Hi all! I am going to be registering for a kitchen aid mixer and can’t decide what color to choose. I’d love to see pictures of your own kitchenaids to help me/others decide what color to choose. I’m leaning toward these colors right now, matte milkshake, matte dried rose, white, matte white, birds of paradise, any of the pink shades, or candy apple red. Thank you! 😀

Your Kitchen Aid should last your lifetime so get white. It’ll match any kitchen you ever own. Last thing you want to do IMO is get a trendy color (think 70’s green) that won’t stand the test of time. Plus white will actually hide dust and stuff better than colors, you’ll be wiping that thing down constantly if it’s much darker.
Kitchen Aids are the best!

I second getting a timeless color! I really loved some of the blue shades, but I’m also pretty particular about things matching and I didn’t want to risk it clashing with a future color scheme I wanted.
If you don’t care about that though, then you do you! Here’s ours, it’s matte gray.

I got mine years ago- apple green- and have zero regrets. (Got it in my early 20s and am 35 currently.) When I was looking to buy my current home, I remember thinking “I wonder how my mixer would look in this kitchen?” I seriously love the thing. My husband just pulled it out to make some cookies for my daughter’s class and commented about how attached he has also become to the mixer. Maybe we are weirdos, but there’s just something about it. One of my friends has an orange one that she also adores. I would just go with whichever makes you happiest.

I wish, kitchen aids are so expensive where I live & I don’t have bench space.
When I was in Hawaii on my honeymoon, I wanted to bring a kitchenaid back. They’re so much cheaper in the States! Like half the price.

Mine needs to be cleaned, but I got a silver one about 9 years ago (long before I even met my husband).
ive thought about upgrading to copper though 😍

I got this one as a bridal shower gift
I registered and wanted a black/brown one to match my kitchen, but my mom surprised me with my favorite color. Yeah, I do wish it matched better, but I was just thankful someone bought it for me.
Even handier than using it for mixing/baking, I’m going to order the attachment that allows me to use it as a meat grinder b/c DH and I hunt and grind up our own deer meat, so it saves us money from buying a separate meat grinder since its so versatile!

I have literally no reason to buy one of these but I want one

I have a black one because I wanted it to match anything, but I actually wish I had a fun color!

I have a red one. I feel like a red Kitchenaid is so classic it’s basically a neutral. It always looks great and we’ve lived in 5 different places since we’ve had it. Currently in a white, green and blue kitchen still looking awesome 🙂

Mine is white and about 18 years old. Still works great. The new ones are pretty flashy. If you care about marching id go with a neutral. The key to having this mixer is to have it always on the counter so you’ll use it!

I have a cornflower blue one (this may have been re-named to “blue velvet”, but I’m not sure). I don’t really get the idea of getting a boring one so it “matches”, but maybe my kitchens have always been pretty neutral? Right now ours is grey/white/crystal so literally any colour would pop and look great. You can also paint them if you somehow ended up hating the colour over time.
That said, I more so cared about the functionality. I did NOT want a tilt head so I got a bowl lift type. I wanted a big enough motor for bread and larger batches of stuff (if it were small I’d just do by hand). I got a pro 600, it looks something like this:

Mine is silver, because I’m boring, but I looove Matte Milkshake.
I agree that you should choose something neutral, as you’re likely to have your mixer for a very long time. Unless you don’t care about matching or plan to use it as an accent piece.
