Vintage kitchen islands could give your kitchen remodel the perfect look.

Looking to add vintage flair to your kitchen island? One of the simplest ways is to repurpose a piece of vintage furniture—think a paint-peeling desk, a well-worn dresser or a flea-market find.

Adding vintage character to the salvaged piece can be as simple as sanding and re-staining, or as elaborate as retrofitting the island with new shelves and fabric-insert cabinet doors.

When looking to add vintage style to the kitchen island, don't underestimate the power of accessories. Brushed-metal bin pulls installed on the cabinetry, round metal bar stools that swivel, or even a distressed finish on a newly painted piece are great ways to achieve that worn but charming feel.

Complement your vintage kitchen island with a variety of textured surfaces, like an exposed-brick backsplash or brick-pattern floors. Colorful retro appliances are also back in vogue—such as 50s-inspired refrigerators available in a wide range of shades from pastel green to cherry red and buttercup yellow.
