Appliances and Toilets

We picked up the appliances and also bought the toilets last week.  I wanted two ovens since I love to bake.  In order to get the size ovens I wanted we went with electric.  I opted for a five burner gas cooktop though.  We chose a smaller refrigerator in the kitchen and will put our big two door one in the pantry.  The smaller refrigerator gave me a bit more counter space.

Even though stainless steel appliances are the "it" thing, I had no interest in them.  I kept hearing how hard they were to clean.  Plus the color would not have worked with out color scheme.  We both agreed on black.

For the toilets we went with the higher ones, and W wanted a longer seat.  Other than the sides being straight and enclosed rather than open, they are pretty standard.


  1. I had to replace my dishwasher in July and ended up with stainless steel because it was cheaper. With a price match, the stainless was almost $200 less for the same dishwasher! I would have preferred black but not for that much money.

  2. I agree with you on the stainless steel appliances. I don't want to spend all my time trying to keep them looking good, but prefer easy care. All the appliances in my new home are white but I am just happy that they all match! For too many years I had to live with a mix of finishes. Other than white, I have lived with some that were harvest gold, avocado and beige, so you know what eras they came from.
