Kitchen-Friendly Colors

After a year of (understandable) caution and restraint, the summer of 2021 is all about taking chances and living fearlessly. While we may not be able to live life 100% normally as of yet, interior design is an excellent way to exercise our desire for adventure. Don’t be afraid of bold colors and striking shades in your kitchen. Dare to be different with hues like fuchsia, yellow, and rouge.

Kitchen Wall Picture Sizes

The size of your canvas depends on the size of your space. If you’re lucky enough to have a large, blank wall in your kitchen, follow this excerpt from our Wall Art Size Guide:

“Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.”

If you have a kitchenette and there’s no room to hang a print in your kitchen, consider placing your print in the hallway leading up to your cooking space:

“Large wall art that measures 36 inches by 75 inches in height and width can create a polished, classic look in your hallway. This wall art size works well in long hallways as well as over your entertainment area.”

Kitchen Wall Picture Ideas: Pro Tips

Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares one last piece of décor guidance:

“In order to make a sleek kitchen feel cozy and inviting, you should start

by incorporating contemporary shapes such as waterfall countertops, slab cabinetry with minimal hardware, neutral color schemes, and personal touches. Here are some options where you can choose from to create a look that is both contemporary and warm:

-Wooden details: You can choose from a variety of colors and types of wood, since all wood is considered characteristically warm. Select a cut of the grain that doesn’t look too rustic.

-Bring warmth through color: Oranges, reds and golds are considered the warmer colors on the color wheel. If you want your kitchen to feel a bit more personal, you can choose a warm accent color. Be playful and daring, just ensure that whatever accent color you choose has warm undertones. Greige is also a good option if you want to split the difference between warm and cool.

- Add texture: Another way to add warmth and richness to a kitchen space is through the use of textured materials.

Voila! You have a kitchen that is both modern and approachable!"
