Scandinavian Kitchen Design and Inspiration
Scandinavian design is defined by simplicity, minimalism and functionality. The style emerged in the 20th century and grew in popularity in the 50s in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland. The great thing about the Scandinavian style is that it’s achievable in any budget. The simplicity and minimalism aspect of the design allows home owners to brighten up their homes at an affordable price. So where do you start? Here are some Scandinavian kitchen design ideas and inspiration to freshen up your kitchen.
White or Light Colours
One of the key design feature of a Scandy kitchen is the colour scheme which is typically white or light colours. This creates a fresh, calm, clean and airy feel in the kitchen. Transform your cabinets with a lick of paint or pick up the light colours in furniture (stools, chairs and/or tables) and your splash back.
Incorporate natural materials, like timber into the kitchen. A wooden table, chairs or kitchen crockery is the easiest way to bring in the natural material without completely renovating. Stick with lighter timber for the Scandinavian style.
Textures and Patterns
Incorporate texture and art into the kitchen. Brick walls, tiles, textured ornaments and contemporary art offers interest and edge against the sleek Scandy design.
Minimalist pendant lighting
Mismatched and/or alternative looking pendant or lamp lighting completed the Scandinavian kitchen design look. READ: Kitchen Lighting Tips.
