Picking the Best Retro Microwave
If you’re a retro-loving home owner, a retro microwave is the perfect partner for your kitchen. A cream or pastel color is a great choice as well as bright oranges and reds.
Stainless steel, black, and white microwaves are not ideal if you’re going for a retro kitchen. Finally, our top tip is to buy a microwave from a brand that has matching kitchen equipment like kettles and toasters for a complete, coordinated look.
