The kitchen gets overlooked. People spend ages fussing over a calm and peaceful bedroom or carefully selecting prints for their living space. There’s nothing wrong with that. But it’s time to give your kitchen some attention. With a good dose of vintage kitchenware, you can up the ante and create a beautiful – yet practical – space.
Adding character to your kitchen
You’ll see plenty of Pinterest posts of open shelves, full of pots, pans and salad bowls that look like they just fell into place. Personally, we love clutter. Styling vintage kitchenware in this way doesn’t suit everyone, though. Pick out pieces you love and start experimenting – French earthenware pots for your wooden spoons, 1950s soda crates full of glasses stacked up, or copper trays to serve food.
However you style your stuff, a home full of vintage can never be accused of lacking soul. Hoard coffee pots, carboy jars and champagne buckets or keep it minimal with carefully selected pieces. Most of it can be used, too, if you want. Those carefully-designed shelves aren’t always just for show.
Browse our vintage kitchenware and accessories to get inspiration for your home. It’s one of our favourite categories and we’re always pleased with the latest additions from our vintage dealers – whether that’s a coffee Moulin, enamel serving dish or a Swiss Army water bottle.
