Is the end near for stainless steel appliances?

Major appliance manufacturers are starting to introduce new finishes in their product line. GE is now offering appliances in a Slate finish – a warm low gloss metallic grey – which is a big contrast to Whirlpools’ Ice Collection finishes in high-gloss black or white.

These new alternatives are emerging as a way to combat the dampening appliance sales that came on the heels of the housing marketing slump. While many are still doubtful that Stainless Steel appliances can be upstaged in popularity, others are saying that the time for change has come.
