Many people are using the extra time at home during the COVID-19 pandemic to renovate or add simple upgrades to their living space. With so many available options, it is easy to find an upgrade that will make a meaningful difference in your life. Here are five of the best luxury home appliances that you should consider adding this year if you truly want to treat yourself.
If you have been holding out on adding a premium espresso maker appliance to your kitchen, now is the time to do it. It is easy to create your favorite coffee drinks with these countertop appliances. Once you get the hang of it, you will enjoy frothy lattes, bold espresso drinks, and more without having to leave the house.
Investing in a home espresso machine is a particularly good idea if you have been working at home more lately as a result of the pandemic. It may not be as convenient these days to swing by the Starbucks drive-thru to grab your favorite coffee treat on the way to work. With a home machine, you can create your own specialty coffee drinks at a fraction of the cost. While it may seem like a lot of money to put down initially, this investment will pay for itself quickly.
Shower Head Upgrades
It is easy to turn your bathroom into a spa-like experience with just a few upgrades to the appliances in this room. Start with adding a premium showerhead to your shower. To elevate this shower experience even further, add multiple heads for a luxurious treat. Large modern rain shower heads will deliver a relaxing experience every time that you step into your shower.
While you are busy upgrading your bathroom, be sure to consider adding heated flooring to this space. You will not regret taking this step when you walk into your bathroom on those cold winter days and feel the warmth at your feet. The heated floors are the perfect finish to your luxurious shower.
Outdoor Pizza Oven
Outdoor kitchens are all the rage in home improvement. Do not just settle for a fancy grill or smoker. You can enhance your outdoor kitchen with the addition of a pizza oven. Choose a classic gas or charcoal version or go all out with a wood-fired pizza oven. You are not limited to just making pizza with this appliance. They are also able to cook turkeys, loaves of bread, roasts, and much more.
Not only is this type of oven functional, but it also will provide a stunning visual centerpiece to your outdoor living area. You will love entertaining friends and family with this fun home addition.
If you appreciate the finer things in life, you will get a lot of use out of a wine refrigerator. A wine fridge will deliver the ideal temperature settings and humidity levels to properly store wine. This makes it a useful appliance for the family who is interested in aging their wine.
You can choose to purchase a standalone wine fridge or you can carve out a spot in your existing cabinets and add the fridge there. Wine fridges are available in a variety of sizes, making it easy to find a version to hold your growing collection while also fitting into your existing space constraints. This appliance is also surprisingly affordable. If you are going to spend all of this money on your wine collection, you need to make the effort to store it properly.
In addition to adding a wine fridge, you may want to consider updating your suite of kitchen appliances with a smart refrigerator. A connected fridge can make your time in the kitchen infinitely easier.
Imagine being at the grocery store during your weekly shopping trip and wondering if you are almost out of eggs. Instead of having to guess, you can simply pull up your smart fridge app on your smartphone and take a peek inside your refrigerator to see for yourself. Other features allow you to pull up recipes, stream music, leave notes and reminders for the family, and more.
You owe it yourself to consider these five luxury home appliances. During this challenging pandemic, you might as well make the most out of your time at home.
