Colours to warm up your kitchen this winter



Whether you use tea towels, flowers or furnishings, keeping your kitchen on trend when it comes to seasonal colour schemes is great idea. Colour not only brings your kitchen in line with the landscape, it also has the power to create an atmosphere – from fresh, airy and bright with spring colours, to warm and cosy with winter colours.

The perfect palette


When it comes to thinking about colours, it sometimes pays to think outside the box. Thinking about things we readily associate with winter gives us plenty of inspiration, but it’s always a good idea to combine this with our own personal tastes and style.

Our top winter colour choices include:

  • Cranberry
  • Orange
  • Raspberry
  • Aubergine
  • Cherry
  • Cinnamon
  • Hazelnut
  • Plum
  • Mustard
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Damson

Soft, warm shades such as yellow, orange, cranberry, peach and pink have a cheerful personality and can be used to create the feel of a friendly, welcoming home. Alternatively, you could opt for red-carpet ready colours such as ruby, damson, or plum for a confident and more glamorous look. Hazelnut, mustard, and cinnamon are ideal for homeowners that want to add a subtle nod to winter with their interior design, but don’t want to go too over the top.

If you do choose a bold colour, such as damson or ruby red, don’t forget to tone them down a little with a more neutral colour, such as pale grey. This will ensure your room still remains light and airy, while featuring a warmer winter palette.

Embrace the season with accessories


While it may be too big a job to completely repaint and redesign your kitchen for the season, a few accessories and accents will be just as good at adding a touch of winter style to your home. Colour is also best introduced as an accent, in the form of a feature wall or in accessories.

Some easy ideas include:

  • Seasonal table runners, tablecloths and tea towels
  • Special crockery, used only in wintertime
  • Seasonal fruits and vegetables showcased in rustic crates or winter coloured bowls
  • A change of curtain or blind, to add an accent of seasonal colour
  • Seasonal table centerpieces
  • Bold appliances, for example a red kettle and set of red pots and pans. 

Add a touch of texture

Just like colour, texture is important too. Wood is a great winter texture and can be used for your kitchen floor, your work surfaces, or your kitchen table. Twigs and branches are another stylish option, and can be incorporated in a pretty winter table centerpiece. Other accessories, such as wooden crates, look great in a rustic, farmhouse style kitchen too.

The Kitchen Design Centre Barrowford is a stunning showroom that occupies three shops on the high street - 4, 5, and 6 Gladstone Terrace.

Mr and Mrs Lowcock recently visited the showroom when they were considering a new kitchen for their busy family home. Mr Lowcock has fond memories of visiting his father’s plumbing shop in 4 Gladstone Terrace, which made the visit quite nostalgic!
The couple chose a Hacker Ravenna Pearl Grey kitchen with bespoke Artista Grey Corian worktops. The main focus of the design was to brighten up the space by using better lighting and natural colors. The addition of practical appliances, including a Quooker boiling tap, made it easy for the multi-generational family to use the kitchen.
