Professional designers offer three techniques for creating blue interiors.
Furniture saturated color, other surfaces of neutral, calm tone. If the furniture is performed in a blue style, then the handles on the doors can be metal and wooden. With metal well combined surfaces of plastic and glass. As an outdoor coating, a tile made under granite, or a gray laminate. As for the space between the working surfaces (countertops) and suspended cabinets, it can be separated by the following options:
- Simple monochrome tile of white, turquoise, green colors with blue tump;
- Wall panels with photo printing (skinali);
- metal finish;
- Imitation of brick or granite masonry.
Wallpaper, wall panels, plaster, as well as the ceiling will harmoniously look in the shade “Milk”, “Cappuccino”. Wallpaper can be with a brick or masonry imitation.
Furniture of light color on the background of blue apron. At the same time, the apron is made of tiles, mosaic cloth, glass wall panels with photo printing. Ceiling and walls should be white. Accessories and accessories are preferred bright blue shades to create an accent. For the floor it is worth picking a porcelain stoneware, wood, parquet “Christmas tree”. This option is perfect for small or elongated kitchens. Such a bright blue element will distract all attention.
The cold range is perfectly diluted with “spots” of orange, green and yellow colors. It can be dishes, textiles or live flowers. If the surfaces of the cabinets are glossy, white or silver, then the design will get closer to High-flow, modern and technologically. Wooden elements will make the room more cozy.
Combined furniture – blue with different color. If the companion is light paints, then the ceiling and walls can be chosen by the main. Gold plated, bronze, brass and copper elements in the design of cold blue kitchens make the interior warmer. Of these materials are made of furniture handles, legs, candle holders, tap mixers, core, curtain holders, various decorative elements. You can place dishes or various things made of these metals.
The level of illumination has a special value in this case. Over working surfaces set point backlight. For kitchens in the apartment of a small square, ordinary chandeliers will fit. Strict blinds look too cumbersome. It is better to replace their curtains with soft folds. You can use prints depending on the selected style.
For small kitchens, it is enough to place a chandelier with several light bulbs. But for large areas it is better to use several light sources. These may be lamps located in different places, for example, above the working area and over the dining table. Perhaps post a few lamps on the ceiling as an alternative to chandeliers. If the work area is large, you can place the LED backlight or point lamps. If the work area does not overlap with cabinets, then placing the lamp on the ceiling.
Important! Since the blue color is often cold, it can be smoothed using the lamps of warm light, especially indoors with dark shades. If the kitchen itself is light, then you can accommodate any.
The kitchen set of cold dark blue is diluted with light shades in the decoration and silver facades of household appliances. And so that the interior does not look cold, bright stains of yellow and green are added in the form of textiles and dishes. Warm interior also gives a dining wooden table.
Or reverse version. The kitchen headset is light, but in the finishing of the room the blue colors predominate. At the same time, the interior is also diluted with wooden elements, as well as yellow and green dishes.
The combination of dark blue and black can add gloomy kitchen. Due to the abundance of glossy surfaces and good lighting kitchen, on the contrary, it looks festive. At the same time, the narrowing of space due to the dark color is perfectly compensated by reflective surfaces.
For small kitchens, it is very important to visually increase the space. On this example, this was achieved by glossy surfaces of facades, light floors and ceiling.
Excellent combination of blue with yellow. In this case, the whole interior becomes bright and warm. The main thing is that both brightness both color corresponded to each other.
Making the kitchen in blue color, it is important to think about the design, considering the area of the room. What is better to choose – blue headset or finish.
