Paint is nice, but decorating with kitchen wallpaper and borders can add a whole new dimension to a room
Depending on your style of kitchen this can really work to enhance the decor especially if your room is rather large.
Popular patterns of matching kitchen wallpaper and borders include those with a bit of nostalgia. Something that looks antique or has an old world scene on it. A romantic floral for a Victorian kitchen, 1950's atomic for a 50's kitchen or scenes of Italy for a Tuscan kitchen. You can even get borders that look like shelves up at the top of your room and have interesting items on them like bird houses, collections and antiques!
Take a trip to your local store and see what they have that might fit your kitchen.
Of course, you should buy matched sets of kitchen wallpaper and borders so that the colors and theme match perfectly. You may be able to match them up in the store but a set that is made for each other is better. In a kitchen, I think it is best to have a plainer paper with a more decorative border. Many sets give you a choice of 2 or more matching pieces so it shouldn’t be too hard to find something that will look great.
Here's a list of some kitchen wallpaper and borders that might look good with a particular decorating theme:

FLoral and Botanicals
Campbells Soup (yes, there is even a border with antique looking soup lables!)

And once you have chosen your kitchen wallpaper and border, don't forget to coordinate those with your curtains, floor coverings and wall decor. Make sure you don't pick busy patterns for all those elements or your kitchen might make you dizzy!
