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.
