Usually an air hole is also built-in. However, the model with minimalistic futuristic design may be an exception.

Table and chairs
Dining table can be massive or light, but always with minimalistic design.
Countertop can be made of different materials.

The combination of white plastic and natural wood in the design of table and chairs will soften the strictness of minimalism and make the interior cozier. In a small kitchen with area from 5 to 7 square meters dining table can be replaced with countertop - sill or narrow bar with minimalistic design.
Wide bar counter or a projecting part of the countertop often serves as a table in a combined kitchen-living room. Transparent furniture will perfectly fit the interior of the kitchen – dining room in minimalism style. Colorless chairs visually disappear in the space and the room feels spacious, however, the colored ones will be a bright accent.
The lighting design brightens up the minimalism interior very well.
LED lamps are very popular. You can optionally change the color of illumination. Look how colored LED lights of the backsplash transform the same kitchen:
In the kitchens with minimalism style, they often use LED backlight of the socle, so the furniture seems floating in the air:
3 popular variants of lighting:
- Spotlights on the ceiling, chandelier or hanger over the dining table, hidden light over the working area of the kitchen set
- LED ceiling lights (behind curtain holder, light panels and strips) and additional lighting over the dining and working areas
- Tire lights or spots in conjunction with illumination of the countertops and dining room
Design of the lamp over the table can be simple (the most popular choice is the form of a sphere made of metal or glass) or unusual. Examples of lamps in minimalism style are in the photo-gallery below.
