Add a Vintage Touch to Your Kitchen

Vintage Kitchen Items

A well decorated vintage-inspired kitchen has a special charm to it. If you like the feel of a simple, shabby-chic space, a vintage kitchen might be right up your alley.

Some people go all-out when it comes to vintage decor, while others like to add pops of vintage with appliances, colors and textiles. No matter what your plan is, I have a few ideas to spark your imagination. After all, you should love the space you cook, bake, and eat in, so why not spruce it up?!

Simple ways to add vintage appeal to your kitchen:

Get started

Find your inspiration first. Maybe your pinterest board is full of 1950’s kitchen scenes or you’ve pulled pics from magazines that capture your style. Gather your inspiration and take a few notes of what you want to add to your kitchen.

Think about color

If you aren’t doing a total kitchen renovation, changing your whole color scheme may be out of the question. You can make small tweaks to help your new vintage pieces fit in. Maybe you’ll add red to your blue and white kitchen to draw from the 1950s popular color scheme. Yellows, browns and oranges are the colors of many of our childhood homes. Look for pieces that take a fresh approach to those hues.

Vintage KitchensSettle on your vintage style

VIntage kitchens come in all types. If you’re dreaming of a “shabby chic vintage farmhouse” feel, look for tea towels, mismatched plates and farmhouse tables and chairs. Think vinyl table set and bold primary colors for a 1950s inspired look. Vintage-looking toasters, blenders and mixers are popular and easy to find and add a special touch.

Enjoy your new space!

After you’ve put in the hard work to spruce up your kitchen, it is time to enjoy it. Invite your family in to help you whip up a dessert or host a nice brunch complete with cinnamon roll pancakes, bacon, fruit and blueberry cream cheese scones.
