Is the kitchen the most important part of the home?

Add wallpaper to your kitchen.

I don’t’ know about you, but I spend most of my time in the kitchen. Over the course of the past 20 years or so, kitchens started to become living spaces.

The kitchen is where we start the day with our loved ones, with a cup of tea and some porridge before running out the door and the place where we tell tales of our day come dinner time. The area we all gravitate to at parties, the room I remember fondly as a child cooking with my mum sat and sat on the work tops chatting. Now having a child, it is the room I need to clean the most!

Kitchens are not sedated and quiet rooms. They are rooms filled with energy, aroma, and texture.

Creating a kitchen, you want to spend time in should be approached as you would a living room or bedroom. Begin thinking about colour and pattern as this will fill you with more joy than a line of pine cupboards ever will!

Many people avoid wallpaper in the kitchen for fear of the smells, splashes and humid atmosphere. But with wallpaper technology and design advancing constantly, wallpaper has become so much more durable. 

The main types of wallpaper which are recommended for use in a kitchen are vinyl and washable wallpapers. If you were still concerned about having a wallpaper as a splashback you could apply a layer of plexiglass over the wall. Or apply two coats of ‘Polyvine Decorators Varnish in Dead Flat’ over the top of the wallpaper as this will help protect against sticky little fingers, scuffs and stains. 

Wallpaper is cheaper, easier and a more time-effective alternative to tiling. It is perfect for adding colour, texture and pattern into any room and should not be left out of the kitchen!

So having convinced you that you should add wallpaper to you kitchen how do you go about choosing one?

Fortunately, all of the wallpapers we stock at Annika Reed Studio are wipeable and I can print onto vinyl if you wish please email to discuss possibilities.

All our wallpapers offer a burst of energy whether you opt for something simple and warm or something colourful and dynamic all will brighten up the atmosphere of the kitchen.

 Where will you work wallpaper into the kitchen?

Statement walls, the ceiling, inside of the cupboards, the cutlery drawer…
