The Siegels saved money on appliances at Best Buy
. They chose Frigidaire
models that matched the refrigerator they already owned yet had the features and Energy Star
ratings they wanted. Though the open floor plan and tight space dictated a slightly odd appliance layout (with the sink, stove, and dishwasher lined up along one wall and the refrigerator tucked against a second, freestanding one), all lie just a few feet apart, easily within reach for busy mealtimes.
Spacious counters allow the Siegels to cook together, and tools and supplies are conveniently close to where they're needed: Pots and pans nestle in stove-side drawers, and baking sheets slide into skinny cabinets in the island.
