Choosing a Kitchen Wallpaper for the Season
Is it time for new kitchen wallpaper?
There are lots of ways to know whether or not it's time for a change.
Take a long look at your kitchen walls and, if applicable, your old wall

your old wallpaper bubbling or buckling? Is it faded or full of grease
or food stains that won't come out no matter how hard you scrub? Before

is one of the busiest rooms in the house. From hurried breakfasts to
leisurely late-night snacks, the kitchen has a lot to stand up to.
Depending on the time of year and what’s cooking, the temperature and
humidity in your kitchen varies dramatically. High temperatures followed
by cooler ones, and varying degrees of humidity, should be kept in mind
when considering what materials your new kitchen wallpaper should be
made of. Consider too that splashing water, cleaning chemicals, grease,

Kitchen décor varies greatly from one home to another based on the needs of the individual family. With so many kitchen themes to choose from, deciding on just one can seem a bit daunting. Seasonal themes from autumn leaves to snowflakes to pale summer colors may compliment your kitchen well. Seasonal colors always look great in your kitchen whether you're baking holiday cookies or creating a masterful summer salad. Food-inspired designs are well disposed toward kitchens and cooking spaces without ever being dull.
Consider matching or contrasting your kitchen décor with your dining
room or an adjoining hallway to make your house flow seamlessly from one
room to another. Or try something daring that makes every room pop on its own.
Winter colors can keep a kitchen feeling cool, even if you've been cooking all day long. Cooling blues and greens set a relaxing tone and a welcoming atmosphere. Or think about a wall mural
that tells everyone that autumn is here – all year round. Seasonal
décor can be changed with the weather, or remain constant, so it's
always your favorite time of year! Prefer something rustic? Faux wood kitchen wallpapers are great for informal meals and country settings.
If patterned kitchen wallpaper on every wall seems like too much, consider painting an accent wall or paint accented by a themed border. You'll be amazed to see how many different borders and themes are available to help your kitchen look as unique as you are. From your chef-like demeanor to your love of coffee,

the places wallpaper borders can add a splash of color.
