retro kitchen design

How can I create a retro look for my kitchen?

Retro kitchens are fun and full of character. They allow you to play around with candy colours and pastel shades to create your own unique style.

Combine classic colours with glossy cabinets and retro accessories to bring your retro kitchen to life.

Modern retro kitchen units

Formica was once the mainstay of many a kitchen. Now you can have all the practicality of Formica with our stylish wipe-clean cabinets.

Speed Handled Nobilia kitchen has a life-like cement look. Available in a range of colours, you can create a two-tone effect by contrasting Black Concrete with one of the softer shades of Ivory or Alpine White.

Cascada Handled Nobilia kitchen has lacquered laminate doors in a traditional shaker style. Choose Reed Green to form the basis of your retro kitchen and select from an extensive range of handles to accentuate the look.

By including glass-fronted cabinets, you’ll add to the retro feel. Make your cabinets stand out with a backdrop wall painted in an understated neutral shade but have a feature wall painted in your chosen pastel colour.

Old-time kitchen diners

Islands are perfect if you want to create a retro kitchen diner. Surround the island with high stools in gleaming white or bold reds or yellows.

You can also use your island as a divider to separate the food preparation and dining side of the kitchen without closing them off from each other. This creates a relaxed, informal kitchen diner feel.

Kitchen islands are highly functional as they offer extra workspace for food preparation and additional storage space as you can use the under-counter area to store pots and pans.

Retro-style kitchen appliances

There are some fabulous retro kitchen appliances in candy and pastel shades with classic retro rounded edges. These include toasters, waffle makers and seriously chic retro coffeemakers.

Choose from greens, blues, lemons, creams and pinks for your small appliances and combine with some vintage pieces of crockery.

Large American-style refrigerators are a great addition to the kitchen. A large freestanding fridge-freezer in a fun pastel or bold shade can become the focal point of your kitchen. Take a look at this classic red fridge from Bosch.

Patterned retro flooring

A simple way to give your kitchen a retro vibe is to have patterned flooring. Vinyl flooring is ideal as it’s hardwearing and highly practical for a kitchen but also comes in a vast array of colours and patterns.

Patterned vinyl tiles bring a retro twist. Linear patterns work well as they create subtle visual illusions. Black and white check is a timeless classic.

Vinyl flooring also gives you the option of geometric patterns such as squares, rectangles, chevrons, and herringbone. Opt for geometric cubist tiling if you want to make a small kitchen seem larger than it is.
