Custom Cabinets Picayune | What Is Vintage

What an interesting afternoon it has been! Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring would like to welcome our readers to another issue of Custom Cabinets Picayune. The cold weather thankfully has not been as threatening as the weather people predicted. South Mississippi is still up and running which is way more than we can say for the north. Let’s keep our prayers and thoughts going to those states under dangerous freezes and winter storms. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring is a family business that loves people and we want to say that the states experiencing these winter storms are in our thoughts. You are not forgotten.


As far as our issue of Custom Cabinets Picayune, we have been talking about themes and coordinating them. Today we are going to talk about another theme: Vintage. What exactly is a vintage theme? There are many questions and theories surrounding the word “vintage.” But what does vintage mean in the home remodeling world? Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring has heard and uses vintage as a description for many of our products. For instance, we have custom cabinets and pre-fab cabinets with a vintage flare about them. There are flooring options that would work with a rustic vintage look in a home. Check out our article on rustic themes and rustic glam themes.

Subjective Vintage

Vintage can be a way to describe a theme used to remodel a room. What Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring like to tell their customers is that vintage is subjective. What vintage means among different people varies. Some people feel that vintage is leaning towards a rustic type of theme whereas other people feel that vintage depicts the literal sense of the word which is old and aged. Depending on the individual vintage could range from one description to the next.

Wall Color and Flooring

One thing, Custom Cabinets Picayune, that you won’t hear too often when talking about vintage is it often pertaining to wall color and floors. On occasion flooring will have some vintage element to them, but they are not, in theory, vintage. For instance, there are types of flooring styles that mimic those from years past which can add to a specific look in a room that is from the particular era the home owner is trying to replicate. Wall colors follow the same pattern. They are not vintage in theory, but certain wall colors were popular in a certain era and some were not.

Details Of Vintage

To create a vintage theme in a room or home details are really the focus area. Floor style and wall color will help, but that is not what is going to set off the vintage theme. Furniture and decoration is going to be the focus when it comes to vintage. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring will make custom furniture for their customers. The time frame for completion varies with each piece. Unfortunately Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring does not sell decorations. However, we do suggest that if you want to keep up with a strong vintage theme to look for pieces that match the era.


Most home owners choose antique furniture for the their vintage themed room. Whereas others prefer creating their own antique furniture. With the current vintage fad traveling the home remodeling world finding antique shops with a large selection of furniture should not be too difficult. Depending on the piece you could wind up paying a pretty penny. However, it is possible to take what we would call modern furniture and distress it to make it look more antique. Another option is going to wholesale shops to buy an unfinished piece of furniture for cheap and distress it yourself. Either way you choose will work in your vintage themed home.


If you are looking for vintage decoration it should be an easy task. Vintage decorations are even more abundant in retail stores these days than the furniture. People can’t seem to get enough of the old days. Rugs, frames, and curtains–those and such would be your vintage decor. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring suggest to go sparingly on the decorations. Vintage decor has a tendency to overwhelm a room more so than other types of decoration.


There is a part of theme development that not many people take into consideration. Hardware can make a big difference in the look of your room in a subtle way. The eye will register the room as themed while not becoming overwhelmed by the details. Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring offer a selection of hardware in our showroom. If our customers don’t find what they are looking for in our show room then Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring has a catalog for our customer to browse through. If they find something they like then Wild’s Cabinets and Flooring can order it and have it sent to our store in Poplarville, Ms.
