While Scandinavian living or bedrooms reveal the style’s versatility, a Scandinavian kitchen is the cherry on the cake.

It flaunts the bold and unique features of the Scandinavian Style and allows you to go beyond white walls. You can actually add a touch of color, blend in timber, focus on clear lines, and leverage the beauty of texture.

Beyond the basics, you can add some plants, use bright-colored cabinets, do strategic spacing and lighting, and go concrete on the floor.

1. Open-plan Scandi with Free-standing unit

Space can be the beauty of a Scandinavian cooking area. But adding an isolated, island or free-standing unit can make it more eye-grabbing.
