Create a Scandinavian Style in your Kitchen3 min read

A Scandi style is perfect for the modern kitchen and creates a simple, elegant design that is classic and contemporary at the same time. It has a bright and clutter-free approach to the hub of the home, born from rough Nordic winters. This style creates a true setting that embraces hints of colour, the warmth of wood and textural beauty.

The Nordic style can be created anywhere, in a large or small space and we have the perfect granite and quartz worktops to pop out light hues and unique patterns.

What is this style?

The Scandi style is made up of three components – functionality, simplicity and beauty. It doesn’t just represent one style, but a design that is created by many influences and ideas, from traditional and rustic to a minimalist style.

Choosing white and light hues

When it comes to thinking of the Nordic style you automatically think of the colour white. A rough winters nights can be seen as a dark and dull setting with cold temperatures, so you want the interior to be bright and cheery. The colour white maximises the available natural light and it goes with absolutely everything. To give it the wow factor, add additional elements such as wooden tones and slight hints of colour. Create smart storage and a clutter-free environment to achieve the perfect Scandinavian look you are after.

Add pops of colour into the kitchen design

If an all-white themed kitchen is the style you have opted for, add hints of colour in the furniture and accessories. A SMEG fridge and an AGA range cooker, with an added houseplant and a vibrant mixer, will provide the pop of colour that’s perfect for this style and won’t make it go over the top.

Just because Summer has ended it doesn’t mean that you can’t add colours like yellow and green to this style.

Research and purchase a piece of contemporary art to add to this design style, there are many on the market that will catch your eye. It will add character and create a wonderful addition that will be loved for many years. Whether you opt for a large feature canvas or a simplistic frame, they will both work and give inspiration within the space.

A wooden floor

Wooden flooring is a true beauty and is a great idea to incorporate into this certain style. There are l0ots of wooden flooring options available, from colours to textures and finishes that are very practical in the kitchen. When you are looking for the perfect flooring for the Nordic style you want to thinking of light blonde oaks, white-washed boards and oiled finishes. Add a sheepskin rug for the perfect accessory to your floor, adding a cosy and warm feel to the natural beauty underneath your toes.

Feature lights

How about creating a dramatic or unique feature with a floor lamp in the corner of the kitchen or hanging a beautiful glistening pendant. Pendants are very popular in the home right now and have been for some years. They are brighter than standard lighting like a spotlight. Hang these feature lights over a kitchen island or dining table for the perfect eye-catcher.
