Bohemian design style is characterized by bright colors, unique patterns, fun decor, and layered textures. Boho spaces give you the freedom to make a space feel uniquely yours, with plenty of character to go around. With that being said, a bohemian kitchen can range from minimalist, like the design pictured above, to a space with many colors and patterns layered together.
In this blog we will explore 10 different design ideas for a bohemian style kitchen space. Let's get into it!

Boho Kitchen Tile
One of the most important elements of any bohemian style kitchen is colorful patterned tile. Tile can be used on the walls or floors, giving you the opportunity to pick which suits your space the best. In the kitchen pictured above, green tile spans the entire wall, with vintage red tile for the flooring. Different colored tiles are a great way to add contrast to a boho kitchen, and can make the room appear larger.

Boho Kitchen Decor
When it comes to decorating a bohemian style kitchen, three words come to mind: plants, patterns, and color. By mixing up these three elements, your kitchen space will be transformed from bland to bohemian with the snap of your fingers!
The first step of creating your dream bohemian kitchen is to pick out a colorful, beautiful oriental rug (or two!) to put in the space. This immediately creates a boho feel no matter what style your kitchen is, and also adds color and pattern that could have previously been missing. With the colors in the rug, you will have an easier job of picking the surrounding decor in the space.
Colorful wallpaper is making its way back into the modern kitchen design scene. Wallpaper comes in all colors and textures, giving you hundreds of thousands of options to pick from. With bohemian style in mind, a bright patterned wallpaper will do just the trick. In the kitchen pictured above, the designers chose a stunning lemon-themed wallpaper, with pops of yellow brightening the entire space. Patterned wallpaper can also be an affordable choice in lieu of tile or backsplash.

Add Plenty of Greenery
If you search pictures of bohemian kitchens, a recurring theme that you will notice is the use of plants throughout the space.

Boho Style Lighting
When it comes to bohemian style kitchens, rattan pendant lighting is the perfect option to bring a lived-in feel to the space. With all of the colors and patterns that come with the boho style, rattan pendants tone down the vibrancy but also serve as a stunning focal point.

Boho Style Meets Mid Century Modern
If the full-on, eccentric bohemian look isn’t right for your space, the option to mix bohemian with mid century modern will give you the perfect in between style. With the natural wood elements, pops of vibrant colors and bright patterned floor, the bohemian elements of the space are toned down by the modern elements like the appliances, white shaker cabinets, and backsplash.
