In my last blog about my kitchen remodel, I told you we selected our cabinets.  Before they can actually be ordered though, appliances need to be chosen so that the cabinets can be ordered to spec.  Knowing that appliances are the workhorse of a kitchen, I knew we were in for an investment and I really wanted to get it right.

Phil had his heart set on a Wolf range, so that clued in our kitchen designer, Erin Hoopes, to what level appliances we were looking for.  She recommended Appliance Distributors Unlimited as a starting place to shop.  I’m so glad we went there – what a treat!  I’ve always bought appliances at one of the big home improvement stores, so I had no idea that making purchases like this could actually be a positive experience.  We actually had an appointment with Joe, one of ADU’s superb sales people.  We were truly impressed with how knowledgeable Joe was.  He knew the pros and cons of every model they carried as well as which manufacturers were offering discounts and rebates at that time.  In fact, we took advantage of the Sub/Wolf package discount and walked out of there with some pretty sweet appliances.

Next stop:  Faucet, sink and knobs.
