Why You Should Keep Framed Kitchen Art on Countertops

Do you know why framed art on a kitchen countertop makes perfect sense? It conceals unsightly outlets while still keeping them accessible!

I know… that’s the tiniest most insignificant problem in the world, but seeing outlets on kitchen backsplashes drives me bonkers for some reason.

Plus, art is just nice to look at while you’re prepping dinner for the 1,000th time, and it’s so inexpensive to change up anyway.

5 Free Oil Painting Kitchen Artwork Prints

It’s been way too long since I added to the Bless’er House Printable Library, but I stumbled upon these beautiful antique oil paintings in the Met Museum’s archives and knew they would work beautifully in this vintage style frame.

I’ve mentioned before that it’s so easy to find free art on public domain archives!

Since old picture frames are one of the easiest things to find secondhand, it’s one of the best decor items to buy at thrift stores.

You can just print the free art right from your printer (or for a few cents at Staples / Office Depot) and stick it right in your $3 thrift store frame.

Always keep in mind if you have a real oil painting, the kitchen is the worst place to hang it. Because of smoke and grease droplets in the air from cooking, it could severely damage original art pieces. So kitchen prints rather than real paintings are a much better option.

What Kitchen Artwork is Best to Display?

Gone are the days of needing to display food-specific art as the main subject matter in a kitchen. In fact, the less related the subject matter of your art, the more quirky and elevated your kitchen will feel!

Some kitchen artwork ideas:

  • Preserved handwritten recipes
  • Black and white travel photography
  • A framed quote in fun typography
  • Still life watercolors
  • An old vintage sign
  • Vintage painted plates and platters
  • An abstract collage in various mediums
  • An antique portrait painting
  • Animal/bird sketches
