Find Unique Art for Your Bakery

Whether you run a bakery business or just enjoy baking at home, having unique art pieces can make the space match the vibe you want to portray.  By choosing unique pieces, you can create a space with style unlike any other.  If you are on a search for great art or wall displays, consider the following ideas.

Find Unique Art for Your Bakery

Integrate Meaningful Quotes

Whether you prefer something more serious, or are looking to add a bit of humor, centering a design on specific quotes or sayings can bring a lot of personality into a space with very little effort.  An easy way to start is to frame prints of some of your favorites, matching the font and colors to the feeling you want to portray.  Whether you are looking for a quote from an author like Mark Twain or Karen Salmansohn, a song lyric from your favorite band, or a quote from a historical figure, you can integrate them into your space to create a unique final look.

One of a Kind Art Work

A great way to let you space stand out is to add art work that is hand painted, sculpted, or designed.  If each piece is an original, and not a print, then you truly own a one of a kind piece.  There are thousands of talented artists out in the world, ranging in style from traditional portrait to full abstracts.  This means there is sure to be a piece out there that speaks to you personally.

If you find an artist with a style you enjoy, you may be able to commission a custom piece.  This can allow you to have some input regarding the size of the piece, color or material choices, or even subject matter.  Many artists can take a photo you provide and use it as a basis for a custom piece, such as a portrait on canvas.

Decorate with Personal Photographs

For those that want to add a personal touch, consider displaying photographs taken by yourself or your friends and family members.  This can help you create a completely original display without having to spend a large amount of money.  All you need to photographs and a means to display them.  You can go with traditional frames, or consider a more creative route such as with lines and clothes pins.

You may also enjoy turning some of your favorite photos into magnets that can be used around the kitchen space.

Consider Children’s Art

If you bakery space leans towards the whimsical side, consider displaying the art work of your, or your employee’s, children.  This can be especially effective in a family-oriented environment, and can add a fun personal touch.  For bakeries that allow customers to dine-in, consider allowing the children of customers to add to the collection.  You can provide the supplies onsite while they dine, or just extend an open invitation to customers to bring in pieces for display.

For pieces that are brought in by others, make sure to record the contact information of the owner.  That way, if you change your display throughout the year, you can contact the original owner to return the piece if they would like to have it back.  Otherwise, consider creating a scrap book full of the additional images as a novelty piece for customers to enjoy.…
