Ways to add vintage charm to your kitchen

With every new season comes a catalogue of new and exciting kitchen design trends.

And this season is all about capturing vintage style with a contemporary twist.
Steeped in nostalgia, this trend encompasses a whole host of designs that will allow you to achieve some seriously high impact looks.

Here are just some of the ways that you can inject elements of vintage charm into your kitchen this season.

Period lighting

As the main social hub of the home, it’s important that you install effective lighting into your kitchen. After all, with more people than ever before cooking, socialising, eating and entertaining in their kitchen, it’s important that your space is well lit.

Lighting can also transform the entire look and feel of a room, especially when it comes to adding period-inspired character to a space. And if you’re looking to add authentic vintage charm to your kitchen, you will be pleased to hear that there are lots of period accurate lighting solutions that you will be able to get your hands on.

Retro appliances

Today, there are more companies than ever before who are launching retro-inspired appliance ranges. This means that you will be able to access vintage inspired appliances that do not compromise on modern day performance.

From refrigerators and stoves through to microwaves and kettles, there are lots of different products available that come with Energy Star ratings.

Farmhouse sink

One of this season’s most popular trends is the farmhouse sink. Available in fireclay or porcelain with a gooseneck faucet, this type of sink is the epitome of vintage style.

However, this style of sink tends to work best in older houses of farmhouses.

Plate rack

When it comes to adding vintage charm to your kitchen, it really is all about the finer details if you stand any chance of creating a warm, inviting and authentic space.

And a plate rack is the perfect ways to integrate a decorative and practical storage solution into your kitchen, especially if you’re looking to capture true vintage style.

Vintage linens

Whether you use vintage linen to conceal the exposed fittings and fixtures under your sink or as a way to cover exposed shelving, colourful and patterned linen is a great way to inject bursts of personality into your kitchen.

You could even try stacking a colourful stack of vintage tea towels on your dining table or worktops to create an unusual focal point. The possibilities are truly endless!
