I know as a hostess I love to entertain and also like to make a statement. I enjoy my guests so anything that will help me run my kitchen smoother I’m all for that. Besides that, I get to enjoy my kitchen wall decor every day moving freely throughout my kitchen without the clutter.
Decorating the walls in a kitchen with functional everyday decor can be both beneficial as far as saving on space and also making your kitchen run smoother. I can’t imagine having it any other way.
Having that wrought iron hanging pot rack over my stove gives me quick and easy access to my pots and at the same time gives a warm and homey feeling to my kitchen and also saves on space. Also, those beautiful wrought iron trivets that I use to have to dig out of the back of my kitchen cabinet are now being displayed on my wall and look gorgeous and their functional. A wine rack that hangs on the wall that displays 3 or 4 bottles of my favorite wine for me or my friends to choose from. My collection of serving trays that I display above my kitchen cabinets that match my decor that is great for serving my favorite hors d’oeuvres and are on hand when needed. The wall rack with hooks hanging up next to my back door is great for fast and easy access to my incoming and outgoing mail, memo pad, pens, and keys. Let’s not forget my BIG round clock that hangs in the dining area that makes a bold statement or the wall art that is grouped together on the wall.
It’s such a pleasure to be able to sit in my kitchen and to look around and see how pretty it looks as well as how organized it also feels. Just know that it does take some work at designing a layout on how you want your kitchen to flow and what particular style you’re looking for. You may want that French country, modern sharp sleek look or may be just traditional. So, sit back have that cup of coffee and take in your surroundings. Think about what you love about your kitchen and what you would like to do to improve on it. Look for space on the walls. Let your imagination go and keep it simple, clean, organized and functional. Remember to keep your kitchen decor within the same theme in order for it to flow together nicely.
