Thankfully, in either style, light fixtures matter. A simple change can really do wonders for the look of your space. If you’re redecorating to mix these styles, it’s time to say goodbye to that old fluorescent light and switch to something eye-catching. Consider adding a light fixture with an exposed Edison bulb. Milk glass is also the perfect addition to a light fixture to give your kitchen a vintage look, but make the light a bit less harsh.
Using wood accessories are a great way to introduce a vintage style into your modern kitchen. This works well with small kitchen accessories such as serving trays, canisters and dish racks. Be sure whatever you’re using is food-safe and waterproof, as it’s likely you’ll be using it around food. Plants are a great choice to add to the kitchen and it's an affordable way to decorate on a budget. Ceramic and stone accessories are also a great way to incorporate vintage qualities into your kitchen. Containers for flour, sugar and more have benefits beyond decor. They can store your items stylishly and have them in reach when needed.
If you’re looking for a truly authentic way to integrate vintage and modern décor together, try finding vintage plates, bowls and serving ware. Antique stores and consignment shops are often a great place to find these beautiful pieces. They’ll also be a unique talking point when you’re entertaining. If you’d rather skip the hunt, there are plenty of vintage-looking serving sets available at your local home goods store. Look for ceramic, white and porcelain if possible. Florals and stripes work well here.
If you have a small kitchen, consider removing the upper cabinets. Replace them with open wall shelves instead. You’ll create a modern look and open up the room visually. To keep your open shelves organized and looking smart, group sets of matching plates, bowls and glassware together. Your tableware will be easy to find and close at hand.
