While electronic appliances are practical additions that can elevate our home living, they’re also significant investments that should not be taken lightly.

Wanna make the most out of your money and be satisfied with your purchases for YEARS to come? Make sure to avoid the common mistakes below! 


1. Choosing the lowest-priced products

Having a wide range of brands and models to choose from, many of us would opt for the lowest-priced products to minimise our expenditures. However, these products are not always of the best quality!

Remember, these products are cheap for a reason! They’re likely to require frequent maintenance and repairs, which can quickly drain our wallets. Worst yet, when they’re beyond repair, we end up spending even more to get new appliances

2. Overlooking energy efficiency 

As we prioritise the quality and functionality of new devices, many tend to overlook their energy efficiency. Verily, using appliances with reduced power consumption saves the environment AND our wallets!

While shopping for new appliances, be sure to look for the star rating on the Energy Efficiency Label. Five-star products save the most energy, while two-star products are the culprits of our surging electricity bills! Although five-star products are usually pricier, we’re still saving more in the long run when we consider the amount of electricity we save.

3. Ignoring hidden costs

Budgeting for new appliances? The prices of the products aren’t the only aspect to be considered! Identifying the hidden costs of your home appliances can save you a bundle. 

Before you swipe your credit card, ask the salesperson about warranty, repair costs, and maintenance fees. Remember to take shipping and assembling charges into account too!

4. Skipping measurements

We all know that our appliances should fit into their designated space at home. But have you measured the entrances, doorways, and hallways that they’ll go through before arriving at their designated places? 

You don’t want large appliances like refrigerators and washing machines to scratch the walls along the hallway. If your appliances have doors, don’t forget to measure the space they take up when their doors are fully opened!

5. Valuing trend over functionality 

It’s undeniable that the right appliances can complement the interior designs of our homes. However, being too trendy can distract us from accessing the functionality of the devices, which compromises our quality of life. 

A pastel white oven can pair well with beige cabinets, but it’s still a no-go if it’s too tiny to feed your large family. Stick to neutral colour palettes for interior design so that black and silver appliances can easily match your home!
