I think the first reaction is that they have a professional look over the white or black. And I agree they do look sleek and more expensive. However I do advise clients to look deeper than skin deep. With all the information available on the web, do your research. As always there are different levels of appliances, good, better, best. You must decide which level is right for you.
So going back to why I started this conversation. If your buying a new home or an older home and they have stainless appliances, don't judge a book by it's cover. Make sure they are appliances that match the quality of the purchase price of the home. Knowing what your are looking at will help get the best deal on that big purchase.
I wish you luck on your adventure of buying, remodeling, or constructing a new home.
