A Guide to Innovative and Modern Kitchen Wall Decor
  • Opening Intro -

    Decorating the kitchen is a relatively difficult task – since the room serves for food preparation, may people feel they should choose practical solutions over beauty and great design.


This doesn’t mean that the walls of your kitchen should be just functional and boring – in fact, it’s the kitchen walls that offer you most opportunities for creative decoration. Here are top trends for kitchen wall design to help you personalize your kitchen and make it into the nicest room at your house.

Glass splashbacks

A key trend for kitchen wall decoration are splashbacks that are made of a cutting-edge lacobel glass, a favorite of many architects and interior designers. Adding a single, brightly colored splashback to serve as your wall above the counter will give your kitchen an innovative look. The sleek surface will shine and seem light against the sturdy furniture of your kitchen, offering a perfectly balanced aesthetic environment.

Monochromatic palette

If you’re into tiles, you can try to create a fresh and modern look by using only white and black ones to decorate the walls of your kitchen. Set them up to create a continuous pattern, for instance a zig zag, and run it across the counter in an unexpected way. This will instantly give a touch of personality to your kitchen. If your cabinet space isn’t enough, your can install floating shelves that have interesting geometric shapes that match your pattern.

Cube shelves

This is functionality meeting beauty. Choose a set of cube-shaped shelves, paint them in one color and attach them to the wall one next to the other. Once you’re done, line the backs of those shelves with various wallpapers that fit your style. You’ll create a practical space for all your spices and cookbooks, which will at the same time give a nice touch to the design of your kitchen.

Vintage letters and neons

If you like to scour the web for vintage decorating finds, use your skill to good measure and find items that fit the style of your kitchen. Nothing looks better than the word EAT spelled somewhere next to your stove. When picking a neon, make sure that you really like it – it will attract your gaze every time you step into your kitchen. Vintage signs are another great idea – ads printed on metal plates or shabby chic decorations will be just perfect.

Black on white

One interesting strategy for wall decoration is leaving it completely blank. Painting your walls white, you’ll not only give yourself more freedom to choose unique textiles or runners, but also a breath of fresh air to inspire you to look some long forgotten images and pictures. Put them in wide black frames and place them next to each other in groups of 3 or 4. Simplicity is sometimes the best method for a great kitchen wall decor.

Color your stove

A nice stove can be the central focus point of a kitchen. You can add a splashback of brightly colored glass just above it – this nice pop of color will instantly improve the look of your kitchen and take it from traditional to modern.

Storage racks

There’s no better way to make a kitchen nice and homely than by hanging storage racks from the ceiling and placing your favorite pots and pans there for easy reach. The same can be done with walls – install colorful racks for spoons and stirrers, placing them symmetrically to a given point in your kitchen, for instance the stove.

Wire baskets

Install hand made or bought wire baskets in a vertical grouping on your walls. They’re very functional – you can keep your cookbooks or cooking magazines there, simple decorative items like pots of plants, cute kitchen accessories, colorful table cloths or other things that look good in your kitchen. For an additional touch of creativity, paint your baskets each in a different color and create a pleasant combination.

Plant rail

Place a simple metal rail along one of your walls close to the cooking area. Buy special metal pots that can be attached to the rail and voila! You got yourself a small DIY herb garden – plant a different herb in each pot and enjoy their aromatic taste in your dishes. A spot of green is always a great idea for kitchen decor and this one will make your walls look fantastic.

Chalkboard wall

Make a section or an entire wall of your kitchen (provided it’s not that big) into a large chalkboard where you can attach family photos let your children finally paint on the walls or note down shopping lists and tasks for the day. Use magnets to create a moodboard for your cooking – some inspiration is always welcome in the kitchen!

Decorating the walls of your kitchen, you can create a fresh look, improve its functionality and make it a great space to cook, eat and simply be together – those who call kitchen the heart of every home know what they’re talking about!
