Robert, appliances have been white in kitchens before you were born and will be white after you and I are gone. Black is a fad. Got your hula hoop handy?


I understand that red is the next trend. And then dark blue.  Sigh.

The ovens themselves sell for around $1000, but then you have to buy a $500
range top that is separate and then all the building materials to
accommodate both.  I have priced it out on a couple occasions, we have the
itch to redo the kitchen, but a little more than hesitant to fork over the
dough to do it.

I don't like white either, and won't do white.

I can get a full set of hardly used if at all black/stainless appliances for
real cheap as builders have their agents sell them thru the company when a
buyer wants to change them out, or they just take them to the next spec home
and see what flies but I don't think that is real ethical(its not a new
appliance if it sat installed in another house for a year)  I have seen
entire sets, Range/oven, dishwasher, microwave and side by side fridge for
$1,000 to $1500 which is pretty good but you get what you pay for with
appliances I guess.

Would probably just do Black, the smooth finish black appliances are real
nice looking and don't have the negative issues stainless does, and it won't
likely be as trendy (who knows how long that phase will last)

Our plan to redo the kitchen will include a set up like that. Ours is
original 1972ish built in double oven, separate range top/burners and
counter top microwave. To redo the double ovens will cost over $2000 extra
and in our house/ price point- a built in double oven is somewhat of an
extravagance. The nice part about Franks setup is that its easy to
change/replace and space efficient. I like it Frank, well done.

It looks lik that basement fireplace is screaming for a finished bsmt
family room home theater area. The fireplace is lonely down there.



                  Ouch...   Our local Habitat store has had hundreds of
brand new double ovens. Some are Amana but there are a number of Jen aire
and kitchen aids..  From 700-900 All stacked in rows looking like the
shipping dpt of an oven factory.  The only problem is that they are all
white. White is a real bad color for a kitchen. It looks dirty before you
even walk in there.
