Does your carpet match your drapes?

We're in the market for a new stove. We found one we like at Lowe's but it only comes in either black or stainless steel. All our other appliances are white. Fridge, dishwasher, and exhaust hood. We'd like an electric, smooth glass top, with the knobs in front, and no rise in the back. In white. Do all your appliances match?

Black DW, black drop-in smooth top stove, stainless hood, stainless microwave, white fridge. A black fridge would depress me.

Yes, they are all white. The stove is a 1954 O'Keefe and Merritt. The fridge we had to special order to get white. The microwave is white. The dishwasher we couldn't get white so we got a Bosch that you can add a wood front to match the cabinets.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Mine are mismatched. But I have white cabinets so the white dishwasher kinda blends in with the white cabinets and does not look like a mistake near the stainless stove, stainless fridge.

Mine are all black, but every single one is a different manufacturer. I won't buy a Dishwasher other than a Bosch, so I'll never have an all matching set.

Yep. My dear wife wouldn't have it any other way. All white. We're either living way in the past or we're on the cutting edge of the next appliance color trend!

Reminds me of a scene in Diamonds are Forever.

All stainless, as far as my kitchen appliances. smiling smiley
Fridge is a different brand, as the KitchenAid fridges, which the other appliances are, got horrible reviews.

We had all white when we bought the house, but as appliances died, we replaced them with Stainless Steel. The only white one left is our dishwasher that just won't die (I know I shouldn't have written that). My wife thought we'd finally be able to get a Stainless one when the door spring broke many months ago. But YouTube showed me how easy it was to fix the it, so now that's going to have to wait a while. We don't entertain, so it doesn't bug anyone but us and we'd rather save the money right now.

Mix match of white and stainless.

Similar era O'keefe and Merritt to Davester (I think ours is 1952 but not positive). Thought we would get rid of it when we bought the house in 2004 and go stainless but why fix what isn't broken. We love it and don't mind the combo of old an new(ish)

Black wall oven, fridge, and microwave... big stainless air fryer. Our cabinets are stained blue. But, our range is a 1920s iron gas one painted blue and green, with a secret electric top on it, so it works as a modern range. It has an oven, technically, but we don’t have gas and it’s really small. It’s used to store pans.

We have a big mix overall - the table and chairs are 1950s green and yellow, there is old wood furniture, but some modern elements, too.

All stainless, although the stove top is black. But the door is stainless.

No carpet, no drapes. Kitchen is all stainless steel.
We live out in the woods - no neighbors with a sightline into the house. We have BIG dogs, so carpet is nasty - we do have area rugs.

Our oven is black and from the early 70s our cook top is black and from the early 2010s. Our fridge is white and so is our dishwasher.

The carpet upstairs is gray and needs to be replaced with hardwood.

This is exactly what we have.

Bought about 6 years ago from Sears. Don't know who made it for them, but maybe it's still being made by someone.

White stove, almond fridge, stainless sink. As long as they all work properly, I couldn't care less what color they are.

My current setup is nothing color-wise to one I had some years ago in a house that had a kitchen large enough to accommodate the washer and dryer as well as the usual appliances: Dark brown stove, white fridge, harvest gold washer, avocado dryer (all those sat right next to each other in that order), and stainless sink. A colorful selection, no doubt about it, but I found I rather enjoyed the splashes of color in what can often be a very drab room.

They were all off-white. The fridge is now black stainless. But it's a Samsung, so it sucks.

CJ,

Nope. Our fridge, dishwasher, range and microwave are stainless steel. Our washer and dryer (located in our kitchen) are a burgundy red. For me, I'm more concerned about the design, performance and reliability of a product than its color.

All white appliances in the Rick-o household. I didn't have much choice for refrigerator. The opening is so tight, only a few models would fit. All available models we're white, IIRC. I really wanted a model with freezer on the bottom, but no dice.

I held my breath when I replaced it a few years ago. I'm guessing there wasn't more that a 1/16th inch clearance when it was set in place. smiley-shocked003

We are in the same boat with the addition of a stainless microwave over the stove. That and our white dishwasher is on the other side of the sink so we think it looks better blending into the white cabinet color.

LOL.

I thought you were a big fan of the "No Carpet At All" look, thus rendering any discussion of whether the (nonexistent) carpet and drapes match moot.
