2013 Top Kitchen Trends: Accessorizing Appliances with Color

They're back and in a big way! Appliances in colored finishes are making their way back into fashionable kitchens everywhere.

We know style is significant when it comes to the most important room in the house, the kitchen. But, as we all know, some trends come and go, but for the most part, your appliances will stay the same. So why not go for the look you've always wanted? Did you know consumers have 24 color options when choosing their Viking appliances? Most recently, they added Cinnamon, Dijon, Kettle Black and Wasabi to their palette of color options. 

Our friends at Viking had this to say about the wide range of colors available for their appliances. "The addition of these finishes will give consumers, architects and designers more options to coordinate with personal tastes," said Brent Bailey, Director – Industrial Design, Viking Range Corporation. He continues, "These new colors reflect in-depth research into color trends for the foreseeable future, while also paying homage to our culinary heritage." The existing Viking color finishes available for appliances are: Stainless Steel, Black, White, Graphite Gray, Stone Gray, Taupe, Biscuit, Cotton White, Sage, Mint Julep, Sea Glass, Iridescent Blue, Viking Blue, Cobalt Blue, Lemonade, Racing Red, Apple Red, Burgundy, Plum, and Chocolate. Now consumers have 24 color options when choosing their Viking appliances.

An Expert Opinion on Appliances of Color

Home-Tech relies upon our dear friend and ASID accredited designer, Keffie Lancaster of Lancaster Interior Design to provide her expert opinion on this re-emerging trend. " Personally, I really like the Bamboo colored finish as it is fresh and reminds be a spa.  My clients seem to really like the Kettle Black, as well as the Stone Gray. The sleekness of these finishes offer a great deal of variety for placement in traditional and contemporary designs. The variety of the finishes allows for the ultimate in kitchen 

Keffie also discussed Viking D3's knob and handle options for the appliances in this line. "The Viking D3 line is not only amazing but fun too! The fact that you can have custom colored handles is a great design element that has been overlooked for years by the appliance industry.  I love the natural wood finishes which help the integration of contemporary designed appliances to juxtapose with traditional kitchen cabinets.  The possibilities are endless!  You can pop the wall color, the backsplash glass tile color or your floor color....whatever makes you happy....and let's face it! Shouldn't you be happy in the kitchen?"
