Kitchen BacksplashTypically, the kitchen is where families spend most of their time, more than any other room in the house. Thus, it makes sense to create a kitchen that’s stylish and different from anything else you’ve seen before. You will be giving your family a place where they can eat, talk, and spend time together, as well as enjoy a unique setting that has both character and charm.

Display Your Cookbooks
Do you keep your cookbooks hidden away in a drawer somewhere or on a bookshelf in the living room? Rather, put them out for people to see when they walk into the kitchen. Place them on a shelf on one of the walls, or use them to create a decoration on top of your refrigerator. Add in a couple of cute bookends to hold everything in place and you will have created an instant décor items that’s also functional and practical.

Hang Some Kitchen Signs
If you want to hang a sign in your kitchen, you can choose from literally hundreds of designs. What you choose will depend on the theme and style you are going for.

  • If you’re trying to create an old retro kitchen, you might choose to hang a neon sign that says something like “Kitchen Open” or “Open 24 Hours.”
  • If you’re trying to create a country kitchen, you can choose signs with roosters or country sayings to give the décor that country charm you are looking for.
  • If you are creative, you might try to come up with your own sign with only a piece of wood and some paint. By creating a sign of your own, you can help ensure that your kitchen will be uniquely yours.

Use Recipes to Add Décor
Surprisingly, recipes actually make a pretty good wallpaper border. You can choose to either handwrite some of your favorite recipes or find pages in a cookbook or magazine. The pages will need to be sealed with a clear poly-acrylic in order to protect them. Then all you need to do is to paste them to the wall.

If you don’t like the wallpaper border idea, then make a wall of recipes near your cooking area. Depending on whether you want them to be legible or not, you can choose to create more of a collage effect with the recipes. By taking this a step further, you can create a collage by interspersing the recipes with different pictures of food to create a one-of-a-kind wallpaper.

Create a Backsplash with Some Hand-Painted Tiles
A great unique way to decorate your kitchen is by using your very own hand-painted tiles to create a backsplash. Ceramic tiles can easily be painted, and then you can use a sealer to preserve your handiwork. You might decide on themed pictures painted on random tiles, or perhaps you can have your kids get creative and paint some pictures for you. This way you’ll end up with a totally unique kitchen backsplash and you’ll also have added a family touch to the room as well.

Your kitchen should neither be boring, nor look the same as everyone else’s. There are plenty of items probably sitting in your kitchen right now that can be used to add personality to your kitchen. So get creative, and be sure to involve the whole family. Together you should all be able to come up with some more neat ideas for creating a unique décor in your kitchen.
