Few other sitcoms have had such an appropriate name.  With three “dads,” three kids, and Kimmy Gibbler barging in all the time, what else could you call this but a “full house!”

Danny Tanner’s kitchen exemplifies several 1980’s interior design trends.  First, let’s talk about that flooring.  Wall-to-wall vinyl.  Fairly inexpensive and relatively durable.  We have to wonder what could be hiding underneath!

Second, and maybe most obvious is the “country style” look that first started to appear in the early part of the 80s. We see this trend on full display in Full House with checkered chair cushions, “homey” -looking plates and knick-knacks hanging on the walls, and knotty pine as far as the eye can see.  This style of paneling first became popular in the early 1950s, and could easily be of that vintage, but it certainly fits right into a “country” theme.

Last, but not least, the “open kitchen” concept is worth noting, which first made its debut in the earlier part of the decade. The Tanner residence does not seem to have a formal dining space, instead all meals are taken at the large kitchen table.  It’s interesting to note that although the kitchen and dining areas have become melded together, this space is still closed off from the living room.  One could argue that once everyone saw how well removing this wall worked, it was only a matter of time before that last wall came down and the “open floor plan” became a staple of modern home design.

Finally, let’s all take a minute to appreciate the fact that fake wood-grain laminate counter tops have gone the way of the dodo.

Before closing out this post, we’d be remiss not to mention the new Netflix show, “Fuller House.”  Although it’s still the same ol’ familiar place, there have clearly been several updates to the kitchen set.  There easy ones to spot include the appliances and tile back splash, but we need your help to ID all of the other updates.  Please lease a comment below!  We’ll compile all of your answers and update this post with a list of all the differences.  Thanks!
