What is a Scandinavian Style Kitchen?
During the 1930s, Nordic countries began to promote a minimalist kitchen style that favored simple living, comfort and function over fancy, trendy features. Now, Scandinavian kitchen design is one of the most popular styles and a favorite of both professional and amateur designers alike. The look is light, bright and airy, and mirrors the Nordic love of the outdoors by incorporating natural textures, plants and rustic elements into the space. The focus on clutter-free practicality, simplicity and function in a Scandinavian kitchen places an emphasis on the people in the space rather than the space itself.
