When life gets chaotic, you need a place of serenity to nest amidst it all. A busy, cluttered kitchen is not only overwhelming to the eye, but overwhelming to your headspace. By contrast, a minimalist aesthetic creates a functional and organised kitchen that calms your soul.
Simplifying your kitchen using a minimalist design doesn’t have to come at the expense of warmth and character. To the contrary, it just means that every piece purposefully creates a statement. A minimalist approach may allow you to create a space which opens your home and your mind by providing the perfect balance of order, style and personality.
When it comes to colour in the kitchen, less is always more. Contemporary design is defined by deliberate use of texture, clean lines and monochromatic themes. Subtle sophistication is created through the use of all black or white tones. A monochromatic kitchen provides the perfect blank canvas for you to imprint your own personal touch into the heart of your home.
One of the reasons we all love jeans is that they can be paired with anything. Well, monochromatic kitchens are just like that. You can complement their stylish simplicity by matching your benchtops to your splash-back, producing a tranquil waterfall effect.

Blending your appliances into your bench top and cabinetry produces smooth fluidity. Consistent, clean lines can be achieved with ceramic and induction cooktops, undermount rangehoods and integrated dishwashers. This is where functionality meets refined elegance.
Using invisible hardware eradicates noise in the kitchen to quieten the mind. Cabinetry without handles creates a streamlined look which adds length and ensures you won’t feel boxed in. This uniform approach reduces competition with other captivating features, allowing you to showcase your home’s complete character.
An island benchtop is a defining central feature which encourages congregation. This meeting place creates a wall-less room that acts as the heart of the home. Not only that, they’re very practical in smaller kitchens for their ability to add extra workspace and storage.
Consider islands with cabinetry that open from both sides to maximise space and reduce cluttering. After-all, minimalism looks best when it’s clean.
