Buying Floor Model Appliances : Tips For Smarter Appliance Shopping

Buying demo model appliances can offer you all the style and features of an upscale kitchen appliance and save you money. When a manufacturer releases new appliance models, dealers typically replace older showroom appliances with the newer models. These showroom-used units are often sold to the public, allowing you to get luxury appliances at a fraction of the original cost.

A showroom used appliance may be lightly used to demonstrate product features to customers. In some cases, it’s not used at all and is simply on the showroom floor to give people an idea of what the appliance will look like once they get it home and out of the box. Photos and videos can give customers an idea of what an appliance looks like, but customers in a showroom want the option of seeing appliances close up, opening and closing the doors, touching the grates on a stovetop to see how sturdy they are, etc. and showroom model appliances fulfill this need.

If you like the idea of saving money on a showroom appliance, but wonder if it will work as well as a new in box model, you have the chance to speak with a salesperson about the condition of the appliance before buying it. Viewing all available images of the appliance before you purchase is also a good way to ensure that you know what you are getting. If you happen to live in the same city that you are purchasing from, you can even visit the showroom and see the product in person.

At Designer Home Surplus, we specialize in discounted floor model appliances. These slightly damaged appliances have been thoroughly cleaned, inspected and tested by a certified appliance technician. Most damage to showroom models is superficial (like small dents in a range’s back panel, for example) and can be hidden once the appliance is installed.
