Fifty Shades of Grey has made the leap from page to screen, in all of its controversial glory. Is it cinema’s next great modern romance, or the problematic tale of an unhealthy relationship?

We’ll let you decide. After all, this isn’t a movie blog.  It is, however, an appliance blog.

So if your choice of film has left you wanting more, more, MORE, here are a few more shades of grey for your consideration:

Diamond Grey

While they say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, a decent appliance in diamond grey could also be a respected member of the social circle. Maybe in the second tier, though.

Back to basics. Sometimes you need a little vanilla to cleanse the palate, just like how you need a decent vacuum cleaner to cleanse the floor.

When you speak the name of this shade of grey aloud, count the number of syllables you use. This will determine which side of a longstanding international spelling and pronunciation debate you fall on.

Layered Steel

Much like ogres and onions, steel can also have layers.

Stainless Steel

This common kitchen finish may not stain, but it does collect greasy fingerprints if not cared for properly. Give your appliances a simple wipe down to instantly have them looking ten times better.

Grey, sleek, and incredibly valuable. Just what the eccentric billionaire ordered.

What exactly is “inox”? It sounds like a Pokémon.

According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, “Inox, from French acier inoxydable, is a synonym for stainless steel.”

Less garish than gold and handy when dealing with werewolves, silver is an excellent hue to keep around the home.

City Grey

Blend right into the urban surroundings with this particular shade of grey. Though I’m sure that these headphones can look just as good in a more rural setting.

Being a gigantic nerd, I tend to associate the word “chrome” with either hot rods or cyberpunk literature. But it’s also a nice finish for your kitchen or bathroom.

Check out our previous post “Sixteen more shades of grey”, dating back to when the original book had first started setting hearts a’flutter.

Mark joined Appliances Online in November 2011 and has since learned more than he ever expected to know about appliances. He enjoys looking for new and unusual ways for to solve everyday problems using typical household appliances. When he’s not toiling at the desks of Appliances Online and Big Brown Box, he tries to find time to write the next big bestseller and draw satirical cartoons, but is too easily distracted by TV, music and video games. Mark’s favourite appliance is the Dyson Groom Tool, as he loves the concept of vacuuming your dog. Google+

    Hi, I like all the products display in your online store. However, as we are not able to see the products, it shall be helpful if you can review us whether the see those models that we like to purchase (ie: fridge, washing machine wash and dry combo, LED TV, microwave oven). We like Samsung brand. I need it for my new apartment located at 551 Swanston Square, VIC 3053. Will be appreciated if you can refer me to other store/show room of which I can see the actual unit before buying from your side. Indeed, your price is cheaper.

    Thanks for your comment, James!

    Unfortunately, we don’t have a store available where you can view our products in person.

    However, another great way to check out our products is on our YouTube channel, which we frequently update with new videos detailing the latest appliances from our brands.

    If Samsung is your favourite brand, I recommend starting with our playlist of Samsung appliances: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQLqKLCs9oEhEkR8gpB2468pl_DrG200f
