My lonely kitchen wall.
vixynkittyFebruary 25, 2013
I'm reposting my wall because I only had 5 comments on my original post. Some said to put artwork which I'm considering. One person said a mirror but I'm not sure it would look right in the kitchen. Another person said a bakers rack for storage but I have a lot of storage, and feel that it would stick out when people are walking by. I considered a pub set but we already have a kitchen set and an island with pub chairs. I love the chalkboards and bulletin boards but I think that may look odd also. Just looking for additional ideas! Thank you in advance!!

I would put a long rod iron table with glass on top. Get a buffet lamp since you have a plug. Hang a picture or mirror not too high. Then you can put family pictures on table .

try a wall decal some of them look amazing. you can get black and white or coloured ones and they just stick on and pull of sort of like a clear vinyl finish so it is easy to remove if you are unhappy with it look up wall decals on google

Here are a few suggestions - a coffee bar http://pinterest.com/pin/234750199298904199/
or maybe a desk where you could pay bills or use your computer
how about a bookcase where you can keep your cook books and/or collectibles and if you don't collect anything , well now you have an excuse to start!

I like grandmalucy12's idea some others might be a large iron wall art to match your ceiling light, a very large wall canvas of something that makes you smile (you can buy these pretty cheap), create a wall of pictures all with similar or same frames with bright and colorful food or kitchen items, a wall of family photos, a beautiful tall thin plant and some crocks, decor alongside it, a large but thin bookcase that could hold cookbooks, kitchen decor, candles, kids books to read at the table, colorful plates etc etc etc
The one thing I don't think you should do with whatever you chose is to go to small, it will get lost and not make any statement at all.

Your room seems to have a country vibe. I would suggest a large vintage sign of some kind, with a vintage bench beneath with cushion seat in a fun fabric to bring some color, pattern and style into the room. You could also consider a console type cabinet, as i did here in my own eating area, with a vintage fabric above. the wall is large, so a huge vintage quilt would also work really well, hung as art. Have Fun!

Since you have plenty of storage and are leaning towards the idea of art....I think a stone wall with a fireplace would be stunning!!! This is a popular look in a lot of restaurants. Of course, I'm not sure if that's practical where you live, but it's a beautiful look!!! I'll see if I can find you a picture.

I found a couple examples of fireplaces in kitchens with stone walls:

Something this this painted barn door would be cool. It would add a nice punch of color and definitely a cool factor!

You may even have room for a small sitting area around the fireplace like in the above picture.
Whatever you decided to do, have fun with it and enjoy the process!

I think I would warm up the space by adding a couple of comfy chairs to sit in and drink coffee with a book shelf or something to put stuff on...
