Thought I'd stop by and get your opinions on something... Planning a kitchen remodel for the spring (knock on wood).... I could use some opinions on appliances.... This kitchen is being done on a small budget, so keep that in mind.
I'm re-using my oak cabinets, though i will be doing some reconfiguring and adding 2 cabinets to the kitchen (i found a store that sells my exact cabinets). They are like a honey oak color.
currently the appliances are bisque. Bisque looks great with the oak, but it's very niche... As part of my remodel i at least need a new stove and will be putting in a dishwasher. I could keep with bisque, but the options are small... it's slim pickins!
If i go with a different color, I'm going to wind up replacing all of the appliances... I'm not a giant fan of stainless steel, i feel like it looks too industrial and I have a very homey kitchen... I also don't think the silver looks that great with honey oak. I think black looks nice in the store, but when you put black appliances in an oak kitchen i feel like they look like black blobs next to the bright wood... I also think it makes the room look smaller, and I have a small enough kitchen as it is (10x13 feet, eat in kitchen) I am leaning towards white, as it's light in color like the wood is and i think it goes best.
I googled some pictures of other kitchens...

what do you guys think?
Regardless of the color, i'm looking at a convection range w/ 5 burners on top (probably Samsung), with the matching microwave and dishwasher. The fridge I like best is whirlpool.
