Soothing Kitchen Colours

Designer Tip

What is Japandi? It’s a furnishing and interior decoration style that blends modern Scandinavian design with the clean and Zen aesthetic of Japan. You’ll love its elegance, symmetry, and minimalist charm.

Comfort at Home
Never be more than a few steps from the coffee machine.By transforming the former half bath adjacent to this kitchen, we created a peaceful and welcoming space dedicated to working from home.

Pro Tips

Carefully plan your home office to make sure it is comfortable and ergonomic without compromising on style. Your workspace counter must be big and deep enough for all your computer equipment in addition to being at a maximum height of 30” (compared to kitchen counters whose standard height is 36”).

Natural and Warm Materials
Go for a combination of finishes that create a calm and serene ambiance, just like in this modern kitchen where grey doors in traditional casings blend harmoniously with wood accents.

Use Flooring to Create Visual Continuity
Using only one type of flooring throughout the room will make it look bigger by not segmenting the space. Choose a material like hardwood that is durable and impact resistant, and that will stand up to spills.

Soothing Light

Since cluttered rooms always seem darker, bring natural light to your workspace by keeping it simple. Rethinking how your living area is organized and planning for enough storage is the key for a bright, clutter-free, and clean space. Combine this strategy with recessed lights and a desk lamp, and you’re good to go.

A Change that Makes the Difference
Protect your walls from splashes and keep your kitchen clutter-free using a half-height backsplash. In addition to creating a lovely contrast, this change will make the room feel bigger and brighter.

Pro Tip

Think about adding shelves above the backsplash for a more open feel.
