Ideas for Retro Kitchen Appliances

Retro style kitchenI‘m a retro fan. I love just everything that comes in the retro style. But what I like the most are kitchens and kitchen appliances in retro style. Maybe because they remind me of my grandmother‘s kitchen.

Just everything goes when it comes to retro kitchen appliances: toasters, refrigerators or breakfast stations. And they come in so many colors you can‘t even count them all.

In my opinion retro kitchen appliances totally go with tiny living, may it be a tiny house, a small apartment, RV, Camper, houseboat or even dorm room. The retro chic definitely creates the right mood. It has an aura that combines simplicity with sophistication, elegance with functionality.

While you enjoy the retro look evoking the good old days you still want to have contemporary efficiency and flawless functionality. So, you want to have a refrigerator in retro style but it still should be Energy Star rated. I think kitchen appliances in retro style fit into every kitchen decor and kitchen size adding with their unique color finishes a glamorous eye-catching spot.Retro style kitchen

Some brands have their own retro style series so you can match your kitchen appliances in style and color. I still would recommend to choose different colors for the different appliances to keep the look of your retro kitchen interesting and fascinating.

To find great retro style kitchen appliances you can hunt them on garage sales all over the country or at flea markets – or you just take a look at the three ideas I added below and maybe you find exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Customer reviews

When I was a child, I loved both the way it looked and the way it worked. Now, there is a new DUALIT in my life. I enjoy making toast and English muffins and other such things with this toaster. It’s just a little different from most other units. What can I say? I like it. It makes me happy in the morning. And, I really like the way it works and the results it gets.

It is just simple, wonderful and incredibly functional product. The bottom line is this machine, no matter the age, rocks.

I just want to say that we have owned this toaster for 17 years and it works today as well as it did the day we got it. We have never had to do a single repair on it. All original parts. It’s bullet proof.

I love this fridge. The fridge is just lovely looking. I added the matching microwave and both are great products. Absolute perfect mint color and retro feel.

The refrigerator is great—cute, in fact, with an excellent color-fast finish on the outside, sturdy shelves and drawers on the inside. Freezer compartment will hold ice and a few small items.

Love, love, love this fridge! It works perfectly, looks amazing. We get compliments all the time. And when you open it up and see how much room is in there, people are impressed. Buy it!

Customer reviews

You gotta love this one. It works great and added a nice touch to my kitchen. The coffee maker is fantastic, doesn’t drip and the filter is very easy to remove and clean. The grill works fine too. Timely delivery, works perfect. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

This little appliance is absolutely beautiful. The griddle comes out for easy cleaning. The little hatches for the coffee and water reservoir can come off for cleaning. The oven is large enough to bake a cake, albeit a small one. I am amazed at how many nice features are packed into one small appliance. The one feature that I like the most is that there is a 30-minute timer. I can see why RV campers have such good reviews of this product because there is enough room to cook a meal for 4 people. I LOVE THIS.

We bought this unit for our camper. We just returned from our first weekend outing and the breakfast station worked perfectly. I would recommend this unit highly!
