Tips for Buying a Clothes Dryer

When it comes to use in your home, the dryer is second only to the refrigerator. So when considering buying a new dryer, it make sense to weigh your options. Use the following guide to help you determine the best dryer for your family’s needs.

Gas or electric. This one is easy as it depends on what type of power source is available in your home. Gas dryers need a gas line in the laundry room. Electric dryers need a 240-volt electrical outlet.

Capacity. Dryers range from roughly 3.4 cubic feet for compact models to over 7 cubic feet for extra large capacity. The rule of thumb is that you want a dryer with twice the cubic foot capacity as your washing machine. (Clothes stick together in a washer, but need space to toss in a dryer.) Families with kids and frequent clothes washers will do best with a larger dryer model. Single people may be fine with a compact dryer. Remember, the more clothes you can dry in a single load, the more energy and money you save on your dryer energy bill.

Efficiency. There are energy-efficient dryers available in both gas dryer and electric dryer models. Electric dryers tend to cost slightly more to run, though the initial purchase price is often lower than gas dryers. The best way to save is to choose a dryer with energy-saving features. For instance, a dryer moisture sensor monitors the moisture in your clothes and stops the dryer when the clothes are dry. Compared to timed dryer, moisture sensors can save you 10 percent on dryer energy costs. Another green option is temperature sensing, which shuts off the dryer when it reaches a set temperature.

Features. If you have a variety of fabrics that you wash, consider opting for a dryer that has numerous cycles, such as delicate, permanent press and speed-dry. This will allow you to handle special fabrics like satin and linen with greater care and precision. Some dryers even come with a drying rack that allows you to lay clothes like sweaters flat and dry them without tumbling. Keep in mind that more cycles typically drive the price of the dryer up.

Cool-down. If you’re the type to leave laundry sitting in the dryer, look for a dryer that finishes with a cool-down cycle. By circulating cool air through the dryer, you’ll save on resources and reduce wrinkling in your clothes.

The evolution of the modern kitchen has finally hit a design crescendo. The following design directions reflect a greater desire for control, ease, and environmental sensitivity within the home that appears to be increasingly common among a diverse range of homeowners. Whether any or all of the possibilities below fully develop into future design concepts for kitchens or vary a bit — as many trends do — depend on regional influences and budgetary considerations.

Lifestyle at home: Homes have become kitchen-centric, with kitchens serving as a family's venue for leisure, work, and entertaining in addition to its utilitarian roles. Homeowners are willing to devote a greater share of thought, square footage, and budget to design kitchens that will ease this lifestyle integration. Moving forward, designers will seek to create more unified, holistic concepts for lifestyle-inclusive kitchen environments.

Personality-driven design: Many homeowners, not satisfied with cookie-cutter kitchens, are choosing to put a personal stamp on their designs to create unique spaces that showcase their aesthetic preferences and personalities. Consumers are savvier than ever about the options available to them, and they will continue to demand ever-more-personalized designs.

Personality-driven design: Reflecting the kitchen's shift from pure utility to venue for comfort and expression, elements like lighting fixtures, countertops, and hardware are getting the custom treatment with personalized touches, such as countertops embedded with favorite objects or motifs, or whimsical cabinet knobs.

Health and wellness: Going beyond simple conservation of resources, green design in the kitchen now puts a greater emphasis on healthy living. It is primarily driven by the farm-to-table movement and homeowners' desire to live within an environment that supports their families' health.

Health and wellness: Indoor air quality is becoming more important to homeowners, so low- or no-VOC finishes, paints, sealants, and cabinetry materials are increasingly being incorporated into kitchens, as well as ventilation and filtration systems. Also, appliance industry groups currently are developing lifecycle-based sustainability standards for home appliances such as microwaves and refrigerators, which will add a new dimension to appliance performance.

Honest use of materials: Stone's natural veining is highly valued, and finish preferences have shifted toward honed rather than polished, to let the stone's raw texture shine. A wider range of metals is being used, from stainless steel to polished nickel to bronzes and brasses with living finishes.

Honest use of materials: Natural materials are able to retain their own voices in today's kitchens, rather than being muted by unnatural treatments. Wood cabinetry may be painted, but the preference is now for a hand-applied finish that allows brush marks and the material's original grain to show through, for example.

Honest use of materials: Repurposing pieces in the kitchen area is popular, too. A bench that used to sit in an entry area can easily tuck into to a kitchen niche, giving a personal twist over a newly purchased piece.

Technological innovation: As the separation between kitchens and living rooms continues to disappear, homeowners are showing a greater preference for integrating and concealing utilitarian elements such as appliances using the aforementioned natural materials. This will be supported by technological advances.

Technological innovation: Technology also will enable seamless aging-in-place design and the incorporation of electronic displays and control panels, as well as lighting, into kitchen surfaces — countertops in particular. Further product innovations and electronic advances will make wireless/plugless countertop appliance operation a reality.
