Considered the heart of most homes, the kitchen is one of the most used rooms. If you really look at the steampunk style and want to incorporate it into your home decor, there are several ways you can tweek or change your kitchen to make you feel as if you have been transported to a different time or place.

Whether you want a full kitchen maker or just want to add a few steampunk elements to a modern setting, there are several ways you can enchant your kitchen and feel as though you live in a storybook.

If you have wall space next to your pantry, consider installing a sliding barn door instead of a traditional pantry door. You can find barn doors that look old and rustic that will set the tone for the rest of the room. In fact, you can use decorative clavos (rounded nails) and hinges on your pantry door as well as other cabinet doors throughout your kitchen.

Inside your pantry, line drawers and shelves with Victorian-style paper to add a little more authenticity to the room. You can also use lining paper that resembles old newsprint. You can also paint steampunk icons on shelves or your walls as an alternative.

Functionally speaking, you will need to store food in your pantry. Where you can, use safe-for-food canisters or boxes to store four, sugar, sauce packs, etc. You can also transfer spices into an older style.
