Ideas for spacious kitchens
For large kitchens of a square form we use practical ideas for zoning the kitchen. We create cooking areas with the help of a bar rack, glass or plastic partitions, screens, flower partitions, we form an island in the center of the room. The result is a stylish, comfortable kitchen. Practical ideas of designers always help to create a cozy room. Zoning helps not only to bring order to a vast space, but to make it more harmonious.
In a private house, a variety of forms of cuisine and organization of the room are possible, and it depends on your decision whether it makes sense to combine the kitchen and the dining room. Perhaps you would prefer to leave two independent rooms. In any case, a large kitchen requires a beautiful table of wood, a fashionable bar counter, a creative sofa. Small decor elements in this case will be inappropriate.
Consider a variant of the kitchen with a balcony. You can combine these spaces by expanding the space. However, it is worth noting that the kitchen with balcony - it's very convenient and functional, you can store many items and products, which helps to maintain the perfect order in the kitchen. You can also move some of the cupboards to the balcony, making room for a dining group or bar.
Lighting is another way to separate the kitchen area from the living room area. For example, in the cooking segment you will install spotlights, and in the recreation area and reception of guests - an elegant chandelier.
Zoning can also be done by creating a floor or ceiling of different levels. The podium on which this or that zone will be located will be visually highlighted from the kitchen space. In addition, the floor can be made of tiles of different colors, which will also help create specific functional areas. For example, it is possible to form a recreation area with a sofa. The sofa in the kitchen can be corner, can have a classical shape. The main thing is its material: it must be leather or other water-repellent material.
Design of walls
Much in modern kitchen depends on the decoration of the walls. There are various options for painting the walls, their creative design, including using decorative plaster, tiles and photo wallpapers. Designers offer various ideas for painting kitchen walls: there may be versions of creating relief surfaces, combining different textures.

Is your kitchen decorated in high-tech style? This is not an excuse to stop using wallpaper. Modern industry offers us interesting options for color metallic, monochrome vinyl wallpaper, which will look extraordinarily stylish. Choose original wallpaper with an abstract pattern, use a combination of different types of wallpaper, a variety of textures, this is still relevant, especially if you choose an option on the entire wall, it looks very catchy, attracts attention.
If you are a supporter of decorating the kitchen with your own hands, you can choose the type of wallpaper wallpapering in the form of small pieces or large fragments of a shade of a color similar in color. You can also use interesting prints.
Multiple materials will also help you in zoning space. For example, you can choose for the walls in the cooking area an effective ceramic tile of bright color, and in the rest zone - more quiet wallpaper.
Ideas for a small kitchen
For kitchen in a small apartment it is important to choose functional furniture and decide on the color. Your task is to use the existing area intelligently, including a window sill, to purchase shelves, cabinets.

In this case, the sill will play the role of a table, and the kitchen set, placed along the walls, should be compact and functional. In this case, the table should be small in size. You can completely transfer the dining table to the living room, thus freeing up the space of the kitchen for cooking. Place furniture in such a way that the doors of cabinets can be opened without complications. To visually increase the space, you can choose lockers with glass doors, use mirror surfaces.
For the design of a narrow and long kitchen is especially important color. This is not the place for experiments, so the choice is unambiguous: you will need to paint the walls in light colors or use wallpaper beige, cream or other light colors.
