Stainless steel lights are your best option when choosing your fixtures for a retro kitchen, especially when you have pendants over the breakfast bar and the like. When it comes to this, the simpler the better. Leave out your classic mixers and breadboxes on the countertops. They should be seen! Even though you`ll be using them, you‘ll want to use them as part of the theme's decor. When creating a retro kitchen you'll want to really think about your cabinets, because it can make or break your theme. So, if you really want to go all in – don‘t be afraid with deciding on pastel color cabinets and take your vision full-throttle. Padded stools can be thrown in the mix too. Stay away from steel or wooden bench seats because those are more traditional and modern, but those with padding can help with the personality you‘re searching for.
Installation is tricky with no room for error. Granite slabs can be easily damaged during installation and cannot be repaired. A damaged slab must be replaced without costs. Also, the base cabinets must be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the granite slab, which is something to seriously consider if you are remodeling. According to Rempros, granite countertops, in particular, require professional installation. Cutting the slab, making the sink cutouts, polishing edges and seaming is challenging. The Family Handyman says that it‘s not worth it for a do it your selfer to invest the time and dollars required for something they will likely do only once Radon is a radioactive gas that forms when radium decays into radon, and it is naturally found in granite.
As we mentioned previously, details are important. So add a retro clock to the wall, an antique food scale on the counter top and a charming timer situated on the stove and oven. Even if you want to nix color but still create a retro kitchen black and white can get the job done for you, so don't worry. Use these classic neutrals as the foundation of your space. Breakfast tile countertop bars are a must as they evoke that diner style we all love but also give you the opportunity to create a place to decorate and add your own unique touches as well. Mint green is another go-to color when exploring retro kitchen style. From backsplash to the cabinets, this color works both as accent and as foundation so don’t be afraid to play around with it a bit. Add some throwback signage to the space too! Over the stove, breakfast bar or even creating a gallery wall behind the kitchen table. This too is a way to bring in your own personality.
