Building or remodeling a new home is already a daunting task on its own – but budgeting for the project seems to be where a majority of the stress comes from!
Appliances are a product that people are definitely not shopping for every single year – we even have customers come in who haven’t bought a single piece in over 20 years!

We would like to help you out and give you a little guide on how to budget for your new appliances. We are going to be using a few sample GE Appliances kitchens in order to show you what $2500, $5000 & $10,000 will get you in an appliance package.

Here is an example of an appliance package for approximately $2500:

  • Fridge – the fridge that we have used in this sample package is a side by side refrigerator with an ice and water dispenser on the outside. If you wanted to bring the price down even further, a top freezer refrigerator would also be a good option in this package.
  • Range – this is a four burner, self-cleaning electric range with a storage drawer. A gas range would also be available for approximately $100 more.
  • Microwave – standard over the range microwave, 1000 watts.
  • Dishwasher – plastic tub interior, front controls, 54 DBA (noise level).

Now, here is an example of a $5,000 package:

  • Fridge – french door, bottom freezer fridge with ice & water in the door. Capacity is 28 cubic feet.
  • Range – slide in electric range with convection. Five burners on cooktop.
  • Microwave – over the range sensor microwave. 1000 watts.
  • Dishwasher – stainless steel tub, bottle wash jets, ball-bearing glide upper rack, hidden controls, 46 DBA.

Lastly, here is an example of what an approximately $10,000 package looks like:

  • Fridge – french door, bottom freezer with ice, water & hot water dispenser.
  • Range – slide in double oven electric range with convection, self-cleaning, 5 burner.
  • Microwave – built in convection microwave with trim kit.
  • Hood – chimney range hood.
  • Dishwasher – stainless steel tub, 3rd rack, bottle wash jets, hidden controls, 45 DBA.
