Kitchen Wall Decor Tips

Here are some quick decorating tips anyone can apply in their home. You’ve probably seen the latest design magazines one time or another when it comes to kitchen decorating and design.

You then most likely sighed wistfully, knowing full well that you don’t have the budget and time to remodel the place in your home where culinary magic happens. Don’t fret! You don’t need to take out a bank loan any longer in order to get that remodeling job. Instead, you need to get creative to improve your kitchen presentation in an eye-pleasing fashion.

#1. Coming Up with Wall and Appliance Decorations:

The most noticeable changes you can do to your kitchen are done through its walls. We all see things at eye level first, after all. You can repaint the walls or decide which hooks or racks to put on it, for instance.

You can then move on to the appliances, countertops, and cooking gadgets. Decorate your wall by moving these things around so that it’s not left bare, even if it’s as simple as finding a place to hang your colander.

#2. The Secret to Color and Décor

A designer’s secret to color is all about knowing how colors correlate to one another. You can find analogous colors, contrasting colors, or different shades of the same color to match the color of your wall.

If your kitchen color can’t be changed because you lack money for painting, you can at least change the color, design, placement, or arrangement of utensils, tools, pots, pans, cabinets, and countertop.

#3. Start with a Focal Point of Your Kitchen

When coming up with a kitchen decorating idea or theme, you should start with a focal point when you first come across the kitchen and just stand there in admiration of its look.

Usually, your focal point is the focal wall, but it could be a focal oven or a focal faucet and sink instead. Figure out what you notice first when looking at your kitchen then use that focal point as the anchor or foundation for the rest of your design.

#4. Open Shelving and The Latest Kitchen Décor Trends

Once you’ve come up with a focal point or wall then updated your kitchen with fresh, fashion-forward colors, now it’s time to add trends to it. Decors should come in layers that contribute to the overall look, like in the case of decorating a Christmas tree properly so that all the decorations end up with a unifying look.

The latest trend in the 2010s is upper-cabinet-free kitchens that are open-shelf. This look creates visual space and is functionally practical to boot.

Tie Everything Up by Carefully Curating Your Décor

A focal point prevents chaos from happening with your design. Also, open shelving works by hiding away any mismatched Tupperware and glasses.

To tie all these design ideas up, you should set your kitchen apart using your personal taste. Make your boring wall or sink interesting by gathering objects together for decoration. You can add things like a variety of mirrors, vintage dishes, framed wallpaper, fabric swatches, baskets, album covers, and more to your kitchen gallery.
