What Color Kitchen Appliances Should I Get?

April 7, 2009

stainless steal appliancesI am in the process of looking for a new fridge. My present one is beige, cabinets are a dark oak. The microwave, wall, oven and dishwasher are black. I am thinking about getting a black fridge, but wonder if it would make the room look too dark? The floor is a red brick linoleum pattern. Thanks in advance.

I had a beige fridge and the rest of my appliances were black, and I hated it so purchased a black one so all would match. It pretty much boils down to whether or not your fridge being a different color is something that has been bothering you. If not, why not go with beige. If so, you need to go with black.

If you are able (and willing) to paint the black wall beige, that should lighten the room a lot.

Sounds like your kitchen may be too dark already.
Try throwing something long and black over the fridge and then see what the room looks like.

The fridge will become the elephant in the room. The kitchens I have seen with the black fridges DO look like they are enormous. Center of attention.


My other appliances (stove, dishwasher) are the black fronts but I want the biggest one in the room to be the least conspicuous.

I have bisque appliances and my side by side is on the brink. I would like to know what color I can match with the bisque color. I'm looking at the French door model for more space. My other appliances are only three years old so there's no need to replace all.

I am replacing several appliances in my kitchen. I have just purchased a beautiful cottage style kitchen table in black.


I am wanting to incorporate black into the kitchen but not overdo it (with black).

The kitchen we are updating is the standard oak cabinets with cream/neutral counter tops. The floor is neutral tan ceramic tile. We would like to replace the counter tops and appliances.
