They say that all good things come full cycle and that is certainly true for the Retro look of this Dallas kitchen. Inspired by a 50s diner, we used diner-esque stainless steel shelves under glass-front cabinetry, incorporated green and blue tiles reminiscent of this time period and even customized a new refrigerator with a retro metal facing. We were also able to re-utilize the clients’ existing diner booths and decoratives to round out the look. The space also received a dramatic improvement in terms of square footage. Although the homeowners were closed in by a small galley layout before, we remodeled the space to make it much more open by bringing the kitchen and adjacent spaces together and raising the ceilings. See the before and afters below to see how we transformed the space…
