Need Help Deciding On Kitchen Appliances

jabrodnax | Feb 6, 201505:01 AM     9

Hello Everyone,

I have spent some time cruising this forum and others for information but I have not been able to find a recent comparison of our options. We are near the end of selecting our finishes for our new construction townhouse. Our builder exclusively provides GE appliances. We have room for the following:

30" Fridge (Possibly 36" if we give up some cabinet space)
30" Gas Range
Over the range microwave or recirculating hood (no option to vent outside)
-Microwave would have have to be built in if hood is used
Dishwasher (Full size)
Beverage Center (under cabinets)
Wine Center (under cabinets)

We both really like the clean industrial look for top end appliance so we have asked for a quote from our builder for GE Monogram on all of our appliance. I know GE Monogram is not best in class for all of these selections so I wanted to see what everyone here had to say. We both prefer a very uniformed look (same branding range/hood etc...) I wanted to see if anyone else had suggestions on possible combinations. We are not just trying to spend money for the sake of spending so we are entertaining brands outside of SZ and Wolf. I have looked at the Miele, Viking, and Bosch options but just do not have any experience with them.

I have attached two photos of the model kitchen below. This kitchen has the same space and layout we will have.

Please feel free to ask any question and thank you in advance, your help is greatly appreciated.
