Silver washing machines are usually, but not always, made of stainless steel. Silver washing machines can match stainless steel appliances like refrigerators, ovens and dish washers. This has made them a popular choice in many homes, especially in those with contemporary or modern styles or with open floor plans where the washer can be seen from the kitchen or from other rooms. When you are shopping for a washing machine, however, it is important to carefully consider the price and features and to compare the price of silver washing machines to your other options.
Silver is more expensive
Silver is almost always going to be among the more expensive option as a colour choice for appliances. This is true because silver or stainless steel has become the popular trend in appliance choices. White appliances or black appliances tend to look more dated. Some also believe that white or black appliances can look plasticky or can become discoloured as they age, making them look unattractive. As a result of all of these considerations, when comparing the price of silver washing machines, you need to expect them to be a little bit more expensive. Whether the machine if made of stainless steel or not Whether the machine is actually made of stainless steel or whether it just looks like it because it has a silver paint colour will also make a difference. A real stainless steel washing machine will always cost more then one which has a silver look to it. Either option will usually cost more than the same black washing machine with the same features, just because of the colour premium.
Other features also affect the price of a silver washing machine and will dictate how the price compares to other machines. For example, steam washers like the LG Steam will be more expensive because they have the added feature of allowing you to clean with a steam cycle. This cycle is said to reduce odours and wrinkles and has made the LG Steam Washer a popular option. The LG steam washer, however, usually costs around $500 or more depending on the bells and whistles you choose- and this is for the washer only and not the dryer. The size The size of the washer, represented in cubic feet in most cases, is also going to play a role in determining the cost comparison of your silver washing machine. A larger machine, especially if it is also a steam machine, is going to cost significantly more than a smaller one.
