The design of the kitchen-studio should be as functional as possible, convenient to all residents. The choice of a suitable kitchen design depends on many factors: the size of the room (ceiling height, room shape, total area), the location of windows, doors, the personal desire of the owners. The successful design of the kitchen studio can be seen in the photo below.
Combining space in a small apartment allows you to create a beautiful and functional room where, besides cooking, you can relax and unwind
Today, kitchen studios are widespread due to the possibility of combining several rooms into one, while maintaining comfort. Open planning is designed by builders or is the result of apartment redevelopment. Studio layout visually makes a small kitchen a much larger studio, and the space is more functional. In this regard, more often studio version have small rooms (odnushki), private houses.
In a private house you can create the kitchen of your dreams.
The presence of a kitchen-studio in a small apartment is already a big plus for the owners, but it is worth mentioning the specific advantages of such a layout so that there is no doubt when creating the interior:
- Ability to organize space depending on the preferences of the host. At the same time in one room can fit kitchen, bedroom, working mini-office and living room, as demonstrated in the photo.
When arranging the desktop in the area of the windowsill, worry about the holes for better circulation of warm air
- The combination of kitchen and hallway. This option is suitable for most private homes, when at the entrance you immediately get to the kitchen. It is much more convenient, because in this case it will not be necessary to take a significant piece of space from the kitchen, but at the same time the hallway will remain large enough not to lose its functionality. It is much more convenient for large families and those who often receive guests. The photo shows that a spacious place will fit a wardrobe, a cabinet for storing outer clothing (shoes), a mirror, a suite with a kitchen table.
- Free design eliminates unnecessary walls, so the studio kitchen fits so harmoniously into a small apartment. One room is much easier to arrange in the same style than to try to choose several types of design so that each room remains individual.
Proper zoning of small premises helps to create a functional and comfortable accommodation.
It is necessary to note the negative aspects of placing a studio-type kitchen in a small apartment:
- Spreading the smell of cooked food. The problem is easily solved by the correct placement of a powerful hood. The most effective are hoods dome-shaped and built-in headsets (with a sliding filter). For a small kitchen-studio, the built-in hood will save space, and at the same time it will be invisible to incoming guests.
- Hit on the living room furniture studio pieces of fat, from cooking. Here you can be helped by harboring furniture with beautiful blankets. By the beautiful canvases you can pick up capes on the backs of chairs, armchairs. Such things are easily erased, replaced by new ones.
- Decorate the richest, refined interior of the guest room will not be able to kind of dirty dishes, left pots, pans on the stove. It is easy to eliminate this problem, it is enough to clean up the dishes in the cabinets, periodically wipe the surfaces of the headset, the floor, throw out the accumulated household garbage every day.
A powerful modern hood will not only become the first assistant in the fight against unpleasant odors, but also become a stylish addition to the interior.
The trends of modern design relieve the owners of the need to select all the working areas in one studio. Of primary importance is the allocation of the kitchen area and living room (hall), but at the discretion of the owners can be identified and other areas.
Tip! If you want to properly equip an existing studio in a small apartment, to recreate an elegant interior, the layout should be carefully considered.
Proper zoning will help put everything in its place
Under the kitchen-studio allocate the area, depending on the time spent on it. If you plan most of the time is in the hall, then the kitchen-studio is furnished with a small amount of necessary furniture. Using the same kitchen studio as a working space, reception of guests and, of course, for cooking, forces designers to leave more space on it.
Dedicated kitchen areas in the studio should create a holistic picture in which each element is in its place and simultaneously complement each other.
One area can organically accommodate several zones simultaneously.
The boundaries of the kitchen-studio emit partitions. Partitions made of drywall, foam blocks, glass are well suited. They will not take much space in a small room. Low partitions emphasize the distribution of functional areas. For a small kitchen-studio, as in the photo, it is better to use coupe partitions. They take up little space, while performing several functions at once: by closing the compartment doors, you isolate the premises, creating two separate rooms, in the open state you can place interesting panels on the partition on the invoice.
Partitions can be a stylish decoration of the kitchen-studio
Floors and ceilings
Floor and ceiling zoning is also acceptable. The photo shows that the use of different in texture and color of materials will separate the kitchen in the studio from the living room. You can also tile the kitchen floor and the living room with laminate or carpet.
This is how zoning can look like with the help of floor decoration of the living room and kitchen.
Note! The use of tiles in the kitchen is much more practical than laminated boards.
Another, however, original version is multi-level floors or ceilings. For example, having placed a kitchen set together with a working area on a small podium you will not lose in the square, but you will draw a clear border between the zones.
Multi-level ceilings with different materials look very impressive and do an excellent job with zoning area.
Installation of the bar counter
A bar counter with chairs is a common element of room separation. The presence of built-in cabinets will allow you to fold various dishes (pots, glasses, glasses, knives). The wide surface of the bar counter can be used as a worktop for cooking. Installing several hanging lampshades around the edges of the bar, as can be seen from the photo, will decorate the stand.
Bar counter can be combined with the island table
Placing furniture in the kitchen-studio
I equip a workplace of a kitchen with a standard set in the form of kitchen set, a table with chairs, a case, various household appliances. The choice of headset must be taken with great responsibility. Decide how the appliances and cabinets will be built in, whether the team will be or sliding furniture, what color palette will decorate the panels needed at the apartment design stage. Hiding behind the fronts of the headset most of the appliances (hood, dishwasher, refrigerator), you give the room a well-groomed, neat look. In a small kitchen-studio, you need to effectively use every meter. So the kitchen set is better to install in the entire height of the apartment.
Shelves under the tabletop will be the perfect solution for extra storage space.
Placed on the border of the kitchen and living room, a table with chairs will harmoniously combine two spaces that will help to free up additional space. Alteration of the sill to the surface required for storage of things or workplace will become an additional functional area.
Each area of the room must be properly illuminated. It is desirable to have for each a separate switch with adjustable.
For each zone of this kitchen-studio has its own lamp
A small kitchen studio located far from the windows must be well lit. Dark place complicates cooking, significantly reduces the area of the room. Suitable for small lamps, placed directly above the table, working surface.
Recessed lighting perfectly illuminates the work area and does not interfere with other occupants in the room
Some headsets, bar counters, compartment doors are equipped with spotlights, they allow you to avoid additional light sources. An elegant chandelier is more suitable for lighting the living room, as in the photo, emphasizing the general direction of style.

The selection of the color palette will be based on a general design concept. Noble, deep tones of warm pastel shades (white, gold, cream, milk or chocolate) will suit the classical style. Modern style will emphasize black, gray, purple, lemon, azure color. The presence of cool colors in the interior (blue, with its shades, gray, metallic, silver) will indicate the loft style.
Loft style can be identified by the gray shades of the walls, minimalist furniture and original lighting.
It is better to fill the room of the small size with the light tones giving volume. White color will easily add a little flat freshness. But it is not necessary to use a pure white color, light green, light pink, beige, milky, cream tones and other neutral shades will be a worthy alternative.
The kitchen is painted with more bright tones than the living room or bedroom. From the photo you can see that such staining visually divides the space into zones.
Juicy green color adds fresh notes and marks the kitchen area.
A small kitchen studio is better not to overload the presence of decorative elements. If there is a cabinet with closed shelves, then you can remove all the tools, cosmetic accessories, boxes, cords for charging phones, dishes that you use only on holidays. And on the open shelves, you can install wicker baskets, decoratively decorated caskets for everyday change or potted plants.
Open shelves with decor do not overload the interior of the studio kitchen
Small color decorative elements will decorate the kitchen interior in a studio apartment. Vases with flowers, photographs, books can be placed on the suspended corner shelves, if you have a small studio apartment, and you can see an example of such an arrangement in the photo.
Such a shelf does not take up much space, but is an excellent support for indoor flowers and various decorations.

If you bought an apartment with a kitchen-studio or decided to change the existing interior in favor of such a layout, you first need to choose a design. Of course, it directly depends on your assumptions, but there are styles that are more appropriate for such a room, or the design you choose has certain nuances in the design of the studio. A prerequisite for this will be a competent, harmonious combination of all the details of the interior. The combination of different designs in one room, especially a small one, is better to provide experienced specialists in their field.
Not losing relevance design. The interior of the kitchen-studio, as in the photo, can be described as discreet, at the same time lively, cozy. Furniture made of natural wood is used to decorate the room. She always looks noble, beautiful, sophisticated. The color scheme will be restrained. All these features of the classic style will create a very sophisticated interior.
Tip! Do not buy massive items for a small studio kitchen. Choose simple, comfortable furniture decorated with small carved elements.
This modern design will appeal to lovers of attics and well-ventilated areas. It is suitable for large, spacious kitchen studios, as in the photo. Finishing is performed in calm light colors, there are straight forms. Walls, floors, ceilings are decorated with the most simple materials - bricks, concrete, wood. The preference is given to practical furniture from plastic, glass, metal.
This style is distinguished by maximum convenience, functionality in everything: from large furniture to small accessories. Great for the design of a small studio kitchen. Traditional materials used in the interior - wood, stones, fabrics. Monochrome drawings and graffiti presented in the photo, decorate the walls.
The use of metal and glass objects distinguishes this style from others, making it relevant to the present time. The photo reflects how a modern kitchen studio can be decorated with metal decorative elements with chrome legs.
Design implies the minimum availability of objects (tables, chairs, sofas, shelves), accessories. The interior of the studio kitchen will be dominated by gray, sand, silver, black colors. Create a bright color accent capable of one element, for example, a vase, flowerpots, chandelier, floor lamp.
It should be noted that the design of the kitchen-studio should fully meet your requirements for functionality, but the aesthetic aspect is not the last. You should be comfortable working, spending your free time, relaxing, arranging gatherings with friends and relatives and cooking in the same room. The correct approach to the design of the kitchen-studio will help to create a harmonious atmosphere conducive to work and leisure.
