These gorgeous mid-century modern kitchens will make you swoon if you love retro chic style. If you are in the process of renovating your kitchen, you may be drawn to the mid-century style, which has soared in popularity lately. Thanks to TV shows like The Queen’s Gambit and Mad Men, more and more homeowners are curious about how to get that moody 60s look in their own homes. Of course, you don’t want your home to look too much like Grandma’s, so keeping it contemporary and modern is key to getting this look right.
The biggest difference between mid-century kitchens and contemporary kitchens is that the open “American style” kitchen trend is much more recent. Back in the mid-century, kitchens were often closed off from the rest of the home. The kitchen was a place to prepare food in private. It was not a socializing area the way that it tends to be today. So keep that in mind as you browse our selection of photos.
Mid-Century Modern Kitchens
Mid-century modern design has had a lasting impact on our homes and furniture pieces today. It brought a much more minimal and practical approach to furniture than what was used prior. It was also a period that streamlined the furniture production process and made new furniture accessible to millions as the post-War economy boomed.
