Is your kitchen style retro?

Retro styles are very much in vogue at the moment. 

Being fashionably nostalgic and adding your own twist to the clothes you wear or to the style of your home is considered cool; after all, a true design classic never goes out of style. The same can be said for the kitchen and the style that you choose.

To some, the term ‘retro’ may evoke the style of the 60’s or 70’s, but it can actually be used when referring to any style from a recent era. Since true fitted kitchens are a post war invention, it’s likely that a ‘retro styled kitchen’ would be one influenced by the 50’s and 60’s onwards.

Whether you choose a contemporary kitchen and add a statement piece of furniture such as the classic ball chair or lighting - to infer retro style, or opt for a kitchen that has an accent colour, such as hot orange or vibrant yellow, choosing a kitchen with a ‘retro’ influence is sure to be stylish.
