How to Design a Minimalist Custom Kitchen

Minimalism has long been a popular design trend. One explanation for its popularity is its versatility as it typically can incorporate elements from other styles including modernism, industrial, naturalistic designs, and more. If you want a minimalistic aesthetic for your custom kitchen, you will need to get a professional designer to put all the elements together as minimalistic designs must always be applied with tastefulness.



Here are some of the staple elements for achieving a minimalistic custom kitchen:






1. Unified Colours

Monochromatic is the way to go when it comes to minimalistic colour schemes. Neutral tones as well as greys, white tones and black tones are most suitable for minimalistic custom kitchens, though you can experiment with some bold colours by applying them to select elements or statement pieces.


2. Simple Shapes

One defining element of minimalism is its attention to pleasing geometry and sharp lines. Islands, cabinetry and countertops can be designed to conform to seamless shapes to create geometrical visuals in your custom kitchen. Ultimately, this will result in a more harmonious look for your home.


3. Built-In Appliances

In line with simple shapes and the design concept of seamlessness, built-in appliances can be incorporated into your kitchen instead of being left as standalones. This is already typically done with ovens and dishwashers, but you can do the same with microwaves, refrigerators and more, adding a futuristic edge to your custom kitchen. Go one step further and have custom panels made for the fridge and dishwasher so they blend seamlessly with the cabinetry.


4. Hidden Lights

Another way to maintain the minimalism of your home is to ensure that you do not use flamboyant or overly flashy lights. Hidden light fixtures can be placed above or below cabinets and along the sides of counters or your island. Hidden lights will softly illuminate any space, creating a soothing aura that will perfectly complement the rest of your minimalistic kitchen.


5. Floor-to-Ceiling Windows

Another way to illuminate your kitchen is to use floor-to-ceiling windows. Generally, floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the look of any home seeking a minimalistic look. When used in a kitchen, they can really open up a usually confined space. The right window frames can also play into the idea of seamless lines and geometry.


These elements will all work to bring about a minimalistic look for any custom kitchen. The design experts at NIMA Kitchen will be able to apply these principles for any kitchen, big or small, and help you realize your design vision. Call us today to set up your first consultation!
