When it comes to home design, we often think of appliances last. Compared with choosing a comfy leather couch or beautiful wallpaper, shopping for dishwashers and toasters is pretty humdrum. But just because appliances serve a utilitarian purpose doesn’t mean they have to be ugly. In fact, there are plenty that are both high performing and, dare we say, even elegant. Here are some of the most luxurious appliances on the market today that prove you can have the very best of both form and function.
A Whiz of a Washing Machine
We can all agree that washing laundry is one of the most boring household chores, right? From the tedious selection of what can be washed on which cycle, to the boring waiting period, to the monotonous folding and hanging once it’s all done, we’d give anything to have Rosie the Robot glide into our homes and take over that chore for us.
Although technology isn’t quite advanced enough for her yet, there is a second-best option. The Electrolux Perfect Steam front load washer has arrived to make doing laundry less of a chore. With smart load sensing, automatic water level adjustment and temperature control, and incredible speed, your clothes will be clean in only 18 minutes on the fast wash setting! You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
A Dishwasher with Wi-Fi Technology
If you’re like us, you can’t count the number of times you’ve gone to nab a fresh bowl for your nightly ice cream only to find that the dishes are all dirty. But now you can have a dishwasher that does the work for you. Simply download an app on your phone, and you’ll be alerted anytime a load is finished, or of common issues — such as food particles redepositing on dishes — that will result in an imperfect wash. A smart dishwasher will also monitor performance and alert you in the case of any leakage, so you’ll never have to mop up a wet floor again.
Ditch the Shopping List
Ever find yourself in the middle of cooking a meal when you realize you’re missing one key ingredient? Or maybe you’re standing in the shower and realize too late that you’re fresh out of soap?
No more kicking yourself that you forgot to add an item to the grocery list, because the GeniCan has got you covered. The GeniCan attaches to your waste basket or recycling bin and monitors what you throw away, creating a shopping list from these items. Simply scan the barcode of each item before you toss it, and all of your products are automatically saved to your shopping list in the GeniCan app. It also syncs with Amazon Dash, so you can have items on your list conveniently delivered to your home with one simple swipe.
Get Yourself a Lacanche Stove
Whether it’s their extravagant cuisine, world-renowned art, or awe-inspiring architecture, no one embodies the concept of luxury more than the French. That’s why it’s no surprise that French manufacturer Lacanche is the leader in high-end stoves that make us all feel like master chefs.
Handcrafted in the Burgundy region since the late 18th century, this line of high-performing stoves and fully customizable with features like a French plaque, Spanish-style plancha gas burners, warming cupboards for either side of the oven, and a built-in multicooker, which serves as either a steamer or chafing dish. Lacanche stoves are hands-down beautiful, too, reminiscent of vintage stoves from old European kitchens. They make an elegant design statement in any home.
