It’s A ‘50s Flashback: Get Ready For Boldly Colored Appliances

Written by Posted On Thursday, 04 June 2020 05:00

If you wanted to be in high style in the 1950s, you had to have avocado green or harvest gold appliances. We’ve come a long way since then, and, for the last several years, it’s been all about stainless steel. 

But, you know what they say: If you hang on to something long enough, it’ll come back into style. And here comes KitchenAid’s new ranges to prove that adage right. 

This time around, it’s “Avocado Cream” and “Yellow Pepper,” but you get the idea. 

Introduced at the end of May in a news release, the “color-forward Commercial-Style Range Collection” incudes nine colors in total; Other options are: Imperial Black, Ink Blue, Milkshake, Misty Blue, Passion Red, and Scorched Orange, in addition to Stainless Steel.

“The colors were carefully selected by the same color and design experts behind the brand’s iconic Stand Mixers and other countertop appliances,” they said. “From muted blues and classic undertones to fruity brights and soft pastels, the new KitchenAid® Commercial-Style Ranges can make any home feel unique and expressive.”

If you’re in the throes of revamping your kitchen or looking for a reason to do so, here’s something to get excited about: “A more colorful kitchen can inspire you and greatly lift your mood—in a room where you cook for and entertain friends and family, having a space that causes inspiration and motivation is of the utmost importance,” said Twenty 5 Design.

That can be accomplished with a rich paint color on the walls (and if you’re looking for the best color for your kitchen, check out these tips from HGTV) or a boldy patterned backsplash. But in a world where it seems like every kitchen is white on white on white, a return to color and excitement in a creativw way is most welcome. 

“White and gray may be holding steady as the most popular colors for kitchens, but I’m noticing a definite uptick in interest in adding touches of more vibrant hues into the mix,” said BlueStar. “One way homeowners are seeking to introduce color is through appliances in unexpected shades, such as magenta, lime green and coral. Of course, colorful appliances have been around a long time, almost as long as appliances have been available for purchase by homeowners. But the vast array of colors now available is unlike before, when a limited palette would move in and then out of fashion.
