We’re gearing up for a big renovation of our home this spring, and we’re going to need all new appliances in the kitchen. White appliances. Not trendy stainless steel – white.
Now, you probably don’t know this about me, while I love helping my clients pick out fabrics and paint colors, I have a big problem picking out things for my own home. I think it’s because I know there are so many choices and different directions to go.
The one room in our house that I’m very clear about how I want to update it, is the kitchen. I want a white kitchen. I love white, it’s so clean and fresh looking.
I have a Kitchens board on Pinterest, and I’ve noticed most of the kitchens I’ve pinned are white. It’s harder to find pictures of white kitchens that have white appliances, most are stainless steel. Here’s one I love from Sarah Richardson Design (my all-time favorite designer).
I’ve always had white appliances in all of our houses. Here’s a picture of our kitchen in it’s current state. I really loved this kitchen when we built our house in the mid-ninety’s. (You can see I have always had a thing for white!)
A while back, I watched this video in which Sarah Richardson and her design team member, Tommy, are answering Facebook readers’ questions. The question was – “Will there ever be a place for gold or avacado appliances?” Tommy says no, except in period movies. Then he says that he thinks white appliances are coming back in style. Yay!
So, to answer my own question, I think it’s definitely OK to have white appliances. Actually, I think it’s OK to have whatever color makes YOU happy, whether it’s trendy or not. That goes for everything in your home.
What do you think? White appliances – yay or nay?
