Cooker Colours and Styles
Unlike some white goods, cookers come in a wide range of colours and styles. From cheerful to metallic, gently curved to angular, there is a cooker style perfect for your home.
Cookers come in a surprising range of colours.
Basic models tend to be white, but you can find other colours at the lower end of the price range too. Black, grey and silver colours tend to be very popular as they add a modern look to a kitchen and often match other kitchen appliances.
Metallic finishes such as stainless steel are readily available, with light and dark shades or brushed effects that make the appliance really eye catching. Stainless steel gives a professional, cheffy look and is extremely practical – especially if you go for a fingerprint free version.
Less common colours include reds and creams. These can have a metallic finish or gloss, and help add a dash of colour and personality to your home.
More unusual colours, such as pastel blues, greens and yellows are available, but often on more expensive models. Brightly coloured models tend to be range cookers as these are true statement pieces.
You will often find two-tone appliances as well, which offer accents around the door, hob or handles.
A Range of Styles
There are even more options when it comes to the styling of your cooker.
A lot will depend on the type you go for – double or single oven, range or conventional. It can even depend on the fuel type.
Cookers featuring a ceramic hob have a sleek, minimalist style that is easy to wipe down and looks stunning. Gas hobs usually have enamel or cast iron pan supports, giving a more traditional look.
A lot of cooker styling comes down to subtle details, such as the shape of a handle or knob, or the outline of the door window. These small, aesthetic touches really define the look of the appliance, so pick something that matches the theme of your kitchen.
If you have a rustic, welcoming kitchen, a range-style cooker will act as the beating heart of the room, adding a homely feel. Modern apartment? Then perhaps a sharp, angular cooker with ceramic hob is for you.
With so much choice for styles and colours, you’re bound to find what you’re after. View the appliance in store or take a good look at any images online before purchasing, so you know exactly what your new cooker looks like.
