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 However, a downside is the fact that such designs can become outdated quickly.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.

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.
Nothing is out of sight or out of mind. All this openness brings to attention another detail: the function of these shelves. The practical thing to do would be to fill the shelves with items that you use on a daily basis. This way they'll always be right there, easy to grab and easy to use, with no need to open and close doors or drawers. Another option is to use the shelves as display surfaces for decorations such as ornate plates, framed photos and other things. Either of these options is great as long as it suits your needs.
