Kitchen - this is the place where we spend almost the most of our home time… Therefore, original ideas for the kitchen now occupy more and more space in the thoughts and desires of our customers. For example, the design of the kitchen in 2020 we have ordered about ten times) however, after repairs in the kitchen, the client turns to us for the design of the entire apartment, and from this starts a full-fledged interior design.
The basis of any kitchen design there is ergonomics and functionality. The designer takes into account these indicators and relies on them when designing a kitchen. Therefore, it is important to organize it correctly and comfortably before the repair. In the second stage, we have the room itself - whether it is an open space, a niche kitchen or a separate kitchen. There are also options for kitchens-loggias, kitchens with access to the balcony, be sure to pay attention to kitchen design with window - if there is a beautiful landscape, turn the kitchen so that the eye of the person who is in the kitchen, as much as possible enjoyed and rested, looking at the world through the window. We consider all these kitchen ideas with the customer and choose the most optimal one.
The last stage to be determined before the repair is the style that the customer likes. To determine the style in which we will design, we conduct surveys and work with analogues. During the survey, we collect information from the Client regarding his wishes for the design of the kitchen - color preferences, decor options, design and style of furniture and even the design of the ceiling. Maybe he wants to see a specific style of kitchen, or to reflect the special events of family life, to place there special interior items and so on.
Working with analogues involves careful selection and analysis of existing facilities - ours and abroad - in order to better feel the wishes and moods of the customer. As a result, we select such kitchen renovation options that we will be able to choose from among all our options - namely, a combination of space, room functionality, kitchen zoning and ergonomics.

Middle-aged people who have collections of household items, or certain products, drinks and want to place them for inspection, who like unusual dishes - for example, cooked in the oven - order this kitchen design. Appliances and other filling of the kitchen are selected individually, sometimes made to the customer (different types of decors, brick stove, etc.).
Most often in the design becomes the main kitchen renovation in the apartment. Unlike individual houses, we are dealing with already built housing, so it is important to take into account all existing communications and appliances. Often illiterate location of the boiler and meter, as often happens with us, can dramatically spoil the look of the kitchen. It is important to decorate them correctly, according to current regulations. The design of the ceiling in the kitchen also plays an important role, as it is often necessary to "mask" the shortcomings of planning and the shortcomings of the builder.

With the help of colors, textures and textures you will achieve a decent result and then the kitchen will definitely be the cause of your pride. Our designer will help you successfully beat it all and use every inch of space.

Sometimes there is also a green color of the walls in the kitchen, which, according to research, suppresses the appetite and makes the atmosphere more depressed, not so pleasant, which does not allow you to relax and start communicating.
White kitchen - it is always a feeling of sophistication, purity and lightness. This kitchen goes well with wood (country house, Scandinavian style, loft), with gold (classic style, modern classics) and with other colors and textures (minimalism).
Using glossy surfaces, you can achieve the effect of a bright room, because white has the highest light reflectance. Therefore, such a kitchen is relevant primarily for small rooms or those where sunlight does not get enough.

The combination of black and white is displayed in the most interesting options. These can be different cabinet configurations (black at the bottom, white at the top), a combination of different textured solutions (if the more textured and embossed surface is black - your kitchen will look much more expensive), or completely white kitchen, but black will accentuate certain details. : lines, plumbing, lighting, flooring or in the design of the work area. In the latter case, black will give your design more depth, clarity, graphicity. One conclusion can be made - the design of a black and white kitchen - for bold people with refined taste.
And if not black? - you will say, - we want something more neutral, but to be just as refined.
Then definitely gray! It fits perfectly into the classic style, no matter what shade of gray - light or closer to graphite, in combination with white it will be fantastic.
And if you are a fan of minimalism, but the monochrome design is too boring for you, then with the help of gray you can add interest to the white kitchen. Today, the world of design offers many interesting solutions, and everyone individually chooses what they like, from decorating the apron with gray tiles, using a very popular terrazzo and ending with a minimalist, but so expressive microcement.
The choice is yours!

Of course, you need to be prudent in the selection of materials, as depending on the texture of the facades and their nature of origin will depend on the difficulty of the cleaning process.
If the kitchen is completely black, but you want more lightness and elegance, you can decorate the facades of the upper cabinets with glass inserts. And then the top of the kitchen will be much easier to perceive.
But do not forget that the kitchen should be a lot of light and if yours is completely black in design, then it needs to be designed a little more in advance.
