Unique Wall Decor-Kitchen Wall Decorating Ideas


Kitchen Wall Decorating

Kitchen walls are usually forgotten but I hope to inspire and open your creativity up to some kitchen wall decorating ideas. Our kitchen is where my family’s heart is. Like most people I know, it is the gathering place for laughter, love, new beginnings and old memories.

My husband has a passion for food and cooking. In our house he is the primary meal maker. I know, I am blessed indeed, however the love for his family is displayed in his food and that’s why the kitchen is our favorite place in our house and we spend a lot of time there.

We are usually off to work and school every morning and find ourselves going without eating, grabbing a granola bar or picking up something along the way. Breakfast around the table in the morning like in the movies is just not the norm for us. However, Saturday morning breakfast is a big thing for our family as we make plans for our day and the upcoming week.

Currently my kitchen is in desperate need of some updating and we will be starting that process soon. When we begin toΒ  renovate, I will be sure to show you our process step by step. In the meantime, I thought it would be really cool to start with some kitchen wall decor ideas to get us motivated.

French Country Kitchen Wall Decor

First, lets begin by defining French Country. This style of design reminds us of the rural French countryside with color palettes of neutrals and greige. Greige is a combination of gray and beige. You may also see colors from all over the color wheel like greens, blues and soft yellows lending themselves to this decor style to produce a warm and inviting feeling into your space. Elegant prints and toile fabrics also play a role in accomplishing this look.


Visiting garage sales and flea markets are both excellent ways to collect the furnishings that are perfect for this particular design style. Choose signs that display words like “Grocery” or Kitchen” to spruce up the walls. Paint old mason jars with a matte chalk color, apply labels and place on floating shelves. Create a chalk board wall and frame it out with rustic wood accents to present today’s menu.


Copper Kitchen Wall Decor

How beautiful would it be to grace your walls with copper! Create a focal point with copper sheets in a horizontal pattern to form a unique and rustic accent wall. If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, then apply a marbleized copper wallpaper to get your copper fix in. The wallpaper designs have really improved over the years and there are multiple patterns to choose from that are not only affordable but also have the modern decorator in mind.

Hang a collection of copper framed mirrors to your kitchen walls to add a little flair. This can be a diy project to improve your uninspired mirrors by putting those loose pennies to good use and framing them. You may even like the look of copper pudding and cake molds as a collection on your kitchen walls.


Tuscan Kitchen Wall Decor

The Tuscan design style provides us with aged finishes, terracotta tiles, plaster walls and iron scroll work. Creams, browns, beige and rusted reds with accents of yellows and golds make up the color scheme. Consider adding sconces with some iron scroll work mimicking vines on your walls or some vegetable and fruit decor to inject some Italian flavor. There are even some nice Tuscan wall panels you can place on your walls to add the Tuscan feel.

Modern Kitchen Wall Decor

Try a cabinet free approach by using open shelving to display your beautiful and colorful dishes or cookware and add visual space. Add a touch of personality with gallery wall collections. You can use framed recipe cards, plates, baskets and more to create a collection. There are vinyl wall decals that have an assortment of sayings for applying a fresh look to your kitchen design.

Implement a well-ordered utensil display. This can be accomplished by using metal or wood utensils. Using a peg board is another good way to display a collection by hanging different coffee mugs. Bring the outside in by creating a living wall to add some greenery. You can use old curtain rods to mount your precious pottery with the herbs and spices from your garden. Hanging fruit baskets double as a space saver as well as a decorative piece for your walls.


Try It

I just named a few of the many kitchen wall art ideas. Try some of these and let me know how it turns out in the comments. If you have any other ideas that were not mentioned here, feel free to comment below. I would love to hear about it. As always, be inspired, be bold and don’t be afraid. Happy Decorating!

    1. Hi Lynne,
      It depends on your personal taste, however I like Etsy because most things on here are handmade and not mass produced so you are sure to find some really cool and unique items on there. I found Kirklands to have some really cute kitchen decor and not for a lot of money. Be sure to check in weekly for all your decorating needs. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes!

  2. Davona, I LOVE that your family gathers for breakfast on Saturday mornings – what a great way to stay connected while building a family tradition.

    1. Hey Rae,
      Great to hear from you! Yes my husband is one of a kind.

  6. My wife loves copper and Tuscan styles so I can definitely agree with you on those options. She is always looking for ways to freshen up the kitchen, I will have to share this article with her. We live in the Southwest United States, so Tuscan kind of goes with the territory here. The copper accents definitely add to that feel as well. Thanks for sharing your ideas in this very interesting post.

    1. Hi Steve!,
      I am so happy you found some inspiration in this article. I love the look of copper. My husband used to be a roofer and he had the pleasure of doing a few copper roofs(very pricey) and when it rains and when the copper oxidizes it looks amazing! Thank you for your comment. Be sure to tell your wife to check in for my weekly decorating tips! Best wishes.

  7. Like many people that sit in front of HGTV, I love looking at anything that has to do with interior design. My kitchen is the wine and grape theme, I guess I always had a thing for that Italian flare. I like some of the ideas you provide like the framed recipe cards and of course hanging plates. I can’t wait to see some more of your ideas. Thanks for the sharing these ideas!

  8. I’ve been seeing so many “French country” themed things on Pinterest lately and everything always looks so cute and cozy! You’ll definitely have to give updates when you start re-doing your kitchen.

    1. Hey Chelsea!
      Thank you for your comment. I am falling in love with the french country because it has notes of the rustic farmhouse which I love too. I am so excited to get this transformation on video. Stay tuned!

    1. Hi Crystal,

      Diy is probably my favorite because it has your very own touch. We once redid our daughters bunk beds and they turned out so nice. We were able to keep them for 3 more years. We just got them new ones because they just grew out of them. Flea markets are a way to keep your budget in check also. Thank you for your comment and have a great day!

  11. Hi Davona, although I don’t have much talent in cooking, I only follow Youtube instructional videos everytime I cook, lol, I would love to have a black and white kitchen wall decor, with mirrors and glasses all around. I think decorating is one of the activities I haven’t put much emphasize nowadays. Thank you for reminding me. I might try it this coming weekend. Looking forward to see your renovated kitchen as well.

  13. We live in an old farm house, over 100 years old and just remodeled our kitchen. We wanted it to not look new we kept as much as we could of the old architecture and my decorations go along with the farm house theme. Love your post! Kitchens are so much fun to decorate and design.

  14. I’ve never decorated my kitchen before the one I have now, but I needed something to cover a really ugly wall. These are great ideas!

  15. I would love to try the open shelving in my next house, I love that look. I wish I had a bigger kitchen now because I love the mix of rustic and contemporary. I love mixing elements…at least in my head, I stink at doing it outside my head!

  16. I live these ideas! My kitchen has so many themes going on at the moment. I live for garage sales and visiting antique stores too. I find so many original pieces. I’m going to definitely look around the site for some more inspiration and ideas to get my kitchen in order πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Tamika!
      Yes, garage sales and flea markets are great ways to find original decor that you will not see in your neighbor’s house. I love the show flea market flip. I also have an article to help you find your design style, please check this out for a reference. Be sure to check in for my weekly decorating tips and thank you for your comment. Best wishes!

  17. Wall art makes such a difference in the home and the kitchen is sometimes overlooked as a place for it. You provided such great options. One of my favorite things to do is shop different places for odd items to use in decorating, so thrift shops, hobby stores, and garage sales are high on my list.

    1. Cecil,
      You are telling the truth! Kitchens usually aren’t looked at as needing wall art but like the other rooms it will complete the look. I too love thrift store finds. Thank you for your comment and be sure to check in for my weekly decorating tips. Best wishes.

  18. These are excellent ideas, so many times I have redecorated my entire house, over-looking my kitchen because I had no fresh and creative ideas. Thanks to you, That’s no longer a problem! I love wall art, but the only thing decorating my kitchen walls are a recent 2018 calendar, and a “Live, Life, Love” plack. Definitely making late Spring Changes!

  19. Bravo and thanks you for personal 21 hacks ideas! It is very useful and this will save us, time, money and frustration! My 2 favorite is the tennis ball in the dryer for lumpy comforter and hair tie around the soap dispenser !!

  20. Love this post! These are the simple and easy way to change the whole look of the kitchen on a budget. I am inspired by your work and got some great ideas. Thanks and keep sharing.

    1. Hi Steven,
      Everything can be done on a budget and still look professional and beautiful. You just got to find a way to make it work. So glad that you were able to find some inspiration with this article. Thanks
