Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless Steel Appliances

Pop culture is constantly changing. What is in today might be in tomorrow… it also might be thrown to the curb. One item that has had much success recently is stainless steel appliances. One reason that I am very aware of this trend is that fact that my wife has been dreaming over these appliances for over a year. The appliances that we currently own work great, but they are white.

White used to be the “in” color. Actually, come to think about it, it looks like history is repeating itself. The colors that used to be popular were colors like avocado green. Then white was the color to have. Somewhere in there, black became popular and now the trend is stainless steel. Some people from the beginning thought that the stainless steel looked like an industrial kitchen. That did not stop the pop culture movement to the stainless steel side of the court.

I had made the comment above that history is repeating itself. Very recently, I have seen colored appliances in the store. I am not sure if they are going to catch on or not. In my opinion, I don’t think that stainless steel appliances have been out long enough to be ousted by pop culture. That is the thing about pop culture, though.

In case you were wondering, I have a set of used stainless steel appliances in my garage waiting to be installed. My wife found them on Craigs List, which is actually another pop culture phenomenon. My wife and I drove 2 hours one way to pick up the stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. We need to sell our white appliances before we are going to install the new ones. I certainly hope that pop culture goes my way with appliances. If my wife wants to get the new version of avocado green ones in a year I am not going to be happy. But I do follow the saying, “Happy wife, happy life”. I will have to wait and see what the trend turns out to be!
