7 Kitchen Renovations Where Minimalism Rules
No clutter in sight
Is bare better? For these homeowners, who all renovated with a Sweeten general contractor, the answer is most definitely, yes. They wished for kitchens where the color palette stayed light and bright, and the storage was both expanded—and hidden. Check out their remodeled cook spaces below.
Roxana and Gabriel, the owners of this one-walled kitchen, focused on making it as clean-lined as possible. A hidden range hood and refrigerator, plus deep storage drawers do the trick.
More storage, less clutter. That drove the vision for this 44-square-foot kitchen that maximizes the minimalist look with flat-paneled cabinets and pull-tab hardware.
You’d almost think open shelves don’t belong in a minimalist space, but Jen mastered her desired Scandinavian style while incorporating them. The key? A single-tone color palette and very organized accessories.
From the matching backsplash and countertop to the matte black fixtures, everything about this built-from-scratch kitchen proves that sometimes less really is more.
A wood waterfall peninsula? We’re sold. While the kitchen cabinets in this cook space may lean more on the traditional side, the reserved color scheme and thoughtful mix of wood tones gives it that minimalistic look.
Storage was the main ask in this tiny but mighty kitchen. Cooking supplies are hidden away in the many cabinets (the homeowner’s even said, “sometimes it feels like we have too much kitchen storage”) which is why it looks so streamlined.
The biggest focus of this kitchen renovation? To make the kitchen look well, less like a kitchen. The custom cabinetry with built-in storage and a hidden refrigerator deliver.
