Ways to elevate your minimalist kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of any home, and its importance is evident given the time spent there. Minimalist kitchen designs have surged in popularity over recent years. The sleek, modern, and appealing aesthetic of a minimalist kitchen offers numerous benefits.

If you want to elevate your kitchen without compromising on minimalist design, we have several ideas for you.

Minimalist Kitchens: What Are They? A minimalist kitchen focuses on simplicity and functionality. With a sleek and modern appearance, these kitchens often feature limited colour palettes, minimal accessories and decor, and simple geometric forms. The aim is to create a sense of calm and order by keeping everything visually clean and uncluttered. Functionality is also key, ensuring everything needed for cooking and entertaining is accessible without unnecessary clutter.

Why Are These Kitchen Designs So Popular?

Minimalist kitchens are popular for several reasons. Such as…

Creating Calm

A minimalist kitchen brings calm and simplicity to a space often bustling with activity. In our fast-paced lives, this can be a welcome relief.

Maximising Space

Minimalist designs can make smaller kitchens feel more spacious and open, perfect for smaller homes, units, or apartments. The use of a narrow colour range creates a cohesive and harmonious feel.

Easy Styling With uniform colours and limited features, it’s easier to style a minimalist kitchen.

Lower Cost

Minimalist designs can be budget-friendly as they require fewer accessories and decor items. The goal is a clean, sleek look, which fewer items help achieve.

How to Elevate Your Minimalist Kitchen

Here are some subtle yet impactful ways to enhance your minimalist kitchen with Slumped Glass.

Introduce a Feature

A feature or statement piece can break up the matching colours and add visual flair. Consider a boldly coloured slumped glass piece on the wall, a splashback, grouped smaller artworks, or graphic wallpaper under flat glass. Ensure it suits your aesthetic and doesn’t clutter the space.

Natural Elements

Incorporating natural materials like glass can add warmth and texture to your minimalist kitchen. It softens the design without adding clutter. Think hanging glass lights or front panels and kick boards from glass.


Minimalist design often involves geometric forms. Experiment with proportions, such as Glass textural patterns or cabinet doors from slumped glass, to add visual interest without clutter.

Balancing simplicity and sophistication is crucial in minimalist kitchens. Attention to detail and creativity will help you achieve a stylish, functional, and minimalist kitchen space.
