When to Buy These 4 Stove Brands for Your St. Louis Luxurious Kitchen

Written by Brittany Allen

A high-ticket item like a stove is challenging to purchase again. Not only is it a significant investment, but it’s also a big adjustment for your routines. A stove, oven, or cooktop is personal and unique. You’ve learned how to cook on yours and know which setting to use for each recipe. Introducing a new one to your home can disrupt your meals. The learning curve is often enough to push back buying a new one. However, there are some signs that you can’t ignore. 

When to Buy a Stove

How do you know you’re ready for a new stove? Here are some of the most popular reasons homeowners say they knew it was time to start their journey. 

Malfunctioning Burners & Controls

This might seem obvious, but you might be living with a burner that doesn’t quite work right. After a while, this becomes normal until you take a moment and realize it’s not. A burner or control panel that is no longer working is the perfect and most obvious reason you should consider purchasing a new one. It can inhibit your ability to create delicious meals and can be dangerous. This leads us to our next point. 

Smells of Gas

Worn down and old stoves can be a hazard. You might be able to work around the burner or control buttons that don’t quite work right. However, this isn’t just about convenience. If you’re smelling gas or avoiding features of your stove because of their ability (or lack thereof) to function correctly, it’s probably time to get a new one. 

You’re Ready

If your stove works just fine, that doesn’t mean you can’t justify getting a new one. Products like stoves and ovens and cooktops are built to last, so it’s likely that yours from 1992 still works just fine. However, it doesn’t suit your aesthetic, and your culinary skills have surpassed its abilities. This means you’re just ready to have a new one, which is a perfectly acceptable reason to buy a new stove for your kitchen. 

How to Buy a New Stove

You’ve decided it’s finally time, but now you’re wondering how to find the perfect luxury stove for your kitchen. There are so many features to consider, colors to look through, and brands to narrow down that it can all get overwhelming very quickly. To ensure you choose the right stove for you, we recommend having a professional designer by your side. They might not know every stove on the market, but they know who to go to when it comes to appliances. They’ll walk you through the showrooms, discuss your cooking preferences, and consider your style. But if you don’t have a designer yet, or you like to be extra prepared like we do, here are the five things to think about while shopping for a new stove. 

Budget

It’s always best to consider your budget before stepping into a showroom. Having a precise number in your head or between you and your partner can clear the air and make narrowing down your options much simpler. 

Fuel Type

Not everyone has the option for every fuel type, but it’s important to figure that out before you start. Take the time to determine if you have the option for gas, induction, or electric. If you’re able to have any of them but are unsure which one is best, do a little research about each type or consult the professionals at the showroom. 

Space Available

Stoves, ovens, and cooktops come in a range of sizes, and you don’t want to end up at the showroom looking at the love of your life (in stove form) and wonder if it’s going to fit in your kitchen. So whether you’re trying to fit a new one in an old spot or designing a new kitchen, figure out how much space you have to play with and bring that number with you. 

Aesthetic

For a long time, appliances have only been available in stainless steel or other similar finishes. However, there are now more and more options with colors, finishes, and styles. Consider your overall design, consult your professional designer, and devise a game plan for your stove aesthetic choice. 

Our Favorite Luxury Stove Brands

There are many luxury stove options on the market, and even some brands like GE, Samsung, LG, and KitchenAid now have luxury lines. So here is a list of our favorite luxury brand stoves that we think you should consider. They are known for their high-end appliances that bring a sense of opulence and extravagance to the cooking experience. 

 

It doesn’t matter if you end up with a stove that had to be shipped here from France or if you have a classic GE luxury stove. As long as you end up with the stove best suited for you and your needs, that should be all that matters.
