Converted refrigerator to icebox fits in with the style of the house.

Do it yourself – Antique Icebox.

Do you live in a vintage home? If you do, you’re in the right place to take that extra step in making your kitchen something your guests will not forget.

Is your refrigerator contemporary? That’s great if you have a state-of-the-art kitchen. A contemporary refrigerator will fit in well! For those with a modern kitchen, the other rooms in the house must also be contemporary to continue the harmonic flow and feel as you move from room to room. This does not stop with the interior. The exterior architecture of the house should also be contemporary to have a house that “works together”. . . . inside and out.

The secret is to maintain the flow. Viewing your house from the exterior should set your mind up for “an experience” as you enter the home and move from room to room. That same feeling should continue right into the kitchen.

This harmonic balance works the same way for a vintage house.

Your guests enter your home through an old fashioned porch.

They then see a grand old staircase and period antiques in your parlor.

But, when they enter your kitchen and see your modern refrigerator, it’s like waking up from a dream!

Your kitchen may not be perfectly authentic, but hopefully it will carry the same flavor as the other rooms.

Your kitchen says – cozy warm nostalgia.

Your modern refrigerator says – cold and contemporary!

But don’t worry, this problem can easily be fixed.

Most modern refrigerators (except those with cold water dispensers that are not flush in the refrigerator door) can be changed to look like an icebox or vintage refrigerator from the 1880’s – 1930’s.

Yes, you can still have fresh lettuce and cold beer without having to worry about remembering to empty the ice pan. And believe me – your guests will be more impressed with your “refrigerator turned Icebox” than with all the priceless antiques in your parlor.

As shown on the My Restoration page of this site, I converted the appearance of my modern refrigerator into an Antique Icebox. If you have not yet seen this, click here for a look.
