I love the idea of colored appliances, and if I had the money, I'd do all that plus paint my cabinets. I believe in living in the home that makes you happy while you're living in it instead of decorating it for the next person. To me, there is no such thing as too much color. I looked at vinyl wraps online, and they're not all that expensive, but I'm not seeing a way to use them on a stove, just the fridge and dishwasher. Maybe that'd be the way to afford the colored appliances if you only had to pay for the expensive stove (though as little as I cook, I could do without a stove altogether and make more room for a fabulous wine fridge).

maureengarrison2: I LOVE your attitude! When we remodeled and decorated our house, we did one thing that took future homeowners into account. It was a mistake.

Just last night, we talked about it and asked each other: "Why the heck were we worried about people we'd never meet?!"

@maureengarrison2 you should look into the cost of having an auto paint shop painting your appliances a different colour. I believe it is cost effective compared to paying for top end appliances.

@Suzanne Melton No matter how you decorate your home whoever buys it is going to make changes. We all live our lives differently and have different requirements of our homes, so even if a buyer absolutely loves your home as is chances are in time they will want/need to make changes. So, live in a space that gives you joy. Unless you are planning to flip a property quickly and make a profit decorate for yourself and don't pander to a mythical future.
