4 Spots to add Artwork in the Kitchen


A kitchen is more than just a functional space. It is the most used room in the home, and should even be personalized in that way. Adding decorative items or artwork to a kitchen space is a great way to make it your own, and it adds that little extra something, enhancing the entire room. Placement of any artwork in the kitchen is key to ensure it does not interfere with functionality, yet still adds to the overall design . Even the types and location of the artwork make a big difference. For example, any artwork on the walls, should be hung at eye level, unless the eye-line should be drawn upward. Other items such as colorful pieces should be kept away from direct sun to prevent color fading as well. Nevertheless, the best locations for artwork in the kitchen are given below.

Above Upper Cabinets: With upper cabinets in the kitchen, there is always some dead space above which looks extremely bare unless something is placed on it. Therefore, add interesting pieces to the upper cabinets to draw the eye-line upward, and create that visual interest. It is a great area to place interesting sculptures or framed art pieces, as they are well out of way, yet still add some character to the kitchen space.

Near the Entrance: The kitchen entrance is a great place to add some energy as soon as you walk into the kitchen. The entrance or doorway to the kitchen typically has empty wall space next to it. Therefore, it is a great space to hang some wall art and add a bit of color to that blank space in the kitchen.

Open Shelving: As mentioned in many previous blogs, open shelves are great for displaying collections and storing items. They also great for placing artwork in the kitchen, yet still being out of the way of kitchen activities. Open shelves can be used to display beautiful dishes or framed paintings. The way the shelves are still being used, yet there is visual interest at the same time.

Above the Sink: Hanging artwork above the sink is quite unique. If there is room, the wall space above the sink will create immediate visual interest, and will give an element of surprise. In hanging items above the sink, ensure they are framed and hung a little bit higher to stay out of the moisture zone.
