It’s a new decade, and what better time to spruce up your kitchen. Maybe you’ve found yourself looking at Fabrizio Kitchen & Bath’s gallery, wondering whether you can mix and match your appliances. Perhaps you thought its time to get a dishwasher that cleans all your dishes. Mixing appliances won’t affect the way your oven cooks or how cold your beer gets, but clashing hues is not a great look. In the new decade, it comes down to aesthetics to have the best looking cooking.
This is a personal preference. Unless you’re personally very particular, brand matching isn’t a requirement during a kitchen remodel. If you’re looking to save money, customers can often save money buying their appliances from a single manufacturer, even with the high-end devices.
Mixing and matching brands can work in kitchens but be sure to build a kitchen where all the appliances match in color. This is for people who don’t want to buy all new appliances at once, and for those who want the option to replace appliances over time. Double down on contrast colors like white with silver or black, or red or blue with white or silver. Black appliances are the most popular with homeowners that want a traditional style in their kitchens. In smaller kitchens, the black color takes up less space than other colors. White appliances are a popular choice for people who prefer a retro look. Stainless appliances are found mostly in large chef-style kitchens. Mixing and matching brands become more difficult with stainless appliances because their metal can be slightly different between brands.
Do you strive for perfectionism when it comes to your home? At Fabrizio Kitchen & Bath, we recommend purchasing appliances from the same manufacturer. Homeowners that can’t stand for anything to be slightly inconsistent will have a difficult time dealing with the differences between the logos, knobs, and handles of mismatched appliances.
While it is possible to find brands that have a very similar aesthetic, the variations in the shape and colors will probably be too much for a perfectionist. If you are the type of person that keeps all of your canned food items lined up and must fold your laundry immediately, mismatched appliance brands are not for you.
