This is exactly what I needed to kick start my quest to organize my home! Taking the time to set up functional storage space, labeling things, and making sure everything fits in the best way possible — these are all simple steps you can take to organize your home and ease the stress. We all have busy lives, so having items be easily accessible and ready when you need them is just one small step you can take in simplifying your life.
As we mentioned previously, details are important. So add a retro clock to the wall, an antique food scale on the counter top and a charming timer situated on the stove and oven. Even if you want to nix color but still create a retro kitchen black and white can get the job done for you, so don't worry. Use these classic neutrals as the foundation of your space. Breakfast tile countertop bars are a must as they evoke that diner style we all love but also give you the opportunity to create a place to decorate and add your own unique touches as well. Mint green is another go-to color when exploring retro kitchen style. From backsplash to the cabinets, this color works both as accent and as foundation so don’t be afraid to play around with it a bit. Add some throwback signage to the space too! Over the stove, breakfast bar or even creating a gallery wall behind the kitchen table. This too is a way to bring in your own personality.
Choose you cleaning products carefully when caring for quartz countertops. Products that are acidic or alkaline can damage the surface of the material. The chemical in rust removers, heavy duty cleaners, bleach and other compounds can be harmful. Make sure you read the care literature your manufacturer provides. Home Style Choices points out that the small percentage of resin material in your countertop means it’s not totally a mineral surface. While some sellers say that you can cut right on the surface, regularly cutting on the surface can lead to scratches. These countertops are equally as popular – and expensive – as natural stone options. As with any countertop material, the price of quartz varies according to the style, design and colors you choose. The more sink and appliance cut-outs you need, the more slabs you use and the fancier the edge treatments you choose, the more the cost will go up. Quartz is not a bargain choice. A general range is $60 to $100 a square foot installed. Other sources like Home Advisor cite higher prices, such as $150 to $280 per square foot.
Stainless steel lights are your best option when choosing your fixtures for a retro kitchen, especially when you have pendants over the breakfast bar and the like. When it comes to this, the simpler the better. Leave out your classic mixers and breadboxes on the countertops. They should be seen! Even though you`ll be using them, you‘ll want to use them as part of the theme's decor. When creating a retro kitchen you'll want to really think about your cabinets, because it can make or break your theme. So, if you really want to go all in – don‘t be afraid with deciding on pastel color cabinets and take your vision full-throttle. Padded stools can be thrown in the mix too. Stay away from steel or wooden bench seats because those are more traditional and modern, but those with padding can help with the personality you‘re searching for.
For the modern bar cart, these geo glasses are simple and perfect. Pair them with simple black stirrers for the guys and deck the rims in sugar for the girls. In my opinion, pink is the best. So when I saw these pink champagne flutes, I fell into an infatuation. They’re such the perfect shade of ballerina pink that will look stunning in all your selfies.
