With spring in full swing, many people are taking the opportunity to make some changes in their homes. Whether you are taking on a full scale home renovation or just changing the color palette in your home, you may find yourself with one problem that seems to have no solution: your appliances simply do not match your new plan for your home.
Your dishwasher, microwave, fridge, etc., are designed to provide years of quality appliance service. Many appliances can last as long as 20 years before needing replacement. Unfortunately, style trends change at a much faster rate. That powder blue appliance you bought at the turn of the millennium may seem hideous now, despite the fact that it is still going strong.
Before going out and looking for a replacement for a perfectly good home appliance, consider these options for transforming the appearance of your home appliances:
- PAINT THEM: Believe it or not, there are specially designed paints made specifically for repairing your home appliances exterior by giving it a facelift. Appliance paints are a cost effective alternative for transforming your appliance to meet your current décor, without spending hundreds (if not thousands) on a replacement appliance that may need to go by the next time you redo your home.
- REPLACE THE PANELS: Many manufacturers offer panel kits that can change the appearance of your appliances while maintaining the all-important inner workings. Appliance panel kits can give you a completely new looking appliance, for a fraction of the cost of a replacement.
- WALLPAPER THEM: Okay, so it’s not exactly wallpaper, but appliance film is very similar to traditional wall paper. Appliance film is an adhesive cover that can change the look of your appliance through a simple process; the same way wallpaper can transform a room. Simply apply the film and you’ve got a new looking appliance for cheap.
- COVER THEM UP: The small appliances in your home might be less expensive to replace, but that doesn’t mean you should get rid of them because they are smaller. Consider appliance covers to help blend your small appliances, such as toasters, blenders, and mixers with the new color scheme of your home.
It can be tempting to look for replacement appliances when your old appliances no longer fit your style. Utilizing the above tips, courtesy of Pacific Appliance Repair Services, can help you achieve your style goals at a fraction of the cost and allow you to get the most out of your home appliances.
