Being not quite sure about the leap forward, we found a nice compromise. We installed slate appliances in our Cheshire kitchen remodel that looks fabulous! The color blended nicely with the French Cream walls, white cabinets and multi-colored backsplash tiles.

We decided not to save the pink tiles in the bathroom of the Cheshire remodel or any other parts of the bathroom. This model also worked for a Hamden ranch, where we decided against saving the bluish-green fixtures and tiles during the Hamden bathroom remodel for fear that the general public might not be ready for the change yet.

There are times when the traditional look will serve best. We find that our demographic makes major remodels every 10-12 years. Your budget will dictate how you make that leap forward into the realm of Trendy vs. Traditional.

White appliances are also re-entering the limelight, but we find that most of our clients still lean toward stainless rather than white.

That is the reason we stayed with the tried-and-true:  white and/or cream fixtures in our Cheshire bathroom remodel and and then go ‘color’ when opportunity permits.
