What appliance color is timeless?

Both white and stainless steel appliances are timeless choices, but mixing and matching appliance colors can give you the best of both worlds.

Good kitchen design is about so much more than just the functional aspects of the space.

If you want a truly timeless kitchen design, which will hold up over time, then sticking to white and/or stainless steel appliances, or to a scheme that mixes colors, is the best way to go.

The importance of good kitchen design

The kitchen is often one of the rooms in a home where families spend the most of their time. These spaces are also highly practical, with useful appliances, plenty of preparation space and a variety of storage options all taking priority.

Therefore, a good kitchen design will combine aesthetic and practical elements. This will ensure that the space is usable, but is still welcoming and beautiful enough that friends and family feel comfortable to gather in the space and enjoy themselves.

What appliance color is timeless?

When you first start picking out all of the elements of a kitchen, it can be easy to get carried away and wrapped up in all of the varying color options and designs.

Unfortunately, appliance styles, like the styles of just about everything else in the home, tend to chop and change with every new season.

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to afford (or even want) to change your appliances out so frequently.

Which is why it is best to stick to a timeless color which will go with most kitchens and design styles, over a trendy color or design that may only appeal to you for a short period of time.

Sticking to simple and classic designs throughout your kitchen, but especially in pricier elements like your bigger appliances, is a great way to ensure that you will love the way that your kitchen looks for a long time.

Moreover, you will be able to change up smaller items now and then without having to redo the entire space.

Timeless design elements may not always be so easy to pick out among the different options in a store or online, but sticking to timeless colors like stainless steel or white, can narrow down your choices considerably.

Both stainless steel and white appliances are incredibly popular because they are versatile enough to go with just about any design style.

But if you want a kitchen that truly offers the best of both worlds when it comes to timeless and stylish appliances, mixing and matching can be a great option too.

The benefits of stainless steel appliances

Stainless steel appliances are definitely a more modern choice, but this does not necessarily mean that they are trendy.

Stainless steel appliances often lend a really professional and high-end appearance to a space, but the color is a good, neutral mid-tone that works with both darker and lighter tones.

The stainless steel color is also usually fairly easy to match if any of your appliances need to be replaced, which just adds to their timeless appeal.

The benefits of white appliances

White appliances are another great choice, especially if you have a classic all-white kitchen design. White appliances can certainly help to brighten up a space and can make even the smallest of kitchens feel wide open.

But because this color is so neutral, white appliances work really well with a vast variety of design styles.

White appliances can often blend into the background. This means that you will be able to switch up the color of your cabinets or the style of the room’s design quite easily, without having to worry about your appliances clashing.

Why not mix and match appliances?

There are certainly benefits to sticking to the classic white and stainless steel colors for most of the major appliances in your home.

However, it can be awfully difficult to walk or scroll past a bold and colorful appliance, though it may not be such a timeless choice.

If you are tempted to add one of these trendier pieces to your kitchen, but you still want the overall style of your kitchen to be classic and timeless, then you should consider mixing and matching your larger, timeless pieces with a few smaller pieces that speak to the latest design trends.

The days where it was customary for all of the appliances in your home to match are certainly well behind us.

Moreover, having a combination of white, stainless steel, black and even bold and colorful appliances can be a great way to create some contrast in your overall design, and to avoid that matchy-matchy showroom look.
