There’s a lot to think about when you’re shopping for new kitchen appliances, and rightly so. After all, you’re investing in products that you’ll be looking at and using pretty much every day.
Choosing heavy duty items such as fridge-freezers, washing machines, toasters and kettles generally involves searching for appliances which are durable, affordably priced, efficient and reliable, and there’s no shortage of online charts that collate and compare this information for you. However, there’s no such shortcut to help you make the right choices when it comes to style.
Rather than falling for the latest fads in style, shape and material, many modern consumers are choosing the vintage look. Retro look kitchen appliances offer soft-edged curves ñ which scientists claim tend to stimulate the brain and make people feel happy ñ in contrast to the harsh corners and sharp lines of modern designs.
By opting for electrical products which embody the glamour of a previous age it’s possible to get the best of two worlds.

The ongoing popularity of retro-styled appliances is easy to understand. They represent a period in time where individuality and fun were important, an epoch where being freed from ‘rules’ moved design into a world of mix and match, and importantly, encouraging unique and personalised expression of style. Twenty-first century consumers continue to appreciate these features in contemporary versions of timeless classics.
Choosing retro-styled kitchen appliances allows you to express your individual taste, all the while safe in the knowledge that you have a timeless product.
