Retro and Vintage Kitchen Accessories General Information

Vintage will mean different things to different people, however, it is generally considered to belong to styles from 20 to 30 plus years ago. It is now becoming difficult to find original vintage items, so there are plenty of modern items you can find that have the vintage styling.

I love the older looking look items that hark back to the 1950’s, to style my kitchen. Choose from clocks, storage jars, and mug sets.

In my own kitchen, I like to have a combination of modern and older styled items. For example, I have an old fashioned looking clock on the wall but a modern looking electric kettle. Together they make a great style statement.

Another great style trick is to find a genuinely old piece in an antique shop, flea market or thrift store and match this up with a modern but old looking item.

Retro and Vintage Kitchen Accessories

With original antique items in short supply, you can still get the look with modern items that are made to look older. Choose from clocks to amusing retro enamel signs, all these will look great in your kitchen. I’m rather taken with items that were not around 30 years ago that have been made to look vintage.
