Vintage means different things to different people.

Generally if you are looking for the vintage style choose pieces that hark back to the 1950s or 1960s.

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 you kitchen. I’m rather taken with items that were not around 30 years ago that have been made to look vintage.

Red Polka Dot Kitchen Accessories

Red polka dot kitchen accessories gorgeous, they will perk up the color scheme in any kitchen but they go really well in a Kitchen that has a vintage or retro style.

Lime Green Kitchen Accessories

I think the lime green Kitchen accessories work really well in a Kitchen that is either predominately white or cream.

Lime green certainly makes a statement in the kitchen.

Wrought Iron Kitchen Accessories

Wrought Iron is a great material to choose for accessory products in the kitchen. The wrought iron can be bent into all kinds of shapes and sizes.

Vintage Kitchen Canister Sets

Easily and relatively cheaply you can get the vintage look for you kitchen by purchasing a set of vintage styled canister sets. There are plenty of interesting vintage styled canister sets, I like the sets that have an early 20th century look about them with distressed styled advertising logos printed onto the canisters.

Hot Pink Kitchen Accessories

If you have a daring personality you can go for hot pink Kitchen accessories, to grace your kitchen. I have to say I’m just not bold enough to go for the hot pink, but admire anyone who does.
