Kitchen remodel - mixed metal appliances?
May 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My husband and I are loving the sleek slate appliances offered by GE, but we need a slide-in range and I'm not sure they offer it in slate. Also not sure yet that I like the microwave/dishwasher in slate. How strange is it to have some slate and some stainless in a kitchen?

Some people will certainly comment if they see that the appliances are not all the same. So it's a consideration for resale. But from a design standpoint, the big issue is balance, I think. So don't add just one slate item, or if you do, add other items to the kitchen that have the same appearance--same color and sheen. If there are a few stainless items in the kitchen and a few slate items, you should end up with a pleasing overall look.

I love the look of a slate refrigerator and dw with a stainless slide in range. Especially if the set up is such that the range falls somewhere in between the other two appliances. It's a really good look. Things matching perfectly does not mean good design. As Linda mentioned above, balance is key and there is enough ss on the range to tie the appliances together nicely.
