28 Above the Kitchen Cabinet Decor Ideas
Above the kitchen cabinet decor ideas are frequently blamed for making your kitchen feel crowded and outdated. Don’t be fooled by this because it may be a wonderful area to display home decor, but it does need some imagination! Forget everything you know about above the kitchen cabinet decor and take a look at these 28 beautiful concepts.
I believe that over the years, kitchen decor ideas have gotten a negative reputation. They almost seem like a 1990s fad that hasn’t gone away yet. From dusty waxed fruit, old faux plants, and dreary decorative items it’s no wonder people seem to be lost when decorating these awkward areas.
For years, I was a firm believer it’s just better to leave the space above your kitchen cabinets empty since nothing ever seemed to work. That was until I started to really research some amazing ways to add decor that would elevate your kitchen’s style, not overwhelm it!
Check out some of these brilliant & sophisticated above the kitchen cabinet decor ideas you might want to consider!
- Add a backsplash to the ceiling. Who says it need to be physical decor? By bringing your backsplash all the way to the ceiling you are giving the illusion your kitchen is much bigger.
- Lean & layer art. Color, depth, and flexibility are all features that leaning art can offer. It’s up to you to decide what kind of atmosphere you want to create in your home by the art you decide to display. More color? Vintage vibes? Or today’s style?
- Use repeating patterns. We often feel we need to add eclectic pieces above the kitchen cabinets which can feel messy. Why not use a repeating pattern of decorative items in a row for seamless balance? Like all the same plates alternated with the same faux plant in a repeating pattern across the top for example.
- Use bins. Woven, metal, wood, whatever bin works with your home style, use them above the kitchen cabinets. They’re bulky, rich in textures, and provide a lot of warmth to a dark space.
