Diners in the 1950s had a classic charm and unique style that restaurants and homes today still replicate. Use retro wall decorations popularly used in 1950s diners to add a retro flair to the walls of your kitchen or '50s-themed basement. There are four wall decorations commonly associated with diners that you can use inside of your home.

Tin Signs

Tin signs for soft drink beverages, milk shakes and food products were a decoration staple of nearly all 1950s diners. Replica tin signs are available for purchase through many online retailers, and can decorate a kitchen or a 1950s-themed room in your home. Decorate with tin signs in a variety of sizes for an authentic diner look.

Neon Signs

Neon signs were another decoration found on the walls of 1950s diners, and will give your walls an authentic retro feel. These signs normally were composed of words and told customers some of the specialities the diner offered, such as beer, hamburgers and fries. Purchase neon signs online or at home decor and party stores.

Vintage Posters

Use vintage posters of celebrities and bands that were popular during the 1950s to decorate your walls to look like a diner. Celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley will add a nostalgic quality to your decor.

Checkered Tiles

Checker print walls and floors were a common element of decor for 1950s diners. Use small black and white tiles to adorn the bottom half of your walls, with bright red or green paint above the tiles.
