4 tip-top decor ideas to welcome autumn into your kitchen

autumn kitchen

The first leaves have started falling, and you know what that means: autumn is just around the corner! It’s time to start cosying up in preparation for the colder months. Still, before all that, it’s time to get the house ready to welcome in the new season, and today we’re talking about the kitchen. Getting the perfect autumnal kitchen is easier than you’d think, especially with our four top tips, from the perfect autumn colour palette to laminate kitchen worktops. So grab yourself a warm cup of tea and settle in while we walk you through the basics of this seasonal kitchen transformation.

Bring in the season with an autumnal colour palette

Arguably, one of the most significant statements you can make in your kitchen is with colour. The colour of your kitchen really sets the tone for the atmosphere and ties everything together – it’s the canvas for your creativity! So, wherever an autumn palette is concerned, there are a few colours will always bring that warmth and cosiness into a space.

The classic choices are reds, browns and burnt oranges, but if that’s a little bright for your tastes – don’t worry! Darker colours like forest green, rich plum purples and even navy all make brilliant alternatives while still providing the same feel. And if you love your white kitchen and can’t bear to part with it – don’t worry; we’ve got you covered, too! We’d suggest changing up your curtains and kitchen accessories like tea towels and crockery to add that splash of autumnal colour without the commitment!

Refresh your space with new hardware in warm metal shades

Sometimes, when it comes to giving your kitchen a new look and feel, the little changes make the biggest impact, and that’s definitely the case for your kitchen hardware. Kitchen hardware is an excellent DIY task for anyone looking to fill up an afternoon because not only is it easy, but it’s quick and often inexpensive! We’d suggest metals in warm colours like brass and gold for an autumnal vibe with a hint of luxury. These are a perfect way to subtly nod to the changing seasons without putting yourself to a whole lot of trouble, and the payoff is still great! These new metal editions look especially beautiful when displayed on rich autumnal colour pallets.

Incorporate rustic wood into the kitchen

Nothing feels autumnal quite like rustic wood countertops, and the best thing is they look stunning all year round, too. While solid wood is attractive, a homely and cosy wood countertop doesn’t have to break the bank! At Savoy Timber, we have a wide selection of wood-look laminate kitchen worktops that will do the job perfectly, and give you all the beauty of wood without the price tag! For example, our laminate countertop in Walnut Block 30mm Wilsonart is the perfect wood-style countertop for someone looking for something versatile, beautiful and affordable.

If you love more of a cabin-in-the-woods style, then our Egger Natural Halifax Oak 40mm is the ideal choice. Its striking cracks and knots effortlessly simulate the rustic look of nature – perfect for a cosy autumnal kitchen. While they’re two different takes on an autumnal countertop, both perfectly combine style, endurance and affordability to deliver a look that will enhance any kitchen!

Create layer and texture with soft furnishings and accessories

If you’re looking for those finishing touches or an easy way to add that extra layer of interior design to your space for autumn, try dressing up your room with soft furnishing. The same way we wrap up with our hats, scarves, and blankets, you can clad your kitchen with the homeware equivalent! We’re talking cushions, blankets draped over seats, new curtains, tea towels – anything that adds that extra layer of comfort and texture (plus it’s practical; it can get chilly at night in the kitchen!). For accessories, the choices are endless. You can opt for traditional autumnal decor like pumpkins or you could try your hand at making your own decor! If you’d prefer something subtle yet on theme, then a fruit bowl full of gourds and mini pumpkins, a wreath or even some autumn-scented candles will help elevate your space.

Best of all, most of this can be accomplished with a free weekend, a minimal budget and some imagination – we don’t say DIY made easy for nothing! If you’re looking to go the extra mile and completely transform the look and feel of your kitchen with a laminate kitchen worktop, that’s where we come in!

At Savoy Timber, we have a wide selection of kitchen worktops, all right here on our site and ready for you to browse such as our Zenith Solid Compact and our Egger Kitchen Worktops ranges. If you’d like to come down and see them in person, we also stock them in our DIY stores in Blackpool, Preston or Wigan.
