Create A Steampunk Kitchen

by paperfacets

Showcasing online products for starting the steampunk look in the kitchen. You will be surprised what could be incorporated into this genre.

Here I go again. Dreaming about the kitchen I wished I had. After 30 years using mine I want a new look; a new domain to work and play in. The couple in this house has pretty much come to the conclusion about staying here for retirement. Steampunk decor will work fine in this area of the house.

My steampunk home decor pages focus on affordable items for each room in the house. The steampunk kitchen is another matter. The kitchen is the most used room in the house and your investment for new appliances and cabinetry will serve you for a long time.

You have noticed when guests are over that many times the center of the party is in the kitchen. These ideas for a new kitchen may be higher priced than you like to imagine, but the kitchen is the high enjoyment room, whether you are fixing a weekday meal, or making drinks for guests or popcorn for movie night; a steampunk dream kitchen would be wonderful.

Shop for the Range First

Steam decor can be seen in new designs for the kitchen, or the looks can go with vintage and back to the Victorian era where steampunk resides. Here are a few examples. 

Mod-Vic is a decor that new manufactures are designing for. The Heartland range is striking and can be the center piece of the whole kitchen. Put artist's pieces around the major appliances. 

Go with hot colors and stainless steel in the vintage look stoves. The La Cornue has the design you can consider for the steampunk kitchen. I would like this in my plain 80's kitchen. Would do a lot for it.

Start with a La Cornue and work around it for the remainder of your decor.

Second Focus for This Room Should Be the Sink

I want the farmer's sink for my new kitchen. A deep wide sink with no divisions so pots do not get banged up. I like the smooth front because I lean against the counter while washing and many tee shirts get holes on the bully region.

Below is an example of the farmer's sink in copper. This looks very much like the genre. 

This type of sink is also called the apron sink.

Ice Box

The refrigerator is a bit more problematic. I do not see anything that will fit our goal here on the general market. One will have to get creative and purchase a good appliance that suits all your needs inside, such as capacity, drawers  etc.

Get the cheapest exterior treatment and put your own facing on front. I have seen other appliances with an option of wood front and to follow their method of attaching it could be used as a template.

Kitchen Hardware

For our turn of the century look I think we need to include hardware.

Copper pans hung from the a pot rack can be inexpensive addition if you already have the copper pans. Stainless steel would look okay, as well.

Revisiting your wizzley caused me to remember something that I find so compelling about the steampunk kitchen.

Me too, I deem as particularly important the sink area. I hadn't thought about an apron or farmer's sink before. In particular, I like the copper look.

Would you happen to know how easy it is to clean, and what would be the best materials most likely to leave it scratch-free and shining?

paperfacets, This is the article that I hoped you'd write after reading your steampunk bathroom write-up! What do you recommend for the large-sized forks, knives and spoons that can hang alongside the hardware?
