While summer may see you fleeting across the country and abroad on holiday, autumn is the perfect time to get settled at home. With the kitchen being the heart of your home, it’s important you get the space just right – warm, welcoming, with all the essential cooking appliances and features. Updating your home for autumn needn’t be difficult either. In fact, you can discover the simple ways to transform your kitchen space in today’s blog…
There are so many fantastic autumn-inspired colour schemes that work well in the kitchen space.
A colour palette comprising of rich, golden shades of red, brown, terracotta and yellow works well for the individual that wants to create a cosy, rustic space or a chic and welcoming European-inspired kitchen.
Earth-toned shades also make another fabulous autumn kitchen colour palette. Think greens, browns, with a touch of mauve or lavender. This colour palette is the ideal choice for farmhouse kitchens, or traditional-style kitchen spaces with a shabby chic edge.
Alternatively, you could choose a colour palette that’s quite the opposite of the autumnal landscape to brighten up your kitchen space. A bright, white, minimalist kitchen, which allows in plenty of natural light, is a great option for those who want to hold on to the summer. You can tone down the clinical look of a white kitchen by adding in natural materials, such as wood, in elements ranging from your worktops to your flooring.
A simple and easy way to add a touch of autumn to your kitchen is through the use of accessories. Stock up on the season’s produce and proudly display in the centre of your kitchen island in a large fruit or vegetable ornamental bowl. Alternatively you could collect some samples from the landscape, such as acorns and rich red leaves, and pop them in a glass bowl for a kitchen table centrepiece.
Copper accessories also complement the autumn landscape – and with it being in fashion right now you’ll find plenty of things available. From copper light shades to copper pots and pans, it’s easy to inject a bit of seasonal colour.
Just because it’s autumn it doesn’t mean all those social soirees have to stop. In fact, autumn, and its many events, such as Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night, is a great time to gather with friends and family in your kitchen.
Make your kitchen space more welcoming by integrating cosy, living room-style features. Make room for sociable seating, and if you’re planning on a complete kitchen redesign think about installing a fireplace – it will be handy in the cooler months and look fantastic all year round.
