Do you consider yourself to be a minimalist or a maximalist? Or maybe you land somewhere in between? I personally like to call myself “a minimalist but also a bit extra ✨”. When it comes to designing your kitchen, there are lots of different ways you could go. If you need some design inspiration for your minimalist or maximalist kitchen, read on for some of our favorites.

Is it still technically called backsplash if it reaches all the way up to the ceiling? Either way, we love a good statement wall, and this one combined with oversized plants and vintage finds makes for the perfect maximalist statement.
