Are you looking for a unique and creative way to decorate your kitchen? Art is a great way to add a touch of beauty and sophistication to any kitchen space. Whether it’s a painting, sculpture, art glass, kids finger paintings, or any other type of artwork, you can create a beautiful and inviting atmosphere in the kitchen simply by adding interesting artwork. We will explore some of our favorites ways that Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly clients have used art when decorating their kitchens and hope these photos inspire you to incorporate art into your kitchen that reflects your personal style.

Paintings: Oil, Watercolors, Mixed Media, or Prints

One of the most creative and easiest ways to add a personal touch to your kitchen is by using art in the kitchen for decorating. Go on the hunt for artists whose works you love that resonate or have special meaning to you. I love the personal connection a piece of art you selected has once hung in your kitchen.  Whether it’s a cityscape, landscape, or abstract piece of art, the pieces our clients chose in these photos totally enhance the kitchen with a touch of color and personality.

Using Abstract Images or Mosaics in the Tilework

Abstract art can be a great way to spice up a kitchen. With bold shapes and vibrant colors, abstract pieces can bring life to any space. Whether it’s a large canvas or a small framed print or a mosaic mural, adding abstract art to the kitchen will create a unique and interesting focal point. If your kitchen does not have much color and leans on the neutral side, then incorporating abstract or any other art form into your kitchen decor can create a fresh and modern look.

Kitchen Backsplash Art

Adding art to your kitchen backsplash using tile, metal murals, or a mosaic artists work, is a great way to make a bold statement and inject personality into the room. The design elements you add to your kitchen backsplash can pull the whole look together while making it uniquely yours. The mural above was based on a painting made by the client’s grade school teacher and then was created by a mosaic tile artist with thousands of tiny glass pieces. (Artist was Artsaics in Deer Park, Long Island)

Art elements in metal or wood like these room dividers can be used to enliven kitchen spaces and enhance the aesthetic of the room. Incorporating speical design patterns into your kitchen can create a stunning textural focal point and give the space a very WOW factor. We love this space-separating wall featured in our client’s “Chinese Feng Shui Kitchen.” The design is based on the Chinese Bagua Diagram creating balance and promoting positive energy.

Art in Kitchen Decor

Artistic kitchen decor can also come in the form of finding the perfect art-glass vase, a wooden bowl, an antique scale, or colorful canisters. We love when clients mix old and new or when they mix textures and fabrics to create their own look. Be sure to check out our kitchen gallery to see more ways to decorate your kitchen with interesting art.
