From the Albany Fusion Wallpaper Collection
Kitchens are the hub of the home and often the centre of family life, as we create open-plan cooking and dining areas. These new rooms are perfect for adding feature walls - something fun and quirky which the whole family will enjoy. And while a new kitchen is expensive, a featurewall can be an inexpensive refresh to any home.
Tile effect wallpapers have a come a long way and now are available in a range of beautiful colours and effects. New kitchens are expensive and using a tile wallpaper can be a fraction of the cost of the real thing but also allows you the flexablity to change your colour scheme more often.
Have fun, and embrace something the whole family will enjoy. As long as your room is well ventilated, there is no problem using wallpaper in a kitchen, just not directly near the oven or sink and it will be fine. So be a little adventurous and try something fun.
The current trend for retro design in fashion and interiors, works particularly well in the kitchen, allowing you to co-ordinate your bake-ware, mugs, tea towels etc with your wallpaper. Here we have selected a range of sunny yellow retro papers but aqua, teal and orange all work well too.
Kitchen do not have to be girly spaces, smart stripes are always easy to use - and a perfect compromise, and are an easy way to add dark colour without overpowering a small space. They are great for creating atmosphere and look good with black, granite and dark surfaces and painted walls.
