Vintage kitchen cabinets are made to be authentic restorations or reproductions of earlier styles. Purists appreciate the historical accuracy of vintage kitchens, as opposed to retro kitchens which are more nostalgic than historical.

For the aficionado, every detail must be in place: Vintage appliances, old-fashioned telephones, and period decor come together to accurately restore the kitchen designs of the past.

Older Is Better: Let’s face it: Most old things were built to last. Vintage kitchen cabinets, for example, can survive a surprisingly long time. My grandparents’ kitchen cabinets are original to the 1949 postwar house, and they show no signs of giving out even after decades of abuse by children, grandchildren, and now great grandchildren. Compare that to the cheap imported cabinets some folks buy that last less than 20 years, and you will see why newer is not always better.

Mid-Century Modern has been the darling of the design world for some time now, but wood grain and tapered legs aren’t the only game in retro town—especially in the kitchen, where well-placed throwbacks from any decade are often right at home.

Plenty of homeowners are infusing their cooking and dining spaces with other old-school design staples, rethinking everything from size to palette. Whether in a nod to the bold approach of the ’30s or the kitschy flourishes in ’60s design, modern kitchens are finding a fresh new face in the past.

These seven kitchen trends are all about the retro style.
