If you like clean lines, bright lighting, and a room free of clutter, then you may find Scandinavian designs appealing. Natural light, light colors, and modern furnishings are important design elements to include when imitating styles born in places like Sweden, Norway, or Finland. To get some inspiration for your kitchen, here are some Scandinavian kitchen design ideas.

Scandinavian Design

Although to many people, Scandinavian-style décor can seem cold, others like its uncluttered, simplistic aesthetic. While it isn’t the most popular design style, it only appears in about 0.74% of 1.78 million kitchens in a design survey; it makes a strong visual impact.

Scandinavian Color Scheme

Like the design aesthetic, the color scheme for a Scandinavian kitchen is simple since it is white. The cabinetry, furnishings, and some of the appliances are usually white. Since white cabinet finishes are popular, recreating this look in your kitchen is easy to do.

Cabinet Styles

Since clean lines are featured in Scandinavian designs, the cabinets in the kitchen are often flat-panel. They may have exposed hardware, which is usually a silver-tone metal, but most designs will have cabinets without hardware on the doors or drawers. To create a stark color contrast in some kitchens, homeowners will choose black hardware on the cabinets.

Flat or Glossy finishes are often found on the cabinets to help create a cleaner design. Since this style includes modern features, some homes may have cabinets with a plastic-like finish, using materials like melamine, Thermo-foil, or wood laminate. Some light, or blonde, wood finishes may be found in Scandinavian kitchens too.

Modern Furnishings

The dining sets or chairs at the island in a Scandinavian kitchen may be used to add a splash of color or further define its modern aesthetic. Modern furnishings, specifically mid-century modern, are often used to enhance a room. Mid-century modern furniture boasts clean lines, it often is colorful, and it may consist of from metal, plastic, or painted wood.

Brighten with Light

It’s important to incorporate light in kitchens with a Scandinavian design. Natural light is most common, but if your kitchen only has a window or two, install overhead lights in the kitchen. Pendant or recessed lights are a stylish way to bring bright lights into the room.

For the most part, Scandinavian kitchen design ideas will make good use of the color white, but you can add splashes of color to a contract to this clean design style.
