This dusky blue mid century kitchen didn’t just look pretty. When it was built in the mid-1960s, it offered the most modern home conveniences available at the time.

For starters, it had an over-the-sink pass-through to the dining room, which made serving meals a breeze.

That 47-inch-high shelf and planter separating the retro two rooms could hide kitchen clutter when the decorative blue plastic panels were pushed closed.

Dishes and glassware were stored on shelves directly behind the dishwasher, and could be reached from either side. Sliding panels kept everything clean and dust-free.

A small extra refrigerator next to the dishwasher, close to both the sink and the dining room, could hold salads, beverages and desserts.

Drawers held cutlery, linens, paper supplies, and salad utensils. Larger utensils, non-refrigerated vegetables and fruits could be housed on shelves behind the door.

The high countertop above the dishwasher offered extra workspace when needed, while the maple cutting board could slide out for use elsewhere in the kitchen. The shallow box behind the sink kept detergents and cleansers out of the reach of children.

Unusual white teardrop-shaped drawer and cabinet door pulls offered a touch of personal style.

Easy-care materials here included a dark green nylon kitchen carpeting, and plastic-coated acoustical ceiling panels that hushed noise and wiped clean.
