It’s busy – and hard – growing up these days. Between the political climate and the competitive and slim job market, buying more “grownup” and “settled” life purchases may not always be at the front of your mind when other things like rent and student loans seem all encompassing.
If you are used to washing dishes by hand, have never worried about the difference between top loading and front loading, and have no idea what in the world a tine is, you aren’t alone –for some shoppers, appliances just aren’t second nature. And we get that!
Millennials may have been born with computers in their hands, but we grew up with appliances in our hearts. That’s why we are here not just to sell, but also to educate – to guide you through the turmoil that is trying to figure out what your home needs and why it needs it once you finally leave the nest and are financially secure enough to actually have to worry about said decisions.
If you are a first-time home owner – or just fitting out your new apartment space – but aren’t sure what you need and why you need it and which, we’re here to help. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need to truly turn your house into a home.
Sure, you may not need to keep ramen in the refrigerator, but it’s probably well past time you started thinking about meals that can be cooked and then stored for later. Of everything on this list, a refrigerator is probably the appliance your home needs most, and you might be surprised just how functional a new fridge can be these days.
Besides keeping your food from spoiling – which is really important in adult life, trust us! – a new Samsung smart refrigerator comes with a 21.5” touchscreen, which can show you the contents of your fridge and be used to manage calendars and notes. You can even use voice recognition to add your favourite foods to your shopping list – no pausing Netflix required.
2. Washer and Dryer
Forget laundry mats and having to go through of hassle of actually finding physical change, real luxury is walking down the hall and doing laundry whenever you want to, for free. Of course, that requires knowing how to do laundry, and which setting to put things on, and how to not make colours bleed or sweaters shrink … you get the idea.
You may be noticing a running theme here, but these aren’t your grandparents’ washers and dryers, either. Check out a Samsung washer with Wi-Fi connectivity, and you’ll easily be able to use your phone to stay in touch and on top of your laundry.
Of course, we are sure you have other concerns, especially around the energy usage. We’re pro-environment, too! And the good news is so is Samsung, and their washers are Energy Star certified, which means you know you aren’t wasting energy while getting the necessities taken care of.
3. Cooktops and Hoods
Don’t worry if you are already lost – it’s totally OK to not know what a cooktop and a hood is.
But, you are out on your own now, so you are probably going to be doing a lot more cooking at home. That’s what the cooktop is for, and the hood will help the air quality in your cooking space stay clean and fresh.
Samsung’s smart technology extends to these necessary home appliances, as well. With Bluetooth you can connect your range and cooktop, making them work together for lighting and fan purposes. You can also keep an eye on them anywhere you have Wi-Fi! Yup, cooktops and hoods are smart enabled now, too.
4. Range/Wall Oven
While you may be used to take out and microwave dinners, there’s a whole new world of baking and cooking waiting for you with a range or a wall oven. Stop just watching reruns of “The Great British Bake Off” and “Iron Chef” and actually take the utensils into your own hands! You’ll be surprised what culinary creations you are able to whip up with Samsung’s sleek appliances by your side.
