A retro kitchen has a soul of its own. She is strong, full of personality, but at the same time she is full of delicacy and nostalgia. To bet on this style of decoration for the kitchen is to be absolutely sure of guaranteeing a place to welcome and be welcomed.
The retro kitchen models are inspired by the 1950s and 1970s, bringing to today the glamor, sweetness and lifestyle of that era.
But, attention! Do not confuse retro decor with vintage decor. For although both styles refer to the past, the vintage uses original pieces of the time, and the retro is a modern re-reading of what was once used. However, both can be used together in the decoration.
Well, let's get to the point and what you came up with in this post: figuring out how to set up a retro kitchen to raze. Check out the tips below and hand in the mass:
How to Build a Retro Kitchen
1. Define how your retro kitchen will look
The first step, first of all, is to define how much your kitchen will follow the retro style. You can choose to set up the whole environment with this proposal or even leave the retro appearing in just a few details.
In this case it is possible to compose the retro style with other types of decoration and to set up a modern, minimalist or Scandinavian kitchen, for example, joining contemporary tendencies with elements of the past.
But it is important to be clear about that point so you can follow a line of decoration and not get lost in the way.
Colors are fundamental elements in retro decor and should be thought of soon after. You can opt for a retro kitchen of strong and vibrant colors or leave for a cleaner and more delicate trend.
In the first case, bet in shades like blue , red and yellow mixed to black as a base. In the second option, the ideal is to use pastel colors or candy colors in shades of pink, green, yellow and blue. The white background gives support for that softer palette.
3. Floors and tiles
After defining what your retro kitchen will look like and what colors predominate in the decor, decide what the floor and walls will look like. The suggestion is to use hydraulic and subway floors and tiles that perfectly match the proposal.
But there is still the option of using Portuguese tiles, arabesques or composing a black and white plaid, reminiscent of the famous disco floor.
When in doubt, choose a wall strip to apply the coating, usually the one that sits on the countertop of the sink. On the floor, you can follow the same concept and apply only a floor strip. Notice only the visual harmony between floor and wall, without forgetting the other elements that will come later.
The furniture represents a good part of the decoration of the retro kitchens. They are usually responsible for bringing color and life to the environment. So the trick here is to wager on cabinets with the colors of the retro decor chosen earlier.
To complete the style, invest in furniture with frames, those of classic joinery, with round or shell-shaped handles.
Tables and chairs also enter this list, do not forget them.
Appliances are the cat's leap in retro style decor. They close with the golden key the proposal, not to mention that they are a charm apart.
The list ranges from larger items like refrigerator and stove to smaller but equally indispensable items such as an electric mixer, a blender and a toaster.
And, remember, to be true retro, the electrostatics must have bright colors or pastels, as well as aluminum parts.
Retro appliances are great decorating options for those who just want to add a touch of style to the kitchen. Another advantage of these objects is that they bring the nostalgic air without giving up the current technology, since most of them are modern re-readings (unless you are using a vintage electro).
6. Decorative objects
In addition to the appliances mentioned above, you can also choose to decorate the retro kitchen with objects such as decorated cans, potted plants, ceramic and enameled pots and pans.
The use of shelves and niches to leave the objects exposed is also a strong trend in this style of decoration.
