Sick of stainless steel? Consider the lineup of slate-finished refrigerators from GE. Sort of a matte finish, slate isn't nearly as shiny as stainless steel, and it makes for subtle, stylish designs that blend in well with most decor.

Click through to take a look at the GE GDE21EMKES, a bottom freezer fridge that takes full advantage of what slate has to offer.

Slate style

Apart from looking a bit classier than white or black, slate appliances are great for repelling fingerprints.

Stainless steel accents

You'll still find stainless steel accents, though, like the fridge and freezer handles.

Open up

Inside, the fridge offers more than 20 cubic feet of total storage space.

Controls

You'll find your controls up on the top of the inner frame, which means that you need to open the doors to access them.

In-door shelves

There's a good amount of room in those in-door shelves, and you get plenty of spots to move them around.

Crisper bins

You also get a pair of crisper bins down at the bottom of the fridge. If you typically use these a lot, then a bottom freezer might be right up your alley, since they're up at waist level as opposed to sitting down at your ankles.

In the freezer

The freezer hosts a built-in icemaker that dishes out plenty of ice.
