A smart kitchen design layout can make any gourmet feel right at home cooking in cramped quarters. Case in point: the galley layout, which shapes the kitchen into a narrow aisle. By situating the cabinetry and appliances against opposite walls, full-height cabinets are a good option for taking full advantage of your wall real estate.
The options for kitchen wall decoration are just about limitless, but a good place to start is with one of the more common candidates for wall decoration: artwork. Kitchens aren‘t always thought of as primary spaces for the display of wall art. However, as in other rooms in the home, artwork displayed on kitchen walls can add tremendous visual interest and personality to the space.
Not committed to a broad stroke of dramatic color? Then infuse color and pattern through window treatments, a room-anchoring rug, or upholstery in a built-in banquette. Both basics work to soften the kitchen and are a reflection of your personal design style, be it casual or formal, classic or modern. During the decorating process, remember to look up and assess your lighting situation. Although recessed and under-cabinet lights leave the smallest footprint in a small kitchen, a pair of pendant lamps above the center island or a trendy drum shade above the built-in breakfast nook will give the kitchen a finished look.
Trending currently on kitchen walls is the use of oversized, large-format letters in interesting fonts and colors. These are often constructed from thin but sturdy metal to ensure that they‘re light enough to hang but still feel substantial and create significant visual impact. Many homeowners opt for letters with meaning to the household, to represent initials or names.
