Kitchens typically do not have a lot of wall space, thanks to cabinetry, backsplashes, windows, and doorways.

Line the back of shelves or a backsplash with beaded board to add cottage style texture to your kitchen. Paint the beaded board a fun color that matches the rest of your kitchen, and be sure to finish it with a waterproof sealant if you are installing it behind or around a sink. Use windows as a spot for pattern and color in a kitchen where neutrals reign.
