We love finding simple solutions to common problems here at Apartment Therapy. For instance, artwork in the kitchen. Since most folks spend a lot time in the kitchen, it's always great when wall decor can serve several purposes....Some goals for the space might be to create a cozy nook or to open up a tight spot with a small space solution. Instead of incorporating artwork over the dining room table, Jenelle opts for bamboo panels as wall decor. In a previous apartment, they served the place of a headboard in the bedroom. And now the textured bamboo panels provide coziness and warmth to the kitchen. We also like how the two placed side by side make the ceiling appear much taller and help to open up the seating area.
