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.
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.
Don't be afraid to use black in narrow or smaller spaces – as long as you have the lighting to balance the darkness. It’ll become a comfy, cozy spot to be in when done right. Your black kitchen can be as traditional in feel and in style as a simple, white kitchen can be. Just look how beautiful those classic cabinets are in black. One may not think that wood works with black but, in fact, it can cozy up a modern, chic design in an instant making it a more welcoming space – like you see here with the floor. There's something really freeing about this kitchen, so make sure when deciding on your kitchen renovation you realize that darker, deeper tones can have that same light and breathy air about it. We‘re loving this edgy and artistic black kitchen. Filled with subway tile, industrial pendant lighting and black cabinetry, you‘ll wow yourself with its design everyday when you walk in for breakfast.You should really think about what you put on your shelves, especially with some open cabinets, because it can make or break the theme and vision you’re going for. The pops of color here play well with the black scheme. Just because it’s a kitchen doesn‘t mean you can’t be completely unique and innovative with your styling ideas. This space combines so many different themes of interior design: classic, contemporary and rustic too. Here‘s a kitchen that shows how dramatic and rich an all-black kitchen can truly be. It will never go out of style – black never does – and neither will the sophisticated lines of the space. Black can be the perfect foundation to a fashion-forward space full of style and modern design. We love how bachelor-pad like this space feels but also how upscale and beautiful it is too.
