  • Check with your landlord to make sure you can change the appliances and then take them with you when you leave. I waited to buy appliances till I bought a home because apartments usually have them already. Good luck!

  • Are you talking about small appliances?  Apartments come with a frigerator stove/oven and diswasher.

    Decide on your color/s and go shopping for stuff.  I will say mix it up.

  • I would go with black and stainless appliances and then use splashes of red with dish towels, oven mitts, clock, and some kind of cabinet decor (if cabinetry does not go all the way to the ceiling and room allows for decorative touches up high). Maybe some red candles on Mercury glass candle holders.

  • I would do larger things stainless steel like microwaves etc, and smaller appliances as red accents, like the kettle and the toaster.

  • Large appliances should be stainless steel or black.. (Fridge, dishwasher, oven)
    Small appliancesaccent piees red. (Toaster coffee maker, papertowel holder).
    Cabinets should be white with red or black trim.

    Use red for towels and rugs etc.
