Design Dread: What to Do With a Blank Kitchen Wall?

Deciding how to decorate a big blank wall can be one of the biggest DIY design challenges, especially if you are trying to stick to a budget. You need enough art to cover a large area, but it still has to look cohesive.

Not to worry! We have some great tips for decorating a blank kitchen wall. One of these ideas is something that my mom did in our kitchen when I was a kid. The decor is actually still up to this day, because it looks great! Try and guess which one it is, as you read these fun design tips for blank walls.

  1. Install decorative hooks into your kitchen wall and use them to hang pretty pots and pans, aprons, dish towels, and more.
  2. Love food magazines? Cut out your favorite pages and frame them using frames from the Dollar Store. Arrange them to make an inexpensive, food-themed gallery wall.
  3. Install a shelf and display your favorite cookbooks.
  4. Install a few shallow shelves and display an herb garden. You can also store cute grocery items here, like olive oil, fresh lemons, and sea salt.
  5. Install hanging baskets to store fresh fruit, vegetables, and bread.
  6. Or you can combine ideas 5 and 6 for a beautiful hanging basket herb garden, as shown below!
  7. Decorate your blank kitchen wall with thrifted vintage jello molds. The copper color makes for a cohesive design that really pops, and they are easy to hang.

Did you guess which kitchen wall decor idea is a favorite from my childhood? It's the jello molds! You might be surprised by the different shapes of jello molds you can find. My mom's collection includes various geometric shapes, a decorative bundt pan, a fish, and a lobster.

Yes, the lobster looks pretty weird. But we like it anyway.
