This is reflected in every detail: the selection of the texture of wallpaper, furniture, design of the ceiling and floor. The design of the room in the style of a classic involves the use of expensive finishing materials and accessories. In case of financial difficulties, you can choose imitations, but they must be of high quality.
Today, the design of the kitchen-living room in the style of classicism or neoclassicism is not only the lot of aristocratic families and the cream of society, but also thosewho does not like to experiment with color or modern finishing materials in the design of the room, being a conservative. The classic style is always relevant, and the desire to design a home according to its canons is inherent in many people.
There are a certain number of rules that must be followed when designing a room in a classic style:
- plenty of free space and daylight;
- simple geometric shapes;

Failure to comply with the above criteria may result in the absence of the desired result. For the classics are also characterized by a variety of decorative patterns. Zoned combined kitchen-living room, you can use color accents, due to lighting or functional and decorative accessories. In order to combine both rooms, it is enough to add an echoing pattern in the design of the walls in the kitchen and living room. For example, the texture of a wall covering in a hall may overlap with the wooden patterns on the kitchen set.
To the kitchen-living room In the classic design it turned out exactly as it was intended by you, you need:
- have a design project, thought out to the smallest detail;
- use expensive and high-quality materials in decoration;
- choose the right accessories.
Classically decorated rooms are characterized by lightness and fullness of light. To achieve this, experts recommend choosing light colors. But you should not give preference to the white shade, as this color can make the room look like a hospital ward. White can be diluted with a beige tone, olive, cognac or a shade "under the champagne".
If you really want to buy a white suite in the kitchen and a snow-white dining table in the living room, then for the background you should choose a delicate green color that will give the room depth. More suitable background colors for the classic style: cream, sky blue, soft pink, pearl (but not gray).
For wall decoration, it is better to choose plaster, wallpaper, stylized as plaster, or with a noble pattern: it can be a strip, a floral or openwork ornament. The pattern in the kitchen and in the living room may be the same, and the color scheme may differ by several tones. In the working area, the wallpaper can also be monophonic, and in the living room - with a pattern.The main thing is that the wall coverings look elegant and not overload the overall atmosphere of the room.
The apron in the kitchen should be made in the general color of the decision. As for the flooring, instead of the classic classic flooring experts suggest using natural stone or its imitation. A floor from marble in combination with the plastered walls and a light color decision will look very effectively. The ceiling is better to plaster. Stretch ceilings that are in incredible demand will be inappropriate in classic style. To give the ceiling covering the features of luxury, you can use stucco or frieze in its design.
Spacious room will require more careful design. In the design of such premises, you can install antique columns, fireplaces, arches, and arrange the floor with a parquet board or a laminate stylized as it. Furniture can be made from a solid array, or from this material you can choose only the facades of the cabinets, and the internal filling (shelves, partitions) - from more cost-effective materials.
In the arrangement of furniture, the main thing is to preserve structural symmetry and general harmony in the room.The central element in the composition is necessarily necessary, from which the further arrangement of all the objects will be determined already. In the combined kitchen-living room - this is the stove.
To provide the kitchen-living room with good lighting, it is necessary that the light comes from several sources. The first is the large windows, the second is the illumination of the working area, built into the kitchen hinged cupboard or in the hood. Such zonal illumination is good because, performing its function, they do not attract much attention. The light center of the room should be a chandelier placed strictly in the middle of the room, or two chandeliers installed at the same distance from the center from different sides. A good option would be carob chandeliers, as they have several light bulbs installed at once.
As an additional light source for the kitchen-living room, sconces, table lamps or floor lighting devices are well suited. It is better if all these devices will be in the same style. Lamps should illuminate the room well, but not focus attention on themselves.
Additional architectural elements
Columns are often used in the combined kitchen-living room to separate the work area from the seating area.
Columns are used in different types:
- the Doric column is not equipped with an independent base, and its top has a minimum of decor;
- The Ionic column is an independent architectural element, and two spiral-shaped elements adorn the capitals;
- Corinthian column is similar to the previous version, but it is richly decorated with plant motifs in the form of fern leaves and grapes.

Another architectural component of the classical style is the portal. It will be appropriate in the arrangement of the fireplace, space for TV, working area in the kitchen, the border between the kitchen and living room. But it must be borne in mind that such a decorative detail will require a lot of free space, so you need to equip it in spacious rooms.If you add columns to the portal, the room will look more solemn.
Curtains in the combined kitchen-living room should be made of thick fabric, combined in tone with the furnishings of the room. Portieres can be decorated with bows or tassels. You can choose curtains of lighter fabric. But they must be light shades (white, cream) and long (to the floor). Eaves can be chosen metal with effect of aged and original tips or carved wooden.
You can decorate the kitchen-living room with vases of flowers or bright fruit.

The walls of the kitchen-living room can be decorated with classic paintings, portraits, landscapes or still lifes.
Classic style can be combined with other styles. This can manifest itself in a color mix, interspersed with individual details of a foreign style.A classically decorated room can be luxurious, but it should not be shown for show. Elegance and sophistication - these are the priorities in the design of a classic combined kitchen-living room. An integral attribute of style are carved details. It can be bronze, gilding, stucco or imitation close to natural materials.
You can not use in the decoration of bright colors, too sharp geometric solutions and extravagant paintings. Black color may be present in the room, but very limited: in the decoration of the kitchen apron, floor or appearance of kitchen appliances. But in the pursuit of a beautiful interior, it is important not to overdo it with the details. For this you need to consult with experts.
Table for the kitchen-living room is better to choose a round or oval. The use of square or rectangular furniture is not prohibited, but it will look very rough in an elegant and noble interior. If the edges of the table are not sharp, but rounded, with a successful design decision such furniture can be installed in the classically decorated kitchen-living room.Other items in the dining area should also have soft lines: the chairs have rounded backs and curved legs, and there are rounded moldings on the facades of cabinets.
Beautiful covers will look decorative covers, echoing the pattern and shade with other textile elements of the room. Covers can be sewn of their velvet material, organic cotton or silk.
The dining area is better to allocate using a podium or a complex ceiling structure. These decorative superstructures may overlap with the shape of the table.
