Contemporary/Minimalist Scandinavian Kitchens
Modern Scandinavian aesthetics is all about minimalist and contemporary styles, it's stripped down beauty with sleek cabinets, simple metal or glass pendant lamps, neutral tile backsplashes, touches of wood and metal. Such kitchens are usually done in neutrals like grey, beige, off-white, creamy and even pure white but you may also see some muted colors like grey, graphite grey, light blue, green or slate grey. You may go for a brick wall, butcher block countertops, leather pulls, contrasting surfaces and other catchy touches; you may highlight your backsplash with contrasting grout and add black or graphite grey for some drama. Built-in lights will help you see and find whatever you need and built-in appliances will keep your look sleek. If you want a catchy idea, add a rustic or vintage table and mismatching chairs to the eating zone.
