want it to sit flush with surrounding cabinetry right?)

When shopping for a new dishwasher, many customers are concerned with the noise level of their purchase.
Dishwasher noise levels are rated in decibels, and the lower the decibel number the quieter the dishwasher. The quality of insulation is important, and stainless steel tubs tend to be quieter than plastic tubs.
A difference of just a few decibels may not seem to be much, but a dishwasher that is just one decibel more is actually 30 percent louder. A dishwasher that is four decibels more is twice as loud.
A decibel rating of 60 will make it hard to have a conversation in the kitchen, models rated from 41 to 50 decibels will be virtually silent.
Here is a list of some of our favorite dishwasher models and their decibel rating:

A lot of customer ask us, “what is best way to clean stainless steel?” We find the best every day product (beside the stainless steel cleaner we carry) is regular Lemon Clean Furniture Spray by Pledge .
You can clean the surface with a Windex style cleaner, but to polish the surface, Lemon Clean Pledge really gives you great results.
Please keep in mind that you should apply the cleaner using a microfiber cloth and wipe in the direction of the grain of the Stainless Steel. The more you clean with the Pledge, the more of a wax surface you will build up to resist finger prints and marks.
