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 kitchen peninsula has an irregular form and includes shelving storage for boxes, jars and other things. It can be used as a bar if desired but ultimately it remains a multifunctional feature. A kitchen peninsula adds counter space but this doesn’t mean its top has to match the counters. In fact, it could be interesting to play with contrasts and various combinations of materials, textures, finishes and colors. Just like islands, peninsulas can have a variety of different designs, forms and sizes, depending on the space available and the aesthetic preferences. A small peninsula such as this one can be a really great addition to a compact kitchen. If your kitchen has a large support beam or column and you don't really know what to do with it, use it as a support for a peninsula. It can be small and you can use it as a breakfast table in the morning.
