brakur_slate_appliancesThe popularity of stainless steel appliances has remained a trend for the past ten years.  While other finishes have come along it hasn’t been until recently that slate appliances appear to be changing that trend.

So what is it that appeals to so many consumers over stainless steel?  It originally started when charcoal and gray become a popular kitchen trend color in recent years.  Manufacturers decided to capitalize on that. It is contemporary and goes well with many of today’s transitional kitchens.  Its warm dark tone easily blends in with its surroundings. Another positive aspect is it naturally resistant to fingerprints, smudges and dirt.  Compared to stainless steel it is a lot lower maintenance.

While slate is still fairly new, only time will tell if becomes a fad or stays a trend.  If you are considering slate appliances it is recommended that you replace all of your appliances.  It might be hard to match the finish later should they go out of style.  If you are interested in learning more about who offers slate appliances and the pros and cons you can read the full article here.
