Do you remember wall-papered kitchens of old?
You may recall the  cute collection of teapots scattered everywhere you looked. Or, it could have been a ceiling border of grape vines . And who could forget the trailing ivy which was a favorite choice back in the day.
The wallpapers of today are contemporary and elegant.
They can be found in almost any design you can think of. Whether you favor subtle or bold, there is sure to be one that catches your fancy. Check out for fabulous examples.
Wallpapers can be an excellent design choice in a kitchen, especially where we are so used to seeing paint, tiles, and stone applications.
They can also be used in expected places. Take a look at these photos for ideas you may not have thought of.
TIP: When papering behind the sink or stove, use a professionally coated wallpaper or wall coverings made of vinyl for obvious reasons
1)  Paper applied to an accent wall only.
2)  Add eye-catching interest to the front underside of an island.
3)  Give the range hood its own attention.
4)  Look upward for ceiling appeal.

5)  Cover the blank area behind open shelves.
6)  Instead of just paint, paper above wainscoting.
7)  Surround your stove.
8)  Use a wall covering instead of tile or stone.
9)  Separate an eat-in area from the rest of the kitchen.
10)  Give your pantry its own personality.
Until next time…
