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!

The 10 Best Appliance Gifts for Father’s Day Under $100

Men will always have a special place in their heart for machines. It might be the innate attraction for anything metallic and mechanical, or the fascination with things that “do stuff”. Most of the time they just love the feeling of having the most bells and whistles on the contraption that they own. Whatever the reason is, you can be assured that any guy worth his salt won’t object to the idea of getting an appliance as a gift.

Now toys for big boys are often expensive, and it will be difficult to think of a good Father’s Day gift if you’re in a budget. To help you out, we scoured Amazon for the 10 small appliances that offer the best value for money.

For this year, we’d like to stay clear of some cliched items like power tools or grooming gadgets. You may notice that most on the list are kitchen appliances (we might have been hungry when we put this together). This is no mistake, because men also have a thing for cooking and eating. As they say, “The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, so what better way to do that than to get him something he can use to make himself some man food!

Dads love a properly chilled drink too, so we also included a couple of coolers and an ice crusher that will do the job right. You’ll find a little something that he can use for his car as well, for when the kids mess it up. In any case, we’re sure that whichever gift you pick from our list will be a certified hit with him.

Anyway, let’s get to it. Here are some Father’s Day gifts that would make any dad’s life a li’l bit more awesome!
