The benefits of living in a condo are numerous. These benefits are particularly appealing to those who love a small space. As more and more people embrace the big potential of small living spaces, it makes sense to want to learn how to optimize said spaces. This certainly includes the appliances you are going to choose.
Find right appliances for your home.
Appliances Ideal for Condos
Condos are particularly great for people who want conveniences that generally aren’t extended to homeowners. The list includes security, resident-exclusive communities, and easy access to the best of Toronto. There are also some challenges that should be kept in mind. In particular, finding just the right appliances for a modest-sized space is something that people sometimes find to be rather difficult.
By no means does it have to be hard. The key element to remember is that things are more convenient than ever. These spaces can be in the form of condos, lofts, RVs, tiny houses, and much more. The best appliance manufacturers are keenly aware of all of this. You can be sure they are creating appliances for every imaginable need and taste.
Top Appliances for Condos
Shopping for appliances for condos for the first time? Our appliance experts at Express Repair GTA have worked with all kinds of appliances in numerous living spaces.
We have a few great ideas that should serve to steer you in the right direction:
Induction cooker: It’s likely that you’re surrounded by some great Toronto restaurants. Then you have fast food. We understand temptation, but we also all know that we should spend as much time in the kitchen as possible. This is where an induction cooker will prove to be vital. It won’t take up too much space on your kitchen counter, and you can use it to cook just about anything.
Your fridge: This is where things can get tricky. There are a lot of different fridges out there now for different sizes and demands. Micro refrigerators, compact and apartment-style refrigerators are just a few of your options. Make sure you have something that makes sense for the amount of space you really have. It may also help to split the difference with a mini-fridge for the kitchen, and then one more for the bedroom or elsewhere. The second one can hold on to your beverages.
Microwave: Some people are moving away from microwaves. Honestly, we still think it is pretty darn important in the kitchen. A microwave can cook a lot of different things effectively. At the same time, microwaves also strongly encourage meal planning practices. You can make something for the week, portion it out, and then use your microwave to cook up a plate every night.
Laundry: This is another tricky area that sometimes gives people a little trouble. A combo washer/dryer makes sense for a lot of people. However, many models aren’t the best at what they promise to do. At the end of the day, you may just want to plan for having a small, separate washer and dryer combo. There are some good options to that end.
Blenders: These can prove to be another essential tool for those who want to live and eat healthy. There are so many different smoothies, adult beverages, and even meals that can be created with a blender. Best of all, you don’t have something that is going to take up a whole lot of space in your condo.
Slow cookers: This one doesn’t occur to everyone. Trust us, because a slow cooker can prove to be one of your very best friends in the kitchen. Again, we are talking about yet another inventive appliance that can do a lot of different things. We are also talking about another appliance that isn’t going to take up a lot of space in your home.
In a perfect world, condos would already come with the best of all the stuff we mentioned above. You can certainly find some luxury GTA condos that will give you the best appliances to be found anywhere. However, in all likelihood, you are going to need to provide your own appliances. This is a great opportunity in disguise. Yeah, it’s great when someone else picks up the tab. At the same time, there is value in buying durable, compact, and endlessly usableappliances that you can take with you to wherever you might live next.
Everything we mentioned above is easy to pack, ship, and move from one location to another. This also applies to portable dishwashers, powerful-yet-portable coffee makers, and even the ways you store things around the house. There are small appliance possibilities to suit just about anything you may want to do.
Alex was absolutely incredible! He showed up on time and even called before he came. I have 2 cats who love to try to escape and Alex was great with them. He made sure they didn't escape. I called to have both my fridge repaired and my store repaired. Before he fixed both he checked what was wrong and discussed the price. He didn't go ahead until he had my okay. The fridge repair was amazing! He even took everything out and put everything back in. My stove repair was great as well. He fixed it too better than it was before it broke. I'm so happy with my service and super happy with Alex!
Express repair was my first ever dealing with an appliance repair company and I would highly recommend them. They were able to come the same day I called and even fixed the issue on the spot. The technician, Alex was very polite and honest. A great overall experience!
I have never dealt with this company before but was pleasantly surprised as to how quickly and professional they are. My fridge was a disaster and the last thing I wanted to deal with. Alex, one of the technicians, was able to fix it right away and was very nice to deal with. I would definitely recommend this place.
Outstanding Service! I would highly recommend Express Appliance Repair. The technician is honest, reliable, and truly "affordable". I use him exclusively because he is ALWAYS dependable, does an excellent job and his prices are very reasonable. I loved the service provided by Express Appliance Repair.
I called them Sunday night and they didn’t pick-up the phone. But surprisly they called me back and booked the an appointment for me next day! I was able to pick the time I wanted. Ivan came to my house very punctual, was there for no more than 30min and my dryer is working again :D I like their service straight to business and what you need.
Excellent service (although my machine could not be repaired). The technician answered all of my questions and gave me information on buying a replacement unit (washing machine). I will definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends & family. This was my second time using them. The last time was for the dryer.
Gennady Nijgorodov, the technician, provided me with honest and prompt service. He really went out of his way to get my oven fixed in time for a quickly approaching holiday, which was a huge relief. I would use this service again.
I got excellent service from the tech that came to fix my dryer not only did he come out within a few hours he diagnosed the issue within no time my dryer was working like a charm. I highly recommend them!
Great service. The Technicians, Mayor and Orael were very polite, cordial and acted in a very professional manner. They explained everything they were doing and what options were available to me. Highly recommended!!
Ivan was great! He took the time before his visit to confirm the issues so he came prepared with parts. He offered solutions and didn’t try to convince me on the more expense option. Very knowledgeable and helpful.
Our dishwasher repair was arranged very quickly, technician was prompt and thorough. We had to wait for the required parts but when they were available he came back and finished the repair - all works fine now !! Good service - we'd certainly use this service again !
I had called 3 other companies before I called Express Appliance repair. The person I spoke to ?Michelle was very pleasant and polite. She was able to arrange a technician on same day. The technician -Ofer- was not only prompt but was very knowledgeable and had a good attitude. Our fridge is back to life! I would recommend this company.
After calling a bunch of repair companies, who claimed to be same day service but could not come to my office on a Friday afternoon...I called Express Repair. They gave me a window for repair - and because there was a technician in the area he called and asked if he could come early. I was thrilled. They were professional, prompt, and got the job done fast. On a Friday afternoon, the last thing you want is to hang around at work waiting for a repair person to show up, so Express Repair made my day. I highly recommend the company.
After the first contact the service was very efficient and knowledgeable. We appreciate having Roman doing the repair and look forward to use the service again. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.
The technician was able to come the same day we called and returned the next day with the part to do the repair. The part cost seemed a little on the high side but the labour rate was fair for the work and the repair was done correctly and the dryer works fine again. The technician was very professional and even took the time to explain what we needed to do ourselves (no unnecessary upselling!) to avoid having the problem recur. Would recommend.
Excellent service! Would use them again. Our refrigerator was leaking copious amounts of water from the back. They sent a repair man in two hours (vs. the Jenn-Air offer of 5 days' wait). He identified the problem immediately, got the part quickly while I waited about 1/2 hour, and made the repair. He was knowledgeable, polite, clean, efficient, excellent work ethic, and a lovely attitude. Would definitely recommend them for emergency appliance repair.
I'm a landlord of 21 years. The service starting with the phone call to the receptionists Daniella and Michelle was handled in a very professional, concise and courteous manner. The appointment was made for the following day of my call, the arrival time for service to my Bosch washing machine was maintained within the 2 hour window with a 1/2 hour lead call to confirm the exact time the day of arrival.Rowan, the technician, without asking, removed his shoes at the door. He was polite, caring, knowledgeable and very honest.In my 21 years of being a landlord, I must say this was ONE of the BEST companies that I have ever hired!
We've called to express appliance repair 2 days ago and got service at the same day. Technical guy had all parts for our fridge and it was repaired right away. Fridge is working. Price is very reasonable. Will recommend those guys.
One of the guides of our top rack of our dishwasher broke off. We called Express Appliance Repair and sent them a picture of the broken part. Express Appliance Repair found the part in their inventory and called us to make an appointment the next day for the repair giving us a 2 hour window. The repairman called about an hour early, which was fine by us. He came over, fixed the rack and left. The repair took less than 1/2 an hour.Express Appliance Repair is complemented on its business approach, punctuality and reliability.
I was thoroughly satisfied with the service I received. The technician arrived at the scheduled appointment time on the same day I initially called in and finished the job with minimal delay.Vitaly, the technician, was very courteous and explained each step as he went through the evaluation and repair process.I would definitely use Express Appliance Repair again.
I want to thank Express for their quick response to my call for help. They told me the time and the technician called me within half an hour and said I'm coming. I was pleased as punch because the perishables were perishing. He was professional, cleaned up after himself and very informative. I definitely recommend them for your next appliance fix!
We had great service from express appliance repair. We called in the morning and they came in the afternoon to repair my Samsung ice maker on my fridge. They were fast and my appliance was repaired. I would use and recommend their services again.
Called Express Appliance Repair on Monday for my dryer that was making a high pitched squealing noise. They were able to come out the same day and even had the part available to install. No waiting for a return visit.The service technician was polite and quick in his work. I would definitely recommend them and will call again if the need arises.
My experience with them was positive, & aside from having to pay for my dishwasher repair in general, their service was great. From getting a quote to setting up appt to the technician doing repair to their follow up on how rating their own performance I have to say I was impressed. Overall no issue & will recommend
Great service and very knowledgeable. Made one call and technician showed up on time a fixed the problem. No issues, no hidden costs. I will be using them for all my appliance repairs. Recommend this company without hesitation
