While stainless steel appliances have been reigning king over the last years in modern kitchen design, a new competitor has been creeping up for those who don’t want to conform in terms of colour. The styles can range from sleek and European, to retro and wacky, but coloured appliances are always a fun way to add a pop of colour.
Nicole Hubert is an interior designer at Design First Interiors in Ottawa. She says she has noticed coloured appliances slowly growing in popularity with her clients.
“Neutral colours are still the norm for sure,” she says. “But, for those who are looking for contemporary design, especially younger people, coloured appliances can be very interesting and appealing.”
She does caution against putting in coloured appliances if you are looking to sell your home soon because bright colours are very personal and do not appeal to everyone. But, if you plan on staying and want to make your kitchen a little more interesting, here is a list of some great appliances that scream originality and style.
