Natural materials in a complex with home-made decor are indispensable attributes of almost every colorful interior style. They create a unique atmosphere of comfort, coziness and home heat.
If you are interested in cuisine in the Moroccan style, the above photos will certainly prompt interesting ideas.
Moroccan style, as was already noted by many, advantageously combines elements of Mediterranean and African styles.
It assumes unusual color combinations, national ornaments, an abundance of decorative items made by own hands.
It is these nuances that must be taken into account by those who decide to recreate something similar in their own kitchen.
Let's take a closer look at specific features.
Materials and colors
The first thing you should pay attention to is the materials. Give preference to natural wood, clay, stone and metal.
The color solution is realized in green, blue, terracotta, burgundy, yellow, red, white, beige, coral and even black color.
Tone can echo each other, complementing each other, creating a holistic exclusive curtain.
When finishing the ceiling, you can stop on a budget option, plastering or painting it in tone with the walls.
Painting, gypsum patterns, wooden elements will look very colorful, but will require impressive material costs.
Tadelakt and Zelije
Now we are talking about purely Moroccan finishing techniques, which are used in the design of walls, floor, apron, both in the kitchen and in other rooms.
Tadelact is a glossy mineral plaster, endowed with decent water-repellent properties and the ability to remarkably retain heat. Smooth surface gives aesthetics and decorativeness.
Get the ideal surface is possible by prolonged grinding and subsequent mashing with a special soap based on olive oil and wax. This is a fairly long process, requiring special skills and special materials.
Therefore, for finishing the walls it is better to use more familiar materials for us. Suitable even wallpaper, but with the right figure. Perfectly fit point ornament, six-pointed stars, arabesques.
Zelije - a small Moroccan ceramic tile, hand painted. Use it to finish the working apron. Choose for yourself a bright version with a traditional oriental pattern.
The best solution for flooring will be tiles with original national ornaments. Also, the cuisine in the Moroccan style, as seen in the photo, looks good with wooden parquet, linoleum, laminate, imitation of natural stone.
Furniture and lighting
Choose wooden furniture with smooth, curved lines, carved doors, lancet patterns. Rich in Moroccan standards, it will look inlaid with a mosaic or mother of pearl.
Mixers of bronze or silver color will be perfectly combined with an apron of ceramic tiles, perfectly fitting into the given interior style.
As lighting fixtures, you can safely use forged products of original shapes and sizes. Color solution - black, bronze, silver.
Crockery and decor
Naturally, we would recommend you to find original Moroccan dishes, but, believe me, it will not be easy. You can find it either in specialized stores selling various African decor items or on the Internet.
These dishes can be plain or with ornament. Much depends on what will be the destination for the dishes and dishes you have chosen.
The walls can be decorated with large chased plates, as needed, using them as trays.
If you talk about plates from which you and your family will eat, then do not be afraid of the fact that they will be different from you. This is absolutely normal and, one might even say, authentic.
Moroccan cups for tea drinking deserve special attention. They are made of glass and very beautifully painted. Here, take a look.
Decor in the Moroccan style performs both a unitary and aesthetic function, so do not hide dishes, but put it on public display.
The last thing worth paying attention to is textile: oriental carpet, tablecloths on the table, translucent curtains and bright pads. The style can be emphasized with the help of fabric blinds with oriental patterns.
As a result of such transformations, you will get a warm, cozy and bright kitchen, because there are so many things in it that have been made with your own hands.
