Think of Scandinavian style and the first thing that comes to mind is the color white. As we alluded to earlier the harsh winters that shaped the style dictated this color choice as homeowners wanted an interior that was airy cheerful and moved away from the chill and gloom outside. White is the obvious choice as it maximizes the available natural light while keeping the visual fragmentation to a minimum. Since white is already a popular hue when it comes to kitchen design most of us will have little hassle in switching styles.
The one-wall kitchen often sees the sink stove and the refrigerator anchored to the same wall with additional cabinet and storage space. But this is definitely not a ‘must’ on all occasions and there are times when you can turn to the dining room nearby for additional storage or even some space for the refrigerator. It is all about creating a kitchen that works for you and your cooking habits.
The single-wall kitchen has come a long from its more simple origins and some of today’s exceptional designs seem like as much a work of art as they feel like an extension of the posh living space. Once again do not be constrained by the classic definition of the one-wall kitchen and work with what your specific needs are. Some might not really need a giant fridge in the kitchen while others could do with a minimal and unassuming prep zone. Even a traditional single-wall kitchen frees up space for a more spacious dining room next to it by eliminating the unnecessary island and ensures your small living space feels even roomier.
It is generally the ‘summer colors’ that agree with this style but stronger hues also seem at home when used with restraint. Remember that whether it is pattern or color moderation is a mantra that you need to stick to when it comes to the classic Scandinavian look. Cabinets in gentle green or light aqua along with matching chairs in the adjacent dining space take the appeal to a whole new level!
