From your knobs to the drawer pulls, switching these pieces of hardware out to something that fits with the style will help with your transformation of the space. Remember, it‘s the little details that matter. From the fridge to the stove, instead of going with more modern appliances try finding some with the vintage appeal. This will certainly help change the personality of your space as well. Tupperware has definite retro vibes and you’ll not only love using it but it’s a great way to decorate your kitchen as well. It‘s just another element that will pay homage to the throwback era. Who is a fan of Coca-Cola? Well, if you are, adding a bit of their accents to your retro kitchen will surely be a winner. As it too adds to the vintage appeal and funky personality of the time.
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.
Another option is textured glass which is molded or embossed to show all sorts of patterns. This technique makes the glass stand out from a visual and tactile point of view. There are lots of options to choose from. Rain glass, for instance, is a lovely option but so is the ribbed, pebbled, grooved or beveled glass. Kitchen cabinets with this sort of glass cabinet fronts don't usually show stains, marks and fingerprints. They also hide any streaks really well. However, a downside is the fact that such designs can become outdated quickly. A particularly interesting type of glass is seeded glass which has a vintage charm that you simply can’t ignore. This type of glass features tiny bubbles and has a handcrafted look that gives it an old-fashioned appeal that usually defined vintage and cottage decors but which can also look great in traditional settings. Then there's also leaded glass which has a special type of charm. It looks elegant and it usually looks good in traditional decors, having an artisanal look. It can be stained and it can usually be found in salvage shops, flea markets or through specialty retailers.
