With the fall season upon us, chances are you are starting to spend more time inside. Beat the cold and wet weather blues by adding seasonal décor to make your kitchen warmer and more inviting. As the premier agent for all your Vernon real estate needs, here are some simple tips to make your kitchen the coziest room in your home this fall.
Believe it or not, one of the best juxtapositions you can achieve is by tying in dark textiles or tablecloths to depict contrast to some of the brighter items that are on display in your kitchen such as:
- Seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables – bright reds of apples, oranges and yellows of squash and pumpkin.
- Warm, inviting and brightly coloured placemats to contrast a dark tablecloth.
- Smooth, natural wood surfaces such as butcher block (see next point), benches or tables.
Butcher block seems to be in every kitchen these days as it is an integral part of any farmhouse or rustic home look. It is also a great choice for countertops or tables because of its durability. Even if you aren’t in the market for new countertops, you can easily bring a touch of earthiness to your kitchen by adding a large cutting board. This simple addition will make your kitchen an inviting and warm space this fall.
Add Some Colour
You may be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you can transform the feel of any room in your home. If you have an accent wall or a blank one in your kitchen, consider adding deep colours such as reds, oranges, browns or olive tones. You can also add colourful fall décor to your table or even your dishes. Try a few different looks and see which one works best for you.
Houseplants are an inexpensive and easy way to add a decorative feel to your home. Houseplants will not only add life and colour to your kitchen this fall, they can also double as an herb garden. Create a mini garden on your windowsills or just add a touch of class and uniqueness to your kitchen by adding live plants.
These simple tips will transform your kitchen into the coziest room in your home. By adding a juxtaposition of dark and warm colours, your kitchen will be an inviting space this fall.
