The kitchen isn’t the first place we think of when we are planning out the wall decor of our home and our apartment, but there are many reasons to put some extra thought into the way that you decorate your kitchen space.
After all, cooking is all about inspiration — and what could be more inspiring than looking at some beautiful decor that reflects your tastes and interests!?
Here, we will offer 24 different wall decor ideas for a variety of preferences, so that you can stop dreaming about your dream kitchen and start cooking in it instead!
Farmhouse Wall Designs
Hanging Rolling Pin
Rolling pins are not only a handful tool for making delicious pie crusts. They can also make great rustic decorations for a kitchen wall! You can either hang your functional rolling pin on a hook so that it is available for practical use, or you can take it to the next level with a decorative collection of rolling pins such as what is seen here.
Wood and Clipboard Hanging Photos
What could be more farmhouse chic than a wooden clipboard? These stylish pieces are not just for use in a classroom, they also make a cheap and beautiful wall design if implemented correctly. Here is an example from Love Grows Wild.
Feed Sack Curtains
We’re interpreting farmhouse style quite literally in the next one. We just love the way that Funky Junk Interiors made these stylish curtains out of recycle feed sacks for only $7. How creative!
Vintage Wall Designs
Framed Fork and Spoon
If you have an old cherished set of cutlery that you want to retire from circulation but don’t want to part with, it might be a good idea to incorporate it into your wall design. Here is a tutorial from Spunky Junky, who used this craft as a way to immortalize the cutlery they used at their wedding.
Vintage Bakery Sign
Something about this quaint bakery sign gives the feeling of being on a Parisian street in the 1960s. A sign with elegant calligraphy is a great way to give your home the charm that can be found abroad without ever stepping on a plane!
Hanging Antique Plates
Hanging ceramic places on a wall may seem like a design choice that is straight out of your grandmother’s kitchen, but as we all know, trends from decades passed are now coming back in full force. For best results, hang plates that have a matching color palette, as seen in this example.
Coffee-Inspired Wall Designs
Metal Coffee Letters
Everyone knows that the most important food or beverage to be made in the kitchen is coffee! Why not pay homage to this magical drink with a stylish metal lettering that can be found on Amazon?
Large Coffee Station
The only thing better than a coffee-themed decorative piece is a wall design that serves a purpose! This DIY coffee station offers ample space for your coffee machine, coffee accompaniments, and of course your favorite mugs.
Small Coffee Station
If you like the decorative look of a coffee station but want something a bit smaller, this small coffee station might be the right choice for you. While it is possible to buy a small coffee shelf online, you could also make one yourself with relative ease.
Modern Kitchen Wall Art
There are many ways to incorporate letter art into your kitchen design — but sometimes, even with all of the options, less is more. This subdued lettering will appeal to those with minimalist tases.
Black and White Photography
Black and white photography art is the perfect match for a modern kitchen. This is especially true if you have a bright space that you would like to see evened out, or if you are going for a monochrome theme in your living spaces.
Humorous Wall Art
Sometimes the best ingredient that we could add to any meal is laughter! Make sure that every meal comes with a pinch of cheer by hanging humorous wall art in your kitchen space. We love these punny selections available at Nordic Wall Art.
Food-Themed Kitchen Wall Art
Herbs and Spices
It’s not only useful to have herbs and spices on display in your kitchen space. Like flowers and vines, herbs and spices are an attractive part of nature that can go a long way in brightening up a space. Get the look here.
Your kitchen is not like any other room in your house, so why should you decorate it as if it is? Sometimes the best art inspiration is sitting right in front of you. Kitchen equipment such as mixers and utensils make for great artwork, as do kitchen creations such as cupcakes as seen here.
The only thing that can make your kitchen art better is making it useful! If you do a lot of baking, it’s best that you hang up this cute poster for your quick reference.
Floral Kitchen Wall Art
Floral art is uncommon, but metal floral art? Less so. This floral art piece from Etsy is uniquely beautiful and well-suited for kitchen spaces.
If you’re looking for something a bit less three dimensional, an art print may be a better fit for you. Of course, there is no shortage of floral prints to choose from on the internet, but we are partial to these prints from Annie Dornan Smith.
If prints aren’t your style either, a decal is another way to get a splash of floral style onto your walls. While they are most often associated with a bedroom or office space, a floral decal makes for an unusual and bright kitchen space. Here is a beautiful peony wall decal from Rocky Mountain Decals.
Grocery List Wall Art
This idea is ingenious! If you feel like you are always writing (and then losing) grocery lists, then what could be more practical than a piece of parchment paper. Once you have used up the space with a grocery list, you can simply roll the parchment paper down and have a blank slate. You can also take a picture of the list that you have written so that you can put it to work at the grocery store. Buy your own large parchment grocery list here.
A chalkboard is another practical way to organize which kitchen supplies and ingredients need replenishing. Long gone are the days of having to install a chalkboard on the wall, though — it is now possible to purchase chalkboard wallpaper material that you can use to make lists on. Find it at Potterybarn.
Chalkboard on Cupboard
If you like the idea of a chalkboard but do not want to give up an entire wall, there are other more space-conscious solutions. One such example is this chalkboard cabinet that serves a dual purpose: it serves as a place to make a grocery list as well as serves for a rustic decoration for your kitchen space.
Minimalist Kitchen Wall Art
Sometimes, when it comes to art, less is certainly more. At least that’s the theory behind this stripped-down stack of bowls that comes in a simple black-and-white design. Black and white art looks especially great hung over a kitchen table or breakfast nook.
Black and White Fruit Print
This pineapple print offers two things that we look for in kitchen art: a simplistic black and white style, and a fruit-themed piece of art. This Etsy print of a pineapple is sure to give your kitchen a tropical vibe, even if you are multiple miles from the beach.
Minimalist Boho Hanging
This adorable Bohemian-style wall hanging can be made from materials that you likely already have around the house! The end result is a unique piece of art that makes a nice alternative to the regular prints and decals of the world. Get the details at Lavender Julep.
So there you have it — 24 unique ways to make the most out of your kitchen space. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly start to cook more if the aesthetics of your kitchen are more visually pleasing. It just comes with the territory! Happy cooking.
