So tired of stainless steel? The industrial finish has been a design mainstay of many American kitchens for the past 20 years. Want to see some exciting new kitchen appliance colors and trends?

For those of us who survived avocado green and harvest gold kitchens of 70’s, it’s no wonder neutral appliances have anchored kitchens for the past few decades. From bisque and white of the 80’s and 90’s to modern stainless steel, homeowners have been wary of new appliance colors for a long time. 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. And not without good reason, as these elements can dominate the space and will likely stay in it for many years. That’s not to say you should ignore your kitchen appliances. Colors in the most unexpected places, like a refrigerator or microwave, can have a major impact.

Of course if a red pepper range isn’t your style, don’t worry. You don’t have to delve that deep into color for your kitchen to be on trend, but you do have more options than stainless steel to consider for your kitchen appliance colors. Let’s take a look at some enviable appliances. Kitchen appliance colors highlighted in this blog just might inspire you!

In this ultra modern kitchen, white accentuates the richness of the cabinetry and brings in the brightness from the walls into the space. Here, white provides a stark, visual pop other appliances couldn’t provide. These appliances also provide a continuity in the black and white color combination of the design. Any other color, including stainless steel, would disrupt the color flow of the room.

Here, white goes retro. The soft lines of these appliances relax the space and make an all white kitchen feel warm. Notice again that the floor is wood and there are wood beams on the ceiling. As with the previous kitchen, wood balances white. Without wood, white can be stark and sterile; with wood, white is warm and welcoming.
