As so many of our customers were forced to work from home during the onset of COVID-19, we continued to provide safe shopping & delivery experiences….especially as more homeowners decided to replace or upgrade their appliances with the increased usage! Refrigerators open and closing a whole lot more, dishwashers running throughout the day, ranges & ovens being used 7 days a week while restaurants were closed or we were using caution in our dining choices. Even without dressing up for work or having normal sports leagues, washers & dryers were used more often. Demand for home appliances has stayed extremely strong, but worldwide component shortages caught up to the appliance industry in mid-Summer and still continue today. These shortages, along with factories being re-tooled for distancing, workers not returning due to safety concerns, generous government benefits and even school closings for their children caused major disruptions to supply and productivity. Factories had to use extreme concern for the well being of their employees while still trying to be there for dealers placing huge orders to satisfy customer demand. Our industry has never seen a day where dryers and refrigerators have been unavailable for weeks at a time and cooking products taking months to ship. Some of these appliance industry shortages have been featured in the news both locally and nationally, but we understand that no customer expects to have it affect them when they are in need of a fast replacement in their home. To that end, our team is working hard to provide in-stock options to consider and while we are used to having a wide variety of models & features to select from…that just isn’t possible right now. Our customers have been so patient over the last 6 months while these shortages have affected all of us. We are committed to providing the best experience for our customers…even throughout these difficult times…and appreciate the trust and loyalty the Tampa Bay Area has shown!
Our team is committed to providing safe shopping & delivery experiences through COVID-19…and we offer 4 ways to shop! If you are well and would like to visit our showroom, we are ready to assist…but keep in mind face masks are required along with 6′ distancing. You may also call us and we’d be happy to help you shop via phone. Our website is always available for online shopping and we are happy to offer live chat assistance to help you find just what you’re looking for!
These are unprecedented times and while we are dealing with major product availability issues due to COVID-19, we are working hard to get the important products in stock as fast as possible. Appliance manufacturers have been working through plant closures, reworked production lines for 6′ distancing as well as delays in key components that are made around the world. In addition, many production line workers were unable to come back to work due to health concerns or needing to be home with school age children to facilitate e-learning. We understand the urgency in replacement appliances and want our customers to know that, as an independent dealer we are working hard to provide the best service possible. Our associates are dedicated to customer satisfaction now more than ever!

If you live a minimalist life, it’s probably the simple things that bring you pleasure. From a subtle grey wall to a piece of furniture that is multi-functional, being a minimalist is all about the whole, “less is more” motto. So, if that sort of lifestyle speaks to you, you probably appreciate downsizing your home in any way possible – even when it comes to your appliances.
With a Bosch compact washer and dryer, you can now do laundry quickly and efficiently without taking up a lot of space. Check out these great reasons why your inner minimalist dreams will come true after using a Bosch compact washer and dryer.
- Fit It Anywhere
The Bosch Compact laundry pairs are each 24 inches, making them much smaller than your average washer and dryer. Because of their condensed size, you can fit them almost anywhere in your home! If you have a tiny place, these laundry appliances will be the perfect addition and will never make your home feel cramped. Not to mention, they can also be stacked on top of each other, giving you even more possibilities.
- Control from Your Phone
If you have minimalist tendencies, you probably like to stay organized, especially when it comes to your home’s upkeep. With the Home Connect App, you’ll not only be able to keep an eye on your laundry cycles from afar, you’ll also be able to start a wash or dry cycle with a quick touch of a button on your phone.
You’ll also find that having the Home Connect app on your phone can help you keep up with your daily chores, so you don’t fall behind. For example, instead of forgetting about your clothes after running them through a wash cycle, your phone will now be able to notify you when your clothes are done! You can say goodbye to stale-smelling clothes that have been left in the washer too long. This app is simple and functional, which is exactly what the minimalist doctor ordered.
One big trait of a minimalist is disliking waste. Luckily, these Bosch appliances do too. A Bosch compact washer and dryer are more than just fashionable appliances, they’re also made for a good cause. From the Eco Perfect Cycle that reduces energy consumption by adjusting the temperature, to being one of the few Energy Star qualified dryers on the laundry market, you’ll find that these appliances are more than just good looks – they’re the full eco-friendly package.
When it comes to style, you can never go wrong with a Bosch appliance. It’s where simplicity, functionality, and efficiency meet, making any Bosch appliance a logical choice for a minimalist. And if you need help finding the perfect one for you, speak to one of our friendly and expert sales associates to guide you to the right path.
You may not realize it, but the way you sleep could be affecting the way you live. The angle you rest your head at to the placement of your arms can both play a major part in not only your sleep life, but also your overall health. Over time, if you continue to lay in bed with bad posture, you could potentially get neck pain, sleep apnea, headaches, stomach issues, and so much more.
If you’re looking to prevent these health problems from happening in your future, there are a couple ways to avoid them altogether. There are numerous and proactive ways that you can make sure your sleep is healthy for years to come such as changing your mattress to a Tempur-Pedic or even just adjusting your sleep positions. Take these tips into consideration to help your sleep posture be the best it can be.
- Sleep on Your Back
Only about eight percent of people sleep on their back, but this is hands down the best way to snooze. When you lay on your back, your head, neck, and spine all align, distributing the pressure appropriately throughout your body. While you should never wake up feeling achy, the only big con of sleeping on your back is snoring. Lying down in such a way can allow for your tongue to block your airway making snoring and even sleep apnea more severe.
Fortunately, there is a solution and it involves a Tempur-Pedic mattress. With the help of an adjustable Tempur-Pedic Bed, you’ll have the ability to position your body upright so you can comfortably lay on your back without being in any danger of your airways getting blocked.
- Avoid Laying on Your Tummy
One sleep position you should completely avoid as if it were the plague is sleeping on your stomach. Even if it is your favorite way to sleep, it’s time to move on and find a better way. Our bodies are not meant to lay on our stomachs for long periods of time. We’re just not shaped that way, so our body distributes weight awkwardly when it’s essentially upside down, making your stomach, your spine, neck, and back all start to feel strained and stiff.
- Get a New Mattress
If you don’t think it will be easy to change your sleeping habits, getting a Tempur-Pedic mattress is a great solution. Tempur-Pedic beds are made with Tempur foam, which adapts to your body and conforms to your shape, no matter what position you’re sleeping in. Your body will be able to sink in and be supported in all the right places, giving you personalized comfort.
Whether you have bad sleeping posture or just a bad mattress, picking out a Tempur-Pedic bed to fit your needs will help resolve a good amount of your sleep-related problems. Stop by our store to test out the advanced technology of Tempur material, and you’ll understand how these beds can make any sleep position better.
It’s hard to know how an appliance works if you can’t truly test it out for yourself before you buy it. For this reason, checking reviews has become a ritual for many buyers before making a final decision.
Reviews are so trusted because they come from people who have decided to just go for it and buy the appliance in hopes that it would be everything they dreamed. And people really trust them because they have nothing to prove and only want to let you know what you’re either missing out on or why you shouldn’t waste your time on such a product.
Because it’s National Coffee Month, we wanted to highlight the Bosch Built-In Coffee Machine, and show you, why you’ll want to sip your brew from such a high-tech appliance. Check out these 3 awesome reviews from Bosch.com – from real people — that describe why this Bosch appliance is the best for drinking.
- “Amazing coffee maker”
“Love, Love, Love this machine. My Italian machine died after 12 years and umpteen repairs. Did a lot of research including going to the dealer for a taste test between Bosch and several of its competitors. This machine by far put out the best tasting cup of coffee. When you add in the largest water and bean reservoirs, it was a no brainer. And even though I didn’t think I would use it, the ability to make a cup via an app is really cool. Did I mention I love this machine?”
- “Best part of our new kitchen!”
“I have to admit this coffee machine is the reason I convinced my wife it was time to fully renovate our kitchen. We bought all new Bosch appliances and we love them all (induction cooktop, built-in dishwasher, drawer microwave and convection oven) and we love them all, but this baby takes the prize as my favorite new kitchen toy. The coffee is delicious, the connected app is awesome (we create “coffee playlists” for our guests) and the maintenance is super easy and straight-forward. Love it! “
- “Great machine!”
“We bought this a couple months ago and have had it installed for a little over a month now. We had a nice manual countertop espresso machine for a couple years before this and thought it was great until we started using this machine. We are pretty shocked how good the coffee is that it produces. It was definitely one of the best things we added to our kitchen remodel. Great coffee and just at a press of the button. Highly recommended!”
Now that you know people love it, it’s time to come check it out in person. If you’re curious to learn a little more about this incredible appliance, drop by our store to talk to one of our expert sales associates. We’ll be happy to let you know all about the Bosch Built-In Coffee Machine and why it’s our favorite appliance to make coffee with.
When you cook in your kitchen, you should never have to worry about being able to breathe. But, if your cookery gets exceptionally smoky when you bust out the culinary skills on your appliances, then it’s time you invested in an Electrolux vent hood.
Some people argue that a vent hood is an unnecessary appliance and not needed above your cooking space. We beg to differ and have plenty of reasons why you’ll want one where you cook, bake, steam, and more!
- Breathe Better
The number one reason to get an Electrolux vent hood is to simply breathe better. When cooking, you’ll notice that without a vent or some sort of airway to push air out of your kitchen, the room tends to get a bit smoky. And when the fumes become too intense and don’t have a way of filtering out, it can make cooking a little unbearable.
An Electrolux vent hood has the power to clear out the air with its fan and make the room fresh and breathable. With the LCD electronic control panel, you’ll be able to set your fan speed manually to whatever you need. But, it also has sensors that will turn the fans on automatically if they sense heat or smoke. Soon you’ll be able to take a deep breath without feeling uncomfortable in your kitchen.
- Brighter Kitchen
If you’ve ever wished you had more light over your cooktop or range, then having an Electrolux vent hood is a great idea. These hoods are more than just an appliance for ventilation, they can provide a bit of extra light as well. With some extra halogen lighting illuminating your cooktop surface, you’ll no longer be squinting to see if your water is boiling. Cooking is so much better when you can see what you’re doing.
- Heat Eliminator
During the warm summer months, having a vent hood handy can actually help keep the heat to a minimum. It doesn’t work like an air conditioner and blow cool air out, but the fan is extremely helpful in extracting the heat the same way it extracts the smoke from the air. So, instead of sweating like you just ran a marathon in your kitchen, an Electrolux vent hood can help you stay cooler and keep your focus on the important things. Like cooking up something steamy without soaking in the steam itself.
As you can tell, having an Electrolux vent hood is an ideal way to stay refreshed and comfortable while cooking in the kitchen. Not to be dramatic, but not owning an Electrolux vent hood is a miserable experience and if you’re an avid cooker, you’ll want one of these appliances to make your stay in the kitchen a tolerable one.
Drop in to our store to check out the collection of Electrolux vent hoods we have available. From glass to stainless canopy wall mounts, we’ve got a sleek variety for you to choose from. Find the vent hood that will freshen up your kitchen today!
Raise your hand if you put your laundry in two piles: whites and everything else. This is of course a very daring and reckless way of doing laundry, but it is also a surprisingly common one. If you don’t take the time to separate your dirty clothes before throwing them in the washer, you’ll find out the hard way that dark colors can bleed onto lighter clothes and also how easily shreddable those delicate delicates really can be.
Luckily, GE washers prove just how little of a hassle washing your clothes can be. Especially when it comes to thoroughly washing the most fragile of delicate garments like your great great great great grandmother’s handkerchief that she let Abraham Lincoln blow his nose on during the Civil War. GE Washers are prepared to handle it all with these tough, yet gentle, washing features.
- Steam Assist Feature
Steam not only looks magical, it is magical. If deeply cleaning fabric fibers and loosening stains isn’t magic, we don’t know what is. The Steam Assist feature is a great technique to use on your delicate laundry because it’s tough on stains without hurting or ripping your important items apart. Use this GE washer treatment when you want to get out some mysterious stain that needs some special magic to get it out.
- Precision Dispense Feature
Other than having an efficient wash, GE washers now have the ability to slowly release detergent throughout a wash cycle with the Precision Dispense feature. Normal washing machines immediately release all of the detergent from their dispenser when you start the cycle, but GE washers know that better cleaning performance for delicates happens when the detergent you added splits into smaller doses throughout the wash cycle so that the load continues to stay soapy.
- Delicates Feature
If you are really at a loss for what to do with all your fair clothes, GE washers happen to come equipped with a delicates feature, which automatically takes the guesswork out of what you need to do. But if you feel that you want to tweak with the way the delicates feature washes, you also have the ability to change specific settings, such as the amount of water, temperature, and speed of your cycle. Customize your delicates cycle just the way you feel fits your needs.
No one should ever feel helpless when it comes to doing their laundry. That’s why we’re proud to sell GE washers here: because they make washing clothes easy yet sophisticated. It’s important that you have an appliance that is built to handle the toughest grime, while also being able to destroy dirt thoroughly and gently on your most delicate of materials. Give us a call or stop by to talk to an expert sales associate about more of GE washers’ awesome features that will benefit you. There’s no other washer you’d want in your corner, helping you fight the tough stains than GE washers. Find your cleaning machine today!
Is there anything better than cuddling with your pets? You could argue the point, but we truly believe resting with your furry friend is an important past time you should share with them. Now, where that takes place is a different story. It’s common for people with pets to just let their animals jump up on the bed to snooze with them, but we can’t emphasize enough how bad this is for your Tempur-Pedic mattress.
There’s a time and a place for napping with your little companion, but it’s not when you’re going to sleep. Read on to discover why your fur buddy should probably not participate in your bedtime slumber.
- Dust, Pollen, and Allergens – Oh My!
If you have an outdoor cat and a dog that gets a lot of outside playtime, then you’ll probably be most affected by the mayhem that comes with that. These animals may be clean, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring in fun allergens from outside. From dust particles to flecks of pollen, your pets have a way of bringing these inside and setting your allergies on fire.
If your pets jump into your bed every night, they’re likely to track those unwanted allergens all over your sleep space, which can easily be absorbed into your mattress. Don’t ruin your Tempur-Pedic Mattress or aggravate your senses by letting your “furiend” sleep with you.
- Accidents Happen
Kids can’t always help it, and neither can your pets. Sometimes they get the urge to release their bodily fluids, and then it’s just too late. Your mattress is suddenly wet and smelly and there’s just no going back. So, the best way to keep a clean bed, free of from animal accidents? Just don’t let them on your bed.
You should always try protecting your Tempur-Pedic with a mattress cover anyways, but unfortunately, liquids still have a way of soaking through the protector. Keep the pets off and you’ll never need to worry about a mess occurring.
- Catch a Bug
If you let your cats and dogs up on your bed often, there’s a good chance they’ll bring in more than just dust and pollen from outside. Germs, ticks, and other icky things could easily crawl their way into your bed sheets, and even your mattress! Of course, even if your animals get all the appropriate shots to prevent ticks, worms, and other creepy crawlies, your animals still have microscopic bugs that can easily find their way into your bed which can ultimately mess with your immune system. To prevent waking up with a fever, keep the pups and kitties off the bed.
We know it’s a hard thing not allowing your pets on the bed, but a clean Tempur-Pedic mattress is much better for your health. Try finding another spot you can hang out with your animals on, such as a futon, or consider getting your pet their own bed! Either way, keeping the furry fellows off your Tempur-Pedic will keep your mattress, and you, in a better state. If a pet has ruined your bed and you’re ready for a fresh start, stop by our store today to find a Tempur-Pedic bed void of animal hair.
You may think that the best time to get your daily exercise in was in the morning. Well, we’re here to tell you that getting your fitness activities in before bed may be a better route. Fitness gurus used to recommend only morning or afternoon workouts, but it’s since been realized that as long as you do it about 30 minutes before bed, your body won’t fight to stay awake.
Working out has a way of tiring you out both mentally and physically, which will help you sleep like a baby. It’s always important to have a nice bed, such as a Simmons mattress, but getting your heart pumping a little faster is always a great way to help you get some good rest in. Even better, you can combine any of the following exercises with sleeping on a Simmons to get the best sleep results!
Squats are simple and help you break a sweat in no time. The best part of this little workout is that it requires nothing. You can even squat right next to your Simmons bed and just fall on it as soon as you’re done! Start out by doing 50-100 squats a night. When that starts getting too easy, hold a book to add some weight to your workout. Bump up the intensity by doing 300 when that starts feeling like a breeze. Before long you’ll feel ready for bed and probably start to see improvements in your sleep schedule as well as your body!
If you have a home with stairs, it’s time to start utilizing them for more than just getting to your bedroom. All you need to do is swiftly walk up and down the stairs – that’s it. You can either set a goal for yourself of 200 stairs a night, or you can try doubling up on stairs so you are forced to lunge when walking up the steps. Either way, your body will appreciate the burn and the good sleep you’ll get from it.
Are you looking for a workout that will leave you feeling like you just ran a 3k? A few burpees will do that to you. If you combine a pushup with a jumping jack, you’ll basically get the motions of a burpee. Doing 30 of these will take your breathe away and make anyone ready for a deep sleep. Just be careful when doing these in your home: You’ll want to make sure your ceilings are tall enough, so your hands don’t get smashed during the workout.
Your nightly exercise routine doesn’t have to be intense, it can be as simple as a few yoga stretches. Having a light yoga workout can be great before bed, and even help you unwind from that long and stressful day at the office. Find specific yoga poses you love and work on perfecting them. And, no, corpse pose doesn’t count.
Getting your sweat on before bed can help tire your body and mind out, and make your sleep time a restful one. But, without a good mattress, you’ll continue to have uncomfortable sleep no matter how many exercises you do before bed. Visit our store to find the right Simmons Mattress that’ll help you fall asleep quickly, workout or no workout.
