When it comes time to remodel your kitchen or if you are building a new home, choosing colors for your kitchen is one of the most exciting things you will have to do. In addition to choosing colors for flooring walls and cabinets, you will need to choose a color for the finish on your appliances. The color of your refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, even your washer and dryer, can have an impact on the room. It can be difficult to choose the right finish when you are standing in the showroom because this is when the appliance looks its best. Spills, splatters or smoky meals can take a toll on a finish. These tips can help you choose the appliance finish that will work best for you and your family.
Match Your Décor
The first thing to do is match your appliance finish to your home’s décor. If you already have a microwave and wine cooler in stainless steel, you will probably want to continue with a uniform look throughout the room. If you have a farmhouse-style kitchen, you won’t want sleek, modern appliances. You will probably want to go with white or gold. Older style kitchens work better with appliances that are not shiny. A retro kitchen style based in the 60s or 70s might call for colors like bronze or avocado.
There is nothing wrong with being bold in your appliance color choice. Rose gold or copper can look beautiful in many different kitchen styles. The colors are warm and pleasant. Several manufacturers are offering bright colors, like blue and orange to bring a pop of color into the kitchen. Paired with white cabinets, these colors will stand out.
Don’t Avoid White
White appliances are making a comeback and if you are trying to save money, this is good news. A white appliance can save you $100 or more over stainless steel finishes. The interior of the appliance is the same so all you are changing is the finish. Manufacturers are now promoting white appliance lines that have attractive chrome accents for a modern look.
Dirt and Grime
One thing to consider when choosing an appliance finish is how well it hides dirt and grime, especially if you have children. There are slate and black slate finishes now that hid fingerprints and smudges well. There are also matte finishes that hide smudges better than shiny surfaces.
