Be Cool with Big Chill Appliances

There is a fresh new concept on the scene when it comes to kitchen appliances. For years the challenge has been to make them go away, visually, that is.  Integrating your refrigerator and dishwasher using matching cabinet panels can be the perfect solution in some situations but let’s take another look, shall we?

Retro Series by Big Chill

What if you crave something different, you have yen for retro design and you LOVE color?  If this is you, Big Chill has you covered.  This Colorado based appliance maker was founded in 2001 by  Orion Creamer and Thom Vernon, two guys looking for vintage style with modern functionality.

In the early days of the company Thom and Orion studied vintage styling from the 50s, particularly  automotive detailing as well as the materials that were used. Their wish was to replicate the quality of products from this bygone era and blend it  with the latest technology.  I am impressed with the wide variety of appliances offered by Big Chill!  Think the 48″ pro range, induction cooking, large capacities as well as compact counter top microwaves.

This dishwasher is from the Big Chill Pro Line which features more contemporary detailing.

Also, if you’re not a fifties fan they have two other lines, Classic with 1920s detailing and Pro offering the same bold color selection in twenty first century design.  Speaking of color, if none of their many options is just right for you, custom colors are available too.  You can find dealers throughout the US but if they’re not in your neck of the woods you can purchase on line with free shipping in the month of August. For much more info check out their website and blog.

PS. I have no affiliation with Big Chill.  This just came across my radar and I had to share!
