Welcoming Vintage Style Kitchen
A kitchen is the heart of the home, and it’s a place where tons of memories are made. Having a vintage style kitchen that is unique and personalized will only make it a more welcoming environment. To make a vintage style kitchen, here are several ways for you. Paint is arguably the easiest (and possibly the cheapest) way to add vintage charm to your kitchen, though it may take the most time. The 1930s favored pistachio and mint colors; the 40s used a lot of green, red, blue, and yellow. The 1950s used a lot of pastels like pink and powder blue along with red, like in a lot of old diners. The 60s started to use brighter, more vibrant colors like blues, greens, and yellows. Lastly, the 70s favored warm earth tones in colors like orange, yellow, and brown. Then, choose the right appliances. Appliances are one way to make a big style statement in a kitchen. There are several companies that reproduce vintage appliances and this would be my recommendation over trying to find actual vintage appliances. Curtains also make a big statement in a kitchen because they’re usually one of the things that take up the most space. Vintage curtains are fairly easy to find and come in a variety of price points. Vintage prints are often kitschy, whimsical, and beautiful and can’t be rivaled by modern curtains.
Good lighting is something that every kitchen needs, and a vintage style kitchen light can be utilized in a huge kitchen or a small one just the same. Whether it’s a large crystal chandelier or atomic sunburst ceiling light, vintage lighting is varied in both design and price. Look for a good deal at the local flea market or shop for an upscale piece in a vintage boutique.
