5 Pretty Scandinavian-Inspired Kitchensby: Cielo Anne Calzado
If you’d look at different interior styles, each has a defining element that makes it endearing to homeowners. The industrial look gives a space a raw yet edgy vibe, the rustic style adds an undeniable warmth to a space, while the vintage approach perfectly blends second-hand finds with a few modern touches.
Aside from these crowd favourites, the Scandinavian style is also one of the popular choices. Known for its clean lines, crisp look, and functionality—it can be the perfect style for your kitchen, too. Not convinced? Here are five beautiful kitchens and what you can learn from each:
To create an efficient space, maximize the available area by turning nooks, crannies, and awkward corners into smart storage solutions. In this kitchen, the owner and designer opted for a built-in niche to hold the microwave while slim open shelves take up the space between the wall and cabinets. This is the perfect spot for jars of ingredients and even dinnerware.
This style is also known to make use of natural light. If your cooking corner is near the window, keep it open and let sunlight stream into the space. Liven up the windowsill with a few potted greens or even herbs in cute planters.
Keep your kitchen clutter-free by having well-selected decor that add character to the space. Take inspiration from this compact area with a few prints on shelves. You can stick to one to three pieces in similar or neutral colours. To add hints of colour, you can also opt for accessories in earth tones.
Want to experiment with tiles? Aside from mosaic backsplashes and subway tiles, you can work with a herringbone pattern. This can serve as an accent wall and make your cooking space more interesting.
To keep your space from looking to plain, wooden touches can inject a little warmth. Choose wooden shelves and if your budget permits, you can also have wooden countertops. For a simple and easy upgrade, you can start by changing your drawer pulls and cabinet knobs into charming wooden options. These mini wonders would look great against white.
