Has the stainless steel mania finally peaked? It’s a debate many appliance experts and homeowners have pondered over for a few years now. Sleek, modern kitchen appliances with a stainless steel finish have been all the rage for the last two decades, and it’s easy to see why. Besides being durable, these kitchen appliances Vernon, BC homeowners love so much are often thought of as timeless. However, in the search for the next best thing in kitchen appliances, some homeowners are playing around with different finishes, styles, and colours. Here’s a breakdown of some of the newest colour offerings from some of the best brands out there.
COLOURED STAINLESS FINISHES
Is black stainless the new must-have kitchen trend?
Samsung, LG, and KitchenAid are among the first to launch black stainless steel appliance line-ups. These appliance masterminds have taken their already-popular stainless steel models and added a smooth black-hued coating. A modern take on both stainless and black appliances, we think this trend is here to stay.
Not to be outdone, Whirlpool has started dabbling in coloured stainless steel finishes too. Still in the early phases of production, the sunset bronze set is as warm and inviting as it is completely unique. Although this stunning finish isn’t available for purchase quite yet, we’re sure this trend will be popping up in kitchens all over the Okanagan in the near future.
Blue Star, a brand that specializes in commercial-style appliances for residential kitchens, has also been experimenting with coloured stainless steel collections. Their Precious Metals collection features finishes such as Enchanted Sand, Infused Copper, and Ginger Spice. We can see these being the next big appliances Vernon, BC homeowners will love.

MODERN COLOURED APPLIANCES
Viking offers a stunning variety of coloured appliances to tailor your kitchen perfectly to your style.
In what appears to be a tribute to the old avocado-coloured appliances that ruled residential kitchens in the 60s and 70s, some appliance companies are adding coloured appliances to their line-ups. Viking and Blue Star are among some of the few offering up coloured appliances. In fact, Blue Star actually offers a palette of 750 different colour selections. If you want to incorporate some out-of-the-box kitchen appliances into your home, purchasing bold, coloured appliances is a great way to do it. In fact, we’ve heard these are the appliances Vernon homeowners are starting to focus on.
FULLY INTEGRATED APPLIANCES
Sub Zero offers integrated products that can be customized with panels and handles.
If stainless steel and coloured finishes don’t speak to you like they do to other homeowners, there is another option available. Integrated appliances are the best appliances for the homeowners that aren’t interested in eye-catching kitchen appliances. By selecting fully integrated appliances, you can spend more time choosing fine woods to be incorporated into your custom cabinetry instead.
