We’ve all noticed the colder temperatures and the darker evenings creeping in - autumn is here and that means it’s time for a simple kitchen redesign. Changing up your kitchen space for autumn is a great way to keep things fun and current; making it feel warm, welcoming and most importantly, autumn ready! Here are a few ideas for autumn kitchen design.
Autumnal Colour Palette
Whether you’re looking to enhance your space with a few accessories or you want to go all out and revamp your space with a brand new wall of colour, go autumnal. There are a wide variety of beautiful autumnal colour palettes, which not only look stunning for the season, but all year round too. For something warm and modern, opt for a pop of red; if Tuscan is more your style combine maples and terracotta. Warmer neutrals such as cashmere and beige are also great basics for autumn, and are best suited for homes that would prefer to keep colour schemes simple.
Add some much-needed style to your kitchen with a statement 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 months. Style with seasonal fruits, vegetables and flowers and keep the design rustic.
Rustic design goes hand-in-hand with the autumn season and can be fairly inexpensive too. If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge and fully transform your kitchen with a traditional wood design, why not opt for rustic accessories instead? Include wooden chopping boards, slate place mats and rustic-inspired decor - these can all be added to your kitchen to take it into the new season.
This is perhaps the easiest way to add autumnal touches to your kitchen; switching out accessories. Replace your usual dishcloths, seat pads, place mats and coasters with something seasonal in style. You could also go one step further and switch your blinds and curtains for something along the autumnal colour themes.
If you have an open plan kitchen design or a kitchen-diner, it’s a good idea to allocate part of that space for socialising. This cosy, sociable space could feature autumnal sofas, comfy chairs and even a rug; welcoming friends and family to gather together during the colder seasons.
Make the Transition with Light
Mood lighting is perfectly suited for the autumn months. You can still make the most of your task lighting, this is going to be necessary when the days are shorter and darker - but mood lighting can create a romantic and cosy autumnal space with kitchen lighting.
