A minimalist kitchen is coolly confident. It’s not hiding behind frippery. It’s just the sort of space to retire to when you want to be far from the madding crowd. Here’s 10 reasons why we’re making a fuss out of fuss-free kitchens.
A sultry statement-making kitchen keeps the focus on the cabinetry – there’s no clutter to dizzy the eye. Contrast adds interest – the black uppers recede into the wall and get an uplift from wood lowers. A handy pot-filler, tucked neatly against the wall, keeps the ornamentation to a minimum.
Chic and Sculptural
UK-based Hub Kitchens present the very best Italian-inspired kitchens in their Battersea showroom. A fine example is this kitchen, where a sculptural zig-zag island is substantial, yet ethereal, since the area below the cooktop is open.
It’s all about the clean lines in this impeccable space by Toronto’s Trevisana Kitchens. The way the dining table mimics the galley kitchen’s lines is perfection. Eschewing upper cabinetry and concealing the hood vent keeps the space beautifully quiet.
Australian architectural firm Alexander & Co showcases the splendour of letting craftsmanship and materials shine in this spectacular kitchen, located in a gorgeous coastal villa in Sydney.
Tranquil is Timeless
, a design studio based in Melbourne, Australia, used two types of marble for this exquisite kitchen. The seamless application includes honed Carrara marble on the backsplash and honed Grigio Ercolano Basalt on the countertops.
A captivating kitchen with warm industrial flourishes has serious flair. The earthy tonal mix feels really inviting. The island and backsplash features HanStone Canada’s Storm, a quartz slab that feels like it has been excavated from the depths of the earth.
Please take a moment to marvel at this magnificent design by UK-based Custom Fronts, a company that makes cabinet doors to fit IKEA kitchens. The deep amber doors are an organic counterpoint to the backsplash. Adding potted plants, including everyone’s favourite Monstera, brings in a natural, relaxed element.
A masterful rendition of minimalism, this sleek, yet warm kitchen by Australian-based Kate Walker Design has so many perfect details. A shelf skirts across the backsplash, integrating into the hood vent. Eschewing upper cabinets means the stone’s stunning veining gets the spotlight. We also love the punchy black cabinets that’s continued on the door frames – perfection!
