The benefits of Scandinavian design

The benefits of Scandinavian design

If you’ve started seriously considering a makeover of your existing kitchen, or you’re on the way to a completely new kitchen project, and a call to the Apartment Matters team is no longer an option. Probably one of the first and most important questions you will face during the process is what style and interior design to favour? Will you follow fashion trends and current interior design trends or stick to tried and trusted values? Why not choose Scandinavian design, which has been popular and popular since its inception and is still relevant today? Begun in the 1950s and based on the principles of equality, it has been characterised since its inception by its austerity and simplicity, with a strong emphasis on practicality and functionality.

Clean and modern

Scandinavian style is known for its exclusively clean and simple approach to interior design. This is one of its main differences. It’s modern, practical and at the same time visually pleasing. Simple, modern furniture is easier to care for and keep clean. With its minimalist approach, Scandinavian-style kitchens, by definition, have less space for dust to accumulate. This style of interior design calls for a light, airy and uncluttered space, so being in such an environment can create a relaxing and calming feeling.

Uncompressed but wide

One of the most pleasing aspects of Scandinavian design is the use of clean, beautiful lines in their furniture. This type of furniture visually expands any space – whether it’s a small kitchen in a series or a normal-sized kitchen in your country house. They will visually make any room look bigger. There’s no need to clutter the room with unnecessary and impractical furnishings – it’s better to choose a few, but wisely selected ones. Ones that you’ll find everyday use for and that will give your kitchen an elegant look.


As the Scandinavian style is based on practical principles and is aimed at clients from all walks of life, it can also be a quite successful and cost-effective solution. The original aim and idea of the designers behind this movement was to create high quality, visually beautiful and practical furniture that is accessible to everyone, not just the very wealthy. Scandinavian style therefore offers a wide choice of products in different price categories, not just the top shelf. This is one of the main reasons why Scandinavian style is so popular nowadays, because it offers a modern product at a reasonable price.

Arranged at

Another positive feature of Scandinavian design is that designers and technologists pay close attention to the functionality of furniture when developing products. Simple, but to keep everything organised and in the right places. Enough space to store all the necessary kitchen items. This is a very important factor to take into account – not to be distracted by things that are not used in our daily routine. So they don’t clutter up our kitchen and spoil the visual image of the kitchen. If there are more things and kitchen utensils than space to store them – it can give a cluttered and chaotic impression of the space. That’s why Scandinavian design uses the principle of invisible but accessible. Thanks to functional solutions, everything you need is at your fingertips, but tastefully hidden and integrated into the furniture.


Finally, Scandinavian style uses a predominantly neutral colour palette, dominated by light tones. Light and unobtrusive colour combinations that add warmth and cosiness to any room. Such shades also visually expand the space and combine harmoniously with natural materials, which Scandinavians love to use in their kitchens. Natural solid wood surfaces are highly appreciated, and they work perfectly with acrylic and any other material used in kitchen facades. Solid wood surfaces add warmth and naturalness to the kitchen. As it is an ecological and living material, its use in design adds a pleasant and exclusive effect.
