Kitchen remodeling companies are seeing an interesting kitchen design trend this year; retro kitchens. It seems that more and more homeowners are embracing a throwback to mid-century decor, infusing vintage and traditional designs into their modern kitchens to achieve a truly unique look and feel to this busy part of their home.
Vintage design trends are nothing new, but certain specifics can differ every time a new fad hits the industry. With hundreds of kitchen remodeling projects under their belt, our experts at Envy Home Services have determined the following trends to be the strongest contenders for the title of “Best Vintage Kitchen Design.”
Many kitchen renovation contractors and designers maximize the use of colors to breathe new life into an otherwise tired old theme. Pastel colors have long been a staple of classic kitchens. With the right combination of hues and patterns, you can really make these neutral shades pop, even in the typically design-heavy style of a vintage kitchen.
Small Space Problems
Retro kitchens face no problems with limited floor areas. In fact, you could even argue that smaller kitchens lend themselves better to vintage designs than a bigger kitchen. Of course, storage is the number one challenge in this type of space. Consider wood grain overhead cabinets, along with built-in wall shelving to put a lot of function into your fashion. Neutral and light colors like the pastels suggested above can also make small spaces appear larger than they actually are.
Don’t be afraid to ask your kitchen contractors to use wild and busy designs for your flooring. Retro kitchens thrive on decorative floor tiles. Incidentally, this also pairs well with the other elements discussed in the points above.
