Maximalism in the Kitchen – 3 Things You Need to Know

Maximalism, which is typically described as a design aesthetic that is characterized by the use of bold and unapologetic geometric shapes and patterns, has been a constant on the design scene for some time now. In recent years, maximalism has made its way into many industries – from fashion to music – and has become a major design movement that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.



This kitchen design is often called the more dynamic form of transitional style, which is another way of saying maximalism is a blend of modern and traditional. 


Maximalist design pieces are defined by their repetition of patterns, shapes, and textures. This style is also known for its emphasis on handcrafted (or craft-like) elements, luxurious finishes, the use of bespoke (custom-made) items, and the use of strong color schemes. Maximalism also uses a lot of geometric shapes or bold lines and sharp angles. It tends to be more popular in the kitchen than in any other room in the house. 


This is a bold style that uses a lot of strong colors, geometric shapes and patterns, natural materials, random textures thrown together in an exciting jumble of colors, shapes, and patterns. Maximalist kitchens are often designed with a lot of open space on the walls and cabinets to accomplish a clean look that doesn’t appear cluttered. They also tend to include a lot of random and unexpected decorations, such as decorative tiles or art that doesn’t seem to fit with the other elements in the kitchen.



These kitchens often include a lot of patterned flooring and old or weathered wood. This style also goes with a wide range of current design styles such as farmhouse and vintage. Maximalist kitchens are all about the drama, and you’ll see this design in kitchens with a lot of metal hardware, hardwood flooring, and dark colors. 

This design is very striking, and people love maximalism because it’s a great way to make a statement. It’s best used in spaces with high ceilings and architectural details, as maximalist homes tend to look larger due to the use of many design elements. Maximalism is also a great choice for those that want to experiment with bold colors and textures, as well as oversized pieces in the home.

Well, perfectly. Shaker-style cabinets do look timeless and simple, but as we wrote before, they are great for creating rustic, farmhouse, or vintage styles. Since maximalist style requires a lot of statement pieces, shaker cabinets are perfect for soothing the drama in your kitchen. For example, you have a lot of colors to work with, and the whole kitchen looks very colorful. Adding white, simple cabinetry will tone down everything and highlight the most wonderful colors.



Maximalism is the perfect style for homeowners who aren’t afraid of a little drama. Maximalist kitchen design can be fun, and it allows homeowners to highlight their personal style. Maximalist design is perfect for those who want a kitchen that makes a statement, and maximalist kitchens can be beautiful, practical, and perfect for any style of home.


In combination with white shaker cabinets, maximalism reaches its full potential. Highlighted colors and statement pieces will make your kitchen vibrant, bright, and creative.
