1950s Kitchen Style

Retro is very popular right now and if you are thinking about designing your kitchen in a 1950s decor style it is quite easy to find 1950s kitchen style accessories. With a retro style 50s kitchen you can incorporate the funky 50s look with a modern 21st century kitchen.

The 1950s were an optimistic, prosperous and conservative time and entertainment was revolutionized with the invention of televisions, rock and roll and new movies.

Fifties Kitchen Style

Airy, open floor plans were popular and kitchens were being outfitted with new stainless steel and chrome appliances, which make cooking easier and faster. Pastel colors like pink, yellow, aqua and turquoise were commonly used in this type of old-fashioned kitchen decor so you might like to incorporate these if you are seeking a 1950s kitchen style.

Formica and plastics were used for the tables and chairs. Formica countertops, which were easy to wipe down, matched the chairs and tables. Tablecloths and furniture were made from vinyl.

1950’s Kitchen Style Materials

Another material used in kitchen decor in the fifties was bark cloth. This was often patterned in abstract shapes or boomerang. Home bars, picnic, barbecue and party accessories were popular, as entertaining came to the forefront. Melamine dishes, melmac and tupperware could be found in most homes.

If you want a nostalgic 1950s look for your kitchen, you can find a lot of retro kitchen accessories including fridges, ovens and other appliances like drink mixers or toasters. These are also available in 50s styling with modern technology.
