There’s something about the 50s and 60s that continues to capture the imagination even today. Whether it’s the music, the style or something else entirely, this iconic era can be summed up by the bold and beautiful diner style kitchen – think monochrome chic with daring red accents, stand-out breakfast bars, and sleek, high-shine finishes to keep your kitchen rocking around the clock.
High shine black laminate kitchen worktops
The diner style kitchen is a strong look, so it’s important not to overcomplicate things. A black and white kitchen with splashes of daring red here and there is a classic look – why not opt for high-shine black kitchen worktops as a dramatic base?
Our Black Glam Sparkle Gloss 40mm Laminate Kitchen Worktop does what it says on the tin, adding in a bit of glamour to your kitchen. With tiny prismatic glitter specks to give it a lift, this hygienic, affordable and easy-care cheap laminate kitchen worktops are a great choice.
If you prefer to add a touch of contemporary chic to your 1950s diner kitchen, the Black Andromeda Gloss Square Edge Laminate Kitchen Worktop is a brilliant option. Following the monochrome theme, the Andromeda has tiny grey specks and a neat square edge, not to mention an ultra high-shine finish.
Dine in with a beautiful breakfast bar in the kitchen
When it comes to the diner kitchen, the clue’s in the name: it’s great to have somewhere to sit and dine, and a breakfast bar teamed with some high stools is just right.
Why not make a statement with our Black Sparkle Gloss 40mm Laminate Breakfast Bar from just £89.95 including VAT? Available in a two different width options, with varied length available on local delivery, this versatile and glamorous choice could transform your kitchen in an instant.
Or, if the rest of your kitchen is rocking the black and white look, why not make your breakfast bar the place you go wild? Our Ruby Red Sparkle Gloss 40mm Laminate Breakfast Bar would look stunning in a 1950s style kitchen, matching perfectly with all those vintage accessories in bold and beautiful red.
Make a splash in your kitchen
Both of the gorgeous breakfast bars we’ve featured in this post can be paired with matching splashbacks, too, enabling you to finish your vintage diner look off perfectly:
For something a little different, why not take a look at our Flamingo Glass Look Splashback by Akril? This stunning, high-shine splashback offers great protection for the high splash areas of your kitchen, such as the hob and sink zones.
