The fall weather is here, and chances are you will be spending more of your time indoors. A warm and inviting space is a great way to beat the cool and wet weather. As your premier real estate agent for homes for sale in Brea, here are some great ways that you can transform your kitchen into the coziest room in the house.
The fall season provides an excellent opportunity to add some darker autumn colors to your kitchen décor. Not only will these color palettes bring an air of warmth to your kitchen, they will also provide excellent contrast to other autumn items in your kitchen, such as:
- Seasonal fruits and vegetables – Apples (dark reds), squash and pumpkins (oranges and yellows).
- Brightly colored placemats or table linens.
- Natural wood tables, benches or countertops.
Here’s the Deal:
The juxtaposition of dark and seasonal colors is sure to add a fall feel to any kitchen. Give it a try, you are sure to be pleased with the results.
Make it Pop
Regardless of what room you are looking to add to, adding a pop or two of color is a guaranteed head turner. If you have an accent wall and want to make a statement, consider painting it. Warm, dark colors such as oranges, reds, browns or even an olive tone will instantly add depth and a sense of coziness to your kitchen.
If you don’t want to invest the time into painting a whole wall, other great ways to create a cozy ambiance in your kitchen can include:
- A piece of art with rich and deep colors.
- Tablecloths, dishes or even placemats in rich dark tones.
- Painting smaller portions of your kitchen such as cabinets or countertops in warm inviting autumn colors.
Butcher block is the newest must have for any kitchen. Not only does it add an instant farmhouse look, butcher block is also quite durable and looks better the longer you have it. If you have been thinking about replacing your countertops or table, butcher block is an excellent option. A less expensive alternative that will give your kitchen a warmer more rustic feel is adding a large cutting board made of butcher block.
Live plants are a nice addition to any room in your home. Not only do they add color, they also provide a sense of freshness. Try adding some live plants in your kitchen or take it one step further and bring your herb garden indoors. Regardless of what type of plant you choose, you will enjoy the added touch they provide.
These simple changes will make your kitchen much warmer and inviting and a great place to spend the cold, fall days.
