Re: Kitchen Poll

Please take a look at this link before buying anything! I just did some research on energy efficiency and fridges. Top or bottom freezer fridges tend to be more energy efficient than side by side fridges.

I'd say that stainless is still pretty in (I am a design blog junkie), but that efficiency, price and such should also be strong considerations. Stainless models often cost a few hundred more "just because."

Whirlpool makes a satin finish that does not look funny. It is a $100 more than black and it looks great. The best part is no finger prints and no scratching. I LOVE IT!!

I personaly don't like like stainless so I voted black. I also have a kitchen with all black appliances and I am pretty happy with it.

Re: Kitchen Poll

I voted black..... it looks more streamlined to have all the appliances the matching color, IMO. Plus, stainless steel fridges, while they really are nice to look at, get FULL of fingerprints in no time.

Good point. However, you could also consider a stainless-look fridge... they're made to look kind of like stainless steel, but they don't get dirty/show fingerprints as fast.

Re: Kitchen Poll

It sucks that everything is already black. I voted other, but since they are all black to begin with I would probably go black. Stainless shows EVERYTHING!!! If your LO likes to touch things, you will have endless fingerprints all over your fridge. The black is also had to keep clean at times, my mom and dad have black and the surface scratches when she wipes it clean, even with just a damp microfiber cloth. She has had to wax the fridge...she hates it. They dont have any kids so it isnt quite as bad, but when the GC come over it can get quite mucky. If you are thinking about replacing the appliances over the next few years you could go with something else altogether and live with them being differant for the time being. Also if you do go with black try to get one that is textured and not smooth shiny...maybe that would help with the scratching.

Re: Kitchen Poll

I want to say if your other appliances are black, then get a black refrigerator. But if you don't like black appliances, I say go with stainless steel that maybe has some black accents (door handles or something) on it.

Re: Kitchen Poll

I voted other because I like white best, but I'll offer one addtl bit of info: I recently bought a fridge phonics set from a DS lady because she said it wouldn't "stick" (magnetically) to her new stainless steel fridge! Something to consider. <g>
