Fall is finally here and many of us are looking forward to cosy nights at home, pumpkin spice everything, and crisp walks in the golden woodlands. If you are looking to make some changes to your kitchen for the cooler seasons, today we want to share some fun ideas with you. 

Add warmth and fun to your kitchen this year and you will be able to enjoy a stunning space for all the family to enjoy. 

Warm up the kitchen with standing candles 

The first way to bring some warmth to your kitchen this fall is to add some standing candles to the kitchen table and create a stunning and elegant feature. Standing candles and their holders bring a real sense of warmth and elegance to your kitchen design and they can be a brilliant way to add a little colour to your kitchen. You can choose a metallic one such as gold or silver, or go for something with a warm tone such as red or orange to match the season. 

Consider new kitchen cupboards 

If you are looking to make some larger changes to your kitchen such as new worktops and cupboards or stunning freestanding kitchens, one thing to consider is the colour of your kitchen cupboards. If you are looking for a colour that will bring warmth and brightness to the room all year long you could choose an orange or rust tone which will keep your kitchen looking fresh and bright. You could also consider a stunning teal which will offset warmer colours beautifully and will be a timeless choice for all times of the year. Perhaps look online for inspiration for your kitchen cupboard colours and consider ways to make them look fresh and warm. 

Repaint the walls a warm colour

One of the easiest ways to change your home to suit the season is with a fresh kick of paint on the walls. Warm tones are synonymous with the fall and winter however you can go the opposite way and bring a dark tone such as navy to the wall which will provide the perfect background for all of your orange and gold toned accessories during the fall and winter. 

Hang a wreath for atmosphere

One of the great little features you can add to warm the kitchen during the fall is a beautiful wreath with golden and red leaves, lights, and other fall items. There are plenty of ways for you to bring some life to your wreath and whether you buy one or opt to make one, adding some battery powered fairy lights throughout is a brilliant way for you to add some magic to the wreath. Hanging a stunning warm wreath on your door will warm it up and it will also make the room look more inviting and fun.
