FINE ART IN THE KITCHEN

FINE ART IN THE KITCHEN

Over the last years, kitchens have become the heart of the home. A place where family members dine and spend time together and where guests and friends are welcomed and entertained. A kitchen is now perceived as a living space rather than a working room where just a meal is prepared; they have evolved from sequestered spaces to open, inviting rooms. This simple shift has given designers and interior decorators much more freedom to incorporate fun elements into a kitchen, including fine art.

While natural stones like marble and granite have become a staple in kitchen design, adding value and beauty to the room, they are somehow considered utilitarian. Incorporating pieces of fine art into your kitchen enhances the value of natural stones and enriches the experience in the kitchen, allowing for much more creativity, diversity, and style.

The beauty of fine art is that it can either draw attention to your choice of natural stone or work as a complement to enhance their beauty. When working on a limited budget, a staple piece of art can be such an attention grabber that it can make up for the fact of not having cliché elements like stainless steel appliances.

Selecting a painting for your kitchen says that you not only understand the kitchen concept but that you embrace it. But it might make you wonder what art style works in a kitchen?

There is no right or wrong answer here. It all depends on your aesthetic, art collection, or feeling you want to evoke. To start, try taking a painting from somewhere else in the house and hanging it in the kitchen to see how the ambiance changes. Anything works from colorful pieces to more traditional still life or something completely unexpected like an abstract or a portrait.
