Love a cosy kitchen with a retro design? Whether you love colourful cabinets or retro style breakfast counter, styling your kitchen with designs inspired by the roaring retro 50s, 60s and 70s is a cool way to create a space that is warm and cosy yet full of personality.

Retro kitchen designs are represented by simply cosy cabinets with elegant or vintage chairs or modern kitchen cabinets with touches of the retro style. Both of the options can perfectly fit in every house decor, and can create the perfect vibe for your decor. Vintage decorations, special lighting fixtures and wood kitchen cabinets in retro style are well thought and designed to look warm and inviting.

Here are 5 ravishing retro kitchen schemes that you are bound to love!

1. The Glam Modern Retro Look

You can draw inspiration from the retro aesthetic without having to hunt through countless second-hand stores. With white and metallic finishes, this kitchen design is modern-retro. Simply add a few retro-inspired pieces like the stools and the bar trolley, and you have an eye-catching retro look that works perfectly in a modern-day setting.

2. The Colourful Retro Look

Retro designs feature pops of bright colour that instantly liven up the place and turn your kitchen into a warm, cosy family zone where everyone loves to gather and talk about their day. Whether you want to add a few colourful cabinets or want to add pops of colour through appliances, storage jars, or seating, your options are many. Colourful backsplash tiles are another excellent choice!

3. The Retro Mix & Match Look

For a retro-inspired kitchen scheme, boldly mix the old with the new, the plain with the brightly coloured, and the modern with the vintage. Mixing furnishings can create a colourful and eclectic look. Adding a bit of decoration doesn’t need to be expensive, either. Scour local garage sales, thrift shops and markets for treasures to take home. After all, one person’s trash is another’s treasure!

4. The Classy Retro Look

A white kitchen is one traditional look that will never go out of style. Add a few pops of bright colour, like red, and throw in some classy furniture, like the gorgeous wood dining table, and you have a retro-inspired kitchen that is classy yet so warm and inviting.

5. The Artistic Retro Look

Love retro-inspired art? Bring it into the kitchen! Create a retro-inspired kitchen by layering geometric tiles with bold colour. Simple brass pendant lights and black chairs allow the eye to rest; letting the vibrant elements shine. Retro and vintage images such as movie posters, magazine illustrations and images of Hollywood starlets can also add an instant nostalgic touch to a kitchen. Or, glam up your fridge with a selection of your favourites for a burst of colour and interest, and add more pops of colour through retro-inspired aprons and oven mitts hung from vintage hooks.
