20 Mid-Century Modern Design Kitchen Ideas

Midcentury design is coming back, and many homeowners are incorporating the look of the middle of the century into their kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms and more. The kitchen is one room in the house where you spend a lot of time. You cook and eat, visit with family and friends, maybe pay bills or work on crafts and kids’ homework in the kitchen. You want your kitchen to be as functional as it is beautiful, and midcentury kitchens can give you both. Here’s more about the midcentury kitchen that might help you when designing yours.

Consider the layout of your home

If you are wanting to incorporate a midcentury kitchen in a newer model home, you may notice some differences between the layout design and need to make adjustments to your midcentury kitchen layout to make it fit. Whereas older, midcentury model homes were designed with their kitchens cornered off in their own separate space away from other living areas, modern style homes are typically more open, with floorplans that extend into other living spaces, such as the living room. You may need to tailor your midcentury kitchen so that it works with your more modern, open floor plan.

Choosing your materials

Laminate and plywood are two major elements used in midcentury kitchens. From countertops to cabinetry, keeping in synch with the materials used of that time, will better set the tone for the look you are trying to achieve. Furniture, such as kitchen tables and chairs are also very common pieces that you’ll find were structurally made of plywood.

Ergo dynamic look and function

Speaking of furniture, this era was not only known for its ergo styled furniture, but its ergo designed kitchens. Designers wanted the kitchen as functional as possible, so they designed kitchens with a certain flow to them for better function. Some of common midcentury kitchen designs included wing-out pantries, soft close drawers and drawer organizer systems.

Open shelving and bins

Many people like to display certain pieces that mean something to them, or are show material and worthy of displaying. This was an era that people liked to dress-up their kitchen and home spaces, which means you might want to consider creating a few open shelves in your kitchen to display your favorite pieces of dishware, or other items. It not only looks smart, but it gives you the flexibility to switch things out and display other items, rotating them as often as you like, which means you won’t get bored with one specific look.
