Kitchen Décor Ideas

Kitchens can be a tricky room to decorate, with many having walls that are tiled in places, and not much wall room to add wallpaper or different colours of paint. However, there are many ways in which you can use the already existing features of your kitchen to create some original and unique kitchen décor ideas.

Contrasting tiles

Most kitchens will have tiles in some places, whether just above the oven and sink as splash backs, or surrounding your whole work top. Choosing tiles in contrasting colours to each other can create an edgy appearance and add more vibrancy to your kitchen. To keep a consistent theme, you could coordinate your tile colours to match with your existing worktop overlays, or have all the tiles the same colour but at a sharp contrast to the worktops.

Wall art

You may have little room in your kitchen for hanging pictures or canvases, however, alternatives such as wall decals in Australia can be a brilliant way to decorate your kitchen. Many wall stickers and wall decals come available as text art, with the saying ‘the kitchen is the heart of the home’ being a firm favourite for kitchen use. You could also design your own text to use on the wall art, as many manufacturers will print a design or text according to what you choose. The possibilities are endless, so there will definitely be an option available that will look perfect in your kitchen.


If you have room for wallpaper in your kitchen, you might want to consider designing a custom wallpaper to add a bit of individuality and a quirky feel to your kitchen. Many manufacturers will design wallpapers to suit your taste, and you can buy specially designed kitchen wallpaper that is more durable than the regular rolls. If you’re looking for a wallpaper design that coordinates with the current colour theme of your kitchen, custom wallpaper is an excellent way of ensuring that you get a design that matches perfectly. If you’re a budding artist and good at painting your own designs, you could even create a design yourself on plain wallpaper for a really original style.


Types of kitchen flooring such as tiles and vinyl are available in many different colours, and sometimes you could even make the floor the main feature in your kitchen. By sticking to neutral, light colours such as white or cream for your wall décor and fittings, you can create an edgy, modern contrasting look by fitting a brightly coloured floor with a patterned design.
