Vintage kitchen...practical or just pretty?
I love the look of vintage kitchens, especially those circa 1900-1930. There's a Direct Action gas range with multiple ovens in this issue of Country Victorian magazine (p. 63) that I would LOVE to have in my old farmhouse.
Vintage kitchens have such a wonderful lived-in feel to them, truly timeless. Love the wooden table for an island and the smaller work areas, with more storage, like walk-in pantries. Maybe even a butler's pantry...
Does anyone have a vintage kitchen? Does it work well for you? Would you do it again? Hoosier cabinets and freestanding appliances, over everything built-in and streamlined. While I love having running water, electricity, and indoor plumbing (believe me, I don't take them for granted with the well/septic and power outages) I wish that more retro-style appliances were available. Agas are nice, but I would love to find something like the picture in the magazine :)
