Energy Efficient Appliances - It seems as though we are constantly looking at ways to reduce our use of Energy, it really is a big deal with us at Vermont Modular. Today let’s take a look at home laundry.  Since some families with young kids in the house can easily generate a zillion tons of laundry each week, it makes sense to use only those machines that do a good job and use less energy.  Right? Today’s Front Loading Machines use on average slightly less than one-half the amount of water...

Kitchen – Gas Heating Appliances - Since it is winter let’s take a minute and look at heating options for your home.  Actually today’s conversation is going to be limited to a discussion of what NOT to do.  Unfortunately there are people who continue to use Un-Vented gas fired heating appliances.  These types of heat sources vary greatly but all of them have one thing in common – none of them have any type of chimney or vent.  Obviously the result is that the fumes are exhausted directly in...

Kitchen – Appliances, Cooking - Here we are in the kitchen again today which is almost always referred to as The Heart of a Home.  And, within the kitchen it seems as though everything revolves around the kitchen sink or the kitchen stove/range.   Just the other day we introduced you to the cute baby getting a bath in the sink. As far as the actual cooking is concerned there are two newer ideas floating around.  The first is Convection Cooking.  Inside the oven are fans that circulate hot a...

Kitchen – Appliances - In today’s modern kitchen one of the major concerns is your selection of appliances.  Today let’s only talk about large appliances; the range, refrigerator, and dishwasher.  Today’s photograph isn’t exactly the most modern range but vintage ranges are in great demand and end up costing a lot.  When considering a range there are basically two sources of energy for you to consider; gas or electric.  However, it’s not quite that simple.  The most popular source of energy...

Kitchens – Sinks - The other day we took a look at counter tops and today let’s look at the preverbal kitchen sink.  For those of you that know your history the kitchen sink was often located in The Scullery Room, or that special place where dishes, pots, and pans were washed.  How’s that for useless knowledge. Today’s modern kitchen revolves around either the sink or the range.  The kitchen sink comes in all kinds of materials, number of bowls, shapes, designs, and it is impossible for us ...

Kitchens – Counter Tops - Yesterday we introduced the topic of Counter tops and relegated all of them into two categories, Laminate and Solid Surface.  Ok, I apologize, that is perhaps too much of a simplification and for those of you that noticed I am sorry.  However, let’s stick with the two basic types for this discussion. Laminate Counter tops.  Laminate counter tops are probably the most common and most popular, many of us know them as Formica.  Well, Formica is an actual brand whereas...

Kitchens – more of what is trending - We have talked about popular features and colors.  Today let’s look at counter tops.  In today’s photograph, a typical 1920’s kitchen, the counter tops were often made from Stainless Steel or Linoleum; neither of which are widely used today. In the modern kitchen of the 21st Century counter tops fall into basically two major categories:  Laminate materials.  Most of us know laminate counter tops as Formica or WilsonArt.  This man-made material comes in ...

Kitchens – more - what is trending - Yesterday we started a conversation about what the latest trends in kitchen design are apt to be.  Out goes the high tech gizmos that are mentally joined at the hip with your phone.  In comes pull-out bins for trash and recycle. But, a huge thing is color and layout.  Surprisingly there is a hands-down favorite color for cabinetry.  And the color is………….., white.  Surveys have been taken across America and most of Europe.  The amazing thing is that the o...

Kitchens - what is trending - The “depths of winter” is a great time to sit by the fire and dream, perhaps dream about your new home.  Central to every home is the kitchen.  So we thought it might be a good idea to take a look at what are the current trends in kitchens. For those of you considering Avocado appliances this might be helpful.  Some things are no longer popular.  By the way, do you remember Avocado appliances? The kitchen of the future is surprisingly not an extension of your p...
