As we said in the kitchen introduction page, few original Deco kitchens survived time, few were photographed, a kitchen was often a servants room &/or basic. A quick trawl of the web will reveal how few Deco style kitchens have been produced over the last 20 years ( but so many that have been tagged Art Deco & have nothing to do with the style). The upshot being there is little to base the design of a new kitchen on, if you want to make it look authentic Deco.
As part of an on going project we are drawing on all aspects of Deco design to produce a series of new Deco kitchen designs. There is the odd kitchen designer or studio that have produced a one off deco style kitchen over the years, but no one specialises in this.
But you are in luck, I am a kitchen/furniture designer with a love of Deco style. So we are going to present you with lots, and I mean lots, of Deco style kitchens designs. These are packed full of ideas for new Deco kitchens. We can adapt the designs infinitely, to whatever size or shape of room you have & whatever you want to achieve.
We used photos like the ones above & below as a starting point for new Deco kitchen designs. Some of the best period Deco furniture made use of expensive wood veneers, in walnut/maple etc. But while individual pieces of furniture in these veneers looks great a whole kitchen might be too much for some people.
So we started looking at kitchens combining Deco elements with some great use of colour, as well as woods. Miami colour schemes sprung to mind for this purpose. You can click here to see lots of different colour options for these designs.
These 6 designs show a basic progression of ideas, in 6 different colours.
They all show stepped wall units to achieve a classic Deco silhouette, plus
a matching stepped splashback. A definate nod to Paul Frankl. The handleless
units give the kitchen a more Streamlined look - as shown in the 2 photos above.
The top 2 show a 60cm oven, but different wall colours. A different wall colour can change the whole look of a room.
The lower 4 designs show a 90cm oven / range, which matches the width of
the stepped splashback.
Then we started adding some speed stripes to the wall units, which really gives the whole a stronger Deco look.
Now we start to have fun mixing up the colours. The top LH design has a
great Miami colour scheme. The bottom LH design has a very nice 2 tone
effect. The 2 RH designs just add some options.

Further design variations. The top 2 show a run of kitchen units with a sink added to the run. The wall units have been double stepped with added speed lines. This makes for a dramatic outline. The lower designs show an offset stepped outline above the hob/oven area.
