            Minimal Kitchen Ideas

            From sheen-free surfaces to neutral palettes, minimal kitchen ideas demonstrate how to create a cooking space that is contemporary and clutter-free. The mantra of this look is to have less on show and include as much useful storage as possible, leading to a highly edited room that is as organised as it is sleek. The simplistic detail of minimal kitchen designs means there is still the opportunity to add character, whether it is through colour or pattern, to introduce a sense of individuality. Above all, choosing clean lines and “invisible” elements will put the pared-back philosophy into action, and promote calmness to inspire peaceful living.

             

            • 1. Blanched brightness

              Stay true to the low-key look of minimal design by choosing white cupboards, like  @frontline_construction, who used this staple neutral to form a clutter-free format.
            • 2. Forgo features

              Strip a room down to its bare essentials with slab door fronts, which remove unnecessary detail to create a harmonious environment that is easy to relax in.
            • 3. Smooth it out

              Appeal to all the senses by choosing a matt finish for units. Known for its light-softening abilities it will soothe any mood by dialling down glare and distractions. 
            • 4. One wall wonder

              Keep cooking areas to one zone, like @thirty_design has done with their single-wall floorplan, for a straightforward setup that blends into the background. 
            • 5. Hide away handles

              Opt for a grip-free, door-front when adding colour to a minimal kitchen design for an uninterrupted run of colour with understated lines that elongate a room.
            • 6. Improve ergonomics

              @thehousethatjenbuilt married form and function with this minimal idea by fitting internal drawers housed behind a door, reducing lines and increasing storage.
            • 7. Think thin

              Pick slimline counters in a hard-wearing, compact laminate construction to trim down detail with an ultra-thin profile, while making a space low-maintenance.
            • 8. Capture character

              Bring a burst of personality to a subtle, minimally-inspired interior by featuring a decorative border in a statement hue or striking geometric pattern.
            • 9. Clutter-free cooking 

              Ensure a streamlined design by choosing built-in cooking equipment, like @morton_maison_makeover, to improve access for all ages and stages of life.
            • 10. Concealed cleaning

              Disguise a washing area by opting for an under-mount sink, which sits beneath the surface to maintain a contemporary and understated aesthetic.
