When I ask people if they like wallpaper, the answer is either a resounding yes or an emphatic no. I’ve yet to find anyone who feels lukewarm when it comes to the subject of papering the walls of their home. Designers are predicting a growing trend back to wallpapered walls and today I’m sharing examples of kitchen wallpaper to see what Town and Country Living readers think.
A soft, patterned wallpaper lines the walls of this neutral kitchen. Far from boring, fun geometric fabrics grace the chairs and bar stools. This is a wallpaper I could live with.
Another soft wallpaper pattern is seen in this traditional kitchen with custom cabinetry.
If you like a bolder look, you might enjoy this bold graphic pattern in a white kitchen. The floor tile reminds me of mine, except my kitchen floor is green.
A contemporary-style kitchen makes great use of pattern. Thin stripes on the range hood mimic the lines of the cabinet doors. Circles add softness on the kitchen wallpaper and a fun touch of blue colors the ceiling.
Soft yellow wallpaper covers the walls of this shabby chic kitchen with its rustic pendant lighting.
Contemporary, leafy wallpaper meets traditional styling in this pretty kitchen. The kitchen wallpaper is relegated to the entry area, which is a great option if you don’t want to feel overwhelmed by pattern.
Calling all blue-lovers! The patterned kitchen wallpaper is toned down with lots of white trim and a mostly-solid blue floor. What do you think of the geometric floor border?

Another way to add wallpaper to any room without making a huge commitment is to line one wall with a soft pattern, like this Nordic-style kitchen. It contains enough colors that you can swap out accessories and still have them match.
Neutral-toned wallpapers always look great with wood trim, as evidenced in this Victorian kitchen.
Finally, consider adding wallpaper to the kitchen ceiling, or just a portion of it. You’ll satisfy your love for wallpaper without having to do a lot of work.
What do you think? Are you a fan of wallpaper and would you ever add it to your kitchen? I wallpapered our kitchen with a grapevine pattern shortly after we moved in, but eventually removed it and replaced it with bead board and paint. But I still enjoy a pretty wallpaper!
