When I was shopping for the new refrigerator, I narrowed it down to two options. They were very similar, but one came in a absolutely smooth white glossy finish, and the other came in the textured white I was more familiar with as the owner of a refrigerator that was made before some of you were born.
The salesperson said the glossy smooth kind was more current. I wondered if it would get all scratched up and crappy looking, and she said no, she didn't think so, "unless you put a lot of magnets on it or something." Which is kind of funny, considering my fridge:
Front: photos of friends' children, school reminders, children's drawings, timer, coupons, Leap Frog alphabet magnets set plus two supplemental lowercase letter sets.
Photos of kids, decorative magnets, kitchen utensils hanging from magnetic rack.
Grocery list, school information, commonly used phone numbers, magnetic basket holding pens and pencils and batteries, baggie for box tops, decorative magnets, magnetic notepad, recall notice about one of our cars, and a little cluster of magnets in case we have something else we need to put on the fridge.
So I got the textured finish.
