Three Tips To Create An Adorable Vintage Kitchen

Vintage kitchens are a hard thing to recreate in this age of technology. Sure, we all love the look of a vintage kitchen, but we aren’t often willing to give up our modern creature comforts in the name of style.

It brings us back to the age-old quandary of form versus function. Still, there are some easy ways to achieve the vintage kitchen look without sacrificing your appliances, or even your budget if you are a cheapskate.

1. Change out your surfaces. Paint the cabinets a non-traditional color, such as mint, tiffany blue, or pale pink-but use an eggshell or matte finish. If you have the budget, replace your floor with black and white checkered tile (Some stores have stick-on linoleum tile if you are a DIY kind of gal).

2. Buy vintage appliances. Nowadays, there are tons of options out there and you can buy old-looking toasters and refrigerators that have the look of vintage machines without the age.
