Joey and I will soon be purchasing new appliances for our new kitchen - including a refrigerator, dishwasher, range, and over-the-range microwave. As such, we have battled the age old question, which color of appliances should we buy?
Obviously, stainless steel appliances seem to be the rage in this season of kitchen makeovers. And while they do look really nice and sleek in a new kitch, we aren't convinced they're the best option for us. First of all, they are priciest option (and money is getting tight these days). Second, are they just another "trendy" item? Will they soon go the way of the era of almond-colored appliances?
We've also considered traditional white appliances. Nice, white appliances come with a middle-of-the-road price, fit the style of our kitchen well, and probably won't become outdated any time soon. But then again, will white appliances with white cabinets be too boring? Or what if they 2 "whites" don't match each other - will that look weird?
Black appliances also offer a middle-of-the-road price, but add contrast to the white cabinets. However, I've never really seen myself as a "black appliance" type of girl, if you know what I mean.
So, what would you do if you were purchasing appliances for a kitchen with white cabinets? Fork out the cash for the stainless steel? Keep it plain and simple? Please share in the poll at the top right or leave a comment...
*Edit: I removed the poll since it didn't seem to be working right (gotta figure that one out). Please leave a comment! Thanks!
