Walls Are Important Part of Kitchen Design

The kitchen walls can create an artistic backdrop and set the tone for your kitchen design. The walls also can help enhance the new style of kitchen cabinets.

Wallpaper Can Revamp Kitchen Design

New wallpaper is one popular option for revamping your walls during a cabinet refacing project. This project involves stripping existing wallpaper, preparing the walls and hanging the new wallpaper. When paired with newly refaced kitchen cabinets, the result can be dramatic. Among the popular styles are:
  • Floral patterns -- to blend with traditional kitchen cabinet styles.
  • Striped patterns, both in bold stripes or subtle tone on tone stripes.
  • A combination of floral and stripes -- for an eclectic kitchen design.
  • Earth toned colors and patterns.

Spruce Up Kitchen Design With New Window Treatments

The kitchen windows also play an important role in your kitchen design. Look for colorful valances or Roman shades to tie into your color scheme and coordinate with your cabinet refacing styles. When debating what style to buy, consider:
  • How much privacy you need on each window.
  • Whether the window treatment should open or be stationary.
  • How much light to block.
  • Sun and shade patterns.

Evaluate Overall Kitchen Design

Before starting a cabinet refacing project or buying wall or window treatments, remember to look at your overall kitchen design. Look for styles, colors and textures that blend together and create an inviting space. This way the entire kitchen design will flow well together.
