9. The Minimalist Design Style.
The minimalist design style is a modern style that focuses on simplicity, balance, uniformity and functionality- it supports the adage of “Less is better“. For aesthetic reasons, this style appeals to those who believe in functionality and less on decorative flair. This is a style that is very “breatheable“. It blatantly rejects the excessive adornment of the classical period. For this reason the white scheme, with a touch of colour to achieve the calm desire for the space, is most appealing.
If this style appeals to you, remember to avoid color vibration and clutter; use natural textures and colours. You can get a fresh clean look by ensuring openness and space in your layout. The window treatment should also be simple – basic shades or an exposed window fits nicely with this style.
Here are some examples of the minimalistic design style for kitchens.
