Yeah its really difficult to achieve the minimalist concept. Reasons being you need ample space and an interior designer/architect familiar with the style, not to me tion a lot of moolah as well.

I wanted to have a stainless steel kitchen for starters but the costs are really beyond my budget so we settled for an all white with silver trimmings concept.

Also my wife does not like to have concrete screed for the floors, so we chose a 'screed' looking grey tile for the flat.

Yes of course we removed the cornices. Those you see are so 80s, including the cabinets.

Well to paint a better picture, here are the 3D images:

Well the colors are more or less there, but more details in terms of materials and colors to be decided.

The 3D drawings are only a rough indication of what to expect.

like this part of ur kitchen.... :good::good:

look sleek....

Thanks! We will be using Formica 2mm glossy white laminate for the main facade, and most like Lamitak or EDL Dark Silver for the carcass and trims.

Since can't afford a 100% stainless steel kitchen just use laminates but not so much that it becomes overwhelming and too trying. Moreover our flat is really dark even in the daytime, so using mostly white will help to lighten up the atmosphere.

Will post images of WIP real soon.

Congratulations on your new home.

Applause to you. Very nice 3D pictures that you have created. I wish I know the skill on how to do it.

i believe the 3D is done by his ID. you can try using floorplanner or google sketchup for ur DIY 3Ds.

Yes the 3D is provided by ID.

However the floor plan was draw by me using Illustrator. I find that Floorplanner is not so precise but for rough layout its okay.

As for google sketch, I have not figured out how to use it yet. Haha.

Anyways as far as getting the stainless steel look goes, although all our main laminates will be from Formica, we will be using either Lamitak or EDL laminates for the silver trims. FOrmica has very little to choose from in terms of metallic finishes. And the very nice ones are way too expensive.

We're pretty sure the whole thing will turn out nice and sleek, just that I'm concerned about the laminate join lines....

Illustrator is one of the softwares from Adobe that I use for my work, along with Photoshop etc. Its not a free online software, need to purchase.

If I remember correctly from the catalogue the 2mm laminates from Formica is about $98 per sheet 8'x10'
