How To Choose Appliance Color for Your Kitchen

If you are currently remodeling your kitchen you probably have a good idea how you want it to look.  Most likely, you have picked out a cabinet color, tile backsplash, and even countertops. There might, however, be one thing you haven’t thought of – your appliance color.

The color you choose for your appliances can make a big difference in the final look of your kitchen. But, choosing an appliance color simply because you like it doesn’t always work out for the best.  In order to choose the best appliance finish for your home, you need to consider the footprint of the kitchen. At the same time, consider available lighting, and how often (and by who) the appliance will be used.

Stainless Steel Appliances

Perhaps the most popular option, stainless steel appliances, is a hit among homeowners. They look sleek, are rather timeless, and go with almost any color decor. However, if you have little ones running around the house and opening up your refrigerator doors, stainless steel appliances might not be the best option. Stainless steel is easily smudged and shows fingerprints. Accept that it requires frequent cleaning if this is your choice.

Black Appliance Color

Black appliances have made a rather big comeback in recent years and many homeowners are choosing black appliances because they offer a modern feel at an affordable price. Appliances in black are a great option for families because they don’t show a lot of dirt. However, homeowners with small or dark kitchens should be aware that black appliances will make their kitchen look smaller than it already is.

Paneled Appliances

Believe it or not, you can have appliances that don’t look like appliances at all. Paneled appliances blend into any kitchen seamlessly by placing matching cabinet doors on the front.  Homeowners with all kinds of kitchens (big and small) choose this option because it offers a feeling of luxury and elegance.
