8 Reasons To Love Retro Appliances

Like any good trend, what's old is new again. This time, in the form of avocado-colored refrigerators and "old-fashioned" mustard yellow sinks.

Yep, "retro appliances" are back and better (or at least brighter) than ever. And surprisingly, they aren't likely to make you cringe like they once did. In fact, we're ready to let them back into our homes -- and, more specifically, our kitchens -- like they never went out of style.

Not convinced? These candy-colored appliances make the case for themselves.
