The kitchen is a space that is used by all family members for their daily needs such as cooking, eating, socializing or resting. Because of these differences, kitchen lighting is an important factor in any kitchen, and should therefore be divided into three main zones to meet all the parameters: efficiency, comfort and atmosphere.
First zone: working lighting
All the places where we prepare food, cook and clean should be well and directly lighted. The recommendation is to install lights under kitchen cabinets in order to have better lighting on the worktops and sink. Type of lighting: energy saving lights or even better LED tubes (instead of old fluorescent).

Second zone: general lighting
Although we term the main, does not have to be. It is the lighting that serves to illuminate the entire kitchen, but it is often not enough when doing something, therefore we use and additional, the working lights. General lighting is often used to illuminate the dining table, if the same is located in the kitchen. Type of lighting: chandeliers or hanging suspension lights with energy-saving lamps or ceiling lights.

Third zone: decorative lighting
Although there is no crucial importance in the preparation of food and even in consumption the same, decorative lighting has its function especially in those areas where the kitchen connected with dining room and living room. Type of lighting: LED strips or ceiling mounting lamp with smaller power.

In this article will focus on the color green in the kitchen design, for another temptation in the kitchen, giving positive emotions and calming hot passions and emotions. Since ancient times, and today, green color is seen as a symbol of life, naturalness and harmony. Lightweight and unobtrusive, it surrounds us with peace and comfort, bringing a sense of freshness and security.
Green color in the interior of the kitchen is one of the best options for creating an atmosphere to relax after a hard day or to “recharge your batteries” and to create positive emotions. If you decide to bring into the interior of the kitchen green shades you should not immediately run to the nearest store and to pick from the shelves everything that is green: bowls, vases, curtains and anything else you can think of! Because in the construction of a “green line” in the interior of the kitchen you must approach carefully and gently. In this way your kitchen will not look like messy room. To avoid this picture, you should keep in mind that green is an appropriate solution for walls or kitchen equipment color, but not both!
Green accents suit the kitchens in almost all other colors. Green successfully combines with black, white, pastel tones, with warm yellow or orange, and even with blue and royal purple. But above all, it is particularly important the colors to be well dosed.
In our gallery you can see a small part of the endless possibilities for the application of this color in the decoration or the basic concept for kitchens. I would not be surprised if any of this ideas make you a fan of the cause “to get Green in kitchen design!”

The colors of the modern kitchen
The colors of the modern kitchen for 2014 are consistent with the overall trends in color for home decor. Most modern for the season is the kitchen in white. Monochrome combination of black and white also has legions of fans, but it is strongly rivaled from the kitchen in deep red or eggplant purple. Kitchen in neutral colors is also trendy design.

The design, organization and decor of the modern kitchen are united in a common goal – to gather the whole family together. So lately most common is the option of a large and spacious kitchen, of which in the center is a kitchen island around which are arranged chairs type “Stork”.

Another common idea for the modern kitchen is the idea for gateway (or arch) in the living room or dining room. On the one hand, the lack of a wall or door between the rooms gives an impression of wider space, but on the other – it requires same decor in both rooms.

Element of the modern kitchen is also open shelves, on which are arranged workshops. This trend is not very practical from a household perspective as cups and plates easily catch dust if are not used and washed daily. Therefore, designers have found another solution – kitchen with L – shaped under panels on which has functional compartments for everything you need.
