Are your tears from chopping onions or does your kitchen decor just bore you to tears? Your kitchen doesn’t have to be that sad place where the only decor is a magnet on the refrigerator and a rooster statue in the corner.
One top objective for most people when decorating any living space is to dress up a lot of the blank space with objects that fit their aesthetic. Art fills this void. A piece on the wall or in the corner of every other room is common, but a variety of color and character isn’t always in the kitchen. Every room deserves some design, and a kitchen can take on plenty of personality with the right details.
The question of what to hang in the kitchen is a fun one to explore. Options stretch pretty far – letters that spell out any saying that fits the atmosphere (EAT or YUM, most likely?), prints with themed art of food quotes, color-coordinated wall décor and kitchen utensils, strategically arranged cookbooks with beautiful binds, unique mugs on display – just a few ideas for a kitchen with some wow-factor, pizzazz, elegance, neat touches or some FUN, to put it simply. Even hanging up simple prints that profess your life truths such as “cupcakes are happiness with icing on top” and “caffeine is a food group” are sure to bring smiles.
