Spice up Your Kitchen with Art!

Posted on 13 January 2015

I love artwork to fill every space that it can in a house, and more often than not the kitchen is the most overlooked when placing fine art. With many homeowners opting for open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, it seems like you wouldn't be able to find space for much else. But there is always room for art!

Selecting artwork for the kitchen and dining area is always my favorite, because it’s a place for family to come together, share in conversation and take delight in creating a dish, and for you at-home chefs a place for inspiration and creativity! Large, stainless steel appliances can often make the kitchen feel sterile and unwelcoming, but adding pops of color and sentimentality with art instantly warms the space!

 

If You Can't Stand the Heat...

For kitchens, I always try selecting artwork that will be framed and behind glass, so it's protected from potential kitchen spills!

Art for All

Kitchens are a high-traffic areas, which makes them great environments to highlight a piece of significant value or sentimentality.

All Around Color

Placing artwork on or above kitchen shelving brings color upwards onto bland walls.

No Window, No Problem

For those kitchens that don't have a window above a sink place a large artwork that offers depth and a unique perspective.

Winter is perfect for spending time in the kitchen with friends and family testing out new recipes and catching up, so create a warm and welcoming space by adding color and spice with art!
