The Internet is awash with photos of beautiful kitchens; some are done in rustic red brick, others with elegant marble walls, and some white-washed, or tiled. In other words, there are a variety of design ideas that come with decorating kitchens. One such option that isn't as well-known (but is just as beautiful) is wallpaper. Some homeowners may find wallpapering intimidating, especially those who are unfamiliar with the process.
Some may think that wallpapering is high maintenance. After all, food spills are common in the kitchen and tiles might seem like the easiest choice in keeping things tidy. However, manufacturers today now make washable alternatives that, unlike traditional wallpaper, are easy to clean and are also wipeable. Some experts recommend three types of wallpaper for the kitchen: vinyl, Novamura, or simply washable wallpaper.
Each of these wallpapers is made of durable, easy-to-clean materials that make it compatible within the kitchen area. Once you've selected the best kind for your space, it's now time for the fun part—choosing a wallpaper design. The best part about wallpaper is that it's a great way to showcase your personality, and can also instantly lift the look of your kitchen without too much work or heavy renovation.
In choosing wallpaper, it's important to consider the rest of your kitchen appliances. Current cabinetry, countertops, or hardware should be assessed in order to choose a pattern or design that won't clash or look dated in a few years. If you're unsure about how to pick the best option for you, it's probably best to consult a trusted interior designer who can help. That, or stick to more minimalist patterns that are more likely to be harmonious with the surroundings.
