@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.

I have gotten excited about this in the past, but retro, color, and quality/options don't necessarily come all together, especially for the price. I got sick of S.S. in my last kitchen, moved towards white w/ SS trim. Slightly retro without the crazy price tag. But don't get me wrong, I would LOVE a $25,000+ french range!!!

Jolene, LaCornue might be $25K and up, but Lacanche is much less. A Lacanche is still not cheap though. They do have minimal electronics and so should last a lifetime. They are extremely well built.
