Our top 5 minimalist kitchen design tips

minimalist kitchen design

Do you admire the minimalist home? The ‘less is more’ way of thinking when it comes to kitchen interior design is becoming ever more popular. Minimalist kitchen design is king of clutter free homes, and with a decluttered home comes a decluttered mind.

So, what is minimalist kitchen design?

Stripping your kitchen of its unnecessary items and clutter alone doesn’t make your kitchen minimalist. In the interior design world, minimalism means so much more. It’s about achieving an atmosphere and style that is simple and uncomplicated. The design helps you to make the most of the traditional functions and be efficient with the space you have available – however big or small.

1. The classic monochrome look

The ever classic black and white kitchen is the most popular colour scheme for a modern, minimalist kitchen design. The clean lines and sharp colour palette give the illusion of a cleaner, wider space.

2. A splash of colour

Minimalist doesn’t have to be boring. You don’t have to stick to black, white or brushed metal. Whilst it’s not a good idea to go mad with colour, you can certainly incorporate one feature colour on a wall on throughout kitchen accessories – purple, red and blue are popular options.

3. Key appliances

Be realistic about your appliances and what you actually need. A lot of modern appliances we integrate into our kitchens at the Kitchen Design Centre are built into your workspace, helping to give a clean, modernistic look. They also often have multi uses – meaning instead of having two or three items to fit into your kitchen workspace, you can have one, with all the integrated features.

4. Clever lighting

It’s the light within your space that really make the difference. Pendant lighting, concealed lighting and LED strip lights are all popular types of lighting that can become very useful elements for your minimalist interior design.

5. Clean lines

When it comes to buying furniture for your kitchen, think about items that have clean lines. For example, when it comes to cupboards, choose ones with small, thin handle lays on the top of the door – a style that produces less visual clutter. Alternatively, for an ultra minimalist look, you could opt to go handle free, with your cupboard drawer fronts constructed with integrated handles that don’t break up the final finish.
