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.

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

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

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

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.

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

This deli drawer slides left and right beneath the shelf to help make room for tall items below.

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.

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

The GDE21EMKES offers accurate, consistent temperatures at the default 37-degree setting.

Things look good when you dial all the way down to the minimum 34-degree setting, too.
