How to Update Your Kitchen for Autumn


Is your kitchen looking a little tired? Do you want to give it a new lease of life for the season ahead? If yes, then you have come to the right place for inspiration.

Whether you want to completely refurbish your kitchen or just make a few small changes, the below blog is packed full of amazing ideas on how to update your kitchen for autumn.

Create a New Seating Area

As autumn approaches and the weather turns cooler, you will likely spend less time in the garden and more time in your home. If you do not currently spend a lot of time in your kitchen, apart from when cooking, it can be a good idea to create a seating area where all the family can relax and sit together.

When it comes to kitchen refurbishment, there are several seating options to choose from. You could invest in an island and some bar stools or, if you don’t have enough space for this, a small table and chairs is another way to create a communal area in the kitchen.

Invest in New Worktops

One of the easiest ways to completely transform the look of your kitchen is to invest in new worktops. As autumn is approaching and you are likely to want your kitchen to feel warm and welcoming, granite worktops are a great choice. Plus, they are very long-lasting and can add value to your property.

Alternatively, real wood worktops such as walnut can add depth to your kitchen and make the key room look more luxurious.

Add a Gallery Wall

If your kitchen walls look a little plain and uninspiring, a gallery wall offers an affordable and visually appealing way to make them stand out.

Whether you have a favourite artist, movement or collection, you can create an eye-catching gallery wall with as few as five pictures or prints. For maximum impact, choose prints in a variety of different sizes and mix and match various frames.

If you are unsure about the layout, there are lots of gallery wall design ideas online that will give you the inspiration you need.

Give It a Fresh Coat of Paint

If you are on a tight budget and looking for a quick and affordable way to refresh your kitchen for autumn, a fresh coat of paint is the way to go.

Think lush and rich colours such as deep turquoises, forest greens, earthy tones, and vibrant oranges. If you are worried about the room looking dark, why not create an autumnal feature wall, splash back or simply invest in autumn-coloured kitchen accessories?

Use Autumn Foliage

For those that love to bring a touch of the outdoors inside their home, autumn foliage can be placed around the kitchen to add warmth and depth to the space. For example, if you have an abundance of yellow, orange and red leaves in your garden, these can be used to create an autumnal wreath or two to hang in your kitchen. Alternatively, pumpkins in various sizes will always look good and can be placed on shelves between jars and other storage containers.

Finally, potted and artificial plants can achieve a similar effect – just make sure to choose plants that complement the autumnal aesthetic if you head down to your local garden centre or go shopping online for foliage – either real or fake.
