Your Kitchen Style: Retro

Feeling nostalgic for days gone by? Step back in time by giving your kitchen retro style. But don't worry, you don't have to sacrifice modern conveniences to create a vintage kitchen. Many new appliances come in old-fashioned designs.

  • A red refrigerator, red radio, and red accent decor pop against this retro kitchen's otherwise monochromatic color scheme.
  • A black-and-white-checkered floor lends a classic look to this kitchen. The retro floor is paired with blue walls, stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry, a white tiled backsplash, and a black countertop, giving the space a modern appeal.
  • A black-and-white kitchen acts as the perfect backdrop for a vintage table and colorful accessories. The light-blue ceiling adds another splash of color to the space. A red rug matches red tableware, which is displayed in open-face cabinet shelves.
  • This kitchen blends vintage-looking mint green appliances, green window treatments, and mint green hardware with clean, contemporary white cabinetry.
  • A Formica-and-aluminum island paired with red-and-chrome stools give this kitchen a fun 1950s diner feel. An aqua glass-tile backsplash and red pendant lights complete the hip design.
