Vintage inspiration: Designing your dream kitchen

Three functional and stylish vintage kitchens that will inspire your renovation
Chris Warnes



We have put together three stunning kitchens inspired by eras long gone to give you some food for thought when it comes to your own kitchen reno. 

Timber delight

This naturally bright timber kitchen has copper pendant lights and a secret pantry which is accessed via a Centor sliding door hung on an exposed track. Personalised touches that add character to this gorgeous space.

Heritage charm 

Paying respect to the history of this heritage home, this kitchen is a wonderful blend of old and new. The high ceilings, timber floors and retro tiles create a sense of home while the overhead storage and touches of colour make it a functional and creative space.

Monochrome magic

A monochromatic palette, copper pots, handles and an old clock give this space antique flair. The zinc Brillié clock is a stand-out piece as is the enamel British Transport sign from the 1930s. The subway tile splashback and oven tie the room’s look together and make it a cohesive space.
