Include A Bar. Whether it’s a built-in or a bar cart; a bar for mixing drinks is a nostalgic way to bring back the 50’s. Fill your bar with vintage glasses, expensive liquors and of course a cocktail shaker. A bar cart can be wheeled from room to room for parties and entertaining, and is the perfect accessory for every mid-century modern home. You will certainly feel like you stepped back in time as you sip your martini – shaken not stirred.
Unfortunately, most of these elusive mid-century jewels have all been purchased (there are only so many left to go around). On the other hand, there are some bonuses to living in our off-the-rack homes with electricity that is up to code. How about we meet in the middle by taking our ready-made home out of its boring box and turn it into a mid-century architectural dream. Here are 10 ways to take your home back in time (without living in a time capsule).
These can include changing windows and doors, replacing walls with ceiling beams to create an open concept, and refacing or replacing fireplaces. If your project includes these in-depth changes, you’ll need to research local building codes and permitting requirements. Changes that include electrical or plumbing work may require working with a licensed professional under special permits. If your interior changes impact your exterior design, also check with your homeowners association to ensure you are staying within regulations.
