Retro Kitchen Redos

The kitchen is the heart of the home.  The smell of fresh-baked cookies, the meat and potatoes, moms apron.  I think when we think of a homey kitchen we picture June Cleaver pulling something just delightful out of the oven.

Nothing else speaks June Cleaver like a retro kitchen.  Retro kitchens are no longer a thing of the past.  The green world has really done something great by encouraging people to save what they can, especially when it comes to remodeling.

Personally I love retro kitchens.  The removal of some cabinet doors to give a more open feel has become very popular.  Dark paint colors and chandeliers have added a punch of personality to some kitchens.  Also, using modern countertops (granite, quartz, marble, stainless steel and wood) have brought these kitchens back to life.

I love the dark blue walls against all the white, and also the touch of modern cabinet hardware.

The openness of the cabinets, and the solid surface countertops along with the glass tile back splash gives this kitchen a modern feel while maintaining its integrity and charm.

I absolutely love the hollywood regency style glass cabinet doors and the stainless steel countertops.  The hanging lanterns give this kitchen a whimsical touch.
