October 18, 2021 – 5 min read

How long have you been daydreaming about that freestanding cooker, a new french-door fridge or a dishwasher that actually works? In recent years, we’ve spent more time than ever inside our homes and our kitchens have been getting a workout. So it’s time to get that reno started, upgrade your kitchen appliances and turn your dream kitchen into a reality. You deserve it!

What is a dream kitchen?

The dream kitchen looks different for everyone, but what they all have in common is how hard they work. The heart of the home should be designed to meet your needs, whatever they may be. Feeding a large family every night? The kitchen should have space to accommodate them all and appliances that are up to the task. For people who work late, a smart, multitasking kitchen may be better suited. Ask yourself how you cook, how often you cook and how your appliances could make your life easier – that’s the dream.

How To Make It Happen

Ready to make the dream a reality? It’s all about your appliances. The five key items are the refrigerator, oven, cooktop, dishwasher and microwave. Create a wish list of the features you’ve been dreaming about, stop making excuses and get shopping. Don’t panic, you don’t have to buy them all at once and there are plenty of ways to make sure you’re getting a great deal.

Firstly, keep an eye out for sales and special offers, especially when it comes to premium brands. The Good Guys is currently celebrating reno season with a RealCa$h offer, which means you can get money back when you purchase eligible products. There’s also a range of finance options available through The Good Guys, so you don’t have to wait a minute longer. It’s time to treat yourself.

Dream Refrigerators

The latest fridges don’t just keep food fresher for longer, they can order the groceries, play music and let you see inside without even opening the door. Whether you’re looking for all the bells and whistles or just a simple upgrade to help trim the energy bills, a new fridge has a big role to play.

The Futureproof

Large (or growing) households should look to the Hisense 609L French Door Refrigerator. With a generous capacity, wide shelves and flexible storage (like turning part of the freezer section into extra fridge space), it will serve the family well for years to come.

The Splurge

The Samsung 637L Family Hub Refrigerator is the fridge that does it all – the full HD home screen can share recipes, order your groceries and even book you an Uber. The smart fridge also connects to your phone, so you can check what’s in there from the supermarket aisle.

Dream Ovens

The oven is one of the most frequently used and hardest working appliances in the kitchen, and updating your old appliance can completely change the way you cook (for the better) and give you new inspiration.

The Upgrade

The chic and sophisticated design of the Technika 60cm Electric Oven Dark Stainless will update your kitchen, but the oven itself also has some pretty great features. Think steam cleaning, air frying and dough proving settings among 12 other functionalities.

Dream Cooktops

Consider yourself a home chef? Or are you just looking for a quick and easy way to reheat that leftover Pad Thai? The cooktop is an essential element in every dream kitchen and with such a wide variety of styles and sizes, it’s easy to find your perfect fit.

The Upgrade

The Electrolux 90cm Ceramic Cooktop is a sleek and simple upgrade, with four cook zones (one that has three different size options) and touch-and-slide control.

The Futureproof

With five burners, a minimalist (and easy-to-clean) design and a straightforward control panel, th Westinghouse 90cm Gas Cooktop – Black is timeless in both style and functionality.

The Splurge

The Bosch 80cm Induction Cooktop with Ventilation is an award-winner for a reason. Not only is ventilation built-in, this induction cooktop also has 17 power levels for precise temperature control and a power boost setting to get you cooking quicker.

Dream Dishwashers

No dream kitchen is complete without a dishwasher, and new models have become more water and energy-efficient than ever before. If you haven’t got one, now is the time to invest.

The Splurge

Dishwashers don’t come much more premium than the Miele Built Under Dishwasher XXL Clean Steel, which features an automatic dosing system, Wi-Fi connectivity and AutoStart functionality – oh, and 6 star water rating paired with 4.5 star energy efficiency.

Dream Microwaves

Quick, easy and convenient cooking are just some of the reasons we love the humble microwave. The latest models are also capable of much more than just reheating the leftovers, with grilling, roasting and baking functionalities.
