This year, it is not recommended to put the main emphasis on the kitchen. Designers preferred to place emphasis on other interior details: an apron, floor or wall covering, accessories. At the same time, the latter should be used at least, because the interior fashion of 2021 is spacious kitchens without extra details.
Creating any interior always requires a creative approach. Paying attention to modern kitchen trends, do not forget about your own desires and feelings. After all, the main thing is to achieve comfort in the space where the hostess is the longest – in the kitchen.
The trend of the coming 2021 is minimalism and environmental friendliness. Over the past few years, many companies have advocated using natural or recycled materials, taking maximum care of our planet. Various eco-activists, like Greta Tunberg, are also calling for the same.
The main requirement of the modern style of the kitchen – the design should not be loaded with a lot of furniture and household appliances. A minimum of decor is what you need. For a small kitchen, this rule is most applicable – because the hostess, for sure, is thinking about how to make the kitchen more spacious and saves every centimeter of space. Decor should be a minimum, but an unusual form, with the use of eco-materials.
There are several styles for the design of the kitchen, suitable for the trend requirements of 2021:
- Eco style
- Art Deco
- English style
- Pop Art
This is a combination of two or more styles that are not fully recreated, but only some decor elements are used. To avoid overloading the interior, designers do not recommend combining more than three styles. Eclecticism is a combination of textures, patterns and shades. A combination of high cost and simplicity is considered an interesting technique when creating an eclectic style: for example, a sofa with gilding, an uncomplicated table, wooden chairs – in one kitchen.
Eco-style – the style of the future
Items from recycled materials are the main trend of recent years.
The eco-style is suitable for deep blue with the addition of a green hue, emerald, gray with a pearl gamut, mustard, olive, dusty rose color. Deep tones can be used in combination with geometric and graphic prints. For 2021, everything related to the tropics is applicable as a pattern: jungle, parrots, plants.
Luxury is always in fashion and 2021 will not be an exception. This style is becoming more and more popular, because luxury is not only a manifestation of wealth, but also a sense of security, safety, which is an emotional component of the trend in the interior. For the same reason, Baroque styles and palace classics are popular.
The Art Deco style loves the use of metallic, reflective surfaces on both wallpaper and furniture.
Based on the name of the style, furniture and decor in the interior should be a minimum. This will increase the space visually and functionally. Minimalism is a great choice for a small or narrow kitchen, as well as for a studio apartment.
In this style, geometric and concise forms are preferred. The abundance of textiles, as well as the complexity of decoration, are not appropriate here. By the number of shades in the kitchen, the best solution is 3 colors: neutral, calm, not bright. Household appliances are only built-in, because any pile of objects will make the kitchen “heavy”. At the same time, do not forget about the lighting, which should be as good as possible.
Kitchen in the style of minimalism – this is perhaps the ideal kitchen of 2021. The design is fully consistent with the main trends of the year.
This is a combination of the British style of decoration and classical techniques, conservatism and modern technology, aristocracy and practicality, classics and comfort. The English style is characterized by the use of natural materials (stone, wood, ceramics), artificially aged furniture, a spacious dining area, bright lighting, the presence of accessories made of copper, bronze. At the same time, the kitchen set is made in the classical style of a simple, uncomplicated form.
The color palette is calm, often light colors: light olive, blue, light gray. The color scheme should not include more than four shades. The English style is the presence of a natural finish, floral or floral print, the use of wood.
The above photo is not the best example of actual kitchen design. This design needs to be finalized: checkered fabrics should be replaced with plain ones, close transparent facades with deaf ones, and remove small things from view. The vase on the table should remain in splendid isolation.
Classics will never go out of style. If you are not striving for vivid experiments or you are a supporter of simplicity, rigor and constancy, the classic style will be a great choice. Modern classics do not have pronounced conservative decisions, and the interior is spacious, calm – exactly what residents of megacities strive for.
The color scheme is light, pastel colors. Classic is most often a spacious dining area with a large dining table. Natural materials are preferably used in the decoration.
Characteristic features of this style are furniture of non-standard shape, vivid pictures, variegation, an abundance of neon, acid colors, gloss, prints, and hand-made decor. All this makes the interior fun and festive, creative and unusual. Pop art is a style in which decor elements that are completely incompatible with each other are often combined.
When creating this style, simple, inexpensive materials are used, so pop art is considered one of the most economical styles.
2021 offers us to move away from bright, eye-stressing accents, as well as from the abundance of various accessories in the kitchen, at least in prominent places. New items include mainly noble deep shades:
- Neutral palette: a sky blue hue, the color of fresh greens, which are great for eco-style. They can be diluted with pleasant berry scales or bright yellow spots, reminiscent of the gentle summer sun.
- The blue color is still in trend, especially its muffled, calm shades – deep and complex.
- Ocher or persimmon color is fashionable for 2021, not very bright, warm, a shade that sets up positive thinking.
- Shades of gray are perfect for the interior, especially light, light, faded options. Gray blends very well with wood texture.
- White is the main color of trend minimalism. Despite the fact that it was the deep dark shades that prevailed over the fashion of 2021, white is unlikely to ever go out of fashion, because this is a classic of the genre. In this case, it is not recommended to completely “immerse” the kitchen in a sterile white abyss – dilute with warmer, softer mint or olive shades.
- Gray-green is the absolute trend of the year. Such a pleasant shade was created to calm, to get rid of the city rush. Gray-green – a deep, aristocratic shade that goes well with white.
- A pistachio or olive hue is similar in tone to the previous, but slightly softer in terms of perception. Pastel shades of green or swamp color remain relevant, because they are in fashion over the past few years.
From the above examples it follows that the trendy colors of the kitchen are as close to natural as possible, able to fill the interior with tranquility and comfort. In addition to the usual soft colors (terracotta, coral, calm yellow, “dusty rose” color), a new color appeared in the new year – “ pacifying dawn ”, proposed by the international paint brand DULUX. This is a pastel green shade that is perfect for the kitchen. And that’s not all. Designers are betting on another wonderful color – neomyat. It is he who is given preference when choosing a shade for the interior of 2021. In the kitchen as well.
Gloss is a thing of the past. And many designers will agree with this. Fingerprints on a glossy surface are pretty tired, instead came matte facades of mostly dark shades, which we wrote about above. Also, the 2021 trend is monotonous.
The fashion of the L-shaped headsets has been replaced by a linear one – the same tribute to minimalism. Manufacturers also move away from thick countertops. Thicker doesn’t mean better. The materials produced today are so durable that there is no need to thicken them. At the same time, interest in countertops made of natural stone has remained.
The visual integrity of the facade is achieved by refusing the handles using a hidden door opening system. Handles do not collect dirt and do not attract too much attention.
Three-tier kitchens (or kitchens to the ceiling) are still in fashion. In such headsets, an additional upper level in the form of mezzanines is built above the upper hanging cabinets. This allows you to increase the functionality of the kitchen, unloading the lower cabinets from kitchen items rarely used in everyday life.
The depth of such cabinets is similar to the bottom, but everything is done at the request of the client. A similar layout came to us from the Scandinavian countries and looks great in a spacious modern style kitchen. This style is perfect for studio apartments.
The main trend of the kitchen of 2021 is the desire for environmental friendliness, a mixture of styles and simplicity. If you want to create a modern and unique kitchen – do not be afraid to experiment with walls.
When choosing wallpaper for the kitchen, pay attention to soft, natural shades, a delicate print, natural clean materials in the composition of the canvas. Do not try to combine styles within the same room, the trends in fashion are different, sometimes radically different. The fashionable design of the “clothes” of kitchen walls is as follows:
- Gradient wallpaper or ombre is a smooth transition of color vertically from light to dark. At the same time, there is no rule to start with dark scales on the floor and end with light ones under the ceiling. It all depends on your desire, needs, kitchen area and other parameters.
The correct use of color and the transition from one shade to another visually increases the room, making the ceiling higher. In this case, the shade under the ceiling should be as light as possible, almost white. This method is preferred for small kitchens or low ceilings.
Gradient wallpaper brings a romantic mood, calming and relaxing. Too dense and dark shades enhance the psychological effect on the person.
- Wallpaper with the effect of a metal surface or with a foil coating. In this option, it is better to cover all the walls of the kitchen with wallpaper, without focusing on one wall.
- Wallpaper with 3D effect or panels using high-quality printing. As a rule, such wallpapers are intended to decorate one of the walls of the kitchen – to make it an accent. The main goal of the three-dimensional image is to “revive” the room by placing a person inside the composition in order to feel like a part of nature. Indeed, the fashion trend of 2021 is tropical prints: large leaves, wild animals, parrots, etc.
- Monochrome wallpapers emphasize the sophistication and sophistication of the interior. At the same time, a slight bright accent in the form of carpet, furniture, accessories that do not overload the overall perception of the kitchen is preferable.
- Colored canvases are also the trend of the year. Here recommended prints in the form of huge flowers or leaves, colorful animals or birds, a lot of greens in saturated colors – this can be on wallpaper and even on lighting devices (for example, lamps or sconces in the form of wide leaves).
As already mentioned, the main trend of 2021 is natural eco-friendly materials: wood or recycled materials. Everything can be made of wood: kitchen, chandelier, countertop, tables, chairs, etc. Most preferably, untreated wood, as well as made with spraying, “antique”.
In addition to wood, glass is widely used, as well as metal (silver, brass), stone, marble. With the help of them, it is possible to zone the space, to finish floors, walls, headsets, furniture.
One of the most important finds of a new kitchen design is the use of ethnic, Indian, African motifs in the interior. Such a mixture of styles will become an incomparable highlight of the room.
In fashion, the spaciousness, simplicity of the interior, which are achieved by built-in household appliances. You can integrate anything: a microwave, an oven, a dishwasher, and even a coffee machine. Large household appliances should be hidden in the headset, small ones should be put in drawers or cabinets. The goal is to achieve minimalism so that the eye does not linger on an abundance of accessories and equipment. And dust will be easier to wipe.
When using accessories, it’s important not to play too much. Emphasis needs to be made, but everything should be dosed and “tasty”, without excess. In recent years, facades without visible handles or with mortise handles are gaining more and more popularity. A kitchen without fittings, on the one hand, is more functional – there is no dirt gathering around them, also handles do not create any interference when cleaning, and on the other hand, the interior is not visually overloaded with details.
For decor, things of the same eco-materials are used: linen tablecloth or curtains, jute carpet on the floor, etc. In this case, a chandelier or sconce can be made, for example, from dry tropical plants.
The trend of 2021 is invisible furniture in the kitchen. Well, or in a minimal amount. Let the furniture be with a simple, monophonic, not “flashy”, even surface. Despite this, in some kitchen styles it is furniture that can be made a slightly brighter accent, if the rest of the interior is made in calm, restrained, monophonic colors.
Choose furniture from natural materials, the best option is wood. Reed weaving, solid wood perfectly complement your kitchen. Furniture upholstery should also be made of eco-friendly material, for example, organic cotton, linen. For the kitchen, it is good to use dirt-repellent coatings for furniture. Recently, rattan furniture is gaining more and more popularity – it is a material from peeled and dried stems of a tropical calamus plant or rattan palm.
The current arrangement of furniture is the island, if the area of the kitchen allows. Cabinets a headset where household appliances will be built in, it is better to line up along the wall. So you will achieve maximum space in the room.
Unusually shaped furniture is also one of the trends of 2021: a table-sphere, wicker hanging swing chairs, bamboo rocking chairs, etc. This will add an exotic note to the kitchen.
Curtains are an integral part of the kitchen interior. Do not neglect them. What does 2021 fashion tell us? What new products do leading manufacturers offer?
Laconic design is an absolute trend. Straight fabrics and tulle, light and medium density, are in fashion again. At the same time, the length of the canvas is chosen by the owner, but 2021 offers its own fashion – a long curtain to the floor. Short canvases, layering, the use of lambrequins are a thing of the past.
An interesting fact is that the absence of curtains or tulle on the windows is also considered a complete interior. Here, many will breathe a sigh of relief, because curtains in the kitchen are not always a good option – their close proximity to the cooking area provides greasy stains on the fabric.
A small decor of simple plain curtains is allowed in the form of a thin braid with the edge of the canvas. Do not forget the motto of the year: the simpler the better. Manufacturers created a wide range of braid, varied both in width, thickness, and pattern.
When choosing fabrics, only natural materials that are already classics are considered: linen, cotton, silk. Unlike previous years, current manufacturers offer 100% linen as part of a fabric that can be thicker or thinner in thickness.
Perhaps the most unexpected trend in 2021 is wool. It is from her that curtains can be made, which, due to a print in a cage, look like a suit fabric. Especially profitable and rich (and it’s not just about the cost of the material, which is really expensive) woolen curtains will look in the kitchen of country style, English, classic, modern style.
Choose complex, unusual, deep tones by color. The gradient mentioned above can decorate not only walls, but also windows. In addition to plain materials, you can use a print, for example, in the style of the 60s. These are various geometric shapes: circles, polyhedrons, etc.
Curtains have the same tropical theme: prints with parrots, palm trees, wide leaves of plants, animals. A tropical-style Roman curtain will be the highlight of the kitchen interior. Large flowers are also in trend, like lace fabric, cloths with a net – those that were the decoration of the window in the grandmother’s kitchen.
Street fabrics created from special acrylic fiber can now be found not only on the street. Such linens are indispensable for modern kitchens: they repel dirt and water, are resistant to fading, easy to care for, and do not lose color after washing.
Since environmental friendliness is a fashion of recent years, manufacturers surprise us with their ingenuity in creating fabrics from recycled old clothes or loose yarn. The quality of such linen is not inferior to new, so more and more housewives prefer to see just such curtains on the kitchen windows.
Creating an interior is a creative approach, focused solely on the wishes of the owners of the kitchen. Sometimes fashion is not important, because you can not keep up with it. It is important to create such a space in which you want to be, feel comfortable and safe.
