A minimalist kitchen can not only improve the look of your space but also its function. In fact, the term minimalist comes from the concept of simple living.
This design centres on a pared-back approach. To translate it into kitchen design, you need to have fewer things within the room, or at least less on display. For a true minimalist kitchen design you will want countertops and shelves that are clear of clutter and items.
A minimalist kitchen has clean lines, symmetrical patterns, and often features neutral colours. Every aspect of the kitchen works together to create the overall open feel of the space.View Portfolio
What is a Minimalist Kitchen Design?
If you want a minimalist kitchen, you need to declutter the design. Here are some of the factors to consider when designing a minimalist-style kitchen:
- Clean lines. Minimalist design enhances the basic elements of the kitchen. It involves using clean lines for appliances, kitchen cabinets, and other features. By allowing ecocabinets to install sleek or streamlined cupboards, you create a smooth flow of cabinetry without the visual distraction of heavy hardware or embellished panels.
- Minimal accessories. When it comes to external accessories, you will see an absence of them in a minimalist design. Instead, you’ll have an uninterrupted surface without drawer or door handles. Cabinetry may have vertical or horizontal finger rails to replace handles. If there are any handles used in the minimalist kitchen design then they will typically be slimline and unobtrusive.
- Neutral colours. Shades of grey and white help in creating a basic minimalist appearance. Generally, you should avoid using bright colours that will take away from the design concept you are trying to achieve. Space will be brighter due to the neutral tones.
- Futuristic and modern features. Most minimalist kitchens have modern features. They have appliances incorporated or integrated into the cabinetry to minimise interruption of flow. You should also consider hiding other appliances such as the coffee maker and toaster within the cabinetry design.
