Cutting down your cooking space has nothing to do with saving on style or function. In fact, making meals in a minimalist kitchen means different things to different people. For some, it is all about having a lot of concealed storage space, so countertops are free of stuff. Some people embrace minimalism as a decor aesthetic punctured by simple, flat-front cabinetry and luxurious marble countertop islands. We think the idea is all about is making a chic and tidy space with budget essentials. Even those attracted to maximalist style have their own particular take on the simplified cooking space. However, do not let other people’s personal choices confuse your style. We’re here to share a wide range of styles that summarize the minimalist kitchen.

1 A Minimalist Dining Set

Clean lines and comfortable accents define this minimalist open kitchen. A light beige quartz countertop and a luxury kitchen backsplash add elegance. Cabinets and accents in pure white lend a natural feel to the kitchen. Fixtures and furniture like the wooden chair and flower pattern waterjet marble backsplash feel both modern and glamour. In some designs, the trick for creating a clean and tidy kitchen is tons of storage - here this kitchen takes the form of modern, flat-front cabinetry.

2 Simple Color and Natural Textures

Minimalist cooking areas are all about making less feel like more, according to our designer Jane. Her version of the aesthetic is all about keeping surfaces free of extraneous stuff by providing kitchen tools and countertop appliances a specific space inside cabinets. She also finds that having a white kitchen with a few simple pops of color and wood tones makes the illusion of calm.

3 Maximalist Mix Minimalist

You can undoubtedly pair moody tones, natural wood textures, and cozy styles into a pared-down kitchen, as shown below. The backsplash features a Moroccan bubble style mini arabesque shape, glossy glazed surface, and retro color. Therefore, the backsplash toes the line between minimalism and maximalism. But what keeps the arabesque tiles from feeling visually overwhelming is the wooden pattern cabinet on the top of the range. Its wooden pattern keeps the whole space feeling uncluttered. What’s more, natural wood accents epitomize the minimalist atmosphere and the materials take the visual heft off the kitchen features.

4 A Baking Enthusiast's Favorite

The reason why many people love minimalist kitchens is that the design aesthetic packs an enduring style. This natural kitchen design illustrates the point. Black fitting features combined with a high-end white marble countertop add both beauty and function to the food prep areas. Moreover, the new picket shape recycled mosaic tile comes in a natural wood grain made with ink-jet printing tech. A stunning built-in bread roaster would make any baking lover drool.

5 Small Space with Plenty of Personalities

When it comes to a creative minimalist kitchen, the backsplash is an important space. A simple and stylish leaf pattern mosaic tiles look like the shape of wheat. These wheat pattern mosaic tiles work perfectly to install a kitchen backsplash. By the way, in an age when white color schemes rule the kitchen, gray cabinets might seem risky. But look where creativity and courage can take you. The gray hue cabinets work well with the rich and elegant countertop.

10 Practical and Attractive Kitchen

Jane designed this clean and neat kitchen to fit the needs of our client. The goal was to maximize square footage for actual use - an important feature of minimalist kitchens. The two rectangle countertops bring plenty of space for both food prep and cleaning up. Toward the back by range is the main cooking space with plenty of space for cutting up food. Many cabinetry means only small appliances used daily take up the countertop.
