I sort of can’t believe these are my #1 pick, but after a lot of thinking and debating, I truly think that stainless steel appliances are the most timeless, objectively-stunning home design trend to come out of the 2000s. They look good in any kitchen, no matter what finishes you’re working with, and they offer a touch of luxury even if you’re not trying to spend a small fortune on your kitchen.
Here’s my ultimate tip here: Just invest in a really good stainless steel cleaner; this one is my fave. Don’t try to use that multi-purpose cleaning spray on stainless steel. It’ll look streaky and bad, and I promise that stainless steel-specific cleaner you bought will last a whole lot longer than you’d think.
