does anyone regret buying SS appliances?
My DH and I are going back and forth about black vs SS appliances. We have darker brick flooring, want med. cherry cabs and possibly venetian gold or NVG granite (or in that color family). One north facing garden window over the sink. I'm leaning toward the SS to keep the room from looking too dark. DH wants black and his sister (interior decorator but doesn't live in our state) thinks we would regret SS due to scratches, dings and just the overall SS look of a refrigerator, DW, range and OTR MW. We do have teens, 2 of them boys and they are careless as can be. I also remember my appliance repair guy telling me several years ago that he wouldn't get SS for the same ding/scratch reasons since he has seen many with those problems.
Has SS improved any in the last few years in terms of hardiness?
