what is best brand for fridge next to double oven

techno_mommyOctober 11, 2013

I need all new appliances for remodel. Because of the rebate, I was considering a Bosch double oven, to go with the Bosch 800 36" cooktop & dishwasher. I would really prefer the knobs on the 500 series oven, but the 800 has a 2nd convect oven and would get the higher rebate with the other 800's. My problem is that the oven and fridge will be next to each other and almost a "feature" in the kitchen, looking at that wall when seated at the peninsula. I'm not in love with the look of the Bosch ovens and I will not buy at Bosch fridge. I've been cautioned about the stainless in different brands being obvious when sitting next to each other.

I am usually a function over form person and don't care if appliances match, but in this case (with the money spent for the remodel) I think it needs consideration. Do I have to go with GE or KitchenAid for fridge & oven? Electrolux or Frigidaire? What is my best bet? I need the fridge to be counter depth FD.

Even within the same brand, stainless steel finishes don't necessarily match. Definitely go with function over form - you can find appliances that look good together without matching brands.
