Making do, aesthetic question
We are buying a house that has the original 1920s cabinets still--they are painted white. No remodeling the kitchen for a while as our cash has to go to more urgent repairs (heat, leaking master bath, etc). But it has no functioning appliances. The only appliance in the kitchen is a 1960s electric range with oven on top as well as on bottom and the bottom oven is not working. Rather than sink money into fixing that, we have decided to replace it.
I have been researching and was seriously considering getting one of the under $2000 induction ranges. I was bummed to realize they all come only in stainless, at least as far as I can tell. But then I realized that it seems they also all come with BLACK sides.
The range is on the end of a cabinet run with no wall so the side is completely exposed. The black side will look pretty darn bad, IMO. I was willing to go with my less preferred finish as function generally trumps form for me. But this, well, I am not sure I can deal with that bad of form.
Anyone got any brilliant thoughts? Do I give up on inuction? (The Viking that comes in colors and runs over 7k is way too much money,.)
