Retro kitchens: 11 funky ideas to inspire your design

If you want a retro kitchen then check out our guide to bringing the coolest trend to life in your home.

Retro kitchens are having a comeback – and with good reason too. The joyful, colourful surfaces, rounded shapes, and kooky details, are an attractive alternative to somewhat vanilla kitchen designs. Retro cabinetry and worktops work very well in small kitchens – making them attractive to small home owners –, while they work a treat in livening up period properties too, for those who want to steer away from keeping everything classic.

In the 1950s, the kitchen moved from being a purely functional space to a more social one. Ergonomics and efficiency became staples of kitchen designs, which now featured space-saving layouts and labour-saving devices. Kitchen units were fitted with streamlined  worktops in Formica, celebrated for their easy-to-wipe surface and versatility.

These retro kitchen design ideas, from colourful splashbacks to melamine accessories, will get you inspired – and when you’re looking for more kitchen ideas and practical advice on bringing your dream looks to life, check out our hub.
