Some people think that the modern idea is something in the hi-tech style or, at worst, minimalism. But, all is not so. The modern solution can be called classic design, and rustic, and the good old avant-garde.
Long gone are the days when designers could impress the consumer’s imagination with something new and unusual. Now there’s just everything and more!
Yes, some very unusual forms of furniture or decoration periodically appear, but they turn out to be very amateurish and cost fabulous money. Therefore, you should not look for something that has not yet been seen, it is better to learn how to design it in a modern style, based on long-known materials and finishes.
For example, combining wallpaper is a modern and unusual move. If sticking with solid canvases – boring. The same goes for furniture, textiles and other elements of the decor.
This is a Provence style kitchen design. Doesn’t that look modern? Very much. Although, this style was invented 300 years ago!
Or, take the same loft: it is modern for us, but in fact, it is already a hundred years old by lunch.
This year, kitchen-living rooms are not as relevant as before. Probably because people fully appreciated the inconvenience of life without wall-doors and decided that convenience should be preferred.
In 2021, ordinary kitchens prevail in which you can close the door and not bother anyone. But here the partitions between the balcony and the kitchen are removed. If you have exactly the case when the kitchen has access to the balcony, then you can safely demolish the wall and design the room as shown in the photo.
There is a plus in this layout – it becomes brighter and more spacious. But on the other hand there is a minus – the windows are too high. Therefore, in this case, we can advise you one thing: if you take up such a layout, be sure to cut off the concrete slab of the balcony and lower the window to the familiar level. So it will be more comfortable, more beautiful, and more convenient.
If this is not done, then the kitchen will not look organic, but simply redone from the balcony.
The priority is simple forms. Bends and wave-shaped lockers are a thing of the past. Now they look not so interesting, but rather – just tasteless and old-fashioned.
Also, too glossy surfaces are not very welcome (especially in combination with wave-shaped cabinets). In general, the emphasis should not be on kitchen furniture, but on appliances, wall decoration, and textiles. But the furniture should be as simple as possible, but at the same time – from natural materials.
The Scandinavian style is very popular, in which natural wood predominates, in combination with ordinary, white walls and an apron made of tiled boar. Here, see the photo below:
Simple, but tasteful! The kitchen design here is made precisely by this simplicity, and, for all its unpretentiousness, such an atmosphere cannot be called cheap. Standard, bright lockers look much cheaper.
The style of minimalism is still relevant and it, in general, is the embodiment of a modern look. High-tech is already losing relevance, and we can not recommend it. Honestly, this is a very uncomfortable style and for the kitchen it is completely inappropriate.
If you like strict forms, then you can pay attention to the loft. It is much more interesting than hi-tech and it has a maneuver for something original. If you are not a fan of such an atmosphere, then you can look in the direction of classics or rustic motifs.
Provence, country – are relevant at all times and there is no need to be afraid that your kitchen may not look modern.
But, remember one thing: in 2021, reliability is important. That is, if you undertake to design in the style of “Provence”, then do it efficiently and do not save on furniture. There is nothing softer than the “Under Provence” setting, when antique elements are replaced with fake …
The same can be said of the classics. If you have already taken up this direction, keep it to the end. Otherwise, it looks extremely ridiculous: a kitchen with carvings and at the same time a smooth, chrome-plated faucet and a stainless steel sink. Here you need at least enamel, and better copper.
Now it’s very fashionable to select everything exactly in tone. For example, if you have a red kitchen, then it is not necessary to buy the exact same lamp and cover it with red covers – stools. It is much better if the colors are chosen contrasting, but at the same time, they should be combined.
Also, do not forget about rule 60-30-10, where 10% is the brightest accent (spot), 30 is a secondary tone, and 60 is the main one. In practice, this distribution is usually this: 60% – walls, 30% – kitchen furniture and 10% – decor elements (paintings, textiles and other “spools”).
And here you still remember this : if your furniture is bright, for example, an orange kitchen , then the walls must be light and dim. And vice versa. If the kitchen is completely boring, then you can safely add decor to the walls or, even better – make catchy textiles.
In 2021, simplicity and naturalness are most popular. Glossy stretch ceilings – they still look fashionable, but according to designers, more and more people are choosing matte canvases.
Wooden ceilings made of caissons or beams are also very relevant. If we talk about color, then everything depends on the height of the ceiling. For example, in a private house, with ceilings of 4 meters, ceilings in the color of natural wood are perfect. But in the apartment, they will “crush” and look out of place.
If the lining is painted white, then the view is completely different and such a ceiling looks stylish even with a small height of the walls.
It may sound unusual, but now it’s much more fashionable if the walls and ceiling are simply plastered and painted smoothly, without any decorations and stucco molding.
Spotlights are out of fashion. And with them – multi-tiered ceilings and plasterboard boxes. The priority is simplicity and naturalness. The chandelier will look good in the kitchen, and if one is not enough, then you can enhance the lighting with the help of mounted sconces.
Very fashionable now are lamps that mimic the usual, electric, but the size is 10 times larger. They are hung on long wires and it looks stylish.
Also, stylized fixtures are relevant. For example, a chandelier made of forks or a lampshade in the shape of a teapot or cup. Look at the photo:
True, this is much better than sore spots?
The color of the walls depends on the color of the headset. If you have it white, then the walls can be contrasting. If it is bright, then the best thing is white walls. Also, pay attention to the photo wallpaper . Drawings can be anything, even with the 3D effect.
The only thing to keep in mind: this will be the focus of the whole kitchen.
And, if you assume an artsy headset, it is better to refrain from photo wallpaper, as they will shift the angle and will attract all the attention to yourself.
If you are not satisfied with the usual painting (but it is still relevant), then you can add something original. For example, it is very fashionable now to decorate the walls with stone. But, this is not about plaster cast, but about the real, natural.
In this case, it is advisable to take a bright stone, such as onyx. It can be illuminated from the inside and as a result, the view of the wall is simply fabulous.
In addition to stone, pay attention to the wooden lining. She still does not go out of fashion.
But, here I want to remind: natural stone implies the absence of modern technology. For example, marble looks extremely stupid in combination with an ordinary, white refrigerator.
If you have a kitchen in the style of minimalism, then bulk floors or tile will be appropriate. And, if we are talking about more homely styles, then the tree “steers”.
Moreover, plank floors, for example, from deck boards, are considered to be special chic. They can be painted, or you can just tint.
Laminate, linoleum are not the most fashionable coatings. These are, after all, budget options and there is no particular kind of them.
Stone floors are still popular, but these are already quite expensive options and not everyone can afford them. If you really like stone, you can pick up ceramic tiles that mimic it. This is not such a modern idea, but it looks decent.
Kitchen backsplashes now – just darkness! Naturally, the most ordinary option is tile and, for some reason, they stopped considering it, trying to replace it with something more interesting.
But, if you compare beautiful tiles and the cheapest stone, it turns out that the tiles are better, cheaper and more beautiful.
Or take glass too. What is so beautiful about him to pay that kind of money?
But on backsplashes made of stainless steel – it is worth paying attention, it is practical and unusual. True, only if your furniture is combined with this style.
If we are talking not only about beauty, but also about convenience, then best of all – countertops made of artificial stone (for example, acrylic). Countertops made of natural stone – have a lot of advantages, they are beautiful, solid, indestructible, but …
Should you inadvertently place a cup or plate on such a surface, it will simply burst, since the stone is excessively hard material. In addition, it is cold, which means it is not very pleasant to touch such a countertop at the time of cooking.
Wooden countertops are beautiful, but too short-lived. Therefore, it is best to choose an acrylic countertop. Just try not to take everyone tired “crumbs” or drawing “marbled”.
A few words about bar counters: they lose relevance. This is especially true for those with chrome. If you put a rack, then some stylized, for example, on brickwork.
If you have a classic kitchen, then choose brass faucets. And, if you have a kitchen in a modern style , then the scope for imagination is small – chrome and stainless steel.
The only thing you can choose here is the shape of the mixer. There are just a thousand of them now and one and all of them are very fashionable.
By the way, do not chase after some insanely unusual design of the mixer, despite its practicality. The most important thing here is a trusted manufacturer.
The coolest of them we previously showed in the article “The Kitchen of the Future “, take a look.
In the light of household appliances – there are always new items. But this does not mean at all that you urgently need to change what you bought five years ago. There are no special changes in design and functions yet, therefore, there will be no noticeable difference between the old dishwasher and the new one.
Of course, it is advisable to take the refrigerator not just white, but some interesting color. Now the built-in appliances are no less fashionable than open, but with an unusual design.
Bright accents in the kitchen are usually made using textiles: curtains and tablecloths. The dining area is a very important part of the interior and it is it – the embodiment of comfort. It is necessary to approach its design responsibly and not to rush. Here, furniture, a combination of colors, and the texture of the wall, next to which stands a table, and lighting are important.
And finally, we offer you a selection of ideas for kitchen decor , which seemed to us the most attractive in 2021.
