To panel or not to panel - dishwasher ed.
So my reno is moving along (at a snail's pace I might add)...but I'm at the doorstep of deciding whether to panel my d/w or just get stainless like the fridge. The issue is that my fridge and d/w sit next to each other, with 3" of spacer between...seems like a lot of stainless, no? My gut wants to panel, but it will be significantly more costly because my cabs are partial overlay and will require some sort of backing behind the door panel. Not sure what that means yet $$ wise, but sounds like a lot to me.
Anyone with pics of stainless fridge and d/w next to each other?
Here's a pic (sorry so big) of the space in question (filled with recycling at the moment...):
