The cooler temperatures of autumn and the darker evenings have finally arrived – giving you the perfect excuse for a simple kitchen re-design. Revamping your kitchen space for autumn is a great idea. It’s not only fun, it transforms your space too – making it feel warm, welcoming and autumn-ready. We’ve got plenty of ideas for autumn kitchen design, the following being a few of our favourites….
Whether you’re looking to enhance your space with a few accessories or want to revamp your space with a brand new wall of colour, go autumnal. There are a number of great autumnal colour palettes, which look gorgeous in the season and all year round. For something warm and modern, opt for a pop of red. If you’d prefer something Tuscan in style, combine warm maples with terracotta. Warmer neutrals, such as cashmere and beige are also great for autumn and best suited to families that would prefer to keep colour schemes simple.
Rustic design fits right in with the autumnal season and can be inexpensive too. If you’re not quite ready to transform your kitchen with a traditional natural wood design, why not opt for rustic accessories? Wooden chopping boards, slate place mats and rustic-inspired décor can be added to your kitchen to take it into the new season.
Add some style to your kitchen with a seasonal centrepiece. A table centrepiece can add the wow factor to any kitchen and is a great way to enhance your space in the autumn and winter months. Style with seasonal fruits, vegetables and flowers and keep the design rustic in style.
If you’ve got an open plan kitchen design, it’s a good idea to allocate part of your space for socialising. This cosy, sociable space should feature sofas or comfy chairs and a rug – welcoming friends and family to gather during the colder seasons.
Perhaps the easiest way to add an autumnal touch to your kitchen is by switching your accessories. Replace your usual dishcloths, seat pads and place mats with something seasonal in style. You could also switch your blinds and curtains for something autumnal in colour.
Mood lighting is ideal for the autumnal months. You can still make the most of your task lighting – necessary when days are shorter and darker – but create a romantic and cosy autumnal space with mood lighting.
