Wall Stickers For Your Kitchen

Why Choose Wall Stickers?

Or maybe the better question is 'What Are Wall Stickers?' When people decide to decorate their kitchen they are faced with a series of difficult challenges - how to organise the space, what cupboards to choose and which theme to select to achieve the desired effect. Once these decisions have been made, and the installation process completed, it's all about refinement.
The smaller details matter just as much and, if anything, can sometimes present home owners with a much harder brief to fulfil.
Wall stickers are decorative items that can be adhered to a surface within a matter of minutes by following an extremely simple six stage process. They are available in a range of categories - one of which has been created especially for kitchens.
As with any room in your house, the decorative items you choose cannot be arbitrary. That's why we've outlined some themes and ideas for you to consider when choosing wall stickers for your kitchen.

How Big Is Your Kitchen?

This might sound like a strange question to ask, but keep reading, as the reason we're asking will soon become clear. The size of a room will influence the objects you put in it - and, of course, how it is used. If your kitchen is large enough to accommodate a dining area, it's likely that you use that space to entertain guests and eat with the family. You probably have a lot of wall space too.

So, our recommendations will vary depending on the size of your kitchen, as follows:

Large Kitchen
When selecting wall stickers for your kitchen, ask yourself which areas are bereft of decoration. As we indicated a few moments ago, you have a lot more wall space to cover - and a clock, family portrait, or picture probably won't be big enough to make a difference. Kitchen wall stickers, on the other hand, can be purchased in a range of different sizes, meaning you'll be able to find one big enough to fill that all-important space.

Small Kitchen
Exactly the same rules apply here, but in reverse. The challenge here is to find a space that will be visible to you, your guests and other members of your family. The wall stickers for your kitchen will need to be adhered to a surface that is prominent, rather than an unlit alcove, or a space that is out of sight or rarely used.

Some popular locations for kitchen wall stickers are:
1. Above the hob/central cooking area
2. On the wall directly facing the doorway, so that people see them as they come in to the room
3. Directly above the doorframe: on the outside or inside (due to the limited space available in this case, quotations/expressions/lyrics might be your better choice)

Types of Kitchen Stickers

When searching our database for suitable stickers, remember that your kitchen is an extremely versatile space – which means you are not necessarily limited to a particular type of sticker. That said, you still need to decide whether to decorate the room using images or words – both of which have their advantages and disadvantages.

If you quite literally want to make a statement about your kitchen, wall stickers containing lyrics or quotations should be your first choice. If you decide to go down this route then it's more important than ever that you place your kitchen wall sticker in a position that's not only visible, but says something about the space it's been chosen for.

Run searches online through our database to find themes that will tie in with the look of your room, or tell people something about your personality.

If you're stuck for ideas, then think about what epitomises your kitchen - drink, laughter, friends and food are just a few examples of terms you could research. You'll then be able to review the suggestions and, hopefully, find something suitable.

They say that pictures can paint a thousand words. If you are looking for kitchen wall stickers that'll make a statement all on their own, then rest assured, our database is positively overflowing with pictures to choose from. Exactly the same thought process needs to be applied here as it would if you were researching a quote or song lyrics to put on your wall: you will need to find something that will integrate itself in to the room without visually/thematically jarring.

If you're struggling for ideas, here are a few suggestions to think about:
1. Landmarks. Have you ever been somewhere special - for your honeymoon, or on a special holiday? If placed in a tasteful location - and positioned in the right place - the skyline of a famous city could work well as the focal point of your kitchen.
2. Branches/Trees. In most cases, a kitchen opens out on to a garden. You could place the image of a tree - or even flowers – next to the door at the back of the room, immediately creating a connection between these two special spaces.
