The current current trends in the field of design are simply ruthless to all pieces of outdated furniture. In particular, this applies to many cabinet models, which really no longer have a place in a modern interior. After all, minimalism and ergonomics have long been in vogue and have become firmly established. In order for you and your loved ones to feel as comfortable as possible in the apartment and not blush in front of guests because of outdated design elements, focus on modern trends and trends, saying goodbye to unnecessary pieces of furniture. Photo printing on the facade, insanely bright colors, cheap materials should be placed on the list for removal.
Wardrobes of variegated shades
Overly bright cabinet facades in a modern interior look not only inappropriate, but also vulgar. They are not even suitable for themed nurseries, since variegated shades overload the space, especially if there is a shortage of square meters in the room.
IMPORTANT. Vivid colors are very difficult to combine with other shades to create a harmonious design sound.
Even serial mixing styles (such as kitsch or eclecticism) perceive variegated cabinets very difficult and it is recommended to bring them there in dosage. But in the currently most popular design solutions (modern classics and Scandinavia), there is no place at all for excessive saturation with color.
Replacements: deep hues and rich colors
If you still want bright accents in the interior, stop your choice not on flashy colors, but on deeper, calm and saturated colors. For example, replacing fiery scarlet with muted burgundy will completely change the perception of the cabinet.
REFERENCE. Create coziness in space with complex colors, together they will look harmonious, but they will not get out of the general composition, emphasizing the entire interior palette.
Immediately remove cabinets from the living area that have vinyl decals, the brightest prints and the same painting. Such attempts to ennoble the space will not only not create coziness, but will also “fall out” of the overall picture due to their redundancy. They will not add mood either, but they will redo any interior, removing all exclusivity to the basic standard.
ATTENTION. Such an absurd decor does not carry any semantic load and is not a design idea, but only speaks of the lack of taste of its owners.
What to replace: concise models
Wardrobes of laconic models will look more profitable in any interior. The lack of all kinds of decor on a piece of furniture will only improve the situation. And this is true not only for adult interiors, but also for children’s interiors, since such a wardrobe will sound equally well in the room of a small child and in the room where a teenager lives.
IMPORTANT. The laconic model fits better into any setting and can be easily combined with other pieces of furniture.
If you still want to see additional decorativeness in the room, then add it with the help of various accessories. Table decorations or paintings will do an excellent job with this role.
Outdated coupe design
Also, the outdated and unfashionable forms of wardrobes include compartments with facades created under a tree, placed separately in the room. Usually they are not comfortable, because they are not equipped with harmonious guide lines. This type of furniture not only does not optimize the interior, but also complicates it.
What to replace: modern models
If you have a desire to place a wardrobe in an apartment, then pay attention to the models that go to the ceiling and are equipped with inconspicuous guides, as well as laconic facades. It is permissible to mount mirror surfaces in them, but without additional decor. Stand-alone wardrobes are best chosen with hinged doors.
REFERENCE. Don’t forget to focus on design versatility that will suit any interior.
This type of wardrobe is currently considered not only an unfashionable piece of furniture, but also a real anti-trend of modern interiors. Complex milling, gilded details, unjustified luxury reload the appearance so much that such furniture is not suitable even for classic solutions.
What to replace: delicate decor
The pompous classics are replaced by a whole mass of cabinets endowed with delicate and appropriate decorative patterns. It can be unobtrusive accessories, stylish gold piping, and other accents. You should not completely abandon milling on facades, but its shape, general furniture style and materials used should be appropriate in a particular interior.
Cabinets with photo printing on the facades
Do not think that large photo prints showing city views or flowers will add personality or expressiveness to your wardrobe. Such a furniture print is very difficult to fit into the setting due to the excessive contrast.
ATTENTION. If you decide to build the entire interior for photo printing of the cabinet front, then just clutter up the entire space.
What to replace: models without a picture
To add value and seriousness to the interior, give preference to simplicity. Models without patterns in the color of the walls will make the wardrobe an invisible ideal continuation of the living space. Deeper shades will help to emphasize its individuality.
Corner wardrobe with a door in the middle
Another trend that has lost its relevance at the present time is a variation of a corner cabinet with a diagonal door in the middle. This strange shape completely changes the geometry of the living space, making it wrong.
IMPORTANT. The unusual arrangement of the door leaves visually reduces the usable area of the room.
What to replace: corner model without a door in the middle
To keep your space modern and cozy, replace the odd piece of furniture with a cabinet with a standard door arrangement and a pronounced angle. And although it is slightly inferior in terms of spaciousness, it retains the geometry familiar to the eye in the room, without cutting corners.
Get rid of the massive wardrobes that were still popular in the 60s as soon as possible. Open and closed specimens with a bunch of drawers, dressing glasses, sideboards, sideboards located along the entire wall incredibly clutter up the room and do not fit into modern interiors. They create a feeling of heaviness, load the space and push even the residents out of the room.
What to replace: modern solutions
Replace massive wardrobes with simple, ergonomic and functional elements. The most appropriate sound would be built-in furniture using light for zoning the space. And, of course, minimalism is encouraged. Options with smooth facades are perfect. When decorating, you can combine a wide variety of materials: wood, glass, metal, transparent plastic.
