If you’re looking to give your modern kitchen a vintage look on a budget, consider hanging prints. There are many varieties of kitchen prints available. Consider adding them in a set or certain theme. Creating a small gallery wall of prints can truly transform your space. Vintage garden prints or old café prints are the perfect décor item. Be sure to add a frame that’s fitting for the look. Thick, dark wood frames or a distressed white frame will dress these prints up beautifully and look great on your kitchen wall.
Sometimes the best kitchen updates are the less obvious ones. For example, updating or adding a backsplash. This kitchen design got an instant upgrade with a white marble backsplash. Marble is as practical as it is lovely, which makes it a great choice for a backsplash. You can create a marble backsplash with marble slab, wall tiles or even marble floor tiles.
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.
To have a great blend of styles, you need to have a good foundation. Observe what finishes you currently have. Both vintage and modern styles embrace brushed nickel, chrome and bronze for finishes on appliances. Countertops and kitchen cabinets should be considered as well, as these are not cheap features to replace. However, if you’re changing your look, you can always paint your kitchen cabinets a neutral color to make them blend in better with both styles. Marble countertops are a great accompaniment to either style as well. While you don’t have to remodel your kitchen to accommodate your style choices, it might be a good idea if you’re due for an upgrade.
