Would you ever...

Wallpaper your kitchen?

I don't think I would...too hard to clean. This is pretty though.

My kitchen is wallpapered now. It's the original from when the house was built in the early 1970s. You'd be hard-pressed to tell. I'd love to keep it, but it's not in the best shape.

I doubt that I'll re-paper due to the difficulty cleaning it. And I want a Moroccan tile backsplash which will be pattern enough.

I probably wouldn't, but if I moved somewhere and it had been, and it looked good, I;d def keep it!

I guess it would depend... not anywhere too close to the sink or stove. My parents have their eat-in portion of the kitchen wallpapered, and they haven't had any problems ever... I think it's been up for at least 10 years too...

That kitchen above is gorgeous though!

If I found the right paper, I would. My mom no longer has paper in her kitchen but at one time had a Ralph Lauren paisley paper in there and it made it feel so warm & cozy.

Totally would but the hubby totally wouldn't got for it... wonder how that conversation would play out?

Jenica said...

Yes, but it would have to be the right one. I love that picture and the way the room feels so warm.

I think I would wallpaper a kitchen before I would put a fancy crystal chandelier in there...just too hard to clean if you really like to cook. Looks pretty though.

While I love the look of it in this photo, I wouldn't do it. We had wallpaper in the kitchen of our old house before we remodeled and it was coming off and stained. I prefer paint.

I say yes..yes..yes. If I knew I were to stay in a home for longer than a few years, I'd do it in a minute. This example is so stunning.

I love it when you hear a Realtor say that wallpaper is out of date. From the 80's you betcha from the 21st century no way!

Sending you much holiday cheer!!

An accent wall might be fun! I wouldn't recommend wallpaper around the sink or stove though. Althought some wallpaper vender are making "wallpaper" out of natural stone!

Yes, in a second! One because I LOVE wallpaper, and two, because I think the kitchen is the prettiest room in my house and what pretty rooms isn't complete without wallpaper?? :)

I love wallpaper and am so glad it is coming around again. My kitchen still has a border from the 90's that is perfect!

I'm DYING to wallpaper. That kitchen is gorg. White cabinets and a warm wallpaper. Just screams for my morning coffee and blog stalking. Maybe a dining room or powder bath to stay away from food stains.

Carissa @ the Fabulous Design File said...

Yes! I would wallpaper EVERY room if I could!

my favorite and my best said...

Anne-Marie @ 10 Rooms said...

YES! This feels more like a dining room, with the chandelier and beautiful papered walls, love it.
