But after a long break from more vibrant appliance colors, trends are shifting back in that direction.

When designing a kitchen or contemplating a color palette, most people’s first thoughts go to the cabinets, countertops and backsplashes.

Of course if a red pepper range isn’t your style, don’t worry.

Color Considerations

When it comes to color in the kitchen, you have to love it. Really love it. If not, just leave it. You should expect to live with an appliance for a while, and you don’t want your beautiful eyeful to become an ugly eyesore within just a few weeks or months.

Let’s say you have found a color you love. In fact, you want it for every single appliance in your kitchen. You may want to check with the manufacturer that they will continue to produce each particular appliance in your chosen color. If not, you could be stuck with an appliance hodge-podge in a few years, your suite of color gone.

One way to avoid obvious appliance mismatch is to simply coordinate appliances. The most straightforward way to do this is to pick one appliance to showcase color. Generally this appliance would be the range. You can coordinate the accents on the range, let’s say stainless steel or black with stainless steel appliances. You could also match white cabinets with a white refrigerator and dishwasher, letting the range be the colorful focal point of the kitchen.
