Back with our Thursday signature of ‘Room of the Week’, today let’s travel to the Scandinavia, with a mid-century and very minimalist kitchen that gives you the most amazing nordic and Scandinavian feeling. From the pastel colors used in the design to the furniture and decor style, everything falls beautifully together to create a wonderful and relaxing space. Perfect for you to get your cooking on in the most stylish way you can think of.
Texas-based interior designer Jeanne Schultz was tasked with designing compact kitchens that were short on space but long on usability and charm. The result was this kitchen with brightly colored cabinets and open shelving, that keep the space looking bright and open, while the compact appliances allow for a fully functional kitchen.
The designer made sure to state that “the appliance mounts nearly flush to the countertop and may function as a usable surface when not heated. A contiguous surface optimizes workspace and prevents an interruption to preparation areas.”
An additional eating are was added to the kitchen, creating the feeling of it being a family room, where the whole family can gather for a nice dinner. The white dining room setting ended up looking great in the nordic-inspired kitchen, giving it a sense of modernity and trendy casualness.
As opposing to having built a pantry closet, the designer decided to go with open shelving, which provides additional food storage by stretching the full horizontal width of the kitchen space. Open shelves stack vertically more efficiently than the confinements of a mounted upper cabinet, and also provide storage area for dinnerware, etc.
