How to Make a Kitchen Look Retro

 In blog

Whether you were born in the ’70s or just really like old movies, you might be interested in creating a retro theme for your kitchen. Transforming a modern or even slightly outdated space into a retro wonderland is something that takes a bit of work but can definitely be done. If you are attempting to do a kitchen remodel to recapture that vintage theme in your Utah home, here are some elements you need to include.

Checkered Tile Floor

Nothing quite says retro like a classic checkered tile floor. Using a simple black and white pattern emulates the feeling of being in the past. Tile flooring does more than just make your kitchen look good though, it also comes with many other great benefits. They’re also incredibly easy to clean, hypoallergenic, and are resistant to fading or fire.

Just because your floor is black and white does not mean that the rest of your kitchen has to be. By injecting the color red into a lot of your materials and appliances, you can portray that retro look that you are going for.

Even swapping it out for the black tiles on the floor can be a good move if you want a bolder look.

Stripes and Polka Dots

Using patterns in your kitchen can be a great way to achieve that vintage look, especially with stripes and polka dots. Putting a few subtle stripes or polka dots into the backsplash or other surfaces of your kitchen can be nice. Just make sure you don’t overdo it or the whole thing will come off looking tacky and busy.

A better place to include these unique patterns is in the kitchen linens and tableware. Plastering them with stripes and polka dots is a great way to capture that retro vibe.
