Vintage ideas for a kitchen

If you have moved house or are considering taking a new direction with a redecoration project, you could choose to experiment with a more vintage feel. In the kitchen, in particular, shabby chic is a very on-trend look, though many homeowners can shy away from engaging with the trend if they have a relatively modern kitchen to start off with. There’s a well-established myth that you can’t mix old with new when it comes to the world of interiors, but it’s something that does work quite well in the kitchen.

Vintage furniture, bricks and blinds

By combining things like silver aluminium worktops with wooden furniture and cabinets, you can create a kitchen with a vintage feel that straddles both contemporary and retro styling. Surfaces and textures are key to getting this look right, so make a feature of traditional floorings such as exposed brick or wooden floorboards and add kitsch detailing with accessories and soft furnishings. Marry new and old by using blinds with floral or nature-inspired prints and carrying the colours of the print through into rugs, cushions on chairs and even onto the chairs themselves by painting wooden varieties with a simple lick of paint. Don’t be afraid to experiment with styles.

Vintage kitchen ideas on a budget

Many people find the homely feel of vintage interiors appealing, and this can be accentuated by making features of the utensils and goods that create the sounds and smells of a kitchen. You can do this by hanging pans from wooden racks alongside drying herbs and displaying your cookbooks and best plates in cabinets or on shelving.

For example, a pretty decorated vase can be re-used as a utensil holder to store wooden spoons and other kitchen must-haves. Vintage kitchen signs are still popular and are a quick way to create the vintage look of the kitchen, especially when on a budget. If you find it hard to source such gems you might benefit from visiting one of the many vintage-inspired interiors shops on the high street.
