Most people believe that they need to upgrade their kitchens with modern designs, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. For our kitchen renovation experts, a blast to the past can be a viable alternative to your typical kitchen remodel. Here are a few retro kitchen renovation trends that we think deserve a comeback.
Retro Color Palettes
It’s possible to add a classic twist to a new kitchen with something as simple as a change in color themes. For example, turquoise combined with white, green and pastel pinks are reminiscent of older kitchen styles while hot pink with bold shades of green or orange have a more 1980s or late 1990s feel. You can also go for natural wood and warm shades of brown for a more neutral classic combo.
Enhance your kitchen’s storage while keeping that classic look with rectangular recessed panels. Beaded boards can also add a much-needed texture if you think your kitchen looks dull and flat. You can accentuate these classic cabinets with D-shaped chrome pulls, bar handles or concave knobs set over round metal backplates.
Retro kitchens tend to have a busy but inviting look. A great way to emulate this is by adding patterns. Curtains are an easy, semi-permanent way to add pattern, but you can also use materials like printed wallpaper to give your kitchen walls a dynamic, retro look.
Retro-Style Furniture and Appliances
Switching the furniture can add a lot of character to a retro-style modern kitchen. Retro-style chairs and a matching square laminate table will provide you with plenty of seating and a generous working surface while keeping that classic look.
