Stamp some style on your kitchen walls with pattern and texture
The kitchen is your home’s busiest living space, and that can mean there’s a tendency to keep design simple and pared down.
However, wallpaper can completely transform a space of dominated by one-colour cabinetry, adding real personality to what has always been a purely functional space. The kitchen is very often the heart of your home – and somewhere you spend a large proportion of your time – so it’s important that it reflects your style.
You can go for bold by papering every wall in the room, like The Pink House kitchen in the gallery below, or choose one feature wall to cover in print to help define a zone in a multifunctional space. Or you can even use your favourite wallpaper as a splashback covered with glass.
Whether you’re looking to update your kitchen or if you’re starting a design from scratch, these bold wallpaper will help inspire a new approach.
Get the look: This wallpaper, called Dark Floral, features lifelike paintings of flowers by designer Ellie Cashman, who was inspired by Dutch masters such as Rembrandt.
Get the look: A brass sink and taps add a cool edge to the traditional feel of the wallpaper.
Get the look: This is Drape wallpaper from the Geometric collection at Cole & Son. Using a couple of different wallpapers close to each other tricks the eye, bouncing light around and bringing lashings of personality and humour. The bar stools were bought in a junk shop and revamped with Altfield leather.
Get the look: The eye-tricking velvet flock wallpaper has an almost 3-D effect, heightened by the use of another wallpaper pattern in the adjoining space.
Get the look: This wallpaper is Sandberg's Malin Black, and the clock is from Graham & Green Brixton. Bright pops of colour in the Bert & May green zig-zag encaustic tiles and pink Siham glazed tiles on the breakfast bar inject energy.
