Retro kitchens are funky, charming and quite playful too. They utilize fun colors, vintage pieces and a personality that you can‘t find anywhere else. And today we‘re showing you how to conjuring one right inside your own home. Check out these 20 elements to use when creating a retro kitchen and start getting busy with your redesign or renovation today! A checkered tile floor is an absolute must when creating a true retro kitchen. Black and white is the classic, timeless option but red and white works too if you want something a bit bolder. Add polka dots wherever you deem fit. They add a bit of femininity to the space but they also help create that funky, vintage feel that retro kitchens draw their personality out of. Think linens when it comes to this print as they’ll play nice. Red evokes that playful nature that retro styles have, especially when playing with diner styles. Use it as a main color or in your accents for a beautiful contrast to your stark neutrals.
This is the end result of my massive reorganization and improved functionality for this pantry! Everything has its place and is easy to access. Now I can easily see what food products I have. Finding a way to make storage functional can be challenging. Putting all of the cans in a large basket allows me to pull it out, making it easier to look for a particular product. No more knocking down cans to reach the back of the shelf!
The island is probably the most common accent piece for a kitchen but it‘s usually something that only large kitchens can accommodate. Islands go well with open floor plans so if you have the room then should definitely take advantage of it. However, the island is not the only option. A kitchen peninsula is an interesting and practical alternative for smaller spaces or for certain types of layouts. A kitchen peninsula can sometimes prove to be a better option than an island. It provides circulation on three sides while one side is usually attached to a wall and this can offer some nice advantages. A peninsula can be an extension for your kitchen cabinetry or even for a kitchen island. It can be lower than the counter and it can be used as a comfortable dining table or a breakfast nook.
