A simple lifestyle is echoed in a minimalist design style. This style is not fussy but can be quite pleasing to the eye when the right natural textures and colours are combined.
I find this style encouraging for those who are de-cluttering or like order. It is also ideal for the cook who likes simple and down to earth food. Since this style is very natural and focuses on functional elements. It is also considered therapeutic.
A room that has clean lines; calming colours and textures on the walls, cabinets, and furniture; a simple window that brings the outdoor in can be very calming to babies, children (especially those who suffer from ADD), and “shut-ins”. The minimalist style of decorating is perfect for those who look forward to winding down at home after a hard days work.
Therefore, this style is not for the collector. The person who would buy, every week without failing, a new wall piece for the kitchen wall. The elements in this style are focused, uniformed in appearance and the aim is simple, but elegant. This means that there are few well placed ornaments; a few basic geometric shapes; and textures and colours are clean. All the cooking utensils are stored in the cupboards. The style imitates nature and is therefore perfect for the outdoor kitchen as well.
Some people think that this style, with its detail use of natural materials such solid timber, can be a bit expensive to pull off. It is like a contradiction, but with a good design plan a minimalist style can be possible. It is also possible when you consider first these .
Some designers suggest that open cabinets can be used. However, uniformity is important. For instance a space is used for a collection of cookbooks, a uniform paper cover can be used on the books. Displays are singular as well. That means if you must group items they must similar and place in an area where balance is maintained.
