Very small apartment by the beach; kitchen vs Entry

chuckward5033July 1, 2013
As soon as you open the front door this is what you see. Any suggestions on how to improve the view of the back kitchen wall.

Hard to do without a full remodel or knowing the layout of your space. I would look for a tall beach painting or something to hang on the back wall that draws you attention away from the kitchen itself. Good luck!

I would get a large beach themed poster for the wall. It will add a focal pint and cover the panel.

Add a colorful runner:

Stencil the wall, it will add tons of personality to the space and make an impression when you open the door!

If it was my place, I would go with large beach themed poster or art as suggested above. The one I think makes best statement is, "all I need is .....& the colours are awesome.

A fun project, and you can switch art out when you tire of it!!
