Feb 6, 2023

Shall we deep dive into the vintage kitchen trends you’ll fall in love with?  😍  

Retro kitchens are all the rage—we’ve come across many of these delightful spaces and are eager to share the trends with you if you, too, can’t resist good, old-fashioned retro style. But let’s take a step back first—what exactly constitutes a retro kitchen after all? When people talk about retro kitchens, they’re often referring to mid-century kitchens, which were famous for metal cabinets or cottage style wooden cabinets, countertops, and vintage appliances. 

If you live in a newer space, you can still achieve the retro look. One way to design and decorate retro kitchens is to start with your favourite colourful appliance and create a colour palette around it, designers share. If it becomes too bold, you can also incorporate different shades and tones of the colour as well. You can also maintain the bright retro feel by selectively emphasizing places like the wallpaper, appliances, and backsplash tile.
