At first glance, it seems that the repair is not finished. However, connoisseurs love the loft style for its external simplicity and unusualness. This year, he underwent some changes: now in the fashion of adding bright colors.
We liked the design as in this photo: rough finish of the kitchen in gray and a modern rich yellow glossy set.
Even the most typical headset will sparkle if you use facades of two contrasting colors. We advise you to make one of the shades neutral: beige, white. But take the second one saturated – for example, lilac or blue.
Modern idea : Give up straight lines in favor of wavy lines. They not only look stylish, but also visually make the room taller.
By the way, if you don’t want the tone to look alien, add another element in the same gamut – a border for a chandelier of a non-standard shape.
What about such an island cuisine ? Glossy textures, metal household appliances and retro chain lights.
Making a stylish design is easy: the main thing is that there are no more than two old items. They should emphasize the high-tech interior, and not conflict with it.
It is not necessary to make it plain or try to lay out a mosaic of tiles. Now there are more interesting options – we like these.
Match the pattern to the basic design. The reception is suitable for both large and small kitchens. But in rooms up to 10 sq.m. you should be careful with the image scale – it is better to limit yourself to neat patterns or landscape motifs.
Another interesting idea for the kitchen. Not only an apron is now fashionable to decorate. Look in the catalogs or make custom-made headsets with painted facades. A good reception that will make even the simplest interior original.
Previously, fixtures performed only utilitarian purposes. Now they are a full-fledged element of any room. Find a lamp in an irregular shape.
Such clusters of bubbles look very beautiful – what you need for Art Nouveau and other modern design styles.
If you associate them exclusively with drywall, it is time to reconsider your views on interior design.
The round ceiling-floor column in the kitchen-studio looks original and stylish, especially if it is decorated with panels imitating wood. Highlight the joints from the inside with LED strips.
A kitchen in the style of modern classics with the addition of extraordinary elements is a real masterpiece.
Of course, in a typical apartment it is impossible to realize this idea. But in a private house, where the kitchen is located in the attic – why not?
A small window will become an original part of the design and add light to the room. If you like the idea, but there is no way to make a real window, think about imitation. For this purpose, a stretch ceiling with photo printing is well suited.
Eternal classics also belong to fashion trends-2021. However, it never loses relevance.
Modern idea : Previously, with such a design, it was necessary to adhere to certain traditions. But now it’s allowed to step back from them. Stylize the fireplace from the oven, three-dimensional wall panels and hoods. See how a hi-tech technique looks harmoniously in a classic interior?
Last year, we constantly reminded you of the harmony of the color palette. In this, on the contrary, we insist on unpredictability.
A traditional black-and-white kitchen looks completely different if the apron and one or two cabinets are painted in unexpected bright colors – for example, juicy orange.
But this technique has been at the peak of fashion for several years. Maintain a uniform tone. It is better if it is not very standard – white, beige, brown do not become obsolete, but they look corny.
But matte pink or muted azure – what you need!
However, we still recommend making the walls and ceiling more traditional, otherwise the result will look like a barbie’s house.
The owners of spacious kitchens in a private house or large studio apartments are lucky: there is an opportunity to create a beautiful and functional room, as if coming out of a movie frame.
Not so much is needed: natural materials, comfortable lockers and, of course, a kitchen island. And the corresponding area is in a small room and this type of design is difficult to implement.
The last hit is bright wallpaper with volume printing. They look good as a color accent – we still do not recommend gluing them to the entire surface of the wall. A good choice for the kitchen-living room. With their help, you can easily arrange the dining area.
The door, as if borrowed from a cosmodrome, a strange shape of a chandelier… All this, combined with a bright set and an abundance of modern technology looks amazing and will help create a real kitchen of the future.
Pay attention to the materials – glass, gloss, metallic. Wood and standard wallpapers will be a little off topic.
Lace on the curtains is familiar to many. But what about his own lampshade over the dining table? It looks much more original than usual design.
In general, it is customary to experiment in the interiors of 2021 – abandon the standard moves to find your own “highlight” in the design.
Sounds a little absurd, right? Meanwhile, with the help of special panels it will turn out to realize the childhood dream and paint the wall. Or leave useful notes there: a shopping list, recipes, but you never know what else will come in handy?
Choose material from which records are deleted with a sponge – then they will be easy to change depending on the mood and needs. It is better if the accent wall is not cluttered with furniture – and it looks stylish, and it is more convenient to write.
By the way, in this photo another modern idea is realized.
Remember how the kitchen looked 10 years ago. There is a headset against one wall, and a dining table at the other. Now it’s unfashionable. Try to centralize the interior. For example, take out a small table in the middle of the room, and arrange sofas or armchairs around the perimeter.
It seems to be nothing complicated, but the room looks completely different.
Even in a small kitchen in a panel house, it is really possible to create a beautiful interior. To do this, you need to work with textile elements.
For small rooms, buy blinds or roller blinds. They perfectly perform their functions without taking up space.
A quick tip: discard plain fabrics in favor of printed fabrics to match the interior. They look stylish and help ensure design integrity.
However, the main decoration of the kitchen does not have to immediately catch the eye. How about an unusual bright carpet ? For the interior in a modern style – what you need. Choose neon shades that partially overlap with the overall color scheme.
For the rest, adhere to the spirit of minimalism: do not distract attention from the main emphasis.
At the peak of fashion in 2021, metal textures. But do not confine yourself to the usual details: pens, appliances, countertops – this is commonplace.
But the round chandelier with gilding looks interesting and unexpected. It is better if there are not too many such elements: a good solution is two identical fixtures decorating a kitchen made in a matte texture.
The classic white color seems to never lose its relevance. However, now it is increasingly being used as a background.
Try combining a traditional, light interior with catchy-colored colored wallpapers, such as turquoise with patterns. They refresh the room, making it stylish and beautiful. From here we take the following convenient trick:
Even in kitchens of 12 square meters, it is easy to equip a real dining room. Just choose small format furniture.
The topic will be a round table for 3-4 people. It goes well with a double sofa – an unexpected element in a small kitchen, right?
We have already written about this design method more than once. But he does not lose relevance. Buy a printed stretch web, which on both sides partially goes to the wall. Thus you outline the working area of your kitchen.
Interesting move: Choose a floor insert that matches your style. Place it under the dining table. So the interior will be harmonious and holistic.
Cafe style does not go out of fashion. We advise you to beat him with modern motives using LED tapes.
Light the cabinet where you put a variety of bottles and beautiful glasses. In addition, you have to work with a bar. She also needs hidden lighting.
Such a high-tech interior looks unusual. True, you need to think about what to do with the refrigerator. You will have to decorate it accordingly or hide it.
Owners of kitchens combined with a loggia are in a winning position: most household appliances are easy to bring to the former balcony.
Do you still think that the dishes should be hidden behind the doors of the cabinets? This view is out of date.
If the kitchen has an island, place a hinged wooden panel above it, to which various utensils are attached.
We recommend copper pots and bright potholders or hot coasters. Modern and stylish.
By the way : Attach several small fixtures to the same panel. However, make sure that they do not warm decorative elements – it is better to choose models with LED lamps. Or choose a decor that does not melt when heated.
No need to think that most modern ideas are based on high-tech or borrowing design trends from other countries.
In 2021, stylization under the classic Soviet design was popular. Suddenly, huh?
Simple headset shapes, muted colors and matte texture. All this is done easily, and is inexpensive. The only difficulty is the selection of suitable household appliances.
Probably, it will have to be bought to order – recently, suitable models in stores are becoming less common.
By the way: Sometimes small accessories will help to create the right atmosphere, not a major overhaul.
If you combined the kitchen with a balcony, then you got a chance to make a comfortable and stylish bar in place of the windowsill. Everything is quite trivial. Therefore, we recommend adding a highlight: a high wine shelf.
For those who do not like alcohol even as a decoration, we recommend replacing the bottles with curly jars of jam or marinades. Both beautiful and practical.
Another modern trend is working with forms of furniture. Abandon the usual straight lines and square lockers. Non-standard solutions are in fashion. The main thing is that such a voluminous headset fits indoors.
You do not know how to decorate a tiny kitchen of 6 sq.m. ? Think of kitchen motif patterns on aprons or headset facades.
There are not so few of them as it sometimes seems at first glance: vegetables and fruits, sweets, spices, coffee beans. Even if the basic interior design does not differ in anything special, such an emphasis will make the room more interesting.
Tip : Try to maintain the main color scheme to match the image. An exception is permissible only in the form of one or two bright monophonic elements.
30. Live Fire
Not every room will be able to place a real fireplace. But in apartments with a modern layout of the kitchen, this is quite real.
Try combining classic wooden furniture with high-tech black-and-white appliances: spectacular and unusual.
Expert recommendation: If you are afraid of live fire, install an electronic fireplace. For high-quality models, imitation looks very reliable.
The kitchen, combined with the living room, looks quite catchy, if you complement the interior with an abundance of lighting. Try to lay out the geometric shape on the ceiling and mask the lights behind the wall panels and under the plasterboard ceiling.
It will take a lot of effort to implement such a project, but the result is really amazing.
Important : Do not rush to abandon the use of classic lamps, they are now in trend.
To make a beautiful kitchen in 2021, you do not need special tricks: sometimes it is enough to choose the right furniture.
In the fashion of a headset without visible transitions of elements, creating the effect of an integral design. After the purchase, you only need to pick up a few accessories – the original interior that is ready for the latest modern design ideas is ready!
If you look at the catalogs, it is noticeable that this is one of the most fashionable combinations.
Keep in mind that it looks extremely luxurious, which means that you will have to carefully consider every little thing. Refuse such repairs in the kitchen in Khrushchev – there it seems too pretentious.
But for a spacious kitchen-dining room-living room – what you need!
For some reason, there is an opinion that patterns and drawings must be integral.
Novelty of design idea – a picture, as if cut into several parts. This effect looks best in a white kitchen: a monophonic apron and a set, on the facades of which parts of the photo are printed, gathering in a single whole.
Modern, stylish and easy to implement.
Oriental traditions enter our lives at a frantic pace. They touched on interior design.
If you want to create a cozy and comfortable environment that, according to beliefs, brings happiness to your home, check out the basic principles of Feng Shui.
Modern design ideas in eco-style have undergone significant changes. A couple of years ago it was enough to use exclusively natural materials – now everything is much more interesting.
We offer this option: textured walls with wooden inserts, an abundance of white, green and brown tones.
Thanks to the 2-color wallpaper imitating a real lawn, the room looks very unusual – we recommend it!
Do not want such a complex interior? Find one original item that will become an authentic decoration of the kitchen. For example, a volumetric mosaic on an apron. It’s easy to do, but it makes an impression. Choose a pattern in one of this year’s design catalogs – there are many interesting variations.
This technique is good with almost any style of interior decoration, so designers appreciate the versatility.
In a studio apartment in the first place is always the issue of zoning. If you do not have the opportunity to make a spacious kitchen, it is easy to outline a small territory with the help of partitions and a bar counter.
To make it more harmonious, discard the corner headsets – give preference to direct ones. Place them parallel to the rack, and on the side fence off with a thin plasterboard partition.
Minimum loss of functional space in a stylish interior.
The modern design of the kitchen involves a reasonable combination of beauty and utilitarianism.
We recommend abandoning stylish, but not too comfortable headsets. Choose those where there are enough shelves and drawers. It is comfortable and fashionable, like all furniture in a minimalist style.
When decorating, they often forget about refrigerators, ovens, and microwaves. This is fundamentally wrong. It is better to use them as a bright accent that immediately catches your eye.
For example, a red refrigerator in a white kitchen. Such a colorful spot attracts attention and makes the interior fashionable and modern.
Are you sure you are able to maintain a constant order? Think about the latest design trend – shelves with or without glass facades. Oddly enough, this technique helps to visually increase the space: we recommend it for use in rooms of any size – from standard ones of 9 sq.m. to large in private homes.
Even such an area seems huge to you, because in a small one-room studio there is simply no place in the kitchen?
Modern ideas allow us to solve this problem without much difficulty. Choose a versatile kitchenette that takes no more than 4 squares. In addition, they look great.
An original way out of a seemingly hopeless situation.
If you get permission to redevelop it, then you can easily implement the popular trend of 2021 – the kitchen with open access to the balcony.
Equip there a dining room, a lounge area with a bar or a place to relax – everything that seems necessary.
The only negative: you have to seriously spend money on warming the room. But, in our opinion, the costs pay off.
This trend is a logical continuation of the previous paragraph. This year, designers appreciate the abundance of light.
It is not necessary to achieve it, trying to establish a maximum of fixtures. Make large panoramic windows.
Nuance : For those who live on the ground floor for obvious reasons, this advice is not suitable.
If you think that the term refers only to advertising – you are mistaken. Now it is fashionable to apply logos on the surface in ordinary home kitchens.
Of course, it is better if they are themed and suited to the kitchen theme. For those who prefer a cafe style – a very winning move.
We simply cannot afford to ignore this trend. Expensive, laborious, requires constant care… But how beautiful!
Still not sure what this is about? About the kitchen, where a huge aquarium made of shockproof glass is used as a kitchen island.
Let’s not hide: the implementation of such a design project will require enormous costs in all areas. But your kitchen will definitely surprise everyone, so if you can, we advise you to try it.
2021 is characterized by an abundance of a variety of design trends: from familiar classic to completely unexpected. And this means that everyone will find a suitable option. The main rule: do not be afraid of experiments, then everything will turn out!
