3 appliances you need whenever you move into a new home


Getting housewares and other items of this sort nowadays is quite complicated given that there’s so many to choose from. If you’ve recently moved into a new home, I believe I can give you several tips that can assist you in finding the right appliances you actually need. I used to live in rent and move from one place to the next rather regularly, so I’m kind of an expert in this field.

Some things I bought and took with me everywhere. And I’ll talk about them in the following paragraphs. So, if you’re having trouble determining which things are crucial and which ones you can buy later, I’m here to give you a hand. Check out the list I made of three basic appliances you actually need the services of.



Convection oven

If there isn’t a kitchen in the place you’re moving into, or you don’t have the freedom to use too many appliances, the best bet would be to get a convection oven. My advice is to buy a large one that comes with one rack so that you can prepare two pizzas at the same time. Basically, you can use a convection oven for a variety of things. You can make toast, heat up croissants and sandwiches, make pizza, and bake any treat.

My point here is that it’s a better idea to invest in a high-quality appliance that pretty much does the trick under most circumstances. Actually, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the creative things you can do with such an oven. Plus, it relies on electricity, so you won’t even need to bother with gas, although it is much cheaper than electricity.


Washer and dryer

Obviously, if you have enough space in your home or you live in an area where it’s always summer, you probably don’t need a dryer as you’ll hang your clothes outside, under the sun. However, for those who live in small apartments or share homes with others and as such, don’t benefit from enough room for that, getting the best washer and dryer is a good idea.

Even if you were to start prospecting the market for a combo, you would probably reach the conclusion that it’s hard to get the right model. On the one hand, this type of machine is way more expensive than a simple washer. Some models have two components mounted on top of the other. Others have settings for washing and drying although they look just like a washing machine. The latter are space savers.


Refrigerator with freezer capacity

Again, this is a space saver as you won’t have to get a fridge and a freezer. If you don’t have a big family, this is the perfect choice for you. If you do have three kids, it might be a problem. For a small family or just one that’s starting out, however, it’s a great alternative. Also, there’s nothing stopping you from selling it later on.

I love my new robotic vacuum



There’s nothing in this life I hate more than cleaning the house. Sometimes, the kids can get so messy that I can’t even take it anymore and I occasionally take them to their grandparents’ place so that I have some time to tidy up. It’s a busy schedule with everyone at work, taking them to school every morning, and just dealing with this whole mess called life.

Something that I have managed to do over time is get rid of most of my carpets. We live in San Diego, so there’s no reason to keep them around as my feet won’t get cold too soon. I own an upright vacuum cleaner for quite some time now and have been using it rather efficiently for the past three years. It’s convenient because it’s equipped with a battery that enables it to work for as many as thirty minutes per cleaning session.

Recently, however, I’ve been looking into getting a robotic vacuum because I just can’t seem to get the time to clean up the house. Now that the kids are somewhat older, I can tell them to do this and that, but there’s a certain limit to everything, and I won’t treat my children like slaves. In my opinion, this time is the best one for them to have fun, so I won’t spoil it.

Other than washing the dishes and taking out the trash, I can’t tell them to do too many things around the house. I am a great lover of hardwood floors and tile because they are particularly easy to clean. While there’s tile in my kitchen and bathrooms, I don’t have it in our living room, for example.

The thing that I found most bothersome about such a vacuum is that it costs a lot of money compared to traditional units. Some Bissell models, for example, can cost about seventy bucks but most of the robotic alternatives I came across are usually priced around over one hundred.

I started by prospecting the market by looking at the most expensive models out there. Some of those that come to mind are the Samsung VR9300K, the Dyson 360 Eye, the Neato Botvac, and the Hoover Robo.com. Pretty much all of these were off-putting for me and my budget. On the other hand, the Vileda was too cheap to consider, so I was rather wary about getting it. Nonetheless, after having looked through some of the reviews it had gathered, I quickly came to the conclusion that this unit was the perfect one for me.

Many of those who have bought it say that it struggles when it comes to cleaning large rugs, but the fact is I have zero such carpets in my house. I’m rather impressed with the way it performs on hardwood and tile, so I really have no complaints at all.
