Kitchen Design for 2021
Today, after the kitchen has become a place that occupies an important place in the house, and we are getting rid of its walls to make it open to the rest of the house to connect it with other spaces, the most important of which is the living room and the dining table.
The interest in it has become more than before, and it has developed shapes in the designs and materials used to fit with the open space.
We will now discuss the most important of these designs.
• And as we said, the kitchens have become a trend for some time to be open to the living room in order to enhance communication between family members together, where the mother can monitor the children while cooking.
This type of design drives us to innovate in the kitchen.
We find that we have integrated appliances such as the oven and the refrigerator sometimes inside the kitchen cupboard to save space.
We also put an island in the middle of the kitchen that includes the wash basin to be in front of the dining area.
We put the stove inside the kitchen cupboard and insert it with the hood above it or on the island.
And in design:
•Kitchen Landscape Design
Explains that we combine the open kitchen with the living room.
We put the wash basin on the island on one end of it, and we provide the rest of the island for sitting.
The movement triangle must be taken into account during design.
And in design:
Kitchen facade design
We see that we have combined appliances, whether refrigerator, oven, microwave, and stove hood, with the kitchen cupboard.
• The kitchen cupboard above the appliances, we made it a hinged leaf to the top (flip) for storage.
This design helps to reduce space and utilize every part of the kitchen.
In the two examples, we see the integration of appliances into the kitchen cupboard and how the kitchen cupboard is distributed around it.
An open part in the kitchen cupboard can be made in the middle, as in the first example.
Or make it completely closed, like the second example.
Putting an island in the kitchen, either with an appliance or an empty one to work on or eat.
The use of metal in the kitchen:
Metal is incorporated into the kitchen, besides its use in handles and lamps, it has also become used in metal finishes for furniture elements.
•Metal: It is used in handles and hardware.
It appears in the water faucet and appliances, and the shape of the kitchen cupboard takes the shiny metallic shape.
The metal is also placed under the kitchen cupboard to protect it.
Matte kitchen finishes
Although it shows the shape of the glossy finishes that resemble metal, which gives an aesthetic shape to the kitchen. • Matte finishes are more practical as they are not affected by fingerprints and stains like glossy surfaces.
•Finishes: The use of matte materials for surfaces of any color, which gives a more luxurious and balanced look and does not get dirty quickly.
Abandon the handles in the design of the kitchen
There is a trend now that it appears to abandon the handles and make the kitchen cupboard open either by pressing or by making small holes that enable us to open it.
•knobs: It is hidden in the kitchens by making small holes or cutting part of the end of the drawers or the door to open from it.
It can be made magnetic so that we open and close it magnetically by applying pressure.
•Knobs in the previous design: We notice that in the right part, the handles have been cut out of the drawers and integrated with them so that we can use them to open.
• In the left part, it was made magnetic by applying pressure, so as not to show large spaces between the leaf units as in the right part.
The kitchen island is so important that we can sit on it for a quick meal.
We use it to sit and share the housewife while cooking.
Provides more space for preparation.
It can be used and put in one of the kitchen appliances, whether the stove or the sink.
This part can be used as storage to place some tools.
The island in previous designs:
It can be without equipment like a table like the first picture.
Its width can be increased to include the wash basin and used for storing tools, such as the second picture.
It can be designed from marble as it gives an aesthetic shape as in the third picture.
Upper cabinets in the kitchen
It is preferable to make the upper part of the kitchen cupboard cabinets, not shelves, so as not to collect dust and contaminate it.
• In the event that we want to show the kitchen utensils, we can instead of shelves put glass behind the cupboards, which is a trend that is expected to rise again this year.
•upper lockers: If we want to make the tools visible without placing shelves, we can put the glass in the places where we want to show the pots, and the other part we make it closed as in the pictures in front of us.
Storage places in the kitchen
Storage has become important to the kitchen and the design is based largely on it.
We have become allocating places to store some of the frequently used tools such as cutting tools and others inside the kitchen cupboard.
There is also a tendency to put some appliances inside the cupboards so that the kitchen cupboard is level and organized, but divided from the inside.
It also makes us take advantage of the places in the small kitchen cupboard that we don’t know what to do with.
•places to store: We see in the first picture that he put the device inside the kitchen cupboard, as we put the hanging tools as part of the kitchen cupboard in the picture below.
In the second picture, he took advantage of the small part by making it a trolley containing cans designated for placing spices.
The third picture made the kitchen cupboard longitudinal and level on the outside, but divided into shelves and drawers from the inside.
latest Kitchen colors 2021
The trending colors for this year, according to a few manufacturers:
(Grey blue green – beige and greige – yellowish green – blue gray – deep bronze – coffee color).
First – the colors of gray green blue
The gradation of this color is used and gives a calm and comfortable look to the kitchen cupboard.
Second – the colors of beige and greige
Beige colors have always been one of the colors used in the kitchen and continue to be used in different degrees.
Yellowish green colours:
The colors of yellowish green appear strongly for this year and make you feel connected to nature. As we said, one of the trends in interior design for this year is the trend of nature.
Blue gray colors
And as we also said in the latest color trends for 2021, this color group is considered one of the prominent colors for this year in interior design.
Deep Bronze Colors
It is considered an alternative to the black color that comes out of the colors for this year, and in the event that it is not preferred by the housewife, as it is considered a slightly dark black color, this color can be used instead.
It is the use of wood in its natural colors to make us more connected to nature, but if it is used, it must be ensured that it is isolated so as not to be damaged by the kitchen atmosphere.
Use these colors:
These colors are used for kitchen cupboards.
But if we want the kitchen cupboard to be in neutral colors such as white and others, then we can add these colors in other elements such as the kitchen island, chairs in the kitchen or electrical appliances.
•Colors : Either we make the kitchen a neutral color such as white and the island is colored.
Or we make the kitchen cupboard colorful and the rest of the kitchen neutral.
Combining two colors in the kitchen cupboard
One of the trends that has emerged is the use of two colors in the kitchen cupboard or a type of finishing material in one kitchen by making the lower kitchen cupboard one color and the upper one color.
It is preferable to make the lighter color on top and the darkest color on the bottom.
In the previous example, We used coffee-colored wood in the lower part of the cupboard and chose a solid beige color for the upper part.
In the previous example, We used a dark bronze color for the lower part and a blue-gray color for the upper part.
And with this, we have discussed the latest kitchen designs for 2021, and in the upcoming articles we will talk about the latest developments in interior design for the rest of the spaces in the house to learn about the latest trends and development in designs and be familiar with sufficient information..
