Sleek black appliances are a common alternative to high-end stainless steel. While stainless steel can attract fingerprints, black appliances tend to hold up better against the assault of sticky little hands and fingers.
Black appliances not only hold up to messes well, but they also are a tad less expensive than high-end stainless steel, so they’re a better pick for a renovation with a budget.
You can get pretty much any style of the appliance in either finish, so you don’t need to worry about whether the style will fit into your idea of a kitchen. While black is fairly popular, stainless steel appliances are more popular. White appliances, less popular.
A simple contemporary foliage pattern on the wall cabinets adds a bit of visual interest to the solid colors.
So whether you dream of an ultra-modern kitchen like the one above, a more rustic styled kitchen, or even a traditional wood and granite kitchen, you’re sure to see a set of beautiful black appliances that will appeal to your sensibilities.
Keep an eye out for particular elements, such as black appliances being used to add contrast with lighter cabinets or countertops.
