When we bought our house 9 years ago, the refrigerator, range, microwave and dishwasher were all Amana and they were black in color. My wife wanted white appliances, so one by one, as each one would need replacing, we replaced it with a white one. What bugs me though, is they are not the same brand. I let her pick out the ones she wanted, and brand didn't matter to her. We now have all white appliances, but the refrigerator is a Kenmore, the range is a GE, the microwave is a Hotpoint, and the new dishwasher, which is arriving today is a Bosch. I dunno...it just bugs me. I think they should all be the same brand. I'll probably have a panic attack when we have to replace the washer and dryer! What say other TGP'ers?
