By using retro kitchen appliances and even furniture you give this room a timeless look. It can also be a feature that adds elegance to the overall décor. If you want to go for a 1930s or 1960s look, then you can opt for stainless steel metal cabinets. They were very popular back then and they are also a very practical and functional addition to the kitchen. The cabinets were mainly white but you can add a chic touch to them now by painting them a bold color for example.

The main reason why metal cabinets and appliances were so popular back then is because they are very sanitary and this was an important issue at that time. Everyone was very concerned about having a clean home and kitchen, especially since there was no vaccine for polio yet.
