People who would like to update their kitchen decor may want to try using wallpaper borders. Kitchen wallpaper borders come in many colors and patterns, so finding one to match a particular kitchen design can be easy to do. Some borders are very narrow, so this could be a good choice if there is a limited amount of space. Other kitchen decorations are wider; some may also have rounded or scalloped edges. Some wallpaper borders may require paste, while other types are pre-pasted.

Kitchen wallpaper borders generally revolve around different types of food. This could be in the way of fruits, vegetables, coffee, or pasta. Some kitchen decor may include things commonly found in a kitchen such as china. Others could have pictures of animals, and cows and roosters are two common choices.

People can find kitchen wallpaper borders to fit many different types of interior design. For example, if the cabinets are placed high on the wall, there may be little space to put up one of these borders. In that instance, a narrow one that is around 5 inches (13.34 cm) wide might be ideal. These kitchen decorations could also be up to 10 1/2 inches (26.67 cm) wide, and one of these borders may work better if there is an open wall or plenty of space above the cabinets.

Kitchen wallpaper borders can be pasted or pre-pasted. The type a homeowner chooses can largely depend on the ventilation in the kitchen. Pasted varieties could be best if there is a great deal of humidity in the kitchen, but might not be needed if this room is well-ventilated. People can also choose peel and stick types, which are more like stickers or appliqu├ęs than wallpaper border, and these can be used no matter what type of ventilation is in the room.

The surface of a kitchen wallpaper border may be smooth, while others contain ridges or grooves. When choosing which kitchen decor to put up, it can be important to think about how easy it might be to clean the wallpaper. Some borders are able to be scrubbed, which means grease and dirt can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Others may require degreasers or harsh chemicals in order to remove stains.
