Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
Harway Appliances, the leading dealer of high-end kitchen appliances in Austin, is revamping their showroom floor for spring. Local architects and designers doing business with Harway see a strong trend of high-end kitchens moving outdoors.
“We’re seeing demand for high-end appliances that complement outdoor lifestyles,” said Jeff Jenkins, vice president. “Our clients with custom kitchens are now building outdoor spaces with full kitchen amenities – outdoor refrigeration and ice makers in addition to a traditional grill and smoker.”
Harway’s management team notes builders and contractors are more focused on quality brands in 2013. Builders are catering to buyers demanding higher quality kitchen appliances. Contractors are also seeing increased kitchen remodeling and outdoor kitchen projects.
“Custom home builders are putting in the highest quality products from the start,” said Michael Walker, president. “We’re seeing top brands like Sub-Zero, Wolf and Thermador in high-end custom homes and remodels. Even condo projects are putting high-end finishes in common areas. You might see a Miele custom coffee system and Bosch steam oven in a common room, with Lynx grills and a Scotsman ice-maker by the pool. This year we also see individual homeowners asking for the Big Green Egg BBQ cooker to complement an existing gas grill.”
Harway Appliances is expanding their showroom floor to keep pace. “We maintain the best showroom for high-end kitchens in the Austin area,” says Gabe Sutton, vice president. “Clients don’t need an appointment to visit our appliance showroom and model kitchens. We offer premium indoor and outdoor kitchen appliance brands at competitive prices.”
