How to Choose the Right Dishwasher

One thing to be aware of, when you choose the right dishwasher: its capacity.

What are your needs? Do you own fragile or oversized items you’ll want to place in your dishwasher? Do you often host large groups? These are all questions that you need to ask yourself to determine the capacity of the dishwasher you’ll buy. Whether for a family, a couple or a single person, its capacity will vary. You must also hold your lifestyle into account, as an appliance that detaches dried up food will be attractive, but may not present another function you’d appreciate.

When at the store, it’s also important to consider the appliance’s noise level. Nothing ruins an evening like the noise of a dishwasher that covers the conversations in your dining room! Your dishwasher’s noise level should ideally vary between 45 dB and 60 dB. If you enjoy quiet evenings, you should consider a dishwasher with a noise level below 50 db. The lower the decibel level, the quieter your dishwasher will be.

Finally, consider the possibility to match your kitchen cabinets’ color and finish to your dishwasher door, as some models offer this option. You have invested time and money to get your ideal kitchen, you’ll be glad you made sure your dishwasher meets your needs and your taste.
