1930’s Design Kitchen

Homes built in 1930 are often incredibly attractive. They are full of characteristic finishes and beautiful details. So if you like a modern kitchen, it can be a challenge to bring the two together. In this beautiful 1930’s design kitchen, the classic feel of the home comes together beautifully with the warm, yet slightly modern kitchen. So how do you bring together two such different styles?

It is mainly in the playful use of materials, textures and shapes. The lightly painted panels of the tall closets have a minimalist design. A true classic, but modernized. The light colour gives a soft feel, combining this with a pronounced marble and dark oak wood creates a bold look. On the other hand, we don’t want an overly industrial look either, so this will be finished with round shapes and edges. The ribbed glass in the China cabinet is a fun nod to old times and also adds texture. Using the same kind of handles as on the wooden fronts creates consistency. This creates calmness.

The brass patina Quooker tap emphasizes the warm look of the oak wooden kitchen. The dark brass matches the classic 1930’s feel and compliments the dark oak wood. Bora’s induction cooker is integrated flush so it does not draw too much attention. The ovens are also nicely concealed. These are located behind revolving door fittings. This provides extra calmness in the kitchen.

The seating area invites you to sit down. The retro round leg really gives a bar feel. The round shape allows you to sit all around, which makes the bar extra cosy.

As you can see, the design is very subtle. It takes balance to get the right combination where everything comes together in the perfect 1930’s design kitchen.
