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.
If you have all white kitchen cabinets and decide you want to give your space a new look, one easy way is to paint your kitchen island in a different color. In this example, green antique wash was used on the kitchen island, making it stand-out against the all-white cabinets of the kitchen. Those who are more into modern, hi-tech style spaces would probably prefer to use a brighter green shade. Perfect for people who are into bright and bold colors, using high gloss bright green paint on your modern kitchen cabinets would definitely catch attention as it breaks from the cookie-pattern look of “modern kitchen looks”.
