Slate – an update on stainless steel


GE’s Newest Premium Appliance Finish – Slate

GE’s exclusive Slate finish exudes refinement and elegance for a look unlike anything on the market today. Inspired by the rich texture of stone, it provides a warm, inviting alternative to stainless steel.

Slate not only offers an option that’s elegant and modern, it also maintains its great appearance. The dark matte finish naturally hides fingerprints, smudges and dirt. It’s also a breeze to clean using a clean cloth and a mild household detergent.

Whether you are looking to replace a single appliance or remodeling your entire kitchen, GE’s Slate appliances are designed to blend with other stainless steel, black or white appliances, or make a statement by themselves.

The Benefits of Slate include:

  • Resists fingerprints
  • Easily complements other appliances
  • Attractive color looks unique and stylish
  • Easy to clean and keep looking great
  • Finished with bold, brushed metal touch points
  • Holds magnets

A Palette Pleaser

Pair a Slate finish with virtually anything. From sleek granites and composites to organic glass and wood, Slate perfectly harmonizes with today’s materials and colors. With such a broad palette of complementary finishes, Slate can appeal to every taste.


Get organized!

Taking time to organize your home not only reduces stress, but also increases leisure time and can even save money. Here are some of our favourite tips.

Kitchen counter clutter buster

Take the clutter off the counter with an ingenious installation of a mailbox on the side of the kitchen island.  It’s a great place to keep menus, notepads, or incoming mail.

Make your pantry productive with a Sharpie & save money

Dated cans

An organized pantry makes meal planning a snap, and labeling goods with the expiry date ensures that you don’t throw hard earned money in the


garbage by not using food by the sell-by date.  Sure, there are loads of fancy labels and containers that will make the pantry look like a magazine shoot, but if you have a Sharpie you’re in business.

The easiest and cheapest way to organize the pantry is to use a Sharpie to write the Best By date on the front of each item where it can be seen at a glance, and put the items soonest to expire at the front of the shelf.  Arrange goods by type and category, with infrequently used items on the higher shelves.

When bringing new groceries home, have the Sharpie at hand and write the Best By date before putting anything away. It will add a few minutes to the process, but it will be well worth the effort..

Clear out and clean up

How much of your stuff is just taking up space because you can’t bear to throw it away? Sort it into 3 piles – Sell, Donate/Give Away, and Trash. Sell the items that you will never use, donate clothes to charity and old towels and blankets to an animal rescue, and throw out the ugly, damaged and useless.  Tip – Sell your unwanted things online or give them away on Freecycle.

Take it one small section at a time and you’ll soon be free of the clutter monster.




New Year, New Room

Bedroom refresh

For the New Year, resolve to make your bedroom a sanctuary that gives you space for renewal and contemplation. Did you realize that we spend about 1/3 of our lives in bed? A bedroom has one of the most important functions in a home, but is often overlooked when updating the decor.

It’s easy to refresh a bedroom, and January White Sales provide the perfect opportunity to update your bedroom with a new set of bed linens for a new outlook on the New Year.  A bed layered with quality sheets, pillows, quilts and duvet covers invites restful slumbers. And what better way to spend a lazy Saturday morning than having a “coffee and crossword puzzle moment” in bed?

We love it when the new colour of the year is announced. For 2014 Pantone has named Radiant Orchid. “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.
