In the DFW area and across the country, we all tend to spend more time indoors when fall arrives. Temperatures are cooler, there aren’t as many outdoor activities to enjoy, and the holidays are fast approaching. Considering you’ll be spending more time indoors and perhaps entertaining friends and family, wouldn’t it be great to cozy up your kitchen for the fall and winter months? Our Dallas real estate professionals have a few ideas you’re going to love!
Whether you have a tile, stone, laminate or wood floor in the kitchen, a vintage rug can inject rich, warm color into the room. Think autumn colors like deep orange, gold, amber, red and yellow.
Painting your cabinets (or even a single wall) a deep shade of green or cinnamon can really warm things up in the kitchen, giving it a cozier feel. Find unique ways to incorporate color and texture into the room.
Richly colored art on the walls, a shelf full of books, plants adorning counter tops or a buffet; use those things that are often unexpected in the kitchen to bring in character.
Have an area with open shelving? Give your kitchen some personality by not trying to display perfectly matched sets. Mix it up whether you have a few family heirlooms, pieces you made yourself, an old glass vase, a chrome teapot, colorful pieces with old-fashioned appeal – anything goes.
Tone down the bright lights. When you have white or light colored walls, a tile floor and stainless steel or white appliances, bright light only lends to the “operating room” atmosphere. Think of warmer, ambient light such as a charming chandelier or lighting fixtures that allow you to control the brightness level.
Try a few of these suggestions to cozy up your kitchen and make it a welcoming, comfortable space for the fall and winter seasons. The kitchen is the “hub” of the home after all!
