Kitchens are such an important part of any home; whether you have a tiny studio apartment, or a mansion, kitchens serve a practical and an aesthetic function both.
In recent years, minimalism has picked up as a trend in various aspects of social and personal life, including fashion, home décor and interior design. Less is more, space is valuable and lifestyle shifts and approaches, such as the KonMari method,
have put perspective on the urge to hoard, own and keep everything in our homes.
People are increasingly opting for minimalist interiors in their homes, especially their kitchens, which are important workspaces too. Some of the best tips, kitchen designs and ideas for minimalist interiors are:
1) Get rid of clunky old appliances
This may seem drastic, but for the minimalist kitchen of your dreams, it’s incredibly important that you get rid of any old appliances such as microwaves—which can be quite harmful anyway
—broken blenders, juicers and any other appliance that you don’t really use or can do without.
Remember, less is more and in fact, old appliances might be consuming excessive energy and costing you more than you realize anyway. If investing in new ones isn’t possible, really narrow down on what you absolutely need and dump the rest, or work on proper storage and usage so it’s not all out on your countertops.
2) Don’t stock up on excessive kitchenware, including knives, dishes and other gizmos
Any trip to a homeware store can leave you with things you don’t need and/or use. Restrain yourself and only keep essential items such as crockery, cutlery, knives and other devices like peelers. Do you really need four chopping boards and twenty knives if you’re not a professional chef?
Narrow down to sets of dishware that you can keep for formal use, daily use and get rid of broken plates, bowls, cups and anything else that takes up space.
3) Invest in storage, both old and new

4) Clean and paint or change the color scheme
Gone are the days when loud, bright colors ruled the kitchen and home. If you can, paint the walls of your kitchen a muted but pleasant color, or go the opposite route for a steely look that complements your interiors.
Clean out all the corners, drawers, stove and work on maintaining that for a brighter, more spacious but minimalist aesthetic.
