Acrylic Glass Prints
Art? In the kitchen? Fine artworks and plumes of steam from cooking can coexist peacefully if you follow a few general rules.
Smoke, steam, splashes of water or oil - cooking can get chaotic. That's why your kitchen pictures shouldn't hang directly above the stove or sink. Position them in a protected place at a sufficient distance from these danger zones.
While it is true that our artworks can be face-mounted on acrylic glass, they are still museum-quality pieces intended for display, and not for off-roading. At a reasonable remove from things that could cause grime or warping, the acrylic glass will protect your kitchen artwork from everyday damage and contamination. Cleaning your acrylic-mounted print is quick and easy. Simply wipe your kitchen picture with a dry microfiber cloth - no cleaning products necessary!
Frameless acrylic prints have a modern and minimalist look. While they are the perfect complement to a minimalist kitchen decor, they're also extremely adaptable.
Would you like a frame for your kitchen picture? Check out our framed wall art for more framing ideas! Our curators and artists work together to individually select the top-quality frame that best suits the motif.
Our acrylic glass pictures are backed with a durable aluminum composite. There is a wall-mount on the backing, meaning you can hang it straightaway! Our acrylic glass artworks are a longer-lasting and higher-quality alternative to kitchen posters or enamel wall art. They are also the very definition of luminosity. Compared to canvas prints, acrylic glass art is intensely colorful.
Colors and Themes
For practical reasons, kitchen decor is usually pretty basic. Kitchen artworks allow you to highlight certain spaces, and bring flashes of color to otherwise pragmatically outfitted walls.
One option is James Wojcik, whose photographs are shaped by his humor and absurdist storytelling. His pictures seamlessly put food alongside glamorous accessories, giving the impression that they are naturally connected.
Colorful art goes great in the kitchen! Stimulate your appetite with the unusual compositions of Catherine Losing. She stages food in unconventional ways, for example a pair of women's legs between orange boxes.
Our collection of wildlife and animal photography features animals in colorful settings. Catherine Ledner's adorable critters are an obvious favorite. Since they are smaller prints, they go great in hanging arrangements, on the fridge, or in those tight spaces. Pat Swain's brilliant flamingoes set against shocking botanical green backgrounds will fill your kitchen with a jungle vibe!
There is no one type of art more appropriate for your kitchen wall decor than Pop Art. Our selection contains works that are classic and tasteful, while also being playful and quirky.
Freddy Reitz's work reminds us of classics by Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol. Our collection of Marilyn Monroe portraits does something most unexpected, bringing this great icon, with her legendary charisma and charm, right into your kitchen!
The Right Artwork for Your Kitchen
Wood, stainless steel, granite, and marble are some of the more common kitchen materials. These define the style and atmosphere of the room, which is important to keep in mind when decorating.
A wood decor scheme radiates a warm and natural atmosphere. Try to stick with this natural feeling, and complement your kitchen with our selection of nature art.
Luxurious kitchen surfaces like granite or marble find a stylish counterpart in abstract photography.
Modern kitchens are characterised by discreet colors and straight lines. This gives you a lot of creative freedom, because in a relatively untouched space, colorful decor works just as well as black and white art.
Pictures of abandoned buildings represent an exciting break in conventional style choices. Lynne Collins stages still lifes in unkempt interiors, while Werner Pawlok reveals the technicolor charm behind the doors of homes and formerly public buildings in Cuba.
Our smallest format, the ART NOW collection, can easily be arranged into exciting art constellations. You can always add to them later with more of our collectible miniatures, or by adding family photos, mementos, or whatever else. The artworks in this collection arrive with built-in magnets, a sawtooth hanger, and a stand, making them extremely versatile.
Check out our art hanging ideas about how and where to hang your art. Our curators have put together some expert advice on hanging arrangements, and how to use line, space, and color to your advantage. While hanging in a row emphasizes a clear style, a salon-style gallery wall combines many works at once to create a new, individual work of art.
Where to Place Your Kitchen Art
Of course, you don’t just want to keep your kitchen artworks safe from steaming cooking pots - you also want to display them as effectively as possible. How do you find the right place for your kitchen picture?
First of all, the shape of the room is critical. Do you have an open kitchen that merges into the living and dining area? If so, we recommend you keep an eye on the furnishing concept in the kitchen and the connected room. Try to make your kitchen art choices consistent with the overall environment. Making sure there’s harmony between decor choices in connecting rooms will actually change your impression of the space. When the decor is aligned, you feel that the rooms are more of a cohesive, single space. This space is suddenly more open, less tense and broken up, and it is thus experienced as larger than it is.
In order to achieve this kind of harmony, your kitchen and dining room decor should form a single unit in terms of color. Another option is to try to unite the two rooms with a single theme, rather than a single color scheme. Rather than altering the atmosphere and spatial feeling of your rooms, this gives them a kind of seamless narrative continuity.
Is the kitchen a separate room? Then you are more free in your kitchen design, as you can focus entirely on your kitchen decor. Our curated artworks will help you create a modern vibe in your kitchen, but can also be used to create a romantic, country house atmosphere available in our line of modern farmhouse and country style art.
Do you have a combined kitchen and living room? Position your pictures near the dining table, giving you something to look at when seated. Try to focus on and use free wall surfaces. We recommend hanging large format art on open wall spaces to make sure it has its full effect without distractions. Depending on the theme, a large artwork can influence the entire atmosphere of the room!
