Black or Stainless in Kitchen

Hi Guys,

Would you replace the black appliances with stainless steel? I'm thinking having a black stove, microwave and refrigerator is too much. Thx!

Also - I am considering painting the walls a light gray to match the backsplash. Do you agree?

I think black looks pretty cool if you totally go for it. I think black below the chair rail and gray above would look good. My issue is with the brown tones in the floor and the lighting.

I think the stainless would look great/and gray for wall is a good choice.

I'd love to see the stainless and gray walls. I want to see the before and after.

The new Slate color gives you the richness of the black but it is lighter and not so stark.

Go stainless and grey on the walls.

Stainless, it is timeless. Another option is all stainless and then a colored range in red for pop.

I will definitely post the before and after. I am closing in January and decided to focus on the kitchen, living room, master bedroom and master bath since I will spend most of my time there (wooh - so overwhelming). My notes so far is to change the lighting. I love the recommendation that was given. My gut is telling to go stainless and the gray walls (I have to look at the slate color that was recommended). I welcome all feedback. This site rocks! Should I do the same color gray (still don't know what shade to do) above and below the chair rail moulding or do the same color?

I like the black appliances. I would like to see a soft gray with blue under tones on the walls.

Dont think the black appliances add anything since the kitchen isn't modern and the appliamces aren't either! I would definitely 100% go stainless and add some red! They also sell on the market a completely red oven, and not just the red knobs!
