Getting Appliances to Fit: Part 2

Planning pays off with trouble-free installations

Getting kitchen appliances to fit properly ensures a space that functions well, looks good, and operates safely. Cabinetmaker and designer David Getts has installed dozens of appliances, and in this article he shares specific information on installing island ventilation hoods; dishwasher drawers; built-in refrigerators; undercounter refrigerators, wine coolers, and icemakers; and warming drawers. For each, he provides a list of mistakes to avoid. He also includes a list of tips for the seamless installation of any appliance. Even with all of this information, Getts recommends developing a good relationship with a local appliance distributor, who will be able to provide installation-specific information in the ever-evolving market of kitchen design.
