A minimalist kitchen always looks great. It is important that the facility is also functional. Rooms without windows and with a lower ceiling can often look dark, but you can compensate for this effect with light colors and materials. This striking kitchen has one advantage, it has a specific location – on a different level than the living room. A lot of light enters the room through the glass wall. The walnut fronts are in tune with the green surroundings outside.

This small kitchen is mostly black and white, but the countertops and wall shelves made of light wood serve as warm highlights. Follow the new trend of using blackboard paint in the kitchen and make an accent wall look like a good old school blackboard. You can write shopping lists and recipes on it or just let the children draw something with colored chalks.
