You probably already have some vision of what mid-century modern kitchens have to look like. If you don’t, check out a few online galleries. There are lots of cool examples that will give you inspiration.
To make a mid-century modern kitchen happen, you’ll need to prioritise a couple of ideas and concepts.
Start by prioritising natural elements and materials. Wooden cabinets or laminate alternatives, a marble countertop (or a synthetic material that looks like marble), greenery and even a forest-inspired colour palette will all give you the foundations of a mid-century modern kitchen.
Next, create accents in bright and exciting colours. Hot pink, orange, bright blue – these are some excellent choices but they’re not the only ones. Obviously, such accents have to be used sparingly in order not to overpower the kitchen space.
In terms of appliances, select clean, functional and modern pieces. Select those that are energy-efficient. Choose materials like stainless steel. To make things a bit more intriguing, you can also choose one or two vintage appliances. A retro coffee maker on the countertop will be such a fun touch that you’ll definitely enjoy in the morning.
Now’s the time to think about a couple of retro elements in your modern and clean kitchen space. These are the ones that will give it the mid-century flare.
Furniture gives you of the easiest choices, especially due to the fact that you can easily find authentic pieces in vintage shops and boutiques. A few pieces of art hung on the wall will also be a nice touch, regardless of the fact that many people don’t display paintings/prints in the kitchen.
To sum it all up, keep it authentic (a genuine vintage spice rack will be such a lovely addition to the kitchen!) but also fun. Your personality and aesthetic sense should guide you. Trust your instincts and be selective about the addition of vintage pieces. Genuine ones will make a statement, even if they’re not large and prominent.
