The New Nordic

Lifestyle trends such as Hygge and Lagom may come and go but our love for Scandinavian design is here to stay.

Characterised by simplicity and functionality the concept is perfectly suited to kitchen design. 

The combination of wood, soft greys and natural accents never fail to create a calm room and there are many material choices and styles available. To create a unique Scandinavian design for your home you may want to consider the following:

Touching texture

Inspired by the cool colours of the landscape, pale kitchens are a natural choice in for a Nordic design. Choose a finish with texture to create contrast and interest. Although not all areas have to be in the same material, if there is a finish that you particularly want, you could consider using it just one area as a feature. For example, a lay-on wooden breakfast bar over a concrete effect worktop.

Simple storage

Storage is also a key element of Scandinavian kitchen design.

Floor-to-ceiling cabinets create a clean, uncluttered look and deliver an abundance of storage even in the smallest space. Also consider open shelving, in contrasting material, to display your crockery and glassware. Again as well as being a design choice, open shelving is practical as things you need everyday are easily on hand.

Handles Free

Nothing combines simplicity and functionality more than a handle free kitchen, instantly creating an uncluttered, clean feel to your room. 

Metal Works

Add warmth with metallic accents. These can be part of the kitchen such as taps, sink or handles or you could use decorative objects like storage baskets or light fittings to get the look.
