appliances, stainless or white?
We are having issues with our stove, it's a white flat top slide in. All other appliances are also white. However since we will be replacing it we are considering switching over to stainless. Our dishwasher is the only appliance we love, and we can get a stainless replacement front panel for only $75, so that will save money and having to reinstall.
I know stainless is considered an upgrade, but I have also heard negatives, it marks very easily (fingerprints etc) and to get new, nice stainless range (esp a slide in) and nice fridge will cost a lot more than just getting a new white slide in range. But, if I am spending over $1000 on a stove, I somehow think it doesn't make sense to buy white.
Our kitchen was renovated 2 yrs ago, cabinets are med reddish wood with pewter modern style handles and counter is a black/brown granite, so part of me thinks we "should" have stainless to go with higher end look of ktichen, and resale (not that we are planning, but still a consideration).
With 3 teenagers in the house, I wonder if the "upgrade" is worth it ???
