A mid-century modern kitchen remodel has been selected by Houzz as one of the top design trends for 2016.  Kitchens circa 1950 were all about pastel colors and appliances with rounded corners and chrome trim.  Taking your kitchen back in time might not be the way to go, but incorporating elements from this era will definitely give your home a unique and fun design.


A retro refrigerator can look incredible in a modern kitchen, if you can find one and pay the hefty price for restoration. Big Chill offers the look of a retro refrigerator with all of the modern amenities of today’s refrigerators. Our Original Size Big Chill retro refrigerator has a classic pivoting handle and stamped metal body, just like they used to make them.

Dishwashers are one of our favorite inventions of the modern age (and retro dishwashers are even more amazing). They save us time and ensure our dishes and utensils are sparkly clean. Big Chill thinks that dishwashers should look pretty, too. We want dishwashers to see their time in the spotlight, because they deserve it. With Big Chill, you can buy a state-of-the-art complete retro dishwasher or get the ever-popular dishwasher panel. Either way, let that beautiful retro dishwasher shine!
