RE: Mechanical troubles/ frig color

I like the look of stainless, too, but not for my kitchen. It is in the
center of the house, no windows, so I've painted the kitchen a bright,
cool white (added just a touch of blue to the white paint) and the
blueish wallpaper is light reflective. My appliances are white.

When I bought the house, the owners who had built the house had had the
kitchen cabinets custommade. They allowed only 26 inches for the space
for the stove. ???? Since a standard 30 inch stove wouldn't fit, they
put a dinky apartment-size stove in its place - not quite big enough to
fill the space. What WERE they thinking. When I bought my stove I had to
have a carpenter come in and cut down the cabinet next to it to make
room. Very strange.
