It’s said that the kitchen is the heart of a home and if yours is a place where good food is shared with good company, this is certainly true.
As a nation, we are spending more time in the kitchen, eating, talking and relaxing with friends and family - as well as creating the meals that fuel our lives. The farmhouse kitchen, (where people can congregate to talk, drink and snack while dinner is prepared and then sit down together to eat), is increasingly popular while even tiny kitchens are making space for bistro style table and chairs. Regardless of whether or not you eat in your kitchen, it is without a doubt somewhere that you’ll be spending a good chunk of your home-life, making it the perfect place to hang the perfect artwork.
Art in the kitchen can transform this room from a purely functional, to an aesthetic and recreational area and it also has the ability to make a small space seem much larger or vice versa if placed poorly, creating clutter!
Just as with any other room in the house, the ‘rules’ about art in the kitchen are important to get right if you want to make the most of the space and your beloved art pieces.
