While your kitchen may not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking about adding wall art, it should definitely not be overlooked. After all, it’s likely that you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, especially if you enjoy cooking. So why not add some more excitement and love to the walls of your kitchen by framing your favorite photos or creating custom canvas prints. We’ve cooked up a list of tips on how to add wall art to your kitchen so that don’t miss the opportunity to add that spark that your kitchen needs.
1. Hang it on the walls
Yes, we’re keeping it simple to start since it’s not always so obvious to find available wall space in the kitchen. If you have wall space that’s unoccupied by appliances or cabinets, then that’s the perfect spot to start. Some great places include the wall behind your kitchen table, the space between your windows, or you can even try hanging a few canvas prints pieces vertically on a narrow wall that you may otherwise be left blank. Another awesome way to hang your wall art is to fill the space above countertops that have no shelves above them. This will create a really unique look and family prints will bring warmth to your walls, other than just the heat coming from the oven.
2. Create a backsplash
If you don’t have tiling or a backsplash above your countertops or below your cabinets, then frame prints can be the perfect addition to fill that blank space. A frame is your best bet here since the glass will protect it from the occasional grease spatter. This is also a clever way to add that pop of color that your kitchen was missing.
3. Place it on a shelf
Open shelving and floating shelves are the top new kitchen trends and really open up your space. Take advantage of this trend and make it your own by adding plants, cool decorative items and, of course, leaning canvas or framed prints.
4. Arrange it above cabinets
If none of these spaces work in your kitchen, not to worry, you can still display your canvas above your cabinets. Yes, you read that correctly, hang them above your cabinets or lean them against the wall and think outside of the status quo. If your kitchen is tall enough, above the upper cabinets is actually a really cool spot to place your favorite art. It draws the eye up making the space look even larger, not to mention, a one-of-a-kind stylish look that ties your kitchen together.
Good food, a warm kitchen and personalized wall art are what makes a house a home. So add some wall art to your kitchen to make it a more inviting space that people will love to gather in and share important moments together. With your beautiful custom canvas prints and frames, you can bet there will be too many cooks in the kitchen. Also, CanvasPop canvas prints are water, fade, scratch, crack and warp-resistant which means they can handle the heat of the kitchen and all the potential messes that come with it.
