This type of Oak is relatively new in the cabinet design sphere but many are already in love with it. This is a light form of Oak and is a great option if you are looking to lighten and brighten your space. Ceruse is a white lead-based pigment used to coat the wood and make the coloring more muted and emphasize the texture. This technique is used in place of bleaching or whitewashing and is a more simple option.
If you are wanting a darker look, Oak comes in many varieties and can be stained to be darker or lighter like cerused Oak. Whatever your kitchen or bathroom design is, a minimalist cabinet can be formed from Oak.
Having a flat cabinet with no ornate design shouts minimalistic. These slab minimalist cabinets are easier to clean, require less material and are more modern. This style seems to come in and out of style every few years but they are simple and can be made in a variety of colors and styles.
Many individuals use this style in country kitchens to help simplify their décor and color scheme but don’t limit it to just the kitchen. Flat panels would work great in play rooms, offices and bathrooms to provide a clean finish to the space.
Black and Marbled
When you think of minimalist cabinets you may not pick black. This look can be used to make the kitchen stand out and look sleek and professional. Having sleek black cabinets gives you room to incorporate a marble or granite countertop. A marble island can be a statement piece while your cabinets add to it, instead of detract.
Flat cabinets would look best as not to detract from the intricate marble design and help your mind to flow through the space naturally. If flat cabinets don’t jive with your vision there are other simple cabinet styles like Shaker, that can look beautiful in your space.
These cabinets and some dimension to your kitchen. The coating gives a high gloss shine but can actually come in matte, medium and high gloss. These cabinets are also highly durable and more damage resistant keeping your minimalistic design perfect for an extended amount of time.
Just make sure that the lacquer is applied correctly as it can get blotchy. Lacquer will also break down faster with moisture or steam so it is best to keep these minimalist cabinets away from stoves or sinks.
If the high gloss look doesn’t fit your vision, matte finishes are also in style for minimalists. Matte cabinets are the way to go if you don’t want to clean your cabinets as often but they are harder to clean. They also don’t show scratches and have a more natural appearance as they don’t reflect light.
Since it doesn’t reflect light and absorbs it, this finish can make your kitchen feel smaller. Matte finishes help your cabinets to blend in and look more flat, so if other elements in your kitchen need to stand out, matte finishes can be a great way to keep your cabinets simple.
