A vintage feel is not just on trend, but a great choice for those looking for an affordable design. With a sharp eye, you can find the decorative pieces you need to complete the look at auctions, thrift stores and estate sales. Plus, a vintage look can allow you to continue adding singular pieces over the years, allowing your design to evolve as you do.

If you are a fan of Mad Men, sock hops, and homemade pies, fulfil your ‘50s fantasy with this throwback kitchen design. The best part is that companies are now releasing appliances that look like the oldies but still employ the latest technology!

As those with tight spaces are aware, you often have to compromise appearance, functionality – or both. With this look though, you can have it all. Soup it up by adding other space savers like a pull out pantry or by mounting your coffee maker and microwave under your cabinets.

6. Home, home on the range

This homey kitchen design is the embodiment of the rustic look. The great thing is that you can achieve it with upcycled materials. As an added bonus, you do not have to worry about scratches as they just add to the vibe.

7. The entertainers

This kitchen design provides all the seating you need if you love to entertain. If you want even more guests, add a larger table, but keep the bar seating so you have a flexible entertaining space.
