Kitchen Wall Decor: 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.
