Colour white?

Postby Stonehouse on Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:09 pm

Hello,

I'm considering a new AGA and am trying to decide on colour. What is white like? Is it more like ivory or is it 'appliance white' ?

I would appreciate real-life pictures if anyone here has some.

Very much like appliance white !
Commercial manager at Aga once said to me to avoid white as crazing might be more evident . Never really seen it as a problem

OK thanks. Appliance white is not what I want.

How about Pewter?

To go from white to pewter is a bit extreme

I believe that pewter is the worst colour for showing muck , so if you are not prepared to be fussy then I wouldnt

Yes, you're right but I wanted a "neutral" colour so it'll be compatible with any kitchen room colour.

Thanks for the heads up.

Any colour recommendations? Which colours are easy to keep clean?

They’re all easy to keep clean, if you keep them clean. If they are left for days of not being cleaned the muck gradually gets baked on and becomes progressively more difficult to remove.

Used to be said that green goes with any colour Every flower has green leaves .
This has more than a grain of truth !

As oilman says there is no substitute for timely wiping.
But I have to own up to green being pretty tolerant :o

I agree with you. I like dark green but apparently this colour has been discontinued. :(

Green leaves? On a poinsettia? I’d want my money back.

Mine is british racing green. It does look fabulous but I am struggling to find new kitchen cabinets that would go with it other than cream or natural wood.

Mine appears to have rarely been cleaned when I inherited it. The top plate had layers and layers of muck but the green front looked spotless even though it was dirty.
