Are you also struggling when it comes to decorating your home, and in particular your kitchen walls? Have you scrolled through hundreds, even thousands of Pinterest mood boards, in the search for the perfect interior decorations?
We are not afraid to say, that people always tend to make the same mistake when it comes to decorating their home.
Trust us, we've been there too...many times!
You might start with planning and decorating the living room.
When in fact, the heart of the home is the kitchen!
This is where all the cool people end up at the party, where you get your coffee in the morning, and the place you boil that 4.00 am getting back from the club noodles.
Why the kitchen is the place to be:
- Cool people at the party
- 4.00 AM snack
The above timeline clearly shows that we should start by exploring and decorating our kitchen walls!
Imagine a kitchen with white walls and dusty shelves, no art on the walls whatsoever.
Would you get inspired for cooking your big Sunday feast?
We didn’t think so.
In our kitchen, in a (somewhat messy) fifties apartment in a quiet suburb to Stockholm, Sweden, we like it elegant yet fun. And we struggled a bit to find just that. So we solved the issue, by creating our own posters!
Choptable’s kitchen wall art
When it comes to the kitchen and the art you decorating the walls with, it’s most likely something food based that springs to your mind.
In our minds, it’s veggie based. That's why we decided our kitchen wall art, and to decorate it with, vegetables!
It might sound a bit corny and crazy but it actually does inspire us to do great things in the kitchen!
Obviously, we believe, that every kitchen should come with pre-installed Choptable kitchen posters.
But to also convince you, to consider our vegetable posters when you planning your kitchen wall art ideas, we would like to show you our collection of veggie cuts.
Kitchen posters fit for 2019
Who would have thought 2019 would be the year when more and more people realized we need to act on our planet needs before it’s too late.
Who could have predicted that people would realize that meat production, and further - the meat consumption, is a big factor in the global warming issue we are facing?
We need to start looking at our own consumption and food habits.
One obvious way to reduce your carbon footprint is to start eating more vegetable-based foods.
We hope that our kitchen posters can inspire even the biggest meat lover to at least try some of the delicious foods that can be made from vegetables alone.
One step might be to consider your kitchen art, and kitchen decor, to become inspired by vegetables!
Why not hanging a Cuts of Aubergine poster on the kitchen wall instead of a cut of beef?
Invest in your kitchen art
In 2017 the website Houzz.com completed an in-house study on kitchen trends.
It makes for a very interesting read as there were more than 2 700 of their website users participating in the survey.
How much do they spend, on what do they spend, and how does it affect them?
Are we right when we think people aren't investing as much as they should in their kitchen art?
“The 2017 U.S. Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, from a research team led by Nino Sitchinava, Houzz’s principal economist, reveals that homeowners updating their kitchens prioritize changing out countertops, backsplashes and sinks. A majority of kitchen renovators are also choosing a more open feel for this room.“
The study shows that people do in fact spend time and energy on the wall finish in, for example, their kitchen.
However, the wall finish is not the same as wall decorations! A nice wall finish is only halfway.
You need to draw attention to that nicely finished wall, otherwise, you might as well not spend so much money on it if no one is looking that way!
Take a look at our kitchen wall art ideas below if you find yourself stuck on ideas!
Trends according to Houzz
As mentioned above, we went through this massive websites in-house study that was made during 2017. All in an attempt to try and figure out how people think when it comes to their kitchen walls and their decor needs.
It might only be a few years ago, but interior design trends are ever so changing, and quite a lot has happened since the study took place.
The interior website recently listed 32 trends to look out for in 2019. Redecorating or renovating your kitchen and home has probably never been as exciting as it is today.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to technology, availability, and inspiration.
The first bullet point in the featured list of trends, is regarding the kitchen. The article mentions a full-tile backsplash feature wall! Done right, this can be a beautiful piece of kitchen art, incorporated in your wall.
Tiling in the kitchen, and especially over the worktop, has been a popular method for years and years.
However, recently, the trends are leaning towards tiling the whole wall, from floor to roof. Or at least, from countertop to the roof. Colorful and elegant mosaic or tiles create a stunning base for any kitchen.
This way, the wall becomes a natural focal point, that draws the attention to the heart of the kitchen.
And the good thing is, you don’t even have to be that bold! If you don’t feel like going all in with a Moroccan style tiling, you can easily create something stunning with a one-colored, non-patterned, elegant tile.
Wood, wood and more wood…
One of the clear trends in Houzz’s list of kitchen trends in 2019, is the usage of wood.
Wood is a natural object to decorate your kitchen walls with. If done correctly, it’s also environmentally friendly material.
It gives the room loads of character as it’s a living material, warmth and a great base to combine several materials.
Personalize your kitchen walls
It’s safe to say that people in 2019, now more than ever, does not shy away from standing out.
With a never-ending supply of kitchen interior, it has become easier to show who you are, and what you stand for, when decorating your home.
So if you could express who you are, so should your kitchen!
It’s easy to personalize your kitchen wall art, and it’s something that is becoming a growing trend.
We have access to worldwide supply, so we can, as consumers, choose to buy things that our neighbors don’t have already!
Even if you aren’t a vegetarian or a vegan, you might want to dress your kitchen walls in vegetable colors!
Our contribution to decorating your kitchen walls
When we planned our city apartment, we wanted to make the kitchen the hub for our common activities.
Drawing, cooking, reading and maybe even singing. We wanted all of this to be kitchen-based, the living room can be for relaxing, the bedroom should be for sleeping.
Our kitchen, and especially our kitchen walls, are something that normally doesn’t get much of our attention.
But recently you might have discovered more and more butchers cuts of meat posters popping up in your friends and families houses.
This is exactly what happened to us.
When trying to cut down on the meat consumption, and going fully vegetable based, we found this trend distressing.
However, we loved the design and the look of the posters (set aside the instructions on cutting up animals).
Cuts of Aubergine poster
At this point, the Cuts of Aubergine kitchen poster was born. There was a long time between idea to product.
But here we are, and you can, of course, buy your own poster in our webshop.
However, we didn’t want to stop with only Aubergine posters hanging of our walls, so we created a full range of our Cuts of Vegetables.
These posters, ideal for hanging in your kitchen (but of course feel free to hang it wherever you feel), includes Cuts of Broccoli, Cuts of Onion, Cuts of Carrot and Cuts of Potato.
