|Large patterns and brightly |
colored cabinets make this a
classic '70s kitchen
Although the neon carpet probably isn't a modern update for hip homeowners, unlike previous decades, the '70s classic kitchen had an abundance of space and storage to contain the technologies and appliances that were becoming standard amenities. Additionally, built-in desks, beds, and other furniture were introduced during this distinctive decade.
|Notice the extensive built-in bookshelf along the back wall.|
Large kitchens, expansive storage units and built-ins are not unfamiliar territory in the modern household (thanks to the '70s). Although these added spaces are becoming standard among homeowners, the variety and designs are endless.
|Although spacious kitchens began in the '70s, bright white and tons of storage make this modern day kitchen a timeless piece.|
Additionally, paneling used on the walls of family rooms and recreational rooms were a result of the '70s. While most homes are panel-free (from the traditional brown vertical panels), there are still traces of paneling...but with a modern flare.
