Pictures on the wall for the kitchen
The paintings are able to radically transform the room and emphasize in the design the concreteness of his stylistics. The room will have a finished look in the event that the most diverse decor will be used in its design. This is especially true of the wall decoration, and this is obvious, because the walls are the first thing you notice when entering any room. And the kitchen is not an exception, and therefore the design should look not only beautiful, but also modern in style. This design can be a picture, but what kind of theme is better to decorate the kitchen walls?
Before you begin to decorate the kitchen wall space, you need to decide on the key points that relate to the interior in this room as a whole. In this case, the paintings should be a special addition, and at the same time, a single whole with the surrounding situation.
To achieve this, you should decide on the following parameters:
- Take into account the specifics of the style, taken as the basis for choosing the basic design of the kitchen room.
- What material is chosen for finishing - what color and what texture.
- How the furniture is designed: how intense the color is, what material it is made from, what decorative inserts are in it, what kind of fittings are used and the like.
- With the presence of free space
- You need to think in advance where the paintings will be most appropriate.
- With accents
- The picture can be the accent that will emphasize this or that zone.
After analyzing all these components, it will be possible to choose the most appropriate and appropriate decor.
About types of paintings
In this interior, it would be appropriate to use paintings of only a certain subject, to which can be attributed:
- floral or fruit theme;
- paintings with still lifes;
- any portrait;
- something from the field of abstractionism.
Floristry and fruit
Probably, it is clear to everyone that for the kitchen it is simply impossible to find a more suitable subject than the image of certain fruits. The most frequent type of images on the kitchen walls are torn fruits, already washed under a water jet and beautifully laid on a tray.Although sometimes you can see the kitchen, on one of the walls of which is depicted an orchard or, for example, melon.
Whatever the image, it is, above all, chosen for a real kitchen set, because everything must be in harmony in colors and on the subject. So, for the kitchen in the yellow, orange, green or salad tones of the facades, suitable pictures with the image of apples, oranges, lemons and other fruits of exotic origin.
If the interior is made in calmer shades, then it is better to choose a berry theme such as strawberries, raspberries, cherries or blueberries. Such paintings can favorably decorate the kitchen with furniture dairy or beige hue.
Directly about the image
As for the image in the pictures for the kitchen of flowers, one can say with certainty: roses are always the right decision, such an image will decorate not only the classic interior, but also any modern one. Although, if the kitchen is made in the style of "country", it is better to give preference to daisies, cornflowers, poppies and other field plants. Provence style belongs to the same category, but lavender is preferable for it.
The “modern” style is best suited for paintings with the image of orchids, and this can be either a separate picture, or the addition of furniture facades or an apron zone.
About still life
If the owner of the kitchen is a conservative person, then he will appreciate the classic cuisine and restraint in its design. Bright colors, as well as bright flowers here will become an overkill, which means that the best choice is still lifes, that is, fruits in a basket, flowers in a vase, and so on. The images should guess the compatibility of some part of nature with the kitchen, and most often it looks like fruits or products in dishes or just on the kitchen table.
The most appreciated paintings for kitchens, painted in oil. This decor will always attract the eye with its elegance and high prices in the interior of a modern classic-style kitchen.
About photos and portraits
Doubt the relevance in the kitchen of a particular picture - hang a portrait. Family photos have a place everywhere, including on the kitchen wall. A great solution would be a collage of your family photos, which will include images of all members of your family, captured in different periods of life, located in the dining area of the kitchen.
You can, of course, just take a family photo and hang it up - this is an option, but the same photo would be a much better option, but entrusted to the experienced hands of designers - they will refine it, decorate it beautifully and put it in the right place, and you will only have to admire the image itself the style it gives your kitchen.
For comrades who are not inclined to hanging portraits of relatives, we can advise another version of the portraits - strangers, that is, portraits of works by prominent artists (the same “girl with peaches” and stuff like that) or from more generalized themes (“a gypsy bringing happiness").
There are individuals who all these paintings, even family ones, even though the brushes of famous artists, seem somehow banal and somehow “lagging”. For them, you can advise some of the modern art - it may be, for example, abstract images that fit into the interior of the kitchen with their style and colors. Such pictures usually look like a geometric pattern, some kind of frilly ornament, an explosion of colors and the like.
The most appropriate abstraction will be in a modern interior.It will decorate with itself the style of "modern", "high-tech", "minimalism", "fusion" and some others. Although for the classic style you can pick up beautiful modern options.
About types of framing
No less important than the selection of the picture on the kitchen wall on a specific theme, is a worthy frame of this picture itself, that is, the frame. On sale today, the framework has an incredible variety, but still they are divided into certain basic areas.
Simply simple - the picture in the kitchen hangs without any frame at all. And this is today a fairly common version of the design of the kitchen wall. Here it is only important to observe certain parameters of the canvas itself - it should be voluminous and stretched over the frame of the model, while posters are not always appropriate. Most often, such a technique (without frames) is used as a single decorative composition. These are, first of all, modular products, in which the frame would only spoil everything, because the integrity of the whole picture in this case would be broken.
About laconic minimalism
Another design option for the frame is the simplest frames with the design of achromatic tones: black, white and gray.Such a technique makes it possible to focus only on the photo, and not on its frame, and will be ideal for the “high-tech” style, which prefers these colors and the directness of the forms.
But “minimalism” welcomes the restraint of the framework - a style that can be called universal and suitable both in the modern setting and for the classics.
The pretentiousness of the elements
For some stylistic areas of kitchen design, the most appropriate framing will be framing. These are all kinds of frames, decorated with curls and volumetric inserts or decor in the form of rhinestones or stones. Most of all, the complexity of the model fits the classic design or the blending of “classics” with “modern”, to which, for example, the “art deco” style belongs.
Although in principle, such a framework in the kitchen is not the place, and this is understandable - after all, the relief of their surface is not intended for greasy kitchen dirt, and this will become a big problem in this case. Try to clean this surface, and it should not remain dirty either, so it turns out that the complex framework is not for the kitchen.
A bit of originality
An additional decoration of the kitchen picture can be decorating the frame with your own hands.This can be done in different ways, and the simplest solution can be the creation of a wooden frame. The frame can be painted or cleaned with sandpaper, or you can use an additional craquelure.
Another option is to apply to the compilation of the application. Here the material can be from anything, for example, it can be beads from scattered beads or shells brought from the sea. And taking into account the specifics of the finished premises, such “materials” as cereals, dried fruits, noodles and so on can also be used.
How to place
It is not enough to choose the subject and design of each of the paintings that you have selected for your kitchen - you need to be able to arrange each one in its place. It is believed that the best pictures to allocate a place in front of the headset or decorate in this way the dining area. It should also be noted that it is better to hang the big picture separately, and with the help of small ones, try to create some kind of common composition.
Such modular compositions with an image divided into elements, each of which is an independent picture, look very original.
Be that as it may, but ultimately only the owners decide what and where they will hang in their kitchen, and there are no particularly strict rules here, the rule, as always, is only one thing - adherence to the basic principles of design.
