Scandinavian Kitchens: Looks, Function, and Why They Aren’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon
May 7, 2020
When designing a space in a home, you can’t ask for much more than a timeless design
By investing in a kitchen that can withstand the test of time, you’ll not only reduce any revisions or remodels to the design, but you’ll have a space that you will love forever.
Today, we’re going to talk about one particular type of kitchen design that has been steadily growing in popularity and isn’t going away anytime soon. Recently, Scandinavian design has started to enter the mainstream of American kitchens—and for a good reason.
Let’s discuss what makes these gorgeous kitchens such a great choice for any home.

Warm Tones, Clean Lines, Minimalist Details
The most striking aspect of Scandinavian kitchens is the design’s ability to be minimalistic in it’s detailing, while still providing warmth.
Clean lines, simple details, and the lack of clutter that accompany minimalist design can sometimes feel cold. However, Scandinavian kitchens avoid this feeling by including warm tones throughout the space.
However, Scandinavian design principals can be flexible. If you’re looking to create a more industrial kitchen design, you can perfectly implement both Scandinavian and industrial together to craft the perfect kitchen.
Because Scandinavian design is so versatile, it can be finely-tuned to fit your style and taste preferences.
Functionality is Key
You can have a stunning kitchen, but if cooking in the space is a pain, then it doesn’t matter.
The perfect kitchen should look great without sacrificing the homeowner’s ability to cook meals. That’s exactly what Scandinavian kitchens do.
Whether you have a big home, small home, or something in between, implementing Scandinavian design into your kitchen is the perfect way to seamlessly combine both looks and functionality.
In part because of the simplicity of its design, this type of kitchen allows you to move freely within the space for putting together meals without clutter. Also, Scandinavian kitchens lend themselves nicely to modern, simple appliances.
Why Scandinavian Design is Here to Stay
Fads come and go rather quickly. Trends, while they often have a little more staying power, are eventually replaced.
Scandinavian design is neither. Instead, it is becoming a permanent fixture of homes throughout the U.S.—and particularly within Minnesota.
Sustainability is a Key Part of the Design
While America may still lag behind some European nations in terms of their preference for sustainability, overall, more consumers prefer to purchase products that are eco-friendly.
The need for sustainable options has never been more apparent. Luckily, a key detail of Scandinavian design is, in fact, sustainability.
At Puustelli, we stay true to the eco-friendly principle of Scandinavian design with our Miinus kitchen concept and sustainable cabinets.

Our cabinets do not use MDF, chipboard, and formaldehyde-based glues, and we do not use endangered wood species. In addition, we use 100% recyclable biocomposite frames.
Minimalism is on the Rise
Just like sustainability, minimalism is also on the rise in the U.S.
As we mentioned, minimalism is also a key facet of Scandinavian design, making it the perfect choice for people who want to declutter their homes and implement clean details in their kitchen and beyond.
