Scandi kitchen ideas for a simplistic and functional space

Creating a Scandi kitchen is about designing a space that feels calm and cosy whilst attaining a functional, clean environment. The Scandinavian style uses a calming colour palette, clean, sleek lines, warm woods and pops of colours to create harmonious spaces. At Masterclass Kitchens, we have kitchen ranges, colours and design features to create your dream Scandi Kitchen.

Take a look at our top tips for Scandi Kitchens for inspiration:

Open shelving

One of the most sought-after features in the kitchen is open shelving, and it’s a fantastic choice for a Scandi kitchen. We have a wide selection of open shelving options to suit any size kitchen and a beautiful range of wood effect finishes to enhance the Scandinavian look.

Handleless kitchen design

Handleless kitchen design and Scandinavian style go hand-in-hand. The minimalist sleek, clean lines of a handleless kitchen are the perfect backdrop for a modern home. 

The handleless flat slab door creates the illusion of space, making it ideal for smaller homes. 

Neutral colour palette

To achieve the Scandi kitchen look, choose neutral shades as your base colours to keep your home looking balanced.

Calming neutral tones is one of the biggest kitchen trends for 2021, and we have a wide range of shades to lust over. To add a splash of personality, incorporate touches of bold rich colours like oxford Blue or Hunter Green.

Brighten your space and make the most out of the natural light with crisp white worktops. No matter what style or colour you choose, a white worktop will always be a great versatile choice.

Top tip: mix and match your worktops to differentiate the spaces, wood worktops are great for social areas.
