Creative Decoration of Kitchen Walls

There are many reasons to embark on a kitchen renovation. Some homeowners have purchased a new house, but the kitchen style wasn’t pleasing to them. Others have a growing family and are looking to expand the kitchen’s capacity. Perhaps some people have decided to design a gourmet kitchen to embrace their inner culinary aspirations. Or maybe it’s just time to change things up! If you are one of the many homeowners who love to cook and entertain – or if your kitchen is the natural gathering place for family and friends – kitchen design is just as important as its functionality. That being said, once you decide upon a floorplan, the right appliances, and the best cabinet storage solutions, your eye will probably turn towards how to dress up the decor. This article will look at ways to make your kitchen walls as aesthetically pleasing as the rest of the design.

Life is Art, Art is Life

The possibilities for kitchen wall design and decoration are unlimited. Still, a natural place to begin is with one of the more common choices for wall decoration in any room: artwork. Homeowners often don’t consider artwork for the kitchen, but artistic statement pieces can make a dynamic visual statement. Artwork goes a long way to adding interest, personality, and emotion to a space. The kitchen is no different.  Artwork can be discreet, add little touches, or take up an entire wall to tell a dramatic story.

If you’re ready to add the artwork to your kitchen, the choices are endless. You can choose kitchen-themed art, food-inspired pieces, or even pop art for a more contemporary ambiance. We recommend visiting photo-sharing sites such as Pinterest to see how other homeowners have used creativity to transform their kitchen. On these sites, you will find thousands of inspiration photos that can help you to zero in on an aesthetic. These photos serve as creative inspiration for your own unique vision.

Kitchen Walls as Creative Backdrops

In addition to traditional art, some homeowners choose to experiment with unexpected wall hangings while designing their kitchen. Wander through a thrift store for oversized or antique utensils, pots, and pans to hang from the walls. Look for tapestries with food or cooking themes, or refinish old cookware with bold colors to accent your kitchen walls.

Another creative option for decorating kitchen walls is shelving. Especially if you are working with a smaller kitchen, low-profile shelves adorned with accents, spices, or even herbs can be aesthetic and practical. Shelving in bold colors can also be a great way to add that “pop” you are looking for in a monochromatic-styled kitchen.

One current trend for kitchen walls is the use of oversized lettering in various fonts and colors. These letters are light enough to hang on the walls without causing damage, but they are sturdy and make a large visual impact. Letters could represent cooking-related terms, family names, or inspirational quotes. In fact, any oversized items can make quite the statement – think a beautiful clock or large-scale chalkboard for family messaging.  
There are ways to design beautiful kitchen walls regardless of your style – a farm-style kitchen, a modern contemporary gourmet oasis, or a retro-inspired galley. Decorating the walls can take your home to a whole new level.

Of course, you can also create a kitchen of your dreams by installing new cabinetry, countertops, and appliances. A new kitchen renovation can completely transform your home and give you the gathering place you’ve always envisioned.
