Your kitchen walls don’t have to be these sad blank surfaces just because they are supposed to be functional and serve to hang for storage. As any other room, a good kitchen decoration needs layerings, focus points and perspective. To highlight your kitchen cabinets, add a splash of color, or simply to make a statement, you can use your kitchen walls in many ways.

We made a little selection of interesting designs to fire up an inspiration spark in your mind. Enjoy the tour and don’t forget to “pin” what you like!
