WEBvisit – Kitchen design as one of the important spaces in a house must pay attention to various elements. Elements of movement comfort, furniture layout, ease of maintenance, and good lighting and a circulation. Before designing a kitchen, we must know the habits of the “cook” who will use the kitchen; pattern of movement, cooking order, and stature. Indeed, many kitchen furniture has been sold in various stores, but often the furniture is not optimal and less comfortable for the wearer.
Minimalist kitchen design does not only pay attention to all these elements. Minimalist kitchen design must also be able to provide a few pieces of furniture as possible to optimize kitchen functions. A minimalist kitchen design must be clever in getting around the space and furniture and harmonizing it with the surrounding spaces.
This article presents 11 cool kitchen designs for a minimalist home that can inspire you to design a cool minimalist kitchen for your home.
1). Tropical minimalist kitchen
This tropical minimalist kitchen is cool not only from its appearance, but also because it is full of meaning. The design, which is based on Feng Shui, with demands on the size and placement of a specific space, can perform its function optimally. The success of completing the challenge of collaborating Feng Shui with the beauty of design makes this tropical minimalist kitchen extraordinarily cool.
The material for kitchen furniture is dominated by logs as one of the elements that underlie Feng Shui while strengthening the natural tropical impression. The character and color of the wood become a cool and luxurious “point of interest” that balances the “coldness” of a white-dominated space, as well as symbolizing the balance of “ýin and yang” in life.
2). Modern minimalist kitchen
Color choices for minimalist designs are usually dominated by matching monochrome colors, such as white, black, and gray. However, that does not mean it is possible to combine various colors. Dezan Studio proves this through the collaboration of white and light brown wood with light blue and orange as accents in the kitchen space. The display of bright colors with balanced portions makes a minimalist kitchen look cool and unique.
Minimalist kitchen with predominantly white furniture blends cool with natural wood fibers. This clean and natural look reinforces the minimalist impression in this kitchen.
3). Minimalist open-plan kitchen
As one of the characteristics of minimalist design, open-plan space also includes a kitchen in it. Togetherness in the use of space between the kitchen and the dining table must be balanced with a combination of designs that collaborate to unite and complement each other. The use of the same or matching colors and materials can get around the demands of this design.
4). Minimalist pop art kitchen
Although in small portions, this tiny minimalist kitchen can side with the pop art-style sitting room next to it. The combination of these two styles, minimalism and pop art, is reinforced by wall tiles with small plaid patterns on the wall near the sink.
5). Mid-century minimalist kitchen
It turns out that minimalist style can collaborate coolly in mid-century style. The use of wood that displays the color of milk chocolate strengthens its natural character. Although usually minimalist designs are dominated by horizontal and vertical lines with 900 angles, the curved shapes in the corners of the pantry tables and chairs give a simple and beautiful mid-century design character. The ‘simple’ shape of the pantry table also reinforces the minimalist impression.
6). Contemporary minimalist kitchen
Minimalist design with a predominance of horizontal and vertical lines can still be juxtaposed with contemporary styles. The clean white kitchen at Inset House proves it chic and sleek with its symmetrical square cupboards and countertops with pendant lights and contemporary style dining table chairs.
7). Industrial minimalist kitchen
In terms of color selection, minimalist and industrial designs are not much different, both take advantage of monochrome colors in line with black and gray tendencies. Alvin Tjitrowirjo cleverly took advantage of the similarities between these two architectural styles. Metal plates with horizontal stripes and a cooker hood prove how cool these two styles combine.
Materials such as wood and concrete that are rough-finished and deliberately exposed have their charm for minimalist designs that collaborate with industrial styles. Even though it only uses a small space under the stairs, with the ingenious combination of materials and architectural styles, this tiny kitchen can appear neat, unique, and cool.
8). Tiny minimalist kitchen
A kitchen is considered cool not because of its size or expensive furniture, but also as an appreciation of the kitchen’s ability to optimize its function with a neat and unique appearance.
9). Minimalist all-white kitchen
This cool minimalist kitchen comes with an all-white color display. Not only ordinary white, but deliberately designed with a glossy white color that reflects light as if it were a mirror. Lighting and ventilation for the kitchen are obtained from the open space in the middle of the house as a courtyard and swimming pool. Between the kitchen and other spaces are designed with the concept of “open plan” which maximizes minimalist design through the use of little furniture, simplicity, and white dominance. Overall, this minimalist kitchen looks super clean with lighting that is reinforced by the reflection of the light from the furniture.
This minimalist kitchen is cool with a clean white look accented by the horizontal and vertical lines of the kitchen cabinets. The three chrome-plated chandeliers are balanced and provide a minimalist, yet cool “point of interest.”
10). An all-black minimalist kitchen
Who says black is dull, dirty and unattractive? In design, any color can appear attractive thanks to a clever skill. Glossy black color in kitchen cabinets is no less cool than other colors, it has added value from the black character that shows sturdiness.
Junitalia Tan’s small kitchen, which is dominated by black marble color and wooden lines, can appear as a ‘point of interest’ in an all-white corner of the room.
11). Cheerful minimalist kitchen
Minimalist design does not mean minimal colors and monotony. Every design in any architectural style has its ability to appreciate the richness of each character. A minimalist kitchen can still highlight its character in various colors.
Although usually, minimalist designs appear with matching monochrome colors, contrasting colors can still be combined, even become a special attraction.
Always remember, there are no limits in developing designs for spaces with any need. Indeed, there must be an architectural style that forms the basis of the overall design. However, it does not mean that there is no opportunity to collaborate with other architectural styles. You can create your style that is suitable and comfortable for you. Think openly and creatively, make your home design, especially your minimalist kitchen design and cool.
