Spring is an ideal time to clean your home of clutter and reorganize your belongings. It’s also the perfect time to reconsider a new kitchen style to best reflect your evolving taste. Vintage kitchens are brimming with personality, creating a vibrant focal point inside your home. Here are three tips for creating a historic-style kitchen design.
3 Ways to Make Your New Kitchen Design Look Vintage
1. Repurpose Old Light and Plumbing Fixtures
Instead of picking out brand new lighting and plumbing fixtures at the store, consider looking for old pieces and repurposing them for your kitchen space. For instance, industrial lighting once used on the outside of a barn could illuminate your kitchen island beautifully, while creating an interesting statement. Before your contractor repurposes anything you find, make sure the piece is safe and functional.
2. Incorporate Old-World Accessories
Think about adding old-world accessories to your kitchen design such as blown glass vases, dried flowers, or antique kitchen gadgets such as food scales and timers to make your space a little more interesting. You can even hang larger items, such as old wooden pitchforks, on the wall above cabinets to make the space feel unique.
3. Consider Distressed Wood
Instead of adding cabinets that look brand-new, ask your contractor about incorporating distressed wooden cabinets. They can either be made from simple stained wood or painted varieties, creating an interesting patina that makes your new kitchen feel lived-in. Additionally, you can pair distressed cabinets with tumbled tile, lending to the old-world feeling.
