Iconic TV Kitchens: Full House

Wanna talk TV kitchens? You got it, dude!  

If you’ve ever seen Full House, you know Danny Tanner is a classic example of Mr. Mom. This is in part due to necessity after the unexpected passing of his wife, but even more so fueled by his desire for order and cleanliness. Throughout the series, we learn both Danny and Uncle Jesse aren’t afraid to show off their skills in the kitchen, and Uncle Joey, well… he’s been known to whip up a sandwich from time to time. 

Full House aired from 1987 to 1995 and has remained a fan favorite ever since. Although the show is widely known for its cliché life lessons and themes centered around family and growing up, perhaps the most captivating aspect of the series is the way Danny’s brother-in-law, Jesse and his best friend, Joey help in raising his daughters after the loss of their mother. Full House is unique in the way it showcases each of the men’s approaches toward chasing their own ambitions while fulfilling more domestic roles at home. 

In reality, many men take on some or all of these tasks in their day to day lives. Too often, however, TV shows are hesitant to portray men as homemakers. Instead of shying away from this dynamic, the creators of Full House leaned into it and in doing so, gave us both a sitcom and a kitchen for the ages.  

Reflective of design trends in the 80s and 90s, the Tanner’s kitchen features wood paneling on the walls, as well as a wooden table and countertop. A blue accent wall houses their refrigerator and cabinets, all of which are a shade of white that complements both the cooler blues and the warmer wooden tones around the room. Many San Francisco natives opt for kitchens with open floor plans that allow in plenty of light. With their spacious layout and large windows, the Tanner family is no exception to this.    

Although Full House first aired more than 30 years ago, a lot of kitchens today incorporate some of the same aspects. Bold, colorful accent walls and interior wood paneling have made a comeback in recent years, while white cabinets remain a timeless classic. If you’re looking for a pop of color at Kitchen Magic, pairing white cabinets with colored walls or white countertops with colored cabinets have both become increasingly popular design choices. 

From seeing the gang gathered around the kitchen table in the show’s first ever opening credits to the sentimental moments spent around the same table in the very last episode, the Tanner’s kitchen served as a backdrop for life’s ups and downs and some of the family’s best memories.
