How to Choose Wall Decor for Kitchen
Obviously, not everything that you like may be used for the kitchen decoration. When you choose the wall decorations, you need to take into account several things:
- Location where you are going to place art (it’s pretty hard to find the item, which will look ideally in any part of the room)
- Color scheme of the kitchen (the art can be not only in matching but also in contrastive colors)
- Style of the kitchen design (the style of the wall decoration must correspond to the kitchen design)
- The size of the wall art you need (you need to know minimum and maximum size of the necessary wall art)
- Your personal taste (clearly, you shouldn’t buy something you don’t like)
In truth, there are dozens of ways of decorating the kitchen walls starting from simple pictures to complicated art hangings. If you want to have functional decorations, you may choose beautiful tiles for the backsplash or opt for creative shelving.
The tiles designs aren’t available in different colors only. They may feature images, photos and even works of art. Also, the tiles differ in sizes, forms and effects. The shelves are always necessary at kitchen. That’s why, by choosing a shelf of a creative form or color, you will immediately enhance the kitchen design.

There are many variants, among which are painted and printed art as well as kitchen wall hangings made of wood, metal, glass and more unusual materials. And don’t forget that if you are a creative personality, you may bring to life one or a couple of DIY kitchen wall decor projects.
Kitchen Wall Decor Ideas
Now, let’s have a look at 5 cool ideas of wall decorations for kitchen.
The food poster, which you can order here, isn’t just the photo of food. It’s a work of art. What we like about it is that the vegetables, fruit, greenery and seeds are placed very beautifully and create an incredible picture. Such a print is suitable for the majority of kitchen designs, including traditional and modern styles.
Such a printed picture may add brightness to the kitchen if it has monotonous walls in light colors. Also, it’s suitable for brighter and darker walls. Thus, it’s well-combined with red, green and brown wall colors. This food poster can be printed in various sizes, but we recommend A1 or, at least, A2 format. By placing a large print, you don’t have to break your brains, thinking about other decorations. The prices are rather affordable: $29.95 for A1 and $19.95 for A2 glossy posters.
