What are the basic appliances a new home needs?

Congratulations on your new home! Now, that you are the proud owner of a home there are some things you’ll need to get to make sure all that live there are comfortable and can enjoy the space, plus get their needs meet. One of the things every new home needs is appliances, and with so many options, brands, and styles it can be hard to settle on the right ones to get for your home. Don’t worry, Maydone is here to help! 

Equipping a new home with the things that you need can be a daunting and intimidating task, so let’s set a few ground rules to get you started, here are the most important factors to consider:

  1. Your habits, what is it that you like to do, eat and how do you usually do it.
  2. Your budget, how much can you spend and where should the money go. 
  3. Your style, what do you want your home to look like. 
  4. Your space, what can you get and where will it go. 
  5. Your number, how many people will this appliance serve. 

These five factors will help you in determining which of the appliances on the list make sense to you, what size should you get them in, and the brand, plus model features you want them to have. 

A good refrigerator 

Refrigerators are one of the most used and needed appliances in any home, just think of surviving the summer months without a cold drink or keeping food safe and fresh. So, picking one of these is all about needs vs wants. You can go high-end, smart features, glass door or you can get a mini-fridge to satisfy your needs and safe space, it’s all up to you. 

Best brands for refrigerators:

  • Samsung 
  • Whirlpool 
  • Bosch 

Washing machine and dryer 

Having clean laundry is one of the best feelings once you are a full adult, so a washer dryer should definitely be on your priority list. When it comes to these appliances the most important factor is space. How much you have available will determine if you get a side-by-side set or some other model. You can even get a one in all appliance. 

Another really important aspect when it comes to washing machines and dryers is installation. You will need to set up water supply, electricity and make sure they are stable and well places, so be sure you know what you are doing if you decide to DIY, or just call Maydone.

  • This is the second time I’ve used their services, and both time was helped by Alex. He was incredibly thorough, punctual and incredibly diligent. He went above and beyond and even fixed a wobbly door under my sink. It’s always a pleasure to find a reliable and efficient service, and I would absolutely use Alex in the future!

  • Working in a veterinary clinic - we understandably go through a lot of laundry. Our washer was out of commission and within a very short period of time, Igor not only diagnosed the problem but had it fixed. He was efficient and easy to work with.

  • When it comes to repairs you want professional, experienced contractors and on top of the problem you have. Maydone has it all. We worked with Alex (we highly recommend you ask for him) who was on time, polite, does the job, very neat and professional.

  • Contacted them late in the day and got a response first thing in the morning. Techinicians came the following day, showed up on time and repaired it quickly. Wouldn't hesitate to contact them again in the future.
