A big living room that incorporates both the kitchen and dining zones is much more comfortable than separate but much smaller rooms. That is why when working on this project, interior designers Ruslan and Maria Green , decided to create an open concept kitchen along with a room for entertaining friends and family.
Modern ideas of a kitchen-living room interior zoning
The idea was to combine the kitchen with the living room and re-plan the apartment. Because of this, Maria and Ruslan were able to create a single more spacious room with segregated but interconnected areas. Our kitchen-living room design includes two separate areas:
- Living room.
The dining room is a separator of these two areas.
Kitchen-living room interior design
The whole interior design design is centered around beige shades with chocolate framing and turquoise accents. There are strict classical furniture lines and polished stone and it is all supplemented by minor baroque elements, such as:
- opulent carvings and molding elements;
- gold-plated furniture and decor;
- lacey floral designs;
- diffused light;
- contrast and saturation of colors.
Maria and Ruslan found a beneficial solution for the kitchen area: compact multipurpose furniture on the perimeter with an island. The island has a comfortable two-tier structure and can be used as a food preparation table as well as a bar. It will be a piece of cake for you to drink a cup of coffee or catch up with friends without having to go trek through a dining room.
The designers also considered the need for high-quality lighting of each kitchen area in this design project. Therefore, they put a chandelier above the bar and installed the ceiling lights for the rest of the kitchen furniture.
The living room area contains:
- a sofa;
- a carved wooden table with a glass top;
- cabinets, tables and a TV.
Both a mirror and a marble fireplace complement the living room as well as a chandelier, identical to the lighting scheme in the kitchen area. The kitchen and the living room are also decorated with beige drapes that cover windows and walls.
Unlike the previous area, the dining roomis characterized by rich turquoise accents. They predominate in the draperies and the decor of chairs around the classical wooden table. In addition, the dining area stands out from the rest of the space with a Baroque chandelier that has a completely different design from the living room and kitchen. Because of its uniqueness, this area is such a fantastic buffer between the opposite ends of the room and the dining room is a quiet, cozy, and relaxing place in Maria and Ruslan’s house design.
