One of the main trends of today’s interior fashion is the desire for conciseness, convenience, and functionality. So the choice for modern kitchen design is more than justified. But to make the kitchen from the utilitarian room become a territory for culinary experiments and communication, it must be both practical and beautiful. How to achieve this? Listen to the advice of famous designers Ruslan and Maria Greene, masterfully mastering the art of creating exclusive interiors for life, and look into their portfolio.
KITCHEN DESIGN IN A MODERN STYLE: A TRENDY PALETTE
Bright colors, elegant cream shades or urban grayscale? For the kitchen design in the modern style (loft, minimalism, hi-tech, art nouveau, art deco) any coloristic solution is suitable! The most popular are neutral tones (sandy, beige, milky, coffee, gray), but saturated colors still do not go out of fashion.
ELEGANT CREAM COLORS
The elegant cream color range is relevant for both classical and modern interiors. And that the kitchen in cream tones looked really luxurious, Ruslan and Maria Green advise using interior materials with marble textures, as well as golden and ash-pink accents. Add an atmosphere of originality and cornices, moldings and mirror inserts, which you can decorate the ceiling. And to emphasize their relief will help different scenarios of local lighting – ceiling spots, chandeliers, hanging lamps and built-in LED lighting.

Modern kitchens with lots of glossy surfaces always look beautiful and festive. In addition, the gloss has a high reflectivity and therefore the premises, furnished with furniture with glossy facades, look more spacious.
White gloss, which fits well with the blue LED-backlight, is chosen by those who want to achieve a sense of lightness and purity. But black or red is a more extravagant option and will surely appeal to shocking people who dream of an extraordinary and expressive kitchen with stained-glass windows, brutal brickwork, details made of natural wood.
Light gray walls, doors and dining table of tinted glass, the designer lamp with crystal pendants, black and white posters – a modern kitchen with a high-tech design, as in the photo, will only benefit from the presence in the interior of natural wood. This can be a panel, a floor, furniture facades or the decoration of an accent wall in the dining area. The main thing is that the shade of the tree is warm, and the structure – expressive.
Walls of a shade of cappuccino and furniture with facades, decorated with a veneer of Zebrano wood, make up the perfect duo. But it can be even more impressive if you add a few bright accents of turquoise, amethyst, and amber to the interior of the modern kitchen. A win-win option is stained-glass inserts with a floral or geometric pattern in this range, a relief panel-partition, and bar stools.
Gray is considered one of the most difficult and intriguing, so the popularity of interiors in gray tones is understandable. The most popular is a multi-component monochrome version, where there is wood, marble, and metal. To support the concept of color, it is better to choose household appliances with matte steel front panels for this kitchen, which will fit organically into the design. And create a beneficial contrast will help the countertops of black marble.
ORGANIZATION OF SPACE AND ZONING IN A MODERN KITCHEN
To the kitchens today are very high demands in terms of ergonomics and functionality. And this, in turn, forces designers to look for new planning solutions that will maximize the potential of the premises and use every centimeter of available space. Sometimes for this, you have to demolish or build internal partitions, complicating the geometry of the room, and also to integrate additional furniture elements into the interior.
Open studio space gives a sense of spaciousness and in most cases, the owners of apartments and houses want to unite the kitchen with the living room. But in practical terms, the lack of a partition between these functional zones has certain drawbacks. Working on the project of a one-room apartment for a young man, Ruslan and Maria Green found the perfect compromise solution – they separated the kitchen from the living room with a transparent partition of tempered glass. It does not heavier space and is almost invisible in the interior, but at the same time, it perfectly copes with the role of the zoning element and the kitchen apron.
INCREASING THE WORKING AREA DUE TO THE ISLAND WITH A HOB
Increase the working surface in a small kitchen can be, complementing the interior with a functional island with built-in hob. And that it was not striking, designers recommend choosing a technique of the same color as the top of the island. As for the hood, then for such a layout suitable autonomous island model, which does not require connection to ventilation. The hood, which designers Ruslan and Maria Green chose for the kitchen in the photo, looks like an exclusive crystal lamp and has a built-in filter and backlight.
KITCHEN MODULE WITH APPLIANCES, BUILT INTO THE NICHE
The presence in the kitchen of the niche architects and designers consider a big plus since it can be equipped with a comfortable working surface. If the niche is in the entrance area, it is better to place a large module with a storage system or built-in appliances. But the hob has the sense to put on the next wall or to integrate into the bar.
ZONING KITCHEN-LIVING ROOM WITH A BAR COUNTER
The use of a linear bar counter for zoning kitchen-living room space is a popular planning solution that allows you to order the interior without any extra costs and add to its originality. And that the design is well “read” in the room, it must be a contrasting color, original shape and with additional decorative lighting.
ACTUAL FINISHING MATERIALS IN THE INTERIOR OF THE KITCHEN
Finishing materials play a leading role in the design of modern cuisine and often act not only as a background for furniture but also as a decoration. Therefore, the most demanded today is the finish with beautiful texture and original relief. The choice of materials largely depends on the style of the interior, but this does not mean that in the design of modern kitchen can not integrate traditional classic decoration and decoration.
