How do I select wallpapers to make them look natural?
Why in the kitchen is it difficult to implement this idea so that the end result is happy? But because in most cases it is a question of repair in a small apartment.
And even if there are not even 5-6 squares, like in Khrushchev, but 8-10, it's still a small area for a drawing in perspective. But it is these motives that are the most popular on the market of photo wallpapers and people, not quite imagining how they will look in the interior, take them.
As a result, it is not possible to estimate the entire scale of the vast picture and such wallpapers look like something motley and sloppy. Do not forget that many of them need to be watched from some distance, which in the kitchen simply does not exist!
But, not only the choice of the picture is important.
We still need to figure out how to arrange it so that it does not look like a foreign element. For this to happen, you need, first, to achieve a match for the style of furniture and household appliances, and secondly, the choice of location is important.
Let's imagine, imagine an option: wallpaper with a view of the French ancient street, and next to the chairs on the chrome legs, and on the ceiling a chandelier in the style of high-tech. It would seem that this is an exaggerated comparison, but sometimes it is!
Or, you have classical furniture, and the picture on the wall is an ocean with palm trees ... Strange, is not it?
But that's not all aspects. If you take a picture in perspective, it should not just be glued to the wall. She necessarily needs a frame or voluminous motifs on other parts of the room, duplicating the drawing.
For example, if you have a picture on the wall overlooking the Greek amphitheater, then you need ceiling friezes in a similar style, and decorative masonry on any part of the wall and the corresponding furniture.
You can talk a lot, but is it worth it? Better we'll show you this on live examples with a photo and we'll already have to give them a passing comment. Since the theory is a theory, but visually it is still easier to perceive.
The only thing you need to understand is purely theoretical: if such a design is conceived, then The first thing you buy is the wallpaper.
And already under them you choose other building materials and furniture. If you do the opposite, trying to find something that fits into the existing interior, then in 90% you will not do well.
Examples of suitable drawings for kitchens in vintage style
In this photo you can see how the drawing for furniture is successfully chosen. Outside the window, in the distance, you can see a table and chairs of the same color, therefore, this set looks like a continuation of the composition.
And in this version, the successful location also played a role. The wall on which the wallpaper is pasted goes a little deeper and from this the motive seems to be a continuation of the room. And, of course, it is important that the tones in the kitchen correspond to the color of the stone on the wallpaper.
And this kitchen is so organically fit into the picture of street life, which is simply amazing! The working table and textiles are matched to the color of the picture, accessories and chairs correspond to that era.
That is why everything is harmonious and there is an effect of presence there. You can imagine that you are sitting in a cafe and looking out the window, and you have a long dress and a beautiful hat, fashionable at the time.
And here the wallpaper in the frame of a decorative stone, matched to the color of what is depicted. And so, they seem even more realistic and the relief difference gives a depth.
Examples of suitable drawings for modern kitchens
In the case of all sorts of trends in modernity, drawing is much easier. Here you can use not only the wallpaper, but also any geometric compositions, flowers and so on.
Look, what exactly is appropriate if you want to decorate the kitchen with the modern direction.
Here you can see huge strawberry berries, and they match the color scheme with furniture, and the glare on them is in harmony with the technique of stainless steel. As a result - a stylish look and nothing superfluous.
And here are the flowers, circled in black, which fits perfectly with the chairs. Against the background of white, neutral walls, the composition "plays" very brightly.
Here these wallpapers are stereoscopic, that is with 3D effect. They look very organic, because the blue color scheme on them completely coincided with the color of the walls of the kitchen, and the chairs repeat the coloring of the doors and frames in the picture. If the floor were picked up in tone, the complete illusion of immersion would come out.
Successful examples of wallpaper near the table
Wall-papers in the kitchen are often glued near the table. Above you have already seen a couple of successful examples of such a plan (for example, a table with chairs next to the open doors leading to the embankment). Here are some more successful songs.
If you place a drawing near the table, and even more so if it is volumetric, do not forget about the proportions. They should not be very different from real interior items, otherwise the look will not be very good.
Here's an interesting example. Here, the wallpaper imitates a real wooden beam, which is combined with color and texture with furniture.
This photo is remarkable that with the help of photo wallpapers it was possible to completely distort the space and recreate the effect of presence.
Unsuccessful examples of photo wallpapers near the table
And now we will consider unsuccessful variants of photo wallpapers near the dining table, and without further ado you will understand what we mean.
As you can see, here this glowing American city does not need anything at all. It looks especially strange with semi-Soviet furniture and a window through which daylight beats.
Here the flowers are realistic and so huge that the furniture on their background simply dissolves and there is no kind at all. It looks alapisto and strange.
Here the idea is not bad, the proportions are sustained, but the color is too piercing, there is no such thing in nature. From this, the drawn window looks completely unwell.
And this photo - just a standard of bad taste and strange thinking designer. Let us forgive those who invented this, but by such a demonstrative example it is simply a sin to pass by and keep silent.
Not only that the picture with the perspective is too close to the eyes of the diner, so also the theme goes against the real views from the window!
On the wall there is a small street of some Mediterranean town and cobbled paths, and on the street there is a Russian birch and a riotous weed!
This example can not be called very scandalous, but still ... Elephants, Arabian horses with riders of the same nationality, mosques and a loving couple standing in the distance are depicted ... There is a veil on it, a turban on it.
And against the backdrop of all this splendor is a set in a style that you will not find in the Arab countries, although there is a hint of a typical carving in it. And the finish of the walls is classic, not oriental. In general, the discrepancy greatly cuts the eye. And in general - quite nice, of course.
Successful examples of wallpaper on a free wall
Are there wall-papers in the kitchen that expand the space? Of course, if this is a well-chosen perspective with the 3D effect. If the proportions are met, then you will get the effect of presence in place, provided that other attributes of the room are in harmony with the pattern.
But, we already talked about this, therefore, let's see better wall-papers on the wall in the interior of the kitchen.
The wall here is bumpy in appearance, but in reality it's 3D wallpaper! In our opinion, the option is rather interesting and unobtrusive.
And this example can be called semi-successful. The location is chosen well and if the picture was slightly smaller and taken in a natural frame imitating the edges of the aquarium drowned in the wall ... In general, if only you understood the idea.
Unsuccessful examples of wallpaper on a free wall
This example has surpassed all bold design decisions of the world, perhaps. Just look, what a riot of colors, what a wild reality! But just for some reason, looking at this kitchen, the proverb comes to mind: "Make a fool to God to pray, he will break the floor with his forehead."
So, fanaticism in pursuit of realism - it is not necessary.
What kinds of photo wallpapers are and what better to buy
Like all finishing materials, photo wallpapers are more expensive and cheaper. Those that are very inexpensive - on a paper basis.
And besides the good price, there is nothing more to boast about. They are thin, which means that during the gluing it is very easy to make a hall or hole. Then, they are glossy and realistic does not look at all.
And every grain of sand through them shows through! The wall should be perfectly even, sure. Also, the master of finishing should be a pro, otherwise, nothing good will come of it. And judge for yourself, do they come cheap, if you involve a team of workers?
It is better to take something different, more modern. Such photo wallpapers are more expensive, but they are easy to install (if you can call it so) and durable in operation.
There are such types of photo wallpapers:
- 1 Vinyl - this is a washing wallpaper that looks great in the kitchen. There are also matte and glossy textures, look very good and almost not prone to damage due to scratches.
- 2 Non-woven fleece gloves - printed on a fabric basis, due to which they are very convenient to glue. Anyone will cope with this task, not even a professional. And plus everything, they have soundproofing properties and they are not easily scratched. They are also not affected by an abrasion. The price for them is quite affordable, and if you consider that you do not need to hire a master, and quite affordable.
- 3 Satin - created by silk screen printing, have pearly, expensive tide. Often imitate expensive fabrics and feel very similar to them. They are worth more than other options and they are often used only if the furniture and the whole style of the kitchen are pure classics, which involves finishing the walls with a real cloth, not with paper.
In addition, there are subspecies self-adhesive, and there are those that need to be applied to the wall, greased with glue. The first, naturally, is more expensive. And so expensive that even 5 packs of glue, bought separately, will cost less than this difference.
Apparently, they take money for saving you the need to dilute the powder with glue with water and apply it to the wall with a roller. If for you this occupation is too unbearable and heavy, then take self-adhesive.
But do not forget that you still have to buy glue separately. In case a corner falls behind and needs to be glued again with glue.
You can buy wallpapers in the store or on the Internet. Now there are many companies offering a large assortment and having a large photo catalog. You can use it, or you can order an individual design, for example, your photo.
