Having devoted the article to the peculiarities of the Scandinavian style in the interior as a whole, our site of advice decided to dwell in more detail on kitchens designed in this direction of design. Trust me, you will recognize Scandinavian cuisines at first sight, they are very special and very beautiful.!
In the Scandinavian style, you can design a kitchen of any size – a tiny one will look more spacious thanks to its minimalism and the use of white, and a spacious one will be especially attractive and functional.
The portal has already given you examples of kitchens decorated in white. The Scandinavian style also implies just such snow-white or milky facades. But they can and should be supplemented with inclusions of gray, graphite, dark blue, blue colors, as well as all shades of natural wood. Abrupt transitions such as black-and-white, red-white, or yellow-white are discouraged.
Remember that laconicism and light colors require careful wall and ceiling decoration. Otherwise, all the irregularities will be visible. Walls and ceilings can be simply painted with washable paint, one wall can be accentuated with patterned wallpaper.
The floor in a Scandinavian kitchen, of course, is better to be made of wood, because it is wood that is an integral part of this style. However, if you find this option impractical and too expensive, choose tiles or porcelain stoneware imitating wood..
Cabinet facades in Scandinavian kitchen are always very simple and laconic. Storage locations should not clutter up space. Open shelves are often used to replace the top row of cabinets.
The textures of spruce, pine, clarified oak add warmth and comfort to Scandinavian kitchens. With wood, of course, it is better not to overdo it, otherwise you will get a rustic style. Wood in a Scandinavian kitchen should be light, it is used, as we already wrote, on the floor, in the design of the dining area, in the form of beams on the ceiling, to highlight a separate fragment of the wall or when choosing the facades of the headset.
Scandinavian-style kitchens are modestly decorated: rare live plants or greenery in a container on the windowsill, light curtains or a Roman blind, natural textiles in neutral shades, modern laconic lamps, ceramic dishes – that’s enough.
Designers note that today the Scandinavian style in the design of kitchens is in great demand. However, in its pure form, it is not so common – the Russian mentality makes its own adjustments, and the kitchen eventually becomes brighter and more homely, receives individual differences.
