How to Create The Perfect Minimalist Kitchen

Minimalistic interior design is about ‘reducing the obvious and adding the meaningful’. It is about simplicity and subtlety in appearance and style. Minimalist kitchen designs have become a rage many decades and years to come. Minimalism infuses a much-needed sense of calm and helps one redirect their focus to the present. A few changes and upgrades will deliver really noticeable results. Hence, if you don’t need to renovate the kitchen right now, start out by attempting the following.

Starting from Zero

Decluttering the counters and other visible services will contribute to a transformation that’s difficult to believe. Many homeowners don’t notice clutter accumulating in the kitchen. Caught up in meal prep and everyday routines, they don’t see stuff piling up.

Not only will decluttering instantly make your kitchen feel more spacious and organised, it will also simplify cleaning and maintenance. That’s how you’re easily going to achieve some of the most important goals of minimalist design.

Use Clean, High Quality Materials

Because minimalism usually features fewer elements than other interior design styles, you have to make every single piece count. For the purpose, choose high quality materials and well-constructed pieces. Beautiful materials like solid wood, marble, granite and stainless steel make a visual statement without being excessive. They will create a sense of luxury and elegance, prompting you to enjoy the kitchen and spend more time in it. Even if you can’t afford all these fine materials, there are excellent replicas on the market. Synthetic materials that look like actual wood or natural stone are very durable, non-porous and super easy to clean. There are still variations when it comes to synthetic materials that look like natural ones. Do ask your interior designer for recommendations on selecting elements that fit into the concept of your home interior design.

Exercise restrain on the Color Palette

Minimalist interior design employs a simple philosophy – less is more. There are various décor elements you can minimise. The use of colour is one of those. If you don’t overdo the colour selection and you keep the palette restrained, you’ll quickly and effortlessly achieve minimalist aesthetics.

You can still feature by displaying pieces of art or some type of wall décor. Minimalist design can still have decorative elements, as long as some restraint is exercised. A single prominent piece of art or a functional type of wall décor (hanging beautiful placemats, for example) will feel right at home in a minimalist kitchen.

Opt for Non-Bulky Carpentry

There are a few conventional kitchen design elements you can effortlessly get rid of without sacrificing functionality. Clean lines are very important when it comes to minimalist executions. they’re super easy to achieve with frameless and hardware-free cabinetry

Handles can be replaced by magnetic designs and sliding cabinet doors that open with a single push. Such cabinets can be found easily in Singapore and even if you can’t discover the perfect model in a store, you can have custom creations put together for your kitchen.


A minimalist home often possesses warmth and character beyond anticipation, to can serve numerous purposes while maintaining tidiness and ease of maintenance. To turn that into a reality, it needs to be well organized and clutter free. A minimalist kitchen can be super functional and exciting to spend time in if you put effort and planning into the conceptualisation of the design.
