Viking Microwaves Now Come in a Rainbow of Colors
With consumer trends pointing in the direction of wider and brighter color palettes in the kitchen, Viking Range Corporation is now offering its microwave and convection microwaves in the 14 color finishes available in its Professional Series product line.
Headquartered in Greenwood, Miss., Viking Range Corporation is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Supplier 100 of NAHB.
Viking says that it is the only manufacturer to offer such color options for its microwave oven line.
“By adding so many color options to our microwave line, Viking enables home owners to incorporate a microwave oven into their kitchen seamlessly, regardless of appliance color choice,” said Sue Bailey, the company’s manager of product development, major appliances.
Professional Series color choices include stainless steel, black, white, almond, biscuit, stone gray, graphite gray, burgundy, lemonade, mint julep, forest green, Viking blue, cobalt blue and eggplant. The Designer Series color choice is stainless steel.
From the design front, Nancy Kebschull, a member of the Color Marketing Group and visuals coordinator for Reico Kitchen & Bath, advises choosing three colors for a room: a dominant color for walls, floor covering and fabric background; a secondary color in fabrics and accessories; and an accent color that’s used sparingly.
Among the guidelines Kebschull offers designers:
- Limit the number of colors from two to four.
- Use colors in distinctly difference quantities.
- Repeat colors more than once in a room.
- Balance color in a room by repeating the colors throughout the space itself.
The latest design information from Viking is available from the manufacturer’s quarterly publication, “The Edge.”
