7. A Greenery Wall

To have an area in your kitchen dedicated to plants and greenery is not just a fabulous thing to do but also essential. And when you have a large sized kitchen, it’s like a bonus because now you have some interesting ideas to bring greenery to your walls. From wall planters to designer succulents and herb pouches, there is a good deal of wall planting ideas you can consider.

If you don’t want to use more of expensive decorations, even placing a bunch of foliage in wall mounted mesh baskets is a great alternative. If you have a window in your kitchen which leads to a garden or tree area, you can also grow a tree outside while extending some of its branches in your kitchen via the window. 


The main factor in narrow kitchen’s walls is that, it leaves no space for decoration in the lower wall areas. Most of the times, only the upper area of the wall is available for decorations, while the bottom portions have been utilized in cabinetry.

If you have this upper wall space free of obligations to any further storage, do consider some beautiful wallpaper. Else or otherwise, following are some eye-catching wall decorations which will also help you repurpose your daily items as display-ful decorations. 

8. Pegboard Wall

A kitchen includes so many little-little accessories that something is always lost. Mostly when it is needed. Be it a knife or a rolling pin, something always gets placed in a drawer or a cabinet where it is not meant to be.

So, when talking of wall decoration for a kitchen, an intelligent thing to do is to combine decoration and storage together, especially for kitchens spanning a narrower area.

For a small sized kitchen like this, think of a wall covered in a pegboard. While you will use some peg hooks for hanging your everyday kitchen utilities, you can use some of the remaining hooks for decorative lanterns and danglers.

If you don’t want to cover the entire wall in pegboard style, do think of a smaller sized pegboard for displaying things like knives, cups and bottle openers.

9. Wire Grid Panel

Much like a pegboard wall, a wire grid panel also offers the same storage-cum-display function for smaller kitchens. Think of a mesh style wire panel on the wall above your kitchen sink or on an empty wall.

Some of these grid panels also contain protruding wire baskets for keeping lightweight items. Depending on your budget and kitchen style, you can select from different kinds of materials for the grid including rose gold wire, copper wire, iron wire etc. 

10. Shelved Pot Rack with Hooks

Showcase your collection of copper pots and saucepans while organizing them in order with the help of a wall rack. Many such racks feature shelves for keeping the utensils intact on the wall hanging.

While choosing a rack, consider the one which comes with additional hooks for suspending any lightweight pans or mugs you have. To make it look extraordinary, play with the colour choices or simply paint the rack in a paint matching your kitchen décor 

In a Wrap-up

If you have a knack of mixing, matching and personalizing, each of these ten ideas is as good for walls in any or every kitchen. The only thing to note is, to avoid extremes.

That is, make sure that if you have a small kitchen, then you don’t make it overwhelming by filling too much on the walls. On the other hand, if you have a large sized kitchen, its better not to waste the wall space by keeping it plain. Either way, happy kitchen!
