Range Report: Color is Hot

I’m back from KBIS Trade Show In Las Vegas where I visited three exhibition halls of both international and domestic brands showcasing their new and notable products. There was a lot of buzz around West Hall’s kitchen ranges and some design celebrities brought attention to the colorful ranges on display.

The Color On range was a big hit in the 1970s, I remember the avocado green and mustard yellow refrigerators and stoves of that decade, I even had one left over from that era in my rented apartment in college! Gone are the colors of that date. Over the last few decades we have seen mostly stainless steel, black and white ranges and ovens. Move well to neutrals, the colorful kitchen range is back and is a hot item in kitchen design.

The slide-in and free standing ranges in beautiful new shades owned the spotlight at the show and I found myself as impressed as everyone else. If you’re in the mood for color in your kitchen or want to bookmark these manufacturers for future reference, here’s a list of brands where you can choose from a variety of bright or subtle colors to create a focal point in your kitchen.
