How to Choose the Best Finish for Your Kitchen Appliances, Daphne, Alabama

If you’re renovating or redecorating your kitchen, a major aesthetic factor to consider is the finish on your kitchen appliances. Matching appliances will help create a put-together look — but only if they fit into your kitchen color scheme. Here are a few of the most popular finishes currently available, and some tips for matching them to your kitchen.

Your Guide to Kitchen Appliance Finishes

1. White

White appliances are common, and if you want to keep your color scheme as light as possible, they’re the way to go. However, there are different shades of white available — and if you mix them, the odd items can stick out. Choose matching, modern shades and designs if you want the clean, open look of an all-white kitchen.

2. Stainless Steel

kitchen appliancesStainless steel finish is popular for a wide range of dishwashers, ovens, and other kitchen appliances. This makes it easy to match, especially since it will blend in with almost any color scheme. However, you need to be careful when choosing stainless steel items, as this finish is prone to showing smudges and fingerprints. Opt for appliances with a smudge-proof surface treatment.

3. Slate

Slate is a nonreflective, slightly warm dark gray, which makes it ideal for adding a dark accent to neutral-toned color schemes. However, it doesn’t work well with brighter colors and can pull the energy out of a lively kitchen design. It’s a viable choice — you’ll just need to commit to a toned-down color scheme.

4. Black Stainless Steel

For a modern feel, black stainless steel is the way to go. Because it’s bold and dark, you’ll have to design your colors carefully to tie it in, either using dark accents on a mostly white background or trending dark all over. However, with the right mix of colors, you can use black stainless steel to create a dramatic, cutting-edge aesthetic.
