Minimalist kitchens are guided by the same concepts behind designing modern or contemporary homes. Simplicity is key in either design aesthetic and it should, likewise, be your main goal if you want to go down the minimalist route. Perhaps you’ve always wondered about moving towards minimalism but didn’t know how to start, so here are some guidelines from our kitchen remodeling expert team at The Kitchen Store to help you.
You can use black and white throughout your kitchen if you want a contemporary approach. To add a bit of color, go with a solid, earthy hue instead, as most modern homes designs do. Choose fittings and hardware that highlight your chosen palette too.
Back to Basics
Minimalism is associated with clean lines and surfaces. Floor plans of minimalist homes are often rectilinear and interior designs stick to the use of basic shapes; again, espousing the idea of simplicity throughout. When we do kitchen cabinet refacing for minimalist kitchens at The Kitchen Store, for instance, we recommend sticking to uniform-looking, flat cabinet doors and drawer fronts with minimal hardware.
In a minimalist kitchen, there is a place for everything and everything has a purpose. You can achieve these concepts by utilizing efficient cabinetry. Keep appliances and cooking equipment behind custom cabinets. Fit drawers to hold only the most essential items and get rid of everything else. You can mix in some open shelving units to serve as both a storage for commonly used items and a design focal point.
