Modern interior design options for the kitchen in the apartment and private house

The design of the kitchen often takes longer than any other room in the house. There are many reasons for this, but in order not to be mistaken in the choice and make not only convenient, but also beautiful, let us consider the options for interior design of kitchen premises, which are at the peak of popularity in 2017.

How to style the kitchen

Any stylistic design of the room always takes into account several main points:

  1. Regardless of the design chosen, it must correspond to the purpose. The kitchen is a special room where all the members of the family gather in which they prepare food, store food, dishes and other kitchen utensils. If you knowingly make a mistake, it will become something not uncomfortable, but also ugly.
  2. It should be in harmony with the rest of the house. Sometimes it looks ridiculously kitchen in the oriental style, turning into a vintage living room.
  3. To decorate a dining room is better in accordance with its features, but more about this in the following sections.


The finishing of walls in such a room requires certain conditions:

  1. Moisture resistance. The room for cooking is the most humid room after the bathroom and toilet. Steam, heat and regular washing of walls from grease and other natural contaminants will render unfit for any cover not intended for this.
  2. Finishing material should be resistant to chemicals, because the walls are often washed with their help.
  • Tile

Of course, one of the best is and still is the tile. This covering of walls in the dining room will not replace any material. In 2017, ceramics remains in fashion. Conventional ceramic tiles of high quality are both waterproof and impact resistant. Color and variations in ceramics are extensive. You can use a variety of color tiles.

In the countryside the tile under the tree looks great. Such “wooden panels” are not afraid of water or steam, but look very natural.

In connection with the widespread use of classic and vintage designs in recent years, ceramic manufacturers have presented the “fabric” tile. This is an unusual and very fashionable kind of ceramics. Imitation of tapestries looks very natural.

  • Wallpaper

Many people think that the wallpaper in the kitchen can not be used, but this is fundamentally wrong. Do not use paper and low-quality wallpaper – they will quickly become unusable. Especially if the small room, and the table is in close proximity to the cooking area and stove. In the design of kitchens use non-woven or vinyl wallpaper with special impregnation for special stability.

For wall covering of kitchen walls, there is one main requirement – resistance to moisture and the ability to wash off pollution without causing damage to the repair.

  • Plastering and painting

If the room is large enough, then you can cover some of the walls with Venetian plaster with a special coating. The main thing is not to do it in the work area.

If you do not have a good quality hood, then you need to consider that your beautiful and expensive ceiling after a while can become covered with an unpleasant dirty layer. In a fully equipped room, such ceilings are just a find – nice and comfortable.

One of the best floor coverings in this part of the apartment is linoleum. It is well washed, it differs in a variety of colors and textures. Linoleum for the kitchen should be of high quality, as it is subjected to permanent destructive effects of water and soap. If you decide to lay an inexpensive synthetic linoleum, you should remember that it has a maximum service life of 8 years.

Window and curtains

Window decoration should be thought out in accordance with the design and specificity of the room. If your kitchen has a large area and is divided into zones, then the design of the window opening can be any. But if it is medium or small, then it is better to use blinds. This kind of curtains is easy to clean, clean and looks great in different modern interiors.

From fabric curtains, try to choose not heavy and sufficiently light fabrics, which are easy to wash. Usually it is viscose or natural linen or cotton. Heavy drapes are better not to drape, because caring for them is not so easy.

Small kitchen Khrushchev

This option is not suitable for everyone, and therefore will have to decorate the kitchen the way it is. First of all, remember the mandatory characteristics for all the finishes of a small room for cooking: moisture resistance, impact resistance, the possibility of frequent washing and the lack of reaction with fat. There should not be anything that can quickly fail: paper wallpaper, bleached walls, poor linoleum or ceramics, woven curtains, wooden coatings without appropriate impregnation. If you use wallpaper to expand the space, then they should be non-woven, if the apron – tile or skinned.

What can not be done with the design of a small kitchen:

  • Use dark colors – they visually reduce the space;
  • To glue wallpaper or a tile of too bright or poisonous colors – from such a tiny room you want to quickly escape;
  • Apply very large or geometric drawings on wallpaper, tiles, curtains. These images can not be seen, and geometry, in addition, reduces the size of the room.

Kitchens in a private house

A feature of the kitchen in a private house can be the presence of a stove or an open beam ceiling. In this case, it is very difficult to apply high-tech style decor. The preferred options are retro style, country, provence or classic. You can decorate the room with bunches of flowers, herbs or onion braids. And from wood, impregnated with moisture-repellent compounds, execute benches or a table – this will give the interior a special chic.

Kitchen design combined with balcony

Be sure to keep in mind that you can not do this illegal redevelopment. It threatens with big fines and a prescription to return everything in its place. But if the combination is legalized, and you have such a fine kitchen, then you can plan interesting design solutions. The most popular is the use of a balcony or loggia area as a dining area.
