Retro-Kitchen-Step-StoolsRetro kitchen decor doesn’t need to be decorative only. These retro stools make fun accessories, but are useful in your kitchen as well. Extra seating is one thing, but they work great for reaching those higher up places as well.

Step Stools in Retro Colors

No matter what color scheme you have chosen for your retro kitchen, there is a step stool that will work with it. Neutral colors like white, tan or black are great for any color scheme. But you might also choose a step stool in your accent color, like the rich red one featured here.

Functional Retro Step Stools

Of course, we love to have our decorating accessories also work for us in the kitchen. Retro step stools are perfect. Yes, they are great furniture pieces to add to your decor. Remembering my own grandmother’s kitchen with her step stool is what caused me to get one for my own kitchen.

As a child, I loved pulling it over beside my grandmother and helping her mix up the cookie batter. Now that I’m the grandmother, I enjoy it when my own granddaughter dons one of my big retro aprons, pulls the retro step stool beside me, and helps mix the cookie batter. She will have fond memories of being with gramma.

Chrome Accents for the Retro Look

One of the great parts of the retro look is the Chrome accents. Look at the way each of these step stools has those kind of accents. That’s a big part of what makes them look retro. When you combine a step stool with your table and chairs, you will have a much more complete theme for your kitchen.

Other accessories, wall decor and functional kitchen items in a retro look with give you a complete effect. All without a terrible expense to redo your kitchen. Of course, your kitchen table and chairs will be your biggest expense, but the little extras like a step stool will add so much to your retro kitchen theme.

    I have always love these chair step stools! Since I am short, I actually require step stools in every room and this particular style also gives me an awesome seat.

    I have a retro style step stool! And, for the same reason you mention above. I remember pulling it over to help Mamaw snap beans, bake and do other fun things in the kitchen. It’s a great reminder of wonderful memories!
