Forks, spoons and knives are useful implements if you're eating a meal, but they can also be classic accents on kitchen walls or countertops. You can find artwork of forks, wall sculptures of spoons and so much more. Flatware decor can fit any style kitchen, depending on the pattern of the flatware and the finish used.
Flatware door handles will definitely add one-of-a-kind appeal to your kitchen cabinets. If you don't want to use them on all your cabinet fronts, choose to incorporate them only on the upper cabinets, and use the same finish on a knob down below. Or use them just on your island.
Hang extra-large metal flatware on the wall as art elements to add some humor to your kitchen. The rounded shape, sparse detailing and silver finish keep these accessories looking contemporary. They would work great in any transitional or modern kitchen.
Add a traditional feel to your eating area using prints of flatware in antique gold detailed frames. The black matting allows the images of flatware to shine.
Replicas of vintage silverware add a touch of opulence to dining room walls. The sophistication of a large $200 Grande Baroque dinner fork on the wall might inspire more formal dinners.
Or create a flatware-theme wall grouping with different frames and media.
Here's a clever idea for reusing a spoon. These hooks give your kitchen a warm feel. Hang a leash on one, or use a row of them for coats and bags. You can purchase one of these or make your own. Use needle-nose pliers to bend your spoon's handle and drill a hole or two in the bowl to attach it to the wall.
Decorate a countertop with vintage silverware. Mixing antiques with modern design is a big trend right now, but it is also a great way to make a modern space feel warm. Gather a collection mis-matched flatware and keep them together in an apothecary jar.
