As popular a design choice as wallpaper has become in recent years, homeowners and interior decorators are still hesitant about using wallpaper as kitchen wall decor. According to Houzz.com, most people prefer the clean, calming aesthetics of tile or other similar materials on their kitchen walls instead of wallpaper. However, there are many possibilities for designers to get creative with wallpaper in the kitchen.
As most kitchens are fairly ordinary and sterile, with little personality, sometimes the right wallpaper can make a world of difference. The bold designs that jump off Mid-Century Square Citrus will add pop and pizzazz to your kitchen, not to mention a heavy dose of color.
Meanwhile, one key asset of wallpapers is the ability to craft whole themes around them, or to use them to tie a whole room together. For a kitchen, themes are especially available, with a host of designs based on food-related items. Flavor by Valentina Ramos is a charming piece that features some of the most popular and delicious spices, such as basil and rosemary. Its subtle colors will blend in nicely with any kitchen.
Fork and Spoon by Matthew Lew takes a slightly different track with kitchen themes. The simplicity of the single fork and spoon are sharply contradicted, amidst a black and white backdrop that is a unique piece of modern wallpaper with a traditional twist.
