white refrigerator

smleersNovember 7, 2013
We are getting ready to begin a major kitchen renovation in our 105 year old house. Since I love to cook and my husband loves to entertain we want a really beautiful functional kitchen. The problem: my husband wants a Subzero refrigerator, or something equally large, expensive and excellent. I want a white metal refrigerator. I don't want panels and I hate stainless steel. The only solutions we can come up with are 1. take the subzero to an autobody shop and have it painted white or 2. there are appliance art companies that sell giant white magnet sheets that we can apply. Help? I will update when we decide!

You could also apply solid white laminate as a panel on a Sub-Zero refrigerator and apply your own custom handles as a possible option. Laminates can be easy to clean! You can get them in a different sheen, i.e. Matte or Gloss as well. Hope this is helpful to you!

If you are set on Sub-Zero, get a panel ready model. You can use pretty much any material as a front. I have used acrylic panels of different colors before. The acrylic does tend to be prone to scratching, so the lighter colors (like white) work better.

Also Viking offers a collection of colors on their refrigerators. They do offer white.

Concur with Frank...white plexiglass may solve all the problems.

Has your husband looked at Sub-Zero's? They are shallow and very expensive to fix. I know they look nice, but if you are remodeling, you can make a custom cabinet for a regular fridge. My fridge is about 6 years old and a new condenser set me back almost $2,000. I also had to replace a couple of other things. If I had a regular fridge with these problems, I just would have replaced it.
