Though the kitchen may not be the first place you think to display your favourite images, in recent times it’s become an increasingly popular choice for wall art – and we totally understand the appeal! As a room where all members of the household gather and that everyone uses on a daily basis, the kitchen is a focal point of the home that deserves some much-needed love and attention. If you’re ready to revitalise your kitchen area and breathe personality into your space, read on for our top kitchen wall art ideas.
Use Kitchen Favourites as Inspiration
Everyone has their own kitchen style, whether it’s rustic, monochrome, sleek or minimalist, so we recommend pinpointing a few kitchen objects that capture the feel of your space and using them as inspiration for your wall art. You could choose some homemade bread for a farmhouse style kitchen or some freshly trimmed herbs for a natural and airy space. The only rule is to opt for something that complements the style of your space and brings you joy to look at.
Once you’ve decided on the object you’ll showcase, it’s time to bring your vision to life! Search online stock image libraries for pre-existing photos to download (we recommend Unsplash for high-quality, free licensed images) or grab your camera and take your own. Check out our blogs on food photography and still-life photography for ideas on how to create your perfect shot.
Feature Your Family Photos in Your Kitchen Wall Art
If you’re wondering how to decorate a kitchen in a way that will please all the family, the answer is simple… put their faces on display! Take a moment to look back through your photos together and pick one that evokes memories of a happy time. Research shows that looking back at happy photos brings feelings of positive mental wellbeing, so displaying a memory shared amongst your loved ones is a great way to make your kitchen an instant mood-boosting room.
Our top tips for choosing your snaps include picking a colour palette to match your kitchen and mixing family portraits in with complementary images of nature, landscapes, textures or whatever may appeal to you. Above all, pick some images that showcase your relationship as a family and the individual personalities within – you can’t get more unique and customised wall art than with photos of those you love most!
Turn to Typography for Stylish Kitchen Art
Although our love for photos is no secret, our range of wall art isn’t just for the photos from your camera roll. Why not spotlight a quote, song lyric or saying that means a lot to you on a piece of kitchen wall art? Think of words that are important to you and create your own typography wall art. Launch our CEWE Creator Software and you can use the inbuilt text feature and huge variety of clip art to personalise your wall art exactly to your liking. You could also create your design on a platform like Canva, save it as an image and add it in to your CEWE creation.
Once you’ve selected your snap, it’s important to choose a wall art format that’s just right for your kitchen. If the photo will be displayed very close to where food is prepared or eaten, opt for a durable and hard-wearing Aluminium Print or a Gallery Print. Otherwise, if you need to brighten a small kitchen where space is at a premium, choose one of our Wood Photo Prints for a more compact way to display your typography.
Relive Your Travels Each Day
Fortunately, there’s a way to make those unforgettable times truly unforgettable, and that’s by preserving your holiday photos on wall art to display within your home. Not only will you be reminded each day of your special memories from the trip, you’ll also have a photo on show that’s personal to you and a great talking point for guests to your home.
Here, we created a Collage Canvas Print with a few selected highlights of a trip, but if you’re after something even more high-impact you might like a Panoramic Canvas Print to really steal the attention of visitors. You could even choose a few photos to add to hexxas photo tiles, where you can rearrange and replace each individual image as and when you wish – perfect for when you need to give a tile a quick clean or if you want to switch some photos during the festive season to add to your Christmas decor!
