Add a touch of Scandinavian style!

When it comes to adding a touch of Scandinavian flair to your kitchen there are three words that come to mind – minimalist, modern, and effortless! While simple, Scandinavian design oozes real wow-factor. It’s interesting, bright and about as fresh as you can get – an ideal combination for your kitchen space. But how do you go about creating the look? That’s exactly what we’ll be exploring in today’s blog…

White space

The key colour in Scandinavian design is bright white. Often paired with a neutral colour palette, made up of white and calming, natural tones, the whole feel of the space is minimalist and simple beauty.

Natural texture

While a white-themed colour palette adds style and sophistication to your space, it can look a little clinical if you don’t mix any interesting textures in. Textures, both natural and manmade, really do make a kitchen design special and when it comes to Scandinavian design natural materials are king. Add some warmth and interest to your kitchen design with natural oak doors or an oak kitchen table. Granite is another material that works well with the colour palette. For those aspects you want to keep white – such as your cupboard doors or worktops – opt for Corian. The beauty of Corian is that it’s available in a huge range of colours, including white, and can be used to create one seamless worktop surface with a beautiful finish.

Complementary flooring

Earthy, natural wooden flooring will always stand the test of time and is perfect for this type of kitchen. While the rustic or white-washed look looks great, you can also opt for a laminate finish if maintenance, durability and cleaning are a high priority. Light-finished wooden floors are a great way to complement the white, bright décor, while bolder colours such as dark grey flooring can add an interesting focal point to your kitchen space.

Functional and practical

While the overall design of a Scandinavian kitchen may be simple, the details that lie within the furnishings are actually rather clever. Often functional and practical, furnishings offer hidden storage options. These blend seamlessly into the design of the kitchen and offer all the convenience and accessibility of conventional storage. What’s more, with optimal storage and a clever layout, you’ll also be able to incorporate that all-important social space into your kitchen too.

Bright and airy

The final characteristic of a Scandinavian kitchen is its bright and airy feel. Good lighting to key to creating this atmosphere, so make sure you make the most of your kitchen windows. Avoid heavy curtains, nets or pulled-down blinds and let as much light into the room as possible. Under-cupboard lighting also adds bursts of light when you need it most, while industrial-style pendant lights are a great way of adding style and lighting to the social areas that need it most.
