The Best Kitchen & Laundry Appliances for a Tiny Apartment

Planning to move into a small apartment? If you are, or are already living in one and could use a bit more room, one way to go about it would be to use compact versions of regular household essentials. If you’ve already furnished your living room with space-saving furniture, the next thing to look at for more real estate would be the kitchen and laundry area, which is often combined in tiny apartments.

Slim, tiny apartment kitchen and laundry appliances have been available in the market for quite some time, but shoppers generally think that there is always a trade-off when opting for the smaller versions. While this is somewhat true and cannot be avoided, there are brands and models that can give you a good compromise between size, performance and price that will perfectly fit your needs.

Now if you really want to make sure that you’re getting the right model, you’ll have to do your homework. You’ll need to do some window shopping or research online, compare specs, features, and prices, all very time consuming! Recognizing this, we at TJ’s Appliance Repair, in collaboration with our good friends at H & H Appliance Center, went ahead and did all the work for you!

We combined our expertise on appliances and came up with an infographic which includes a list of compact dishwashers, refrigerators, washer-dryer combos, even ranges and cooktops, that provide the same level of functionality and amenities as their full-sized counterparts. Whether you’re looking for stylish high-end units, the bare essentials, or anything in between, our “The Best Kitchen & Laundry Appliances for a Tiny Apartment” has it. Feel free to share!

How To Choose The Right Washer and Dryer

It’s nice to have choices, but having too many can be a problem. Do you agree?

In our busy lifestyle, having a washer and dryer is a must, but getting one is always a big financial consideration.

Even the cheapest ones cost a couple of hundred dollars, by no means an easy purchase. This is why you should make sure that the one you buy will meet your needs perfectly.

With so many washer and dryer models out in the market today, how would you know which is the right one for you? If you are budget constrained, do you immediately go for the cheapest one? Or should you wait and save up for a high end model that comes with all the bells and whistles?

To help out those who are shopping for a new washer and dryer, we’ve made an infographic that compares the features of popular types of washers and dryers currently available in the market such as the top load washer and front load washer, the gas dryer, electric dryer and heat pump dryer, and the various configurations (stacked, washer-dryer combo, laundry center). In it we also provided several key criteria which you can base your decision on so that you can clearly see which washer or dryer type fits your purchase requirements.

Is Your Appliance An Unexpected Residential Fire Starter? [Infographic]

Most, if not all appliances nowadays are built with safety features that have passed strict and rigorous testing and quality control. But in rare occasions, there are some that still do fail, and when they do, the results can be disastrous.

In this infographic, we list a couple of uncommon appliance problems that can start a house fire. Most of these issues won’t be obvious, in fact, you may not even notice any signs or symptoms of a failure, so if you suspect that your appliance is at risk, have it checked immediately by our technician. It is also a good idea to check to see if any of your appliances are included in their recall list.
