It's no secret, kitchens sell homes; and whether you're in the market to buy a new home or simply update your kitchen, you should know what appliance finishes go best with kitchen cabinets and other furniture or decor items.

If you are remodeling your kitchen, consider luxury kitchen appliance brands. Initially these products may cost more than others, however, the quality and longevity of these appliances make your investment worth it and provides increased peace of mind in the years to come.

Characteristics of Luxury Modern Kitchens

One of the first things you may notice about luxury modern kitchens is their sleek design. You'll find integrated or built-in refrigerators that sit flush with cabinetry, slide-in ranges that tuck away in your kitchen layout or matching wall ovens and cooktops that emphasize sophistication along with top performance.

As you notice how well each appliance seamlessly fits into the kitchen you will also probably take note that these are luxury appliance brands; Dacor, GE Monogram, Miele and Bertazzoni to name a few. Built with quality, precision, and charm these kitchen appliances stand out from the pack.

Along with high-end appliances, you'll also find luxury finishes in countertops; like marble or granite, beautiful light fixtures, high-quality flooring and most recently home automation systems, including smart appliances.

Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless Steel has been the most popular appliance finish for a few decades, and with good reason. This finish is very versatile and can match both traditional and contemporary designs, including various kitchen cabinets and countertops.

Brown & Stainless Steel

Warm and earthy, brown kitchen cabinets or wooden cabinetry provides a distinct contrast to stainless steel appliances. There are a variety of brown hues; for a more cozy kitchen choose darker brown, and when looking to have a brighter open feel lighter brown cabinetry and countertops suffice.

Gray & Stainless Steel

Pictured above, you see stainless steel appliances paired with gray. This combination creates a uniformed look that's modern and simple. Appealing to minimalists, stainless steel and gray cabinets offer a neutral kitchen design without anything, in particular, taking center stage.

White & Stainless Steel

Continuing in the vein of modern and sleek, white cabinets with stainless steel appliances provides an elegant appeal in the kitchen. The stainless finish stands out next to the white cabinetry. The color white makes the kitchen feel more open and spacious as well.

Vibrant Colors & Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel appliances look good with both warm and cool colors which is why they can also complement colored kitchens. Create a fun, eccentric kitchen with lively colors complemented by a stainless steel finish.

Black Stainless Steel Appliances

A warmer alternative to the industrial stainless steel, black stainless steel appliances are trendy and offer modern charm in the kitchen. The shiny exterior gives them a striking appeal, yet they are more low maintenance, naturally resisting fingerprints and smudges. Sleek and sophisticated, it's best to pair black stainless steel appliances with either dark cabinetry or light cabinetry and nothing in between.

Dark and bold, black appliances have been around for some time but continue to be a staple in kitchen design when paired with the right furniture. Luxury modern kitchens are often dark, and black appliances fit in perfectly, just like in this suite of Dacor appliances. Mixed with dark cabinetry and a light countertop, this streamlined kitchen embodies sophistication and class. Of course, you can always create the classic black and white kitchen with these appliances as well.

White Appliances

Proceed with caution. White appliances were the original color of appliances when invented and gained popularity again in the 80s, so they can easily look dated. This classic finish is timeless when paired with cabinetry and countertops that give it a fresh look like in the pictured kitchen. For a luxury modern kitchen design consider an all-white kitchen, boasting a host of elegance and grace. Remember to choose sleek fixtures to achieve the luxurious look, and for added warmth brass knobs and handles.

Panel Ready Appliances

Renowned luxury kitchens often possess panel ready appliances, giving a custom design. These built-in appliances are made with the same finish as cabinetry to create a seamless look. Common panel ready appliances include refrigerators, range hoods, dishwashers, trash compactors, and beverage centers. This design is also great for smaller kitchens as the unified look creates a more spacious appearance.

Colored Appliances

Not for everyone, colored appliances offer a unique style to the kitchen. One colored appliance is all you need to make a statement and an instant focal point. Pair it with stainless steel or other complementary appliances that permit it to maintain center stage. Colored appliances are for very modern kitchens or retro shabby chic styles. The picture above showcases a retro chic look with a mixture of textures and appliance finishes.

Luxury modern kitchens come in a variety of looks but they all possess luxury appliances, a streamlined design, and high-end finishes to create a stylish, functional kitchen. Remodel, update, or build your dream kitchen with quality appliances.
