4 Tips to Bring Hygge into your Kitchen Remodel
Scandinavian design has become an increasingly popular trend throughout the home in the past few years. It embraces simplicity and minimalism by emphasizing pale colors, clean lines and exposed wood. This creates a bright and peaceful look in the home. Even more recently, a newer twist on Scandinavian design has become more popular, Hygge.
Hygge (pronounced hugh-gah) is a Danish word that means to attain a feeling of coziness and contentment. Hygge brings together textures, colors, and other finishing touches to bring comfort to your home.
Of all places to bring comfortable Hygge vibes in your home, what better place than to start than the kitchen? Here are some tips for you to implement a Hygge design into your kitchen remodel.
Varying Shades of White and Gray
With Scandinavian design being all about simplicity, it doesn’t get any simpler than white and gray. While these colors may seem frigid by themselves, bringing them together using Hygge can create a welcoming tranquility within your kitchen.
To really match the concept of Hygge, choose natural countertops such as Carrara marble or the absolute newest in indestructible quarts, Sintered by Corian. Pair these with white or soft grey cabinets and bleached wood. This will give your kitchen the Scandinavian influence you’re looking for.
Warm & Brushed Metals
Warmer, rosier, metals are the softer compliment you need to make Hygge come to life. When choosing appliances and kitchen accent pieces, copper and brass are a great fit. Let your imagination run wild, there are plenty of options to help you capture that cozy feeling.
A cornerstone of Scandinavian design is the use of wood. Whether it’s with your flooring, countertops, or cabinetry, implementing pale and soft wood colors helps amplify that welcoming feeling in your home. If you’re interested in creating a farmhouse feel, cabinetry with a natural finish are a great place to start.
The world of Hygge doesn’t just revolve around a white and gray color scheme. Adding pops of color throughout the kitchen in softer shades of pink, blue, and green can perfectly compliment your individual style and enhance the comfort in your kitchen.
When you layer different textures and colors, you can deliver on a space that captures the true spirit of Hygge. Whether you’re cooking, cleaning, or entertaining, you can always feel at peace in your kitchen.
