10. Appliance panels. There was quite a lot of buzz around BlueStar’s new BlueStar by Design feature for ranges and refrigerators. Basically, you can send any high-resolution image, text or art to BlueStar and the company will turn it into a pattern on the appliance paneling. Wallpaper, art, wood textures, kids’ drawings, your favorite quilt — anything can be converted into paneling in about eight to 10 weeks.

Here, patterned tiles inspired the range paneling.

Wallpaper pattern inspired the artistic BlueStar fridge panels shown here. You can swap out the range panels, but the fridge panels are permanent. The company assumes the user has copyright approval of the image sent in. The option will be available in late spring.
