Builder Specialties, Inc., a Construction Resources company, is the expert when it comes to appliances and other top-of-the-line solutions for homes in the Southeast. Here, they share some of their favorite new trends in kitchen appliances that will never go out of style:

GE’s Café Series Refrigerators

Inspired by restaurants, the GE Café Series of appliances is made for those who love to live in the kitchen. For those people, especially if they need a hot cup of coffee to get their day started, standing in line for coffee or having an extra appliance take up much-needed prep space can really put a damper on those creative culinary juices. By adding a Keurig® K-Cup® Brewing System to the water dispenser, GE’s Café Series refrigerators give you a single serving of coffee with the touch of a button without the need to refill the water every day. How’s that for convenient?

French-Door Ovens

Timeless Kitchen Trends for 2016-GE Monogram Professional French Door Electronic Convection Oven

You don’t have to be a professional chef to appreciate the quality and efficiency of a French-door wall oven. Whether you’re cooking an intimate dinner for two or hosting the entire family during the holidays, these ovens will definitely get the job done while saving you tons of space that traditional fold-down ovens just don’t allow for. From easy, one-handed door opening to the best in preheating systems, convections and more, Builder Specialties, Inc., a Construction Resources company, has a wide range of the French-door ovens you need to create restaurant-quality meals right in your own home. One of Builder Specialties, Inc.’s favorites right now is the GE Monogram® Professional French-Door Electronic Convection Oven, which allows you to use Bluetooth on your phone to remotely control your oven’s functions, which is especially useful for those days when you’re stuck in Atlanta traffic and want to preheat the oven for dinner ahead of time.  Read More→
