The retro kitchen style is a mix of decades of old styles and it is influenced by the trends in the past. In essence, retro style kitchens are like “throwbacks” which generally evoke a nostalgic feel. It sometimes reminds us of a “diner like” ambiance. Retro kitchen cabinets are the perfect marriage of classic flair and contemporary vibe. It also puts emphasis on a sturdy build and functionality. The most popular design for retro kitchen cabinets are mid century modern. This kitchen cabinet style is characterized by a sleek appearance, streamline design, angular lines and geometric forms. The design is more seamless, plain and simple. And just like the modern style, it does not make use of ornamentation such as decorative details, mouldings, cornices or carvings. Materials may either be solid wood, laminate or veneers. Colors and finishes for mid century retro kitchen cabinets include light to medium stained woods.
This traditional kitchen focuses on more classic, neutral colors, starting with the raised panel cabinets painted in a cream tone. The rest of the walls, subway tiles on the backsplash, and mullioned windows are in frosty white, providing clean, clear lines. The large Carrara marble countertop for the kitchen island also provides a neutral yet natural finish, while the rough-grained dark wood flooring provides more warmth. The lampshade candelabra over the kitchen island and by the window nook give warmth and an antique vibe.
