Should I buy a vintage kitchen cupboard?

The hub of the home, the centre of social activity and the place where you cook up gastronomic delights deserves your attention in terms of decor and design. This is the space that many of us associate with warmth, comfort and contentment. Little wonder then that we spend so much time agonising over that perfect kitchen design and configuration. Though many of us like the idea of a vintage kitchen dresser, it can be difficult to know how to incorporate these often bulky yet gorgeous pieces of furniture. Think practically. If you’re working with a narrow galley kitchen, a freestanding vintage kitchen unit just isn’t going to work. It’s better to opt for reclaimed fittings or second-hand crockery to get your fix of vintage furniture. Have a lonely alcove or an open plan space crying out to be filled? A vintage kitchen cupboard could be the storage solution you’ve been searching for. A 1950s-inspired blue cupboard with a distressed shabby chic look exudes rustic farmhouse kitchen vibes.

Though there are some more industrial pieces that will complement a contemporary home, the majority of vintage kitchen cupboards work better in traditional, transitional or shabby chic style homes. If you’re looking for an heirloom piece that offers shed loads of character and storage space, an old kitchen cupboard could add the perfect finishing touch. Just ensure you measure your kitchen carefully before you make that initial investment.

Upcycled vintage kitchen cupboards

Though the majority of our vintage kitchen units have been carefully preserved and restored, you may find that some have suffered a little wear and tear. Before you go in heavy with the sandpaper, it’s best to seek expert advice on restoration techniques. Our dealers are always happy to answer any queries you may have about damage, refurbishment and preservation. If you want to update your vintage kitchen cupboard to match existing decor, there are a number of easy modifications you can make. Consider switching out the hardware to match that of other fittings, painting or staining the wood or even adding a practical countertop. To maximise the storage space available, you could also use boxes or baskets to better organise your kitchenware.
