Three Beige Kitchens, Three Different Looks

, , , , , , , , , , , , By Catherine


When it comes to kitchen design, it seems that beige is the new white!

It is no surprise that with the growing popularity of light earthy hues and monochrome interiors, the trend would quickly reach the heart of the home: The kitchen.

Sand or almond colored cabinets have won the favors of designers, especially in the Nordics. Beige is a versatile neutral and, when layered with similar shades, creates a soft, calm and harmonious style that is sophisticated and modern. It makes a kitchen look clean and bright, yet with a warmth that an all-white look can’t compete with. Plus it fits classic shaker doors or more modern flat fronts.

Not convinced yet? Here, I’ve rounded up three beige kitchens by different Swedish brands to show you how stunning the result might be. Three looks, but they are all understated, with beautiful Scandinavian aesthetic and a perfect balance between form and function.



Look #1

This beautiful bespoke kitchen is by Nordiska Kök. I am loving the greige color with wooden details and the limestone countertop.

Look #2

Kvänum is behind this beautiful design in lacquered ash in Ax color. The combination with with Fior di Pesco marble, delicate brass knobs add a luxurious feel. Notice the built-in cabinets, one of which has a rippled glass door. Interesting details!

Look #3

This beautiful kitchen is by Marbodal. I’ve actually shown it to you back in February 2019. I was in awe of the stunning styling by Lotta Agaton, and how she chose to match the walls to the cabinets’ shade. This is actually an increasing trend in kitchen design, giving a true custom and exclusive feel.

    The easiest to implement of these basic kitchen layouts is the “one-wall” or “single-wall ” design. This layout is based on placing the sink, stove and refrigerator with any counter tops against a single wall. This type of layout is very flexible and you can setup workstations in any arrangement you like. The only requirement is that the wall you use must be at least 8 feet in order setup all the equipment in place unless you use miniaturized appliances.
