How to change color of stove and other appliances in kitchen?

We are moving to a new house and taking our 3 year old white refrigerator and my many other white small appliances with us. (All are 3 years old or less). Problem is that the place we are moving to has a built in stove, dishwasher, and microwave that are black and 3 years old as well. Any suggestions? Can you reface all of these appliances or am I going to have to live with a mismatched kitchen for quite a few years?

I have painted a dishwasher to match my other appliances. I masked off the areas that I didn’t want to get paint on and used cardboard on the cabinets (taped up). I used a can of Krylon and it looked great and lasted. Now Krylon makes appliance paint. I used it on something…forgot what now. I don’t know about painting a stove. It may be easier to paint the fridge black. But it you can’t paint and have to use black and white, it won’t look bad at all. Accent it with reds and yellows. It will distract from the colors and don’t fret too much. I lived with Coppertone for years and then at the next house I had a white fridge, a harvest gold dishwasher and a green stove….YUK

Replaced the stove (it was just a drop-in) Bought one very cheap from the classifieds. Painted the dishwasher.

Now I am in another house and have matching appliances…..but I have a pink bathtub and tile…oh well, just learn to work with it….
Good Luck in the new house.

    There has to be specity paint you can buy at Home Depot. Go ask them. Don’t use any old paint though. That might burn when the appliances are on.

    I don’t however think black and white appliances will be mismatched. Black and White go together just fine.

    I would not bother to paint them.

    You can buy appliance paint at your hardware store or have them professionally done by someone.

    Any hand painted appliances I have ever seen looked, well crappy.
    Professional re-glazing would cost $$$
    Enjoy your new home, take your time and enjoy your 3 year old white appliances.

    They now make a laminate sort of thing to apply to your appliances. Check with you manufacturer to see what is needed. Hope this helps. http://www.remodelormove.com/content/article/save_money_reface_your_appliances.cfm

    You can buy magnetic panels for your fridge or vice versa. I don’t know what other appliances you may have, but if they’re small countertop appliances, you’re fine with leaving them white. Here’s a link you can click on to see if you can find something you like.
