Kitchen Wall Décor: Sizes and Layouts

The easiest way to make a visual impact in your kitchen is to hang a piece of well-proportioned wall art. Whether your kitchen is large or small, you can easily find a piece of artwork to fit your space. Before deciding on the design, you have to decide on the right layout and shape for your unique kitchen. Get started with this tip from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:

“Your wall art should take up around 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space; in other words, the portion not covered by moldings, cabinets, or countertops. The first step is to measure the height and width of the wall. Next, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. This will give you the ideal range of canvas print sizes to suit your space.”

The next step is to select a layout that matches your desired aesthetic. For example, if you love to stay on top of trends, choose a trendy two-piece canvas. A single-panel canvas (or framed piece of artwork) has a more traditional look. For a modern, contemporary appearance, go with a 3-5 panel print.

Kitchen Wall Art: Style Ideas

There are several styles of kitchen wall art to choose from. The kitchen has been labeled the “heart of the home” for a reason. Consider a piece of colorful spice-inspired canvas wall art for an eye-catching look. For something more subtle, hang a minimalist print that celebrates the art of cooking. Ultimately, you should choose something that brings you joy and elevates your surrounding décor. Assess the current style of your kitchen, and select a print that enhances rather than distracts from your space.

Renovation Ideas: Eye-Catching Tiles

Tiles are not just for the backsplash or the floor! You can cover an entire wall with beautiful tiles to create a vibrant display. Marble, limestone, slate, and travertine work well on kitchen walls. Out of these materials, the dark and rich-toned slate creates a lovely, textured surface that adds interest to your kitchen. Ceramic, porcelain and glass tiles make cost-effective options for kitchen walls. When it comes to design and styles, you have countless options to choose from.

Creative Wall Decor: Wine Racks

Got a wine lover in your family? Get some recycled wooden pallets and create a hanging wine rack in your kitchen. Cut off the pallet’s bottom and remove the top boards. Next, cut through the middle board's follower by cutting a decorative edge. Finally, sand down all pieces and screw in the top board. Make a glass holder and attach it to the bottom. Voila!

PS If you’re not a fan of the vine, you can also hang a pot rack for organizational purposes. This is an excellent space-saving hack for compact kitchens. Hanging your pots and pans from hooks on the wall can create a modern look and keep your space free of cabinet clutter.
