I’m a huge fan of minimalist design. I find that it creates a sense of lightness and peace. When I first decided to redecorate and paint my place (which is still a work in progress!), I knew I wanted to create a home that embodied the definition of minimalism- developing a space that only contained the things that truly make me happy and enrich my life. Right now, I’m working on bringing that same aesthetic to my kitchen. Below, I’ve found 10 kitchens that embody all of my minimalist kitchen goals!

1. I can’t get enough of the white subway tile wall, with the dangling black string lights and weathered black cabinets. (Source: HomEdit)

2. The gold chandeliers and the gold cabinet handles pair perfectly with the colorful rug, giving this minimalist kitchen a bohemian twist. (Source: Loombrand)

3. This tiny home kitchen and loft bed are the definition of making the most of your space. (Source: Sustainable Simplicity)

4. This predominately black and marble kitchen shows that minimalism isn’t about the brightness or lightness of the color used. (Source: Inside Out)

5. The high ceilings and overhead string lighting add such a nice touch to this beautiful kitchen. Although the table doesn’t appear to be too large, it comfortably seats 8.  (Source: Nordic Design)

6. The wooden paneling with the two wooden stools, adds a nice touch to this large, bright kitchen. (Source: Mr. And Mrs. Interior)

7. This minimalist kitchen makes a statement with the robust pop of color on the wall. The black and white art stands out against the sea foam background. (Source: Tumblr)

8. The black cabinets really bring the whole kitchen together in this Copenhagen home. (Source: Nordic Design)

9. This tiny kitchen holds just the necessities and looks good while doing so. (Source: Archilovers)

10. I love the use of gold and grey in this minimalist kitchen. The gold light orbs and handles with the grey cabinets give it a touch of modernity. (Source: Homebunch)

  • The tile wall is my dream haha need one at some point x

  • I absolutely adore the first one! I can’t wait to get my own house so I can design my own kitchen, definitely taking inspiration from this post x

  • The last 5 are absolutely gorgeous! My mum wants to do an extension and expand the kitchen, if I could have one of these it would be dreamy!

  • lianne

    Oh to have one of these kitchens!! 🙂 I designed our kitchen 🙂

    • That’s awesome! Was it hard?

  • I’m really into kitchen designs at the moment. These are all beautiful!

    Looooooooove the minimalist look with the dark accents – very Scandi chic!! x

  • GlamourGlitterGloss

    I’d love a bright white kitchen with gold accessories, it looks so striking

  • Loving the interior decor ideas here. Makes me want to decorate.

  • Joanna McCaffrey

    I think the cube kitchen is my favourite. I love the idea and it seems very practical. The only problem for me would be to keep it looking pristine. That is the only issue with minimalist spaces: any mess really stands out.

    • I struggle with keeping my kitchen clean too!

  • I love the idea of the loft bed, all the range is amazing.

  • Kira L Curtis

    I love those overhead string lightings, so unique! But I think my favourite has got to be number 6!

  • I live in a studio type apartment for #3 appears to me more than the others. These are all great ideas for sure

    • I love how they make use of their small space!

  • As someone with a tiny kitchen these are great inspiration, we really need to update our kitchen but we’re still in the stages of deciding what we want

    • My kitchen isn’t very big either so I understand!

  • Naomi JC

    Well…. this made me want to go to IKEA lol!! I love the rug in the kitchen I have never seen the before and it looks so cosy actually

  • Jodie Whitham

    I love kitchens 2, 8, 9 and 10. I love anything that looks almost modern x

    • I completely agree Jodie!

  • I am desperate to update our kitchen, and love the minimalist look, I know exactly what I want but it will be a lot of work, as it also includes redesigning the downstairs x

    • Definitely a ton of work, but totally worth it!

  • When it comes to interior design, I’m totally for minimalism mixed with organic materials and a hint of industrial style.

    • That sounds like an awesome mix Lubka!

  • I love minimalist design and some of these are right up my street! I love the idea of a crisp white and black kitchen x

    • Hi Tanya! The crisp white and black one is one of my favorites.

  • Melanie Edjourian

    I am also a huge fan of minimalist design and love the different light ideas. The kitchens look gorgeous.

    • danasia

      Thanks Jessica!

  • Subway tiles are definitely ‘on trend’ but I’m just not sure for how long…I absolutely adore the rope lights hanging down though – I’m looking for some myself actually so it’s good to check out the different styles..

    • danasia

      I get what you mean about subway tiles-! I think they’ve got a classic look though, so hopefully after the trend fades it’ll still be appealing in homes!

  • Charlotte

    Love the string lighting and I would love to have that high ceiling. Like the wood panelling in the white kitchen too.

    • danasia

      Hi Charlotte! I love high ceilings too!

  • I love the gold handles in the second one and black and marble looks beautiful. I love my kitchen but I have too much stuff to be minimalistic x

  • I love how beautiful simplicity can be! These are all great inspo for the kitchen 🙂

  • We are hoping to invest in some white subway tiles in our kitchen before the end of the year. I love the tiny kitchen that makes such a great use of the teeny space.

    • danasia

      That’s awesome you’re getting subway tiles this year! I’m sure it’s going to look incredible!

  • Leah Shafik

    For someone who’s haven is their kitchen this is like kitchen p0rn for me! I am desperate to get a new kitchen though and these are great inspiration. In fact – I may even make a kitchen pinterest board! Thanks for this post x

    • danasia

      You should definitely make a kitchen pinterest board! If you do, leave your pinterest name in a comment and I’ll follow it!

  • Hannah Latoya Bond

    I’m not a fan of the minimalist look, especially the color white. White just reminds me a lot of hospitals x

    • danasia

      My cousin said the same exact thing to me!

  • My kitchen is large and white and lime and I love it, its warm and welcoming and family orientated but when i step into my mothers its white and clinical yet stunning and I want it its very much like the images above, its a bespoke made kitchen so designed to her standards and taste which she oozes in taste as its very show room style unlike me she has a place for everything put away

    • danasia

      You and your mother seem to have good taste! Both of your kitchens sound cute!

  • As much as I love color, I just love a white kitchen! Especially with white subway tile!

    • danasia

      White subway tile is literally at the top of my kitchen goals!

  • Beautyqueenuk

    I have a Pinterest board dedicated to kitchens and in my ideal world where money was no object, I would need a lot of kitchens x

    • danasia

      Omg, me too. My place would have a ton of kitchens and really cute living rooms. lol

  • Kacie

    I have a serious case of kitchen envy! Can’t wait until I own my own house 🙂

    • danasia

      Me too Kacie!

  • There are some really great designs in this post. I really like the white subway tile and black cabinets in #1 and how bright and airy #2 looks.

    • danasia

      Thanks Sarah! I’m in love with the subway tiles too.

  • I would struggle to maintain a minimalist kitchen. These are all gorgeous tho!

    • danasia

      I totally get what you mean Nikki! I’ve been trying to work on it but I’m looking at my counter right now and it’s covered in stuff:(

  • Because my husband is the opposite of minimalist, I will never have a kitchen like this, but now I can come here to look around and feel calmer at the clutter-free environment! Maybe someday – in my dreams!

    • danasia

      Hi Lisa! Who knows, maybe you’ll convince him sooner than you think!

  • FussFreeJen

    Some lovely designs there, I’m just not sure about all that white!

    • danasia

      Hi Jen! I think the one with the seafoam accent wall is one of my top favorites for that very reason.

  • These kitchens are right up my street – the design is beautiful! x

    • danasia

      I couldn’t agree more Stephanie!

  • Donna

    Yip I’m definitely swooning!!! Gorgeous gorgeous ideas here x

    • danasia

      Thanks Donna! Glad you enjoyed it!

  • i love minimilist looks but being mum to 8 ts impossible for my home to look it lol , i love those hanging light ideas x

    • danasia

      Lol! I totally understand Lisa. I’ve got to large dogs and their are days where it looks like I run a doggy daycare.

  • Nicole Kroutil

    I am becoming obsessed with minimalist lifestyle and this just proves it’s so worth it. I LOVE kitchen #2 with the bohemian twist and I’m even more in love with the colour choice for the feature wall in #7. Makes me want to grab a paintbrush ! Haha

    • danasia

      Hi Nicole! Thanks for commenting. I became obsessed with minimalism 1.5 years ago and haven’t looked back!
