Ok if you renember i am having my counter tops done in the new formica thats looks like granite.Well they have done the tops & i love them butttttttttt all my appaliance are white except my stove top is in my island it is a black/gray color
that has a rim around it that was white & the glass cutting bord has a metal rim around it all both is mounted in the island.Well over the 12 yrs i had scrap some of the white off the stove rim from cleaning it so i didn't wont that with my new tops so i sent it out to be painted alone with the glass block rim.Well i thought it would look real good black sa the tops have black in them.Well when they put the stove & all back in i look & said omg all my applainces are white why did i do them black.I was sick after i had spent all that money.So here are some pic tell me what you think pleaseeeeeeee.
Here are a close uo of the stove & glass block,

I think they are beautiful and honestly I don't see a problem at all. Wait a few days and get use to them. It's gonna b ok!
Thanks so much
I dont think it looks bad.I love your new counter tops and the design of them.They are perfect.I'm drooling over your new kitchen.
I believe several board memembers here have sprayed painted there frigs.Just pull it out,put it in an open area outside and spray that baby black.I think SonnyDayz did hers.You dont even have to get the special appliance paint either,Krylon paint will work wonders.Now the stove and microwave will be an issue about painting.
I think the 'newness' is shocking no matter what you choose.
I think jackierenette is right. The shock is that 'you are not done' when you thought this last project would do it all.
What you have done so far looks good! Just don't quit now.

I think the stove top and glass cutting board would have had too much contrast with your new countertop had you bought them in white. So black was the way to go.
Looks wonderful to me. : )
I agree w/ the others especially the shock of the newness. I also feel that white and black can work harmoniously if they are scattered around the room in equal proportions. Celebrate your new kitchen and enjoy it in good health for years to come.
I love your new countertop. We are in the process of re-doing our kitchen also. I had looked at granite but just can't justify the cost at this time. I picked up a brochure on laminate counters at HD, do you mind saying what your pattern is? Our cabinets are the 70's oak which I can't make myself paint and we are going with stainless appliances since we've had white for almost 20 years. The colors in your pattern look like they would work well with the cabinets and new appliances.
djklm i will call monday & ask the name of it but it is a new laminate that look like granit.
I wounted granit but i has a corner cabinet that sit down my counter top & they would have had to take the cabinets down & i didn't wont that so i went to a cabinet shop that had been around a long time & the lady said that in 2 weeks they were putting this on the market & she already had some samples so i was the 1st.I know Lowes has it in now.Will let you know i know it was something Golden.I will post the web site so you can ck it out.
I think they look great! I like the black cook top with the new countertops.
The whole kitchen looks beautiful!

Thanks Jeanette! The pamphlet I have from Home Depot has 3 different grades of the laminate-assuming the highest grade is the most expensive.
djklm the there is only 1 grade of this.I also went with the OG EDGE You can get 2 edges The bull nose or the OG edge. i like the grove in the OG Edge.I do know it is something you can't do your self.You have to have a cabinet shop do it.I paid $1,587.00 for all of mine & here is a pic of the way it look befor.So maybe you can tell about how much i had to have
I think the kitchen looks great. The black on the island looks very good, white would be just too much. I would not change color of the other appliances. They look fine the way they are. I have thought that I would use laminate
if I planned to redo a kitchen. There are many companies now that make it. Years ago it was just FORMICA.
DO NOT FRET! Your kitchen looks great!!
I have those same tops and edge and I love them. I think the black looks just fine.
I am what I am because He is I AM!!!
The black looks fine with the counters. Love the long expanse of counters that you have in your kitchen.
How long is the whole length of counter on the sink side please?

I agree...it looks great!! If you had not have said anything and I was just looking at the pictures, I would not have really noticed the difference.
Enjoy your pretty kitchen!! You did good!!
Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.
Geez, girl you have a huge kitchen! I wish I had all that counterspace! The new Formica has white in it too from what I can see, it goes great with your appliances.

I think it looks good, I wouldn't paint the refrigerator black as suggested by someone since your kitchen is pretty dark already. I think you're going to end up being very happy it's not white and showing up every little mark or dirt. Good mistake!!!
