Imagine your kitchen with absolutely no major appliances. It’s basically a blank canvas, ready for you to install completely new appliances of any design and with any finish you want.
So, what do you choose?
It’s not an easy decision to make. Stainless steel may be a timeless finish, but maybe you’re looking for black appliances that make a statement in your kitchen. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong, but we’ve got the lowdown on all the different appliance finishes you should be aware of.
Take these finishes into consideration when in the market for a new suite of appliances.
Contemporary like stainless steel
If there’s one appliance finish that people love, it’s stainless steel. And how could you not? This appliance goes well with EVERYTHING. It has the power to make any old kitchen feel new and modern.
Most stainless steel appliances are fingerprint-resistant now as well, making these guys perfect for those curious kids who like to put their little fingers all over the place. If you’re looking for something that will play it safe in your kitchen, getting major appliances with a stainless steel finish is the way to go.
Black when you’re feeling bold
If you love drama, black or black stainless steel may be the next best color for your appliances. It’s such an intense hue that when paired with any other color (especially white), it makes quite the vivid contrast. If you are all about making a statement, this will definitely do the job!
You may want to stay away from this appliance finish if you have a smaller space. Having a lot of black in a small area can make your kitchen look tiny and crowded. Avoid this finish altogether if you want an open and bright kitchen.
Cozy with slate
The warmness of slate appliances blends perfectly with wood accents and cabinets, making it a great finish for homes with that rustic feel. While slate has similar benefits of stainless steel, such as the being smudge and fingerprint resistant, it unfortunately might clash with some kitchen styles.
If you find that the homey hues of slate fit into your kitchen’s aesthetic, we say go for it!
White brings in the light
White appliances are classic and clean, making every minimalist shout for joy at the sight of them. While it seems like they may get dirty often due to their milky exterior, this is a small price to pay. It’s all worth it for the amount of light a white-appliance-filled kitchen can bring into your home. Not to mention, it has the ability to expand a small room, so it seems much larger than it actually is.
If your ideal kitchen is light colored marble countertops with white cabinets, adding white appliances to the mix will really illuminate the entire room.
