Kitchen Poll
Okay I put this in the kitchen section because well...Refrigerators go into the kitchen. I am moving in about a month to a house that I will need to buy a refrigerator for. Now my question is...should I get a stainless steel refrigerator or a black refrigerator? The appliances are all black right now. I am not a fan of black appliances in general but I don't know if I should buy a black fridge just because the other appliances are all ready black or would it look ok to have a stainless steel fridge. I am afraid that if I get a big black fridge it will make the kitchen too dark looking. What would you do?

Re: Kitchen Poll
I think either would work. Personally I don't like the stainless steel ones b/c they get so dirty with fingerprints so fast :( But I know a lot of people who love them.

Re: Kitchen Poll
I say a stainless because...well....I think that it would look good with the black appliances. Clean and modern. :thumbsup: If you get some stainless cleaaner, it helps keep fingerprints off! :mrgreen:

Re: Kitchen Poll
I say stainless. The black might be too overwhelming. Also this sounds stupid but if hanging magnets on your fridge is something you like, then take one with you when you pick out your stainless fridge. We ordered ours for the builder to install and magnets don't stick to it. go figure, it was expensive too? And you do see alot of finger prints, but I wipe my appliances down alot anyway.Hope that helps?~ Windy

I like the way stainless steel looks much more than black. But it is a pain to keep clean, especially with little fingers around the house.

Re: Kitchen Poll
I voted for Stainless because eventually you might want to switch over to all Stainless, and then you wouldn't have to get another refrig.

Re: Kitchen Poll
I just bought a black fridge for my kitchen and It actually brightened my kitchen, doesnt make sense and I have a fairly small galley kitchen But it looks really nice and I dont have to worry about damge to stainless steel. And I really like to put magnets on it so That was a bummer for me with stainless. BUt if you love stainless and think you might replace everything eventually get stainless.

Re: Kitchen Poll
I voted black, but that's bc we have a stainless one and hate it. Also, I have a friend who is a realtor and she says she's been seeing a trend of moving away from stainless, so if that helps any...
