Balance the matt look with timber or timber-effect floors and counters to add soft texture to a space. Opt for wood grain in a pale shade to keep the room light and bright. Parallel rows of wall and base units will offer plenty of space to store essentials close to hand, while adding linear design features that draw the eye. Keep equipment flush and integrated to maintain a minimalistic look. Add decorative trims beneath counters to accentuate the horizontal lines. Choose a trim in brushed aluminium to complement the pared-back style.
