Help with choice of appliances
January 26, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Designing a kitchen and everything shows with stainless appliances. Are they still hard to keep clean or have they improved? I still like my white but don't want to be dated!

White appliances in the right kitchen can look great.

Stainless steel still shows finger prints very easily. Some manufacturers make print resistant SS finishes. Look into those. Electrolux was one of those companies, but I don't know if they still do. Side note: I find that the "cheap" option of "stainless steel look" on some appliances show prints less readily than true SS.

Peruse the thousands of photos of kitchens with white appliances:

Maytag recently released a new white. Ice Appliances. They also redid the black. This is to make the appliances more modern. It's on their website. And another company GE- came out with Slate versus ss. See the Appliance Trends on our website under Trends all of the above is on our website.

White is never dated it has never gone out of production it is timeless. Stainless looks now have finishes that do not show finger prints and are easy to clean.

I love this kitchen with the white stove next to the white cabs and a touch of stainless where you need it…the burners. The lowering sun just hit my stainless fridge, which I cleaned this morning. YUK!
