Monochrome interiors for a year do not go out of fashion - it's beautiful and original. Today we will talk about the black and white design of the kitchen: we will show examples with a photo, we will reveal some secrets and interesting ideas on design.
Black and white are strong and self-sufficient colors. One of them is the lightest of the color palette, the other is the darkest one. In order for this chess combination to play in the interior, one must understand the basic rules for combining such colors.
Here are some tips:
- In a small kitchen The dominant shade is better to make white - so the room will appear more visually.
- Ideal combination ratios: 2 to 1 or 3 to 1.
- You will need lots of lighting - otherwise the room will look dull and gloomy.
- Work on textures - their contrast will become a real highlight.
- Do not be afraid to add color accents. They enliven the atmosphere and emphasize the beauty of monochrome design.
- Equipment. Cooking panels and facades of ovens, as a rule, make black. You can use them as full-fledged elements of the color ensemble. This is especially true in a white and black small kitchen.
In words it seems complicated, but in the following photos you will see how these rules are embodied in the interior. Well, let's see how the kitchen looks, made in black and white in different styles.
There is an opinion that for the classics it is necessary to use exclusively light pastel scale. In general, more often than not it happens. But, believe me, monochrome coloring is also suitable.
For example. There is a corner kitchen with white facades and black worktops. It looks very advantageous, especially thanks to a well-chosen as a background wallpaper with a patterned print. Pay attention to the little things: a few black and gray tiles on the apron will be a beautiful accent.
Do not pursue complicated forms: everything should be simple, but elegant. We recommend to choose a set with a patina - it completely corresponds to the classical style.
If the main tone you plan to make black, then the interior will have to be thought through as carefully as possible. For example, for a kitchen in Khrushchev it is not the best idea - you need a spacious room. We recommend at least one surface to be completely white - in this case the ceiling.
An elegant addition will be the vintage elements of the decor: a chandelier imitating an ancient candlestick, golden vases that will play the role of bright strokes.
Important: Do not forget that there is key lighting. In addition to the main lamp, try installing the lighting over the work surface - this will ensure a comfortable cooking.
For modern classics, you can depart a little from the traditions. Probably, you will like the floor, laid out with a large tile in staggered order. Yes, in a small kitchen to realize such a concept is complicated - it will make the room visually less. But in the spacious - a successful and unofficial move.
In the Art Nouveau style
It is characterized by smooth lines and smooth textures - in the black and white world, modern looks superb. It is suitable for any premises - even for small ones. The main thing is to find the right furniture.
For example, for a kitchen of 12 sq.m. suitable straight headsets in these tones. We like this option - a minimum of details, but everything looks very exquisite. The beauty and perfection of the room will help add an unusual chandelier of complex shapes.
By the way: Sometimes objects become familiar to everyone. In this photo, their role is played by jars with loose products, which are usually taken to hide in lockers.
Experiment with bright accents - they can fine decorate a monochrome picture. A green ceramic apron and a thin green strip on a white floor will suit both small and large rooms.
Of course, you can choose the color at your discretion. But remember that there should not be more than two elements - otherwise you can not say that you made the kitchen in black and white.
Working with modern styles has one serious risk: it is easy to get carried away by materials whose texture is irrelevant in monochrome design - an abundance of metal, gilding, wallpaper with 3D print. Perhaps there is only one exception - a transparent impact-resistant glass. The shelves, the doors of the lockers ... They look beautiful and quite in the subject for the decoration of Art Nouveau.
If you want to place a dining area in the kitchen, it makes sense to highlight it in a different color. Refer to the classic combination of black and red-white. The monochrome design with bright chair-chairs looks fresh, but the purple textiles do not seem to be a foreign part of the interior.
Use a tree - it is always appropriate, even in black and white. However, here the main thing is not to overdo it. Embossed surfaces with a pronounced texture do not fit. After all, the tree should be a complement, not a foundation. Use it for countertops. In this frame a rich terracotta apron will play.
Glossy textures, metallic, bright shades are the main expectations from this style. And how will the black and white kitchen look like in high-tech style? Judging by the reviews - excellent! For him, after all, a monochrome design is characteristic.
Pay attention to this option: a matte white finish and a glossy black headset. Raisins add blue LED lighting - a welcome that has become more fashionable in recent years.
A huge role in such interiors play details: a patterned apron, an unusual chandelier or lamps, decor elements. Take the time and think over these little things: they create an atmosphere.
Here is another interesting solution - a kitchen-living room with red accents in black and white.
Pay attention to the successful move with the zoning - in the working area is predominantly black, and in the dining room - light. So the room looks more structured and organized, which helps to maintain order.
If you are not afraid of the high cost of sets on order, do it roughly in this spirit. Futuristic design of such furniture corresponds to the spirit of high-tech. And just looks great. However, lovers of the abundance of decor is better to look for another option - do not distract attention from the main element, it is good in itself.
If space allows the room, set the white kitchen island on the center of the kitchen with the lighting from the bottom. In tone, he will decorate the main working area with a stove and a sink on a black background.
But the built-in refrigerator and high cabinets make black. Glossy white floor decorate with a "chess" soft mat. Yes, finding the right furniture and accessories will require material and time costs - but the result is worth it.
For some reason, most people associate it with gray and red tones.
Meanwhile, a small black and white kitchen with a loft decoration looks perfect. Walls and aprons are recommended to be tiled with a brick - this corresponds to the traditional idea of this style. In addition, given the small size of the room, think about the small details that eventually form the interior.
For example, it is important to choose curtains so that they do not take up much space, but they are stylish and appropriate. We recommend to try Roman or vertical blinds - they are quite suitable for the concept.
Dilute the basic combination of black and white with gray elements. For example, as here - a black relief insert on the wall "under the stone" is favorably shaded by the glossy lockers of the headset.
For spacious rooms, buy corner kitchen - it is comfortable and practical, but in these colors looks great. Divide the colors - make a black bottom and white top or vice versa, as in the photo.
Pros for this design is much more than minuses - the room looks holistic, and a clear horizontal border balances the perception of disproportionate premises.
As a decor, use traditional for loft decorations - graffiti, posters, voluminous inscriptions. Do not neglect and bright accents - try, for example, buy a bright red refrigerator.
Small strokes of a different color are extremely successful. Try to combine the gray floor with black and white furniture with wooden shelves. This combination is a standard technique that softens the interior and makes it more refined.
In the style of minimalism
A rich black and white tone is ideal for a minimalist kitchen.
Attractively it looks like a white kitchen with a black countertop - it visually makes the room wider and longer. Dilute the mono-terrier will help the correct wallpaper - take light beige, slightly rough. The contrast of similar relief walls with even furniture looks impressive.
By the way, black and white need not be made uniform. Choose textured colors, especially for glossy facades. Furniture and appliances, as in this photo, are able to become a decoration of the room. In this case, no additional decor will be required.
For a studio apartment, it is better to buy a set and an identical bar counter. It will become an additional working surface and help separate the working area from the living room. Yes, and just beautiful.
Work with accents and decorative elements. An unusual woven chandelier in the form of a hemisphere above the dining table is what you need. If you do not have enough bright colors, it is not forbidden to add a couple of smears - for example, a few red vases or stands for kitchen utensils.
In the style of art deco
First of all, attention should be paid to the details: everything should be as exquisite as possible. Avoid harsh lines and complex styles: elegant furniture with rounded corners is what you need.
It is important to understand which wallpaper to choose and whether or not to do it. We answer - if you find stylish black with a pattern, then definitely yes! Try to pick up to them an unusual modern technique - look how it looks like a non-standard form of hood is winning against such a background.
If the kitchen is combined with the dining room, work not only with the main surfaces, but also with the decor. It is very important to create a solemn and at the same time cozy atmosphere. There is also a downside to the medal - it's worth overdoing it with details, as the interior will be irretrievably spoiled. Therefore, we recommend that you consult with the designers.
To decorate one of the walls, use a mirror decorated insert. This is especially good for small kitchens - they will visually become much larger. But remember, that behind a mirror it is necessary carefully to look after, so it is not necessary to place it above a working surface.
For a small kitchen, the simplest simple invoices are preferred. To match the art deco tradition, give preference to smooth, slightly rounded lines. Do not get involved in complex forms - in a tiny room this is unacceptable.
And do not forget to put 1-2 flowers for decoration - then they will be more appropriate than ever.
Unusually it looks like an interior kitchen, combined with a dining room. Here art deco nicely intertwines with the loft. Think which tulle is best for curtains. Carefully draw a sketch of the location of PVC film on the ceiling and, especially, on the walls.
Select all the decorative elements. Very original textile woven patterns on the wall from the stretcher canvas - they are extremely rarely used. Elegance of the dining area will emphasize the apron "under the brick" and the most simple set of working. Lighting use a combined - spot lights with a bulb "bulb".
For him, use light, airy colors and mostly natural materials. And if everything is clear with the white, then it is unclear what the black is about.
Yes, the latter should indeed be less in proportion. For example, a black granite countertop or its imitation on a white wooden headset. Try to choose smooth, natural textures. Do not need experiments - even in this design the kitchen will look elegant.
Add accents with the help of decor: here it is a dark rug with bright stripes.
The corner black-and-white kitchen will look good if you dilute the monointer terrier with wooden aprons from the laminate a bit. Yes, it's a little out of our color range. But, as already mentioned above, 1-2 bright elements are entirely permissible.
For the kitchen, combined with the living room, Scandinavian style is also suitable. In many respects due to its simplicity - the kitchen space will not distract attention from the recreation area. Try to somehow supplement the clarity of the furniture lines - the original chandelier and the backlight under the lockers of the headset. So the impression will be more harmonious.
Work with invoices: matte white facades and the same apron for brick, glossy black table top and household appliances. Here, black appears rather as a complement, which emphasizes the snow-whiteness of other elements.
Let's sum up. Black and white kitchens look great if you manage to take into account all the details and carefully think over the interior. Most likely, repair will cost you a considerable amount - the simpler everything looks, the more carefully you need to select materials. However, if you are not scared, the result will exceed expectations - a combination of black and white will be spectacular and beautiful in almost any style.
