appliance finish question

adeligiannisApril 5, 2014

I was wondering if it's OK to mix appliance finishes in the kitchen? For example, Whirlpool ice refrigerator and dishwasher with a GE profile stove and convection/microwave in stainless steel. Thanks for the input.

yes you can if you like ! some people prefer all the same make - but this doesn't matter if this is a place for you - and you are choosing each appliance to suit you specifically ! a bit different if this is a flipper ?

It's best to have all the same finishes I think.

The eternal problem (oft repeated on previous discussions) is that some manufacturers make very good fridges, or good ovens or good microwaves so if you really cook extensively and are an expert cook - you probably want the one that works the very best. Which means cherry picking.However, the drawback is that nowadays visible elements such as microwaves, ovens, steamers, hobs etc have differing designs between manufacturers so you can notice the differences (some obvious, some not so much).That is big drawback to mixing appliances.In your cases, your refrigerator and dishwasher can be custom panelled or stainless steel - which makes them pretty versatile. If the stove and microwave are different, you may have to watch out for variations in style design.
