Pink pots and pans may give your home a feminine, flirty appeal. Soft, pastel pink pans are available from a variety of manufacturers, with prices dependant on the other features the pans offer. Whether you're searching for one pink pan or an entire set, we'll arm you with the tools you'll need to get in the pink in your kitchen.
The majority of pink pans come in a baby pink tone. There are dusty pink options, but the majority of pans are available in simple pink hues. Small pink sauté pans are available for under $20 USD, but larger stockpots with sturdy lids can cost close to $50 USD. Some manufacturers donate a portion of the sale of pink pans to breast cancer research, which is a quick and easy way for you to help women with the disease. Look for the designation on the box, or call the manufacturer before you buy, to ensure that you're buying pans from manufacturers that participate in this program.
During the 1950s and 1960s, many manufacturers produced pans in baby pink colors, and many of those pans are available in antique shops and on the Internet. While it may be difficult to find a perfectly matching set, retro pans do have styling features and color in common, and are sure to look sweet together.
Decorating with pink can be slightly risky. Add too much pink in all one tone, and your kitchen will quickly look like something only Barbie could love. The key is to shake up your pink choices. If you already have pink appliances, as many retro homeowners do, consider painting your walls a contrasting color, such as baby blue, to offset the expanse of pink. If you don't already have pink in your kitchen, consider adding one pink appliance, such as a mixer, to help your pink pans blend in.
