Decorate With Retro Kitchen Curtains

So what would you need to make some cheerful retro kitchen curtains? The typical kitchen was dressed with nice bright colors and large prints and perhaps a nice treatment at the top as something different and fun to tie them to the curtain rod with. The retro era was all about experimentation and the result was some design styles that were very questionable as far as taste is concerned. As long as you have fun there is little you can do wrong when hanging retro curtains.

A great way to get the retro theme happening is with the right colors and red and white would be the perfect way to go. A very typical red and white curtain would be some kind of checked curtain the type that would be also known widely as gingham. Alternatively you might choose to go with a pattern that consists of solid colors at the top and bottom with a printed design featuring in between on a white background. The type of print doesn’t really matter although generally speaking if it is nice and bold then it is going to provide you with the effect that you will be after.

When you imagine your retro kitchen curtains you should also try to imagine the type of kitchen that it would have been featuring in. Back in the fifties and sixties the decor of a retro kitchen would have featured a lot of Formica, particularly the bench tops and perhaps also the kitchen table. Burnt orange seemed to have become a preferred choice when going through the palette of way-out and wacky colors. The kitchen cabinets were usually painted and once again the colors were often bold and brutal.

The seating in a retro kitchen would have most likely have featured some kind of vinyl covering over chrome tubing, possibly tending toward the space ace in design and promise.

There is no way known that among all of this garish melange of color and experimentation with materials that the curtains hanging in front of the kitchen windows were going to be anything less that bold and loud.

If you are going to decorate your kitchen following a retro style then the one thing that you simply must do when you get to the curtains is have fun with them. Rather than design them with simple tab tops, use bows, make sure they stand out but also make sure that they are breezy and they can be drawn back to let in the maximum amount of light possible.
