NO MORE STAINLESS STEEL
Stainless steel appliances, another kitchen mainstay, are also less popular these days. While black stainless is still somewhat trendy, more people are opting to go one of two ways: either making their appliances a colorful focal point or hiding them completely.
“A lot of people are tired of looking at fridges — either stainless steel or other materials — so they are matching refrigerator paneling with the rest of the kitchen,” New York real estate salesperson Alexander Boriskin says.
Buyers who want their appliances to stand out instead of blend in are gravitating toward colorful ranges, or even glass-front refrigerators.
