Ugly appliances are so commonplace that we sometimes find ourselves accepting them then trying to forget about the way they look. But why not do something about it by changing out the handles? There is a range of appliance handles available for purchase at Kitchen Cabinet Hardware.
We found a couple of stainless steel bar handles that we really liked, though they aren't cheap.
And a quick look at our own oven (a very standard Summit range) looks like handle replacement would be a simple job. This small project could have a huge impact on the appearance of the kitchen.
