Decor QA: Kitchen Appliance Panels?

Q.

The Nest Q&A

We can’t afford new kitchen appliances, but is it possible to replace the fronts of the ones we have?

A.

Yes. The main company in the field is Frigo, which offesr custom replacement panels for your refrigerator, dishwasher, and trash compactor. The panels come in various colors and materials, which include metallics, acrylic glossy colors, stainless steel, black chalkboard material, as well as wood panel overlays (so your fridge could have the same beveled wood as your cabinets). The items must be custom, which adds to the cost. Panels for a dishwasher may be as low as $99 but run as high as the price of a brand-new dishwasher, so price everything out, including installation costs, before you pull the trigger.
