No matter what decorating theme you use for your kitchen, metal art can add the perfect touch of cutting edge style. Because there’s such a wide variety of metal art pieces from which to choose, you’ll have no problem finding one or two pieces that add just the decorative effect you are looking for. Whether you’ve designed your kitchen with sleek contemporary details or prefer a more rustic country theme, kitchen wall art made from metal can be the perfect decorating accessory for your kitchen. Here are a few decorating ideas you can use to incorporate metal art into your kitchen theme.
Rustic Kitchen Decor
Whether you’ve decorated your kitchen in a rustic Southwestern style or prefer a Tuscan style of decorating, wall art can really add to the overall effect. To add to the beauty of a Southwestern theme, try using metal art with a chili pepper or rustic pottery theme. In a Tuscan styled kitchen, pieces featuring a wine or grape motif can work quite well. However, when selecting kitchen wall art, don’t limit yourself to just pieces that have a food theme. By using a little bit of thought and creativity, you’ll be able to use any art piece that appeals to you. In fact, you might just find yourself designing your entire kitchen around one really great piece of art.
If your kitchen is decorated in a country style, you’ll find plenty of metal wall art that will blend in beautifully. Art pieces that feature barnyard animals, fruits or vegetables always work well. You could also decorate your country kitchen with a floral theme. For example, a large metal art sculpture depicting a beautiful sunflower hung on the wall behind the table could really brighten up your entire kitchen. You could also use one or more metal wall panels or grilles in the kitchen to add a lot of visual interest and design.
Sleek Contemporary Kitchens
Metal art can also be used quite effectively when decorating a sleek contemporary-styled kitchen. Try hanging a large piece of abstract metal art on the largest kitchen wall, to create a striking visual focal point within the room. You could also decorate a smaller wall with a collection of smaller pieces. When choosing contemporary art pieces for the kitchen, it can be helpful to take your cue from the other metallic surfaces in the room. For example, if your kitchen features a lot of stainless steel, then art pieces made from stainless steel or other light-colored metals can work well. Of course, black and white pieces always work extremely well as part of a room’s contemporary design.
If your kitchen resembles a professional chef’s kitchen, you’ll probably want to stick to sleek stainless steel or black painted metal pieces, in keeping with the colors that are commonly used in professional kitchens. Art pieces that depict food or beverages always work well in the kitchen. However, you could also decorate your professionally designed kitchen with metal art pieces depicting a city skyline, or another area of the country that personifies your particular style of cooking.
