White Appliances Gaining Popularity

While most of our customers choose stainless steel appliances, sleek and updated white appliances have gained popularity. These new models are not the white appliances you may have grown up with.

Whirlpool has recently debuted their White Ice series.  The Whirlpool White Ice Collection was “a trend of diversifying from stainless steel appliances as the only mark of luxury.” The goal with the Ice Collection was to achieve a simple but sophisticated European style.

Vikig offers a wide range of metal and color finishes. While the bright colors are tempting, the way a white range creates a clean and seamless look across the white cabinets makes a good argument for matching the range to your cabinets.

Working with a Kitchen Designer

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?)

What’s the Quietest Dishwasher?

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:
