Sunny Yellow Retro Kitchen Traditional Kitchen, San Diego

For a client with an enthusiastic appreciation of retro design, this sunny ode to kitchens of the past is a cheerful and comforting retreat for today. The client wanted a kitchen that creatively expressed her fun, unconventional taste while providing all the modern conveniences of a contemporary home.

Space was borrowed from an existing office to provide more open area and easier navigation in the kitchen. Bright, optimistic yellow sets the tone in the room, with retro-inspired appliances in buttery yellow chosen as key elements of the design. A generous apron-front farm sink gleams with clean white enameled cast iron and is outfitted with a rare retro faucet with spray and scrub brush attachments. Black trim against the yellow ceramic tile countertops defines the kitchen’s lines. Simple maple cabinetry painted white with black ceramic knobs provides a modern level of storage.

Playful positioning of contrasting tiles on the floor presents a modern, quirky interpretation of the traditional checkerboard pattern in this classic kitchen with an original point of view.

I used resources from RetroRenovation to find my 4x4 yellow tiles and maroon surround for my eventual kitchen remodel. It all started here!

Desperate for yellow countertops - I am searching high and low for yellow countertops, but all I can find is laminate? Any ideas where I can find yellow like the ones pictured here? Or quartz? Or other non-laminate material?

Ah - I see! So it's actually a tile countertop. I couldn't really tell with my bad eyes. Really cool idea. It's super hard to find a stone counter in yellow:)

Hi - Thank you for your question. The rounded shelves on the end are actually a cabinet that comes with rounded shelves already installed. This is not something that can be bought in a store. It comes from Diamond cabinetry line and it is called a wall quarter round end shelf.
