What does it mean - a modern solution in the interior?
Some people think that the modern idea is something in the style of hi-tech or, at worst, minimalism. But, it's not like that at all. A modern solution can be called a classic design, and rustic, and the good old avant-garde.
Long gone are the days when designers could impress the imagination of the consumer with something new and unusual. Now there is just everything and even more!
Yes, periodically there are some very unusual forms of furniture or finishes, but they turn out to be very much for an amateur and cost fabulous money. Therefore, it is not necessary to seek out what has not yet been seen by the light, it is better to learn how to decorate in a modern style, relying on long-known materials and finishes.
For example, combining wallpapers is a modern and unusual move. If you paste with solid canvases - it's boring. The same applies to furniture, textiles and other furnishings.
Here, take a look at this photo:
This is a kitchen design in the style of "Provence". Is not it modern looking? Very much. Although, this style was coined about 300 years ago!
Or, take the same loft: it's modern for us, but in fact, he's already a hundred years old at lunch.
Kitchen layout: fresh ideas
This year not so actual kitchen-living rooms, as before. Probably because people fully appreciated the inconvenience of life without wall-doors and decided that it is necessary to give preference to convenience.
In 2017 ordinary kitchens prevail, in which you can close the door and not disturb anyone. But here are the partitions between the balcony and the kitchen - cleaned. If you have exactly the case where the kitchen has access to the balcony, you can safely demolish the wall and decorate the room as shown in the photo.
In this layout there is a plus - it becomes lighter and more spacious. But on the other hand there is also a minus - the windows are too high. Therefore, in this case we can advise you one thing: if you undertake such a planning, be sure to cut the concrete slab of the balcony and lower the window to the usual level. So it will be cozier, and more beautiful, and more comfortable.
If this is not done, then the kitchen will not look organic, but simply converted from a balcony.
What is the design of the kitchen in the trend in 2017?
In the priority - simple forms. Bends and undulating lockers - in the past. Now they look no longer so interesting, but rather - just tasteless and old-fashioned.
Also, glossy surfaces are not very welcome (especially when combined with undulating cabinets). In general, the emphasis should not be on kitchen furniture, but on technology, decoration of walls, textiles. But the furniture should be as simple as possible, but at the same time - from natural materials.
Very popular now Scandinavian style, which is dominated by natural wood, in combination with ordinary, white walls and an apron from the tavern-boar. Here, see the photo below:
Simple, but tasteful! The design of the kitchen here is exactly this simplicity, and, for all its simplicity, this situation can not be called cheap. Where to look cheaper standard, bright lockers.
Which style should I prefer?
The minimalism style is still relevant, and it, in general, is the embodiment of the modern look. Hi-tech is no longer relevant, and we can not recommend it. Frankly, this is a very uncomfortable style and for the kitchen it is completely out of place.
If you like strict forms, you can pay attention to the loft. He is much more interesting than hi-tech and there is a maneuver for something original. If you are not a fan of such a situation, you can look towards classics or country motives.
Provence, country - are relevant at all times and do not need to be afraid that your kitchen may not look modern.
But, remember one thing: in 2017, reliability is important. That is, if you are going to decorate in the style of "Provence", then do it qualitatively and do not skimp on furniture. There is nothing less than the "Provence" setting, when old items are replaced with a fake ...
The same can be said about the classics. If you have taken this direction, keep it to the end. Otherwise, it looks extremely ridiculous: a kitchen with a carving and at the same time a smooth, chrome-plated mixer and a stainless steel sink. There must be at least enamel, and better - copper.
What combination of colors is the most fashionable?
Now it is very unfashionable to choose everything exactly in the tone. For example, if you have a red kitchen, you do not need to buy exactly the same lamp and cover 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 the 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 as follows: 60% - walls, 30% - kitchen furniture and 10% - decor elements (paintings, textiles and other "spillikins"). More details about this can be found here.
And then remember this:: if the furniture you have is bright, for example, an orange kitchen, then the walls must necessarily be light and not bright. 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 2017, simplicity and naturalness are most popular. Glossy stretch ceilings - look all the same fashionable, but according to designers, more people are choosing matte canvases.
Still very relevant wooden ceilings, from caissons or timber. 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 such - will "crush" and look inappropriate.
If the lining is painted white, then the view looks completely different and such a ceiling looks stylish even with a small height of the walls.
Maybe it sounds unusual, but now it's much more fashionable if the walls and the ceiling are simply smoothly taped and painted, without any embellishments and stucco moldings.
Illumination: spotlights or chandeliers?
Spotlights are out of fashion. And with them - multi-tier ceilings and plasterboard boxes. In the priority - simplicity and naturalness. In the kitchen, the chandelier will look good, but if it is not enough one, you can strengthen the lighting with the help of hinged sconces.
Very fashionable now lamps that mimic the usual, electric, but the size have more than 10 times. They hang on long wires and it looks stylish.
Also, the stylized fixtures are actual. For example, a chandelier made of forks or, a lampshade in the form of a kettle, cups. Look at the photo:
Is it, however, much better than the spots that are full of mischief?
Choose the fashionable color of the walls
The color of the walls depends directly on the color of the headset. If it is white, the walls can be contrasting. If it is bright, then the best is white walls. Also, pay attention to photo wallpapers. Drawings can be anything, even with the 3D effect.
The only thing to remember about: this will be the accent of the whole kitchen.
And, if you imagine a fancy set, then it's better to refrain from photo wallpapers, as they will shift the perspective and will attract all attention to themselves.
Look at the photo below, this is how it looks in the interior:
Wall material - original options
If you do not like the usual painting (and it is still relevant), then you can add something original. For example, it is very fashionable now to trim the walls with a stone. But, we are not talking about a cast from gypsum, but about the present, natural.

In this case, it is desirable to take a bright stone, such as onyx. It can be lit from the inside and in the end, the look of the wall turns out just fabulous.
In addition to the stone, pay attention to the wooden lining. It still does not go out of fashion.
But, I would like to remind you here: natural stone assumes the absence of modern technology. For example, marble is extremely silly in combination with a conventional, white refrigerator.
What are the most modern floors?
If you have a kitchen in the style of minimalism, then it will be appropriate to fill floors or tiles. And, if we are talking about more home styles, then "taxis" the tree.
And, especially glamorous are the wooden floors, for example, from the deck board. They can be painted, or you can just tint.
Laminate, linoleum - not the most fashionable cover. This, after all, the options are budgetary and there is no special kind in them.
Still popular floors are made of stone, but these are already very expensive options and not everyone can afford them. If you really like the stone, you can pick up a ceramic tile that imitates it. It's not such a modern idea, but it looks decent.
Apron - which option is more interesting?
Kitchen aprons now - just darkness! Naturally, the most common option is a tile and, for some reason, they stopped to consider, trying to replace something more interesting.
But, if you compare a beautiful tile and the cheapest stone, it turns out that tiles are better, cheaper and more beautiful.
Or, take a glass, too. What is so beautiful in him to pay such money?
But on the aprons of stainless steel - it is worth paying attention, it is practical and unusual. True, only if the furniture you combine with this style.
Countertops - stone, plastic or wood?
If it is not only about beauty, but also about convenience, then it's best - countertops made of artificial stone (for example, acrylic). Table tops made of natural stone - have a lot of advantages, they are beautiful, solid, not killed, but ...
It's worth it to put a cup or a plate on such a surface with carelessness - it just bursts, because, the stone is excessively hard material. In addition, it is cold, and therefore, to touch this countertop at the time of cooking - not particularly pleasant.
Wooden countertops - beautiful, but too short-lived. Therefore, it is best to choose an acrylic countertop. Just try not to take all the annoying "crumbs" or a picture "under marble".
A few words about the bar counters: they lose relevance. Especially this applies to those with chromium. If you put a bar, then some stylized, for example, on brickwork.
Sink and mixer: which design to choose?
If you have a classic kitchen, then choose a brass faucet. And, if you have a kitchen in a modern style, then the space for imagination is small - chrome and stainless steel.
The only thing you can choose here is the shape of the mixer. They are now just a thousand and one and they are all very fashionable.
By the way, it is not worth pursuing some insanely unusual design of the mixer, despite its practicality. The most important thing here is a proven manufacturer.
Household appliances: are there any new items?
The coolest of them we showed earlier in the article "The Kitchen of the Future", look necessarily.
In the light of home appliances - there are always new items. But this does not mean that you need to urgently change what you bought five years ago. Special design and function changes are not yet available, therefore, there will be no noticeable difference between the old dishwasher and the new one.
Refrigerator, of course, it is desirable to take not just white, but some interesting color. Now the built-in technique is not less fashionable than the open one, but with an unusual design.
Textiles & decor
Bright accents in the kitchen, usually done with textiles: curtains and tablecloths. The dining area is a very important part of the interior and it is she who is the embodiment of comfort. Approach to its design should be responsible and not in a hurry. It is important and furniture, and the combination of colors, and the texture of the wall, next to which is the table, and lighting.
