The Color of Design: White and Stainless Steel Appliances

In the past year, designers have noticed an increase in white appliances or a combination of white and stainless steel appliances. Which kind do you have, and which would you prefer?


As you take a look around your kitchen, especially if you are considering kitchen remodeling, what stands out? Having an idea of what you want to change most will give us an idea of how to design with your focus in mind.


If new appliances is at the top of your list, there are a few things to think about when choosing white or stainless steel:


  • How will one or the other fit in with the overall theme of your kitchen?
  • Do you have a real preference for one or the other?
  • Are you okay with the different types of cleaning necessary to make either kind of appliance look its best?


Answering these types of questions will give you a good idea of what kind of appliances you need in your kitchen. Design service consultants here will look at all of the options and suggest ideas and solutions that suit your ultimate needs and desires for your kitchen.

Is There a Difference?


Visually, the difference is obvious, but when viewed through a designer’s eye, the chosen appliances will end up being a harmonious complement to your kitchen’s overall design.


There is interest now, as well, in combining the two for a more dynamic appeal. You might have a white refrigerator with stainless steel accents, for instance. 


We will help you find appliances that are sturdy, trustworthy, and fulfill what you need in your kitchen, regardless of the color.
