Grey Painted Refrigerator sides

Posted by rosewest (My Page) on

Our refrigerator will be on an end (not between cabinets) so one side will be entirely visible and exposed. We want stainless steel, but we hate the grey painted sides that are on most SS refrigerators. Appliance salesman says Electrolux is the only one that makes stainless steel sides. Are you aware of any other manufacturers or models that have stainless steel sides? Recommendations?

Electrolux SxS EW23CS70IS

Dacor Renaissance FD EF36IWFSS

GE Monogram FD ZFG21HZSS

Liebherr FD CS2062

KitchenAid used to offer SxS with optional SS cabinet panels. Don't see on website if they still do offer. Maybe ask a dealer?

RE: Grey Painted Refrigerator sides

While there are plenty of stainless wrap refrigerators available for around a 1K upcharge, the better solution would be to use that money to panel in the sides of the fridge in cabinetry and use a deeper cabinet over it. That's a permanent solution to the actual problem and once done the money will not need to be spent again. If you choose the stainless wrap, in 5-10 years time, you'll be spending that extra money again to replace the fridge.
