Not everyone is picky about the design of their kitchen appliances. But when it comes to whether or not a small appliance fits on your countertop, you have to consider the design of your coffeemaker when it comes to factoring into your buying decision.

Some coffeemakers are pretty big – and some of us don’t mind that fact. But if counter space is an issue, then you may want to consider the Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Coffee Maker, Programmable Brewstation Summit Dispensing Coffee Machine (48464)

This coffeemaker is built for people without a lot of space or those who dislike a cluttered countertop. It’s sleek and narrow and has fewer traditional features, but still makes a great cup of coffee.

Every brand and model of coffeemaker has a different base size. This matters most in some cases, but maybe you don’t want a model where the top opens up and hits the cabinets above you. Maybe you need a door that opens out, instead.

Some coffeemakers, like the Hamilton, don’t even require space for a carafe at all, making it easier to find a spot for this brewer without having to move things around.

One of the design features that matters most to some people is the color of the coffeemaker. Traditionally, coffeemakers were either black – or black.

You didn’t have a lot of choice in the matter. Then manufacturers started making stainless steel options and coffeemakers in a wide variety of colors, including pink, red, green, orange, blue, and many more.

What type of design features are imperative to you when you buy a coffeemaker? Is it size? Color? Or some other aesthetic appeal?
