Scandinavian design in bedrooms and living rooms are very stylish, but you should not stop there if you want to transform your home into Nordic-inspired eye-candy. Although relatively modest size-wise, kitchens in North European homes are characterized by peerless elegance and superior spatial economy, and they are often seamlessly blended into dining or living rooms for utmost functionality. Here are some tips on how to take your cooking area to the superior Scandinavian level: be prepared to privately whistle in awe!
Whoever said that stainless steel and marble should not be mixed? In a Nordic home, metal and stone coexist in harmony, and so do wood and ceramic tiles. Creative combinations of natural materials make a unique textural statement, so do not be afraid to warm up a minimalist Nordic kitchen with matte wooden cabinetry topped by leather pulls.
Cabinets with metal feet and marble countertops can also be paired for a stylish twist. Nordic kitchens centered on interplay of different natural materials exude a welcoming feel and minimalist elegance.
Although strong contrasts should be avoided when replicating Scandinavian style at home, a dash of vintage will not go amiss in the minimalist Nordic kitchen. Pastel, neutral-hued, of faux natural wallpapers, tablecloths with botanical or geometric prints, an open-back shelf made from reclaimed timber, and classic tile designs fare well in Nordic dining rooms and kitchens.
Traditional designs can be used to break the uniformity of monochromatic Scandinavian decors and infuse a modernist dining room with a touch of coziness and warmth.
