Minimalist Kitchen Ideas That Are Not Boring

While minimalist interior decorating has a reputation for being simple and sleek, it can sometimes feel impersonal or in need of something “different,” especially when it comes to kitchen décor. If you are a fan of having a minimalist kitchen but are in dire need of a revamp here are a few minimalist kitchen ideas that are everything but boring.

Pops of Blue

Simple yet beautiful and joyful is one of the best forms of describing a minimalist kitchen with a pop of blue. Having blue stools works perfectly as it gives you the ability to interchange them when you want to use another color and it brings the entire decor together.

Blue is one of the most versatile shades to work with because it fits well with multiple different décor hues including neutrals. Add a pop of color to make the space feel more intimate. It also adds texture right where you want it most. We recommend doing so using an accent chair or accent stools.


Marble is perfect for giving a minimalist decor a bit of an upgrade. The natural veining in marble gives the room texture and beauty while still being minimal and subtle. Maintain the area as simple with color as possible to give the marble the spotlight ti deserves. 

Marble is the perfect solution for those that want to maintain a white kitchen but want a touch of texture in the most subtle form. The idea is to maintain the crisp aspect of having white be the main color of the kitchen while still having marble veining that adds a hint of subtle color.

Kitchen island

If you can’t decide what color or material your kitchen island should be, consider combining two materials together. Or using a blonde wood kitchen island and exposing the natural beauty of it instead of painting it. This will create a trendy upscale decor space. 

Invest in a large kitchen island for that simple touch that makes a grand statement. You can choose to keep your island the same color as the rest of your décor or you may want to consider a vivid hue to brighten up the space effortlessly instead.

Intricate Lighting

In a minimalist space a grand statement light fixture is always a great idea. Consider a large one piece that makes the room appear larger and even more put together. It i also a great way to add elegance without having to incorporate any other decor items.

Minimalist décor is essentially a way of allowing the space to shine brighter than any décor would, in order for that happen there needs to be great lighting. What better way to have great lighting than to have an intricate light fixture that makes the space come to life.

Darker Walls

Dark walls mixed with dark furniture is an excellent form of bringing a mysterious vibe to your kitchen. There is something very “cool” about displaying a darker hue in the kitchen. The main reason being the kitchen is one of the areas every loves to see in a light hues, therefore, its completely unexpected when its rich and dark.

Painting your kitchen walls, a dark hue is excellent when you want to add an edgy touch to the area. Instead of adding dark hues as décor consider bringing the dark shades directly to the space with darker, richer walls. Consider using shades of navy, reds or even black for the ultimate contrast.

Farmhouse accents

Farmhouse accents are one of a kind because of the welcoming vibe they give off. There is something very warm and cozy about them that allows them to simply work in all areas of the home, especially in the kitchen area. Add multiple different wooden accents to truly display this chic decor trend. 

Farmhouse décor is here to stay. Add farmhouse accents for that trendy feel that does not take away from the décor you already have. Simply add farmhouse accents to complete the look and provide that cozy feel farmhouses are well known for.

Sweet Metallics

Want to really revamp your decor and bring it all together? If so the answer is simple add rose gold in bulk. The feminine metallic hue is perfect for revamping a space that is missing a touch of metal that enhances your current decor. 

Metallics are an excellent addition to any kitchen, especially when you are working with a minimalist space. Use metallics around the kitchen area for an intricate touch, use shades with pink undertones such as rose gold for a soft, feminine touch and silver or bronze undertones for an edgier feel that just flows naturally.

Blonde Wood

Blonde wood doesn’t always get all the credit that it deserves. The color is not only beautiful but it works great when you want to keep your decor to a minimal but still want to have wood features in the kitchen. Add blonde wood stools, kitchen island and decor pieces for a cohesive look. 

Use a blonde wood as a complementary hue that brightens the space. The lighter the wood the softer the décor will appear. The key is working with the softer wood to have a rustic feel that is still fresh without having that deep coziness that a rustic home is known for.

Sleek and Glam

A sleek and glamorous decor will bring the space back to life with an undeniable sense of chic. In this case, consider using a rounded kitchen island for a more intimate feel that is also unique. Pair it with elegant barstools for the perfect pair addition.

Sleek is one of the many benefits of having a minimal kitchen décor, therefore, embracing, the sleekness of being minimal can work in your favor. Keep the space sleek yet, add a glamorous touch by adding dark accents. The dark, almost black accents bring in that touch of glam that is still edgy.

Add a small table 

If you already have a minimal kitchen that is filled with dark hues consider using a blonde wood eating table as part of the decor. This will not only break down the darker hues but it brings forth a farmhouse charm that is undeniable. 

Sometimes minimal kitchens can feel a bit empty. With that being said add a small table to the area with a few chairs or a breakfast space that is simple yet makes perfect sense. Doing so will add this family vibe that will bring together your décor.

Add a little something extra to your minimalist kitchen for a grand effect that still makes sense to the space. Which of these will you add to your home? Please let us know in the comments below.
