The realization that thousands of professionals around the globe are working so that we can use the most advanced and technological materials, appliances and appliances for our kitchen spaces can not but inspire. But the most pleasant in all modern trends of design of multifunctional rooms is the popularity of creating an interior with maximum consideration of personal comfort. As in the previous season, the main tasks of creating a modern design were the use of environmentally friendly materials, the search for the most simple and concise solutions and a harmonious symbiosis of practicality and comfort.
The modern rhythm of life dictates the featuresCreating the most effective interiors. The modern hostess does not have time to prepare compound dishes with a lot of ingredients and a long time of languishing on the stove, there is no way to polish table silver, and the devices have long given way to a more practical accessory. In a modern kitchen should be not only convenient and comfortable, but also easy in terms of performing simple work processes, to any household, even a child. Therefore, the integration of safe, high-tech and energy-saving household appliances into storage systems with the most convenient location and content is a priority for any designer (the owner of the kitchen space). The good news is that you can decorate a kitchen with a high level of efficiency of external appeal and ergonomics even if you have a small budget and within a small space.
The main motives for decorating the kitchen in the upcoming season
Modern style of decoration of spacesMany-sided, but at the same time laconic. His motives he drew in such stylistic directions as minimalism, loft, high-tech, industrialism. But even more "home", cozy stylistics are able to integrate their concept into the modern interior - country and eco-style, Scandinavian and Mediterranean motifs can be woven into the general outline of kitchen space design.
The kitchen of 2017 is spacious and brightA room with a rational layout, simple furniture solutions and the most convenient use of all elements. Obviously, for the Russian realities, the implementation of the latest trends often rests on the modest size of the kitchens. That is why the unification of the kitchen space with the living room not only has not lost its popularity, but has become a real mainstream. No matter how far the progress and catering system has taken, the Russians will not stop preparing dishes for family meals in the kitchen areas, they will not stop taking their closest guests at the dinner table.
The combination of kitchen and living room allows not onlyExpand the spatial possibilities, but also create a multi-functional interior that can meet the requirements of the comfort of all household members. Another important feature of combining functional segments within a single room is the level of natural illumination of space. The larger your windows, the better. The lighter the room is, the more it will appear, the more maneuvers for interior design will be for the designer or owner of the home.
Modern style has always been a mix ofThe main trends of design, borrowed in various stylistic directions. The mainstream of the upcoming season will be the so-called "reasonable eclecticism". As a basis, one style is chosen (most often it is filled with conciseness and practicality), and elements from other styles are added to it in a very meticulous way for bringing comfort, coziness and aesthetics. It is the correct dosage of elements of different stylistic manifestations that dictates the success of the design being created.
One of the original tendencies of our timeBecomes a mixture of cutting-edge technology and progressive ways of finishing with deliberately aged elements or surfaces. An antique buffet can coexist with the smooth facades of a modern headset, and the most usual finish alternates with shabby surfaces, deliberately peeling paint.
Equally popular (and will beContinue next season) the integration of retro-style home appliances into the kitchen with a modern interior. More often than not, these retro devices with original (and often bright) design become the main accents of kitchen decoration.
Fashion for everything natural, natural soFirmly entrenched in the current trends, which will soon give way. You will be able to be sure of the purchase of high-quality finishing materials or furniture items made of natural raw materials. Not only durability, environmental friendliness and attractive appearance, but also the urgency of interior items will become a pledge of almost always high cost.
The love of nature has clearly found itsThe embodiment and in color trends for the design of the most popular room in any home - the kitchen. The motifs of earth, sea, stones and vegetation are more popular than ever. Designers draw inspiration from natural elements, embodying color motives in their projects. Their approach is only for their customers - after all, natural shades always help create a special, peaceful atmosphere of the premises, an environment in which everyone will feel comfortable and comfortable.
Let us dwell in more detail on some examplesUse the most popular color solutions. White kitchen will never go out of fashion. The symbol of purity and freshness is so connected in our minds with the comfort of cooking, the sterility of all surfaces, which is difficult to deny yourself the pleasure of decorating the kitchen space in all shades of white. But not only lightness and freshness attract designers and their customers. The white tone is universal, it perfectly matches with any color solutions. Not to mention that to visually increase the volume of a small space, all the shades of white fit perfectly.
White color helps create a sense of spaciousnessEven in a small room. Sunlight, reflected from the snow-white surfaces, freely spreads throughout the room, creating an easy image of space in which freedom seems to be the most natural participant in the interior. In order to bring a color accent to the white kitchen design, you do not need to be a designer. On a snow-white background, the furniture or any other interior decoration of any color is accentuated and colorful.
But absolutely white kitchen will look likeSterile, airy, not cozy. An ideal way to bring natural warmth, comfort and comfort in the snow-white kitchen design is the use of wooden surfaces. Any type of tree, even the brightest one, will look accentuated on a white background. Such an alliance always looks great in a complex with modern home appliances. Even in a room of modest size, the snow-and-wood ensemble looks organically.
Do not leave their positions on the list of the mostPopular design projects and kitchens, made using contrasting color combinations. Most often, designers offer to contrast each other with snow-white surfaces and inserts of dark gray, dark chocolate and even black. Any of the shades of Wenge color will look great in combination with a light finish or white table tops. To avoid too rectilinear contrast of the kitchen image, experts recommend "diluting" the black and white alternation with elements of wood. This can be as the facades of the kitchen set, and the countertops, furniture for the dining area and even the finish or parts thereof.
Do not go out of fashion and the application of variousShades of gray when creating a practical, functional and thus externally attractive image of the kitchen. Neutral shades are good because even non-professionals will be able to cope with combinatorics. Gray shades are easy to combine with wood, always look great in combination with a white tone and dosed patches of bright color. The design in gray tones is not only comfortable for our eyes, but also favorable for creating a neutral emotional background of the room, where every household or guest of the home can feel comfortable.
Decorating the room
No matter how much time has passed, no matter what innovationsWe did not offer any progress in the sphere of finishing materials production, and the special microclimate of the kitchen space dictates its criteria for choosing raw materials for designing the surfaces of a multifunctional room. Constant changes in temperature conditions, high humidity in some areas of the kitchen space and possible mechanical influences complicate the choice of finishing materials, putting practicality and functionality at the center of the corner. But modern technologies allow us to choose options for decorating kitchen surfaces without loss in aesthetics, preservation of environmental friendliness and practicality of materials.
In modern design projects of kitchenSpaces decoration acts only as a background for the main participants of the interior - a furniture set and a dining room. The walls are often decorated in a one-color color scheme. Neutral light shades can alternate with dark contrast, but the use of a print is considered irrelevant (at least when doing kitchen design in a modern style).
Given the fact that harmful (or even slightlySuspicious) for human materials - taboo interiors in 2017, the forefront is natural raw materials. Many designers use cork coating to decorate modern interiors. It is light, warm and environmentally friendly material with its original texture, which is not disturbed by painting. The use of a cork coating is quite capable of replacing the use of decorative plaster, besides, it is not difficult to mount it.
Concrete surfaces (or their spectacular imitation)They do not give up their positions and continue to enjoy popularity with designers and their customers. Light touch of industriality (and hence modernity) gives the kitchen interior even a small concrete surface. Gray color of concrete can be safely called the most neutral, it is easily in harmony with any options for finishing and furnishing tones.
Features of the choice of furnishing
Modern furniture set is a symbiosisLaconism, practicality, ergonomics and aesthetics. Whichever design is not furnished, it should be functional, easy to use and easy to maintain. Modern mechanisms, the latest developments in the field of furniture fittings make it possible to create convenient storage systems even in hard-to-reach places, using rationally every centimeter of the kitchen space.
Use of ready-made furniture solutions forKitchen spaces are significantly inferior in popularity to the manufacture of the headset by individual dimensions. This is due to the peculiarities of planning the apartments of the times of the buildings of the last century, and with a lack of square meters and the desire of customers to obtain a furniture solution that will fully meet their storage needs, the integration of household appliances and the distribution of work surfaces.
The fashion on absolutely smooth facades has a little abated,An increasing number of world brands for the production of ready-made furniture solutions for the kitchen prefer to use fittings. But for many designers smooth facades are still a symbol of modernity. So we can only hope for our own intuition and taste preferences, choosing the best variant for the execution of facades for our kitchen.
Another trend of the present and futureSeason is the use of open shelves for storage as an alternative to the upper tier of kitchen cabinets. In small rooms, this approach will prevent the creation of the effect of a "casket" when a small room completely filled with storage systems visually presses its volume on the people in it. In large kitchen spaces, a combination of hinged cabinets and open shelves is most often used - an interesting design and practical component bribes many homeowners and designers.
If we talk about choosing furniture for the organizationDining area, then the universal option, which could be called the mainstream, no. Furnishing for the segment of meals is chosen based on room facilities, the number of family members and lifestyle features. Someone needs to sit down at the table every evening for a family dinner, several people, while others have enough bar counter or countertop kitchen island for the location of the couple.
If there is enough space in the kitchen forOrganization of the dining area, experts recommend the use of round or oval tables. This form allows not only to add the number of seats if necessary, does not interfere with traffic and is safe for a dwelling in which there are small children, but also looks attractive and home-style cozy. Rectangular and square tables for meals are not less popular - the weight depends on the geometry of the main furniture - the kitchen set. But even in these pieces of furniture, most modern manufacturers have begun to round corners.
If there are no more than three people in your family andMass feasts - not your horse, then a small area for meals, organized on the extended countertops of a kitchen island or peninsula, will be enough. This area for meals is compact and can be done in a very original way. With the help of unusual bar stools or stools, you can bring originality and creativity to the kitchen interior.
Lighting system, accessories and decor
In modern design projects decorationIs reduced to a minimum. In particular, the tendency to reduce the number of elements bearing an exclusively decorative function is noticeable in kitchen spaces. In a room where a large number of storage systems with embedded home appliances need to be located on several quadrant meters, to organize work surfaces and a dining area, there is a risk of creating a clutter effect if the decor is used too actively. Therefore, as a decorative element is often used quite functional interior items - lighting, dishes, cookbooks, live plants, fruits.
In laconic and maximally functionalDesign projects of kitchen premises often lighting devices are the only bright, accent or original elements of the interior, able to stand out against the general background, attract attention and even dictate the fillability of the zone around them.
A bright, outstanding spot on a completelyA neutral background of the interior of a modern kitchen can be a variegated upholstery of a kitchenette or a small sofa, a tablecloth on the dining table or the piece of furniture itself. You can choose a colorful upholstery for chairs or stools, regardless of how the dining area is organized - at the table, kitchen island or bar counter.
Designers pay special attention to kitchenAccessories, and hence the manufacturers of various devices for this multi-purpose room strive to provide as many options as possible for modern, practical and aesthetic equipment. For example, mixers have long ceased to be just cranes for water supply - this modern device helps save fluid consumption, clean it. And while they can look futuristic, equipped with a backlight and amaze with the gloss of chrome surfaces, or be executed in an old spirit with copper or bronze coatings, carved gates and luxurious decor.
