However, stainless steel does tend to be more modern in look, and more expensive in price. For my kitchen I want white cupboards, and you know what? I love white appliances in an all white kitchen. They don't clash and why draw attention to the functional part of a kitchen - I want to focus on the pretty parts!
Ok, so a Smeg fridge and this beautiful freestanding oven aren't exactly budget-friendly, but my focus is more on the way they blend in with the cabinets.

This kitchen just wouldn't have the same serene white feel if the dishwasher and oven were in stainless steel.

A fridge is such a large piece in a kitchen, and in an all white space, a stainless steel fridge can dominate a space. This white one blends in beautifully with the traditional white cabinetry.

So what do you think? Would you embrace white appliances, or do you think stainless steel is here to stay?
