STAINLESS STEEL VS. WHITE
Stainless steel appliances have been the main player in kitchens for some time now. Needing a special cleaner and being nothing short of high maintenance stainless steel doesn’t live up to its name. A while back our fridge went out. Right at Christmas time I was keeping leftovers in a mini fridge and at our neighbors. We had no choice but to buy a new one.
When my husband and I settled on a model he asked me about the color. What color would I like? Black, white or stainless were the options. I was torn between stainless steel and white. Our cabinets, stove, and microwave are white and I thought white would look best but I’ve always liked stainless steel too. Our kitchen style is a country farmhouse look and I like the clean white and bright feel of it. So I took a leap and ordered white.
I’m so glad I did…. it’s not your grandma’s wrinkly fridge with the weird lines on it from the 90’s. This baby is sleek! It has a new finish and really complements the room. It’s squeaky clean….till one of the boys touches it. But even then I can’t tell its dirty. With stainless, it shows a mark if you even walk too close to it! I read this article about how white appliances are making a comeback and stainless steel soon will look dated and people will be like “that’s so 2000’s.” You can read that post below.
White appliances are the new thing. What new kitchen trends will we have in the coming years? I like the classic look so hopefully, this trend continues and we can boot stainless steel to the side. I say that as my stainless steel dishwasher is staring at me. Sorry, Betsy! I picked you out on sale and didn’t have much choice in your color.
OUR REFRIDGERATOR IS AWESOME!
If you are in the market for a new fridge, I highly recommend mine. It’s the 25.4 Side By Side Refridgerator by GE. There is a link below to the model along with some pictures of it. My favorite things about this fridge are the slide out shelves. You never have to reach into the back of the fridge.It also has clear shelf storage on the doors which I love. It’s easy to clean inside and out, and I love how quiet it runs.
I love our fridge. After using it for a whole year, I have nothing but good news. We’ve had no problems with it. No scuff marks or staining. My boys did take a permanent marker to it. With rubbing alcohol it all came off. It never has an old fridge smell and it keeps everything at the perfect temperature. I really love how it fits ALL our food and leftovers.
Let me know in the comments below which look you like. WHITE or STAINLESS?
