Replicating designs from movies is a task very few can pull off, let alone be it for your vintage kitchen design.

However, the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ inspired tiles, unpolished wooden flooring, and the big black clock give the kitchen in the feature film a run for its money.

The monochromatic cabinets and kitchen counter do not look plain in this setup, thanks to all of the vibrant colors used.

Not all wild experiments result in disastrous outcomes; such is the case with this vintage kitchen design idea. The bold uses of brick red combined with marble white color make the kitchen look passionate yet calm at the same time.

The deep sink goes easily with the cabinets, not throwing the entire look. The sleek modern appliances balance the entire theme.

Use of charcoal black color combined with the visible brick wall, wine collection, and a carefully chosen wallpaper is a brilliant take on contemporary kitchen styles.

Vintage water taps, classic cabinet handles, and the glazed wooden tops scream the word style. The interior designer should be proud.

Baby blue wall tiles, lime yellow curtains, matching cabinets, and lights give this kitchen an open feel. The use of muted color tones makes the room appear larger than it is, making it perfect for kitchens with limited real estate.

The dark flooring provides the theme a black canvas so that the nursery inspired colors to shine.

  1. A blue, white, red amazement

Ideal for small kitchens. A combo of light shades like blue and white makes the cooking space look wider than it is. The double panel red doors are literally the cherry on top.

Playful, bold, and strong – this kitchen combines both classic and modern tastes without a single note being over-shadowed by the other.

Plain and extensive use of the matte red color stuns the viewer at first, but the effect is lowered due to the use of white here and there.

Polka dot wallpaper stands to hold a fake chicken, a bright red trolley, and white stove knobs truly gift this space a carefree look.

  1. All White, all bright

Shy green shades and a lot of white is what this kitchen is all about. The fruit baskets placed here and there, and the purple lilac beautifully fills in the void which the Victorian styled cabinets and pure white marble tops create.

The vertical blue-white striped rug on the wooden floor stands out from all of the olive green which is going on in this kitchen. The mixed marble countertops, ancient water taps, and braided jute baskets take us straight to the 90’s.

Brown shelves holding the metal containers enhance the vintage feel, and the mustard table wraps up the entire conservative, yet elegant look.

  1. The red brick and blue wave

Honeycomb tiles and waves of blue cabinetry provide this kitchen a cozy feeling.

Light pink wallpapers and white cabinetry makes the room look bright and sweet. The white showcase displays cute pink utensils, going well with the look.
