    I have a pink 1950’s St Charles kitchen and wish to update it to an aqua blue with glass countertops. Wonderful, post with great ideas – love to see the 1950’s.

    Surprisingly, I LOVE the metal cabinets – they clean easily, hold everything and fit well in our vintage home. The stove/oven work great and except for the outdated countertops and backsplash and the builder’s grade modern fridge, I love this kitchen and wish to rehab it and update it.

    I have a 1940 or 1950 Caloric Wall Oven and Counter top stove. I am getting my kitchen remodeled and looking to sell it very quickly. Any ideas?

    I havea “Universal” gas range my parent purchased in 1952. I desperately need the range burner pans for this specific range.
    I am not finding much information on “universal” could they have been made by another company?

    My house has the pebblestone floor! Unfortunately the genius who owned it before us laid new subfloor over it and poorly installed generic 12″ ceramic tile. Only 4″ of the floor shows at the threshold. So sad.

    Looking for picture/sample/catalog image of Armstrong “Royelle Gray” linoleum from 1953-1954. If you have anything you would make my day!

    Hi all,
    I live in lower CT and am not the handiest of people. I have an intact 1952 Youngstown kitchen that could use facelifting. My main worry is the sink-Mullins Electric Sink combo. The dishwasher isn’t operational, which is fine by me. Does anyone have experience with removing the old unit and replacing with the “sink-only” Youngstown drainboard unit? The width is about 54″. OR could a countertop be fitted over the dishwasher somehow?
    Another thing I could really use is a recommendation of a contractor who wouldn’t roll his/her eyes at the prospect of facelifting this kitchen vs. gutting it. Thank you.

    I actually have that 1950’s Crosley Kitchen in White with maroon counter tops (your picture has the green counter tops). It covers 3 walls of a 10′ x 10′ kitchen both upper and lower cabinets with sink, electric stove, and refrigerator. I have two of the lower corner units with the carousal round shelves. it used to be setup in my business break room but now is stacked out in the garage behind my cars.

    I’m trying to find written descriptions of vintage 1950s kitchen decor for ideas as I’m blind and pictures don’t help 😛
