Kitchen Design: Less is More

If you’re going to go all out on your minimalist theme, choosing a soft and calming kitchen colour palette for your walls, cupboards, and the floor is a must. Creamy whites, light greys, and soft greens are colours that will generally be easier to work into your interior. Plus, you can always use appliances to inject a little splash of colour here and there to stop things from looking barren.

Kitchen ranges such as our Infinity Plus Country, combined with a luxurious soft-touch finish, are perfect for adding confidence to your cabinets. Exceptionally easy to clean and with hard-wearing qualities, it’s a perfect balance of style and practicality, so you can create your idyllic country kitchen.

Alternatively, our Infinity Plus Milano celebrates uninterrupted runs of smooth, sleek cabinets to offer a modern look. It’s high-fashion, modern and one of the most desirable kitchen styles on the market today.

Worktops: Smooth Surfaces

As one of the most prominent parts of your design, your kitchen worktops will greatly impact the finished result. By matching your work surfaces to your units or walls, you can help to create the appearance of a smooth surface, something that will help your other features to stand out and create a fantastic aesthetic.

Generally, monochrome worktops look best in a minimalist kitchen design, though with a little creativity, any type of work surface could look great. From laminate to luxury materials such as granite and quartz, our worktops will offer a unique charm to your kitchen.

Accessories: Warm up with Wood

While muted colours that match your kitchen’s overall colour scheme are a sure-fire way to keep your room looking clean and fresh, you don’t want your kitchen to look sparse and clinical.

Add lots of natural wood, such as natural tables, chairs, utensils and even your flooring. Neutral wooden style flooring is a win, as it will always be in fashion and suits any style or shade of kitchen. Wren’s Woodpecker Flooring is a perfect choice, as it comes with an integrated underlay and waterproof, durable properties so it won’t lift if you have any spillages. Naturally-inspired shades such as rustic Vintage Oak and grey SeaShell Oak are a perfect match for a minimal kitchen space.


As mentioned above, you can use appliances to add colour to your kitchen. Opt for appliances in matching colours to create a flawless and non-obtrusive style. These appliances will blend in with the background to keep things clean, clear and under control.

Investing in high-end, minimalist kitchen appliances will help to make your design scheme a success. It will also ensure that your space looks fantastic even when you don’t have time to tidy everything away.

Here at Wren, we understand that every family and every home is different, and that’s why we stock a huge range of kitchen appliances from the biggest brands. You’ll find lots of choices from cooking to laundry, fridges to dishwashers, wine coolers to designer cooker hoods and more!

  • If you’re struggling to visualise your dream design, start by making a mood board. This is a great (and fun!) way to discover your own sense of style and help others understand your ideas too.
