Here at Renah, the new GE Slate Refrigerator — in all its shapes and models — is on our radar. While the advancement in technologies and features of major in-home appliances continues to delight us all the time, we’re seeing an interesting trend toward slate finished refrigerators — and we really like it.
Yes please, bring on the GE slate refrigerator side by side, French doors and counter depth models. We’ll take them all.
We started wondering about the benefits of slate and low and behold, questioned asked and answered. GE was one of the first, if not the first to introduce slate finished refrigerators as a response to trends in open flooring designs found in modern day homes, where rooms are not segmented so much as they flow into one another often with no wall or partition. This can mean that appliances are the focal point from just about any vantage point – the living room, kitchen or family room.
Homeowners wanted something a little more refined, sophisticated and subdued than stainless steel and so slate finishes were born.
From GE: “Inspired by the rich texture and appearance of stone, Slate is a gray metallic finish that looks warm, inviting, and natural – its versatility extends beyond the kitchen.”
What’s more is that slate finishes are magnetic, holding all of the priceless finger painting art done by your little favorite people, but at the same time are also fingerprint proof so that you can spend more time with them and less time cleaning those stinkin’ adorable smudges.
So, if slate is slated for your future, GE makes about 50 different models all geared toward perfecting that kitchen design or remodel. If you need your Slate appliance serviced, please contact us and/or go here to see the complete list of brands we service.
