The COVID-19 pandemic brought about a significant impact on the home building and design industry. More than ever before, homeowners began to look at their home designs under a critical light and embark on remodeling projects with the goal of adjusting their living spaces to accommodate their new stay-at-home lifestyle. This surge in home renovation, paired with numerous supply chain disruptions, has led to shortages and delays that have forced homeowners to consider extending their timelines and look into other options.
While these delays have been impacting the industry for nearly a year, they still continue to linger. With longer wait times and unavoidable delays, it’s important to remain flexible and patient with your kitchen design project. However, after a year of delays, we’ve gathered some insightful tips to help you create that luxury kitchen you’ve been dreaming of during these uncertain times. If you’re planning a kitchen remodel or hope to upgrade your appliances, consider the following tips to keep your project on track.
Look to alternative brands
You may have your sights set on appliances from one of the most well-known luxury brands; however, many of these more popular brands are experiencing the most significant delays. If you’re adamant about sticking to your timeline, it is worth considering some of the lesser-known brands that are more readily available. We aim to offer the best that the high-end appliance market has to offer, and that goes for both our well-known and lesser-known brands. It is important to note that appliances from many of these smaller brands offer the same stunning designs and innovative functionality as products from more popular brands do. Appliances from lesser-known brands may even spark conversation or add a unique touch to your design. Many of these brands may not be household names in the United States but may be popular in other countries. Give us a call or visit our showroom to learn more about the alternative brands we carry.
Start shopping for appliances early
If you have your heart set on appliances from a popular brand, it would be wise to begin shopping early. As delays are unavoidable, ordering the appliances you desire at the beginning of your timeline can help ensure that you are getting your products as close to your deadline as possible. While backorder issues continue to affect homeowners, our team of high-end appliance experts is ready to work with you to make sure you get the best turnaround possible.
