Thank you all so much for your input on stainless steel appliances. You helped more than you know!
I was also able to find a kitchen that has virtually the same colors (cream cupboards, beige countertops, the same green we’re using on the walls in an adjacent room) and stainless steel appliances, and I liked how they looked.
Unfortunately, the space for the fridge is very small, and we are limited as to what will fit there. I have found two stainless steel fridges that I think will fit the space (this or this), but I can’t tell if either of them is brushed stainless (the only option I’m willing to deal with if we do stainless, since I can’t abide the thought of the constant. fingerprint. wiping.). Would they say “brushed” next to finish if they were? Both of them say “smooth.”
