Why choose a fruit-themed wallpaper for the kitchen?
One of the fastest ways to turn around the look of any room is by using wallpaper. It allows you to quickly transform the look of a huge space which can then serve as the backdrop for the rest of your renovation project.
Modern wallpapers allow you to quickly apply the new look, and with peel-and-stick varieties, you can often unpeel the wallpaper as easily as you put it up - perfect for renters, for example.
You can and should choose a theme for your kitchen. Choosing a theme helps you focus your design efforts, making it easier to coordinate colors and decor items. When it comes to the kitchen, a food-related theme often makes a good choice. You can go with a wine-themed kitchen, coffee as a theme or fruit!
Fruit is a great topic to work. It inspires a fresh, colorful and healthy vibe that works very well in most kitchens.
Tips for choosing the perfect fruit wallpaper for your kitchen
How to get the best effect from a fruit-themed wallpaper? Here are a few ideas.
1. One wall or more?
You don't need to cover all four (or three) walls. You could - but in many cases that could be too overwhelming. Focusing on a single accent wall is a great way to use bold large realistic prints of fruit.
2. Be careful with pattern size
As you'll see in the examples below, fruit patterns can come in a variety of sizes. Many wallpaper designers offer huge prints with high-quality photographs of fresh fruit. These can definitely be a focal point in the room - but make sure this is the effect you're after. Otherwise, a small repetitive fruit pattern might be a better idea.
3. Fruit in general - or a specific type of fruit?
This is something you should consider early on. You may want to create a lemon-themed kitchen or an apple-themed one. And that's fine. Or you could go with fruit as a general theme where your wallpaper will show a bowl of fresh fruit and decor items will complement that with a variety of specific types.
4. Keep your color scheme in mind
Fruit often have gorgeous and intense colors. That's part of their appeal as a design motif. This is where you need to keep your overall color scheme in mind and see whether an all-out fruit salad effect is what you're after, or maybe you should limit yourself to fruit of particular colors and shades.
