Trends in home decor can be short lived. Your typical en vogue item will be passé within a year or three (sometimes, even within months), but kitchens are a bit of an exception. Hardwired to a home, swapping out the style of your kitchen takes a much firmer commitment and, as a result, the aesthetics are slower to evolve. That being said, a 1950s kitchen looked like a 1950s kitchen for the majority of the decade and sometimes into the next. The question is, can you match the decade to the kitchen? Some are pretty easy (hey, we like to hand out a few freebies) but others are tricky. Ready to test your design eye?
