Colorful Appliances in 2017

Choose Stainless Steel Appliances or GO BOLD

Red Bertazzoni

We've been following and reporting on appliance colors for years. Here's one from 2015:

Appliance Colors Over a Lifetime

And now here's an update for 2017:

Modern major appliances trace back to the Post WWII era. In the 50's nearly all major appliances were white. Later pink and turquoise began to make their mark, and were popular throughout the 60s. In the 70's Harvest Gold, Avocado, and Coppertone were popular. They eventually morphed into Harvest Wheat, Fresh Avocado, and Coffee. Almond was added and became very popular through the 80's though appliance manufacturers tried to mix things up with 2 new colors that failed miserably – Silver and Sand.

Harvest-Gold

Harvest Gold Drop-In Range

Now, we're in the middle of a resurgence of color choices in appliances. BlueStar, a specialty cooking products manufacturer offers over 250 colors and finishes. Italian appliance manufacturer, Bertazzoni, also has a wide selection of appliance colors. Meanwhile, Viking Range Co. offers a smaller, manageable selection of colors.

To keep things in perspective, here are the results from a 2016 survey by Houzz:

“A whopping 75 percent of those surveyed were going with stainless for the new appliances in their updated kitchens. (White came in at 10 percent and black at 8 percent.)”

Most new appliance sales come from either new home sales or one off replacement sales. Buyers purchasing from production home builders are offered a very limited selection of popular colors. For individual appliance replacement sales, buyers will try to match the appliance color with their existing kitchen appliances.

We might be able to go with White, Black, or the popular Stainless Steel, including some smudge proof Stainless Steel options. GE offers a very interesting and competitively priced appliance finish, Slate. KitchenAid and now some other brands are offering a new appliance finish/color Black Stainless Steel. Mostly black in color, but with the grain and hue of stainless steel Black Stainless Steel is gaining steam. Samsung's Black Stainless Steel is somewhat shiney gray/black and others are more black with the stainless finish visible through the black..

The Big Three appliance manufacturers: Whirlpool, GE, and Frigidaire/Electrolux don't build appliances in Ferrari Red, or Pantone's color of the year for 2017 Greenery. But, if we only looked at the top 5-10% of appliance sales we'd likely find luxury brands that offer more variety in color selections.

Trends in Professional Style Appliances

Pro-Style Ranges in Standard Kitchens

Professional style ranges have been showing up in standard kitchens for several years now. Certainly, we’ve seen brands such as GE Café give a “pro” look to standard appliances with great success. But more than that, consumers are willing to jump ship when it comes to their standard range, opting for one of the high-end professional style brands for the added cooking power as well as the pro-look. Buyers seem to be not at all concerned with having matching appliances either by brand or style, and they don’t hesitate sticking a bulky pro-style range in with any overall kitchen style. In addition, they’re often unconcerned that the pro-style range will cost more than all of the rest of their standard appliances combined.

Builders, contractors, designers, and remodelers can be challenged with a non-standard depth, special ventilation needs, and other custom changes that might be required. Nevertheless, these pro-style non-standard ranges are in enough demand that the industry is adapting to buyers requests.

The good news is that trade professionals, can rely on Arizona Wholesale Supply to guide them through the maze of pro-range choices. Here are two examples of luxury brands that specialize in ranges with a professional look and features.

Thermador-Range

Thermador’s new Pro Harmony 30″ range above is touted as the only 5-burner 30″ Pro-Style range in the luxury category. This range is likely to cost $4000 – $5000 when it debuts later this year.

Italian manufacturer Bertazzoni below is making a mark with their 30″ Pro-Style range that retails for as low as $2599. That’s a very competitive price for a range in this category. Bertazzoni is also known for offering their ranges in a choice of brilliant colors in addition to the common stainless steel finish.

Bertazzoni-Range

Designers, builders, contractors, and remodelers wishing to explore opportunities in the pro-style range category are welcome to consult with the professionals at Arizona Wholesale Supply for more detailed information.

Bertazzoni Appliances at KBIS 2015

Up and Coming Italian Brand Wows at KBIS

New Products, New Features, Bright Colors

After more than a couple decades of attending appliance trade shows, I'm used to yawning my way through exhibits, hoping in vain to see something exciting, noteworthy, and different. However, this year's Design and Construction Week (KBIS/IBS) was a bit different. Several appliance manufacturers are out to make a statement.

Their statement is:

WE'RE SPECIAL! LOOK AT US!!

Bertazzoni was at KBIS 2015 in a big way. Their bold *colors make them hard to miss. The professional range lineup is available in 7 different colors including the Ferrari red below:

Don't want to jump out on a limb with a bold range color? If, like most appliance customers you're wedded to stainless steel, not to worry. The striking colors are options, and Bertazzoni offers a full selection of stainless steel ranges, cooktops, ovens, and more. Here are just a couple of the stand outs from Bertazzoni at KBIS 2015.

Warming drawer

How can a warming drawer be special? How about a warming drawer that closes like other high end kitchen cabinet drawers, with soft touch technology? Bertazzoni has it.

Induction ranges and cooktops

Bertazzoni just announced that they are launching their new induction range and cooktop line in the U.S. market. The selection features a Professional Series 30″ Induction Range (available in stainless steel as well as six colors), a Master Series 30″ Induction Range and two touch control Induction cooktops. Bertazzoni touts this as the largest selection of induction cooking appliances in North America.

Bertazzoni Cooktop

Of course, Bertazzoni showed their full line of cooktops including the award-winning (Best of Show KBIS 2012) segmented gas/griddle/induction cooktop. This innovative 36″ cooktop combines the power of gas heat, with an even-cooking electric griddle, and induction electric smoothtop cooking.

On hand to greet visitors and help answer questions about their products were members of the Bertazzoni family. The Bertazzoni brand is a six generation family-owned enterprise, based in Northern Italy.

*Bertazzoni colours are applied in a fully durable, double layer coating on stainless steel using the latest processes developed for the automobile industry. The finish is acid and temperature resistant to give you a long-lasting lustre, and bring a new dimension to the design and style to your kitchen.

Arizona Wholesale Supply is your Arizona source for Bertazzoni and other major appliances, floor coverings, and home products.

Appliance Ideas for a Unique Kitchen

Tip for a better kitchen – Be different!

Signature Appliances from Arizona Wholesale Supply

Author Dale Dauten once wrote, “Different isn’t always better, but better is always different.” Let’s think about how to apply that notion in a new kitchen from Arizona Wholesale Supply.

There are many reasons to make safe choices in your new kitchen. If you stick with tried and true ideas, you know that…well they’ve been tried and they’re truly going to work. In addition, you can feel comfortable that you won’t have a product, a design, or a color that will detract from the lasting value of your kitchen.

On the other hand, if you want your kitchen to stand out, by definition, you’ll have to do something different. Think about what could make the kitchen uniquely yours. It might only mean a splash of color, or it might be something dramatic.

Here are just a few appliance ideas that might give your new kitchen a “signature” and make it not only different, but better.

Bertazzoni Ferrari Red Range

Bertazzoni Range
New to the U.S. market, the Bertazzoni’s have been manufacturing cooking appliances for five generations in Northern Italy. This beautiful range will add the splash of color to your kitchen that will definitely command attention.

Wolf Built-In Coffee Maker

Wolf Coffee Maker
For entertaining or personal enjoyment a built-in coffee maker from Wolf is an elegant and desirable add-on that will create an inviting, hospitable gathering place in your home.

Jenn-Air Accolade Downdraft

Jenn-Air Accolade Downdraft

Jenn-Air’s stunning new Accolade downdraft vent elevates for use and descends when not being used, thus improving the sightlines obstructed by traditional overhead vent hoods.

Miele Brilliant White

Miele Brilliant White
Miele sets the standard for luxury and elegance, and the sleek new Brilliant White Plus appliances in flush European cabinetry define minimalistic modernism.

All of these great appliances are available today at Arizona Wholesale Supply. Contact your kitchen designer, and call or visit the appliance experts at Arizona Wholesale Supply today.
