Matching Your Color Scheme

One concern you may have when choosing the perfect color palate for your kitchen is how it will match with your cabinetry and appliances that are already in place. Typically, darker finishes and appliances will do well with warm, contemporary or bright colors. While kitchen colors with white cabinets do well with bolder and pastel colors, or even other shades of white, because they already do a great job of brightening up the room.

1. Variations Of White

If you love what’s trending right now, creating a kitchen with variations of white is hot. Subway tiles and mixed shades of white can truly make your kitchen feel bright and clean as you cook. This is a timeless color scheme and is great if you’re going for a farmhouse kitchen look.

2. Warm & Wonderful

Surround yourself with warmth as you cook with colors that reflect how you feel. Use light reds, oranges and yellow hues. Benjamin Moore makes a perfect warm color palate that’s great for a cozy kitchen called Spicy & Modern Yellow. It utilizes a soft shade of white to really make the trim pop.

3. Cool & Calm

From everyday cooking to small gatherings the kitchen tends to be an active center of the home. Give yourself, your family and guests a relaxed feel with a cool kitchen color scheme. Use soft greens or blues on kitchen walls and compliment with a light gray for the trim.

4. Bright & Yellow

The kitchen should be a cheerful place and your paint. By using yellow, you can either go bold and contemporary with sleek cabinet hardware and stainless steel appliances, or choose a lighter yellow for a vintage look. Behr has a great color palate with Upbeat yellow as it’s wall color and soft white and black as accents, giving it an ageless appeal.

5. Bold & Turquoise

If you’re going for a retro look, turquoise is it. This is my latest favorite in kitchen color trends. It’s a bold color, but not shocking and comes in many different shades. If you’re not feeling risky, go with a softer turquoise with white or crème accents. If you want your kitchen to truly make a statement, go with a brighter turquoise and incorporate various shades of light blue or green, with accents of gray.

Affordable Kitchen Tips For Decoration

My guess is you spend a considerable amount of time in or around your kitchen on a daily basis. Whether you’re cooking, cleaning or rearranging, it’s a room that requires your attention.

1. Bring On The Charm

You may be more inclined to pay attention to the details and personal touches in your bedroom or living room, but they matter in your kitchen too. There are so many great décor pieces out there and DIY projects for you to get lost in. Large display letters, hanging plants, fresh flowers, homemade storage and chalkboards are a few ideas that’ll add instant charm and style to your kitchen. A perfect example of a charming kitchen is represented in the breakfast nook image above, which mixes stripes, plants, red accents and an antique chandelier.

2. Create A Colorful Cookbook Display

It’s easy to get caught up collecting cookbooks filled with unique and tasty recipes. The more you have, the harder it is to find space to store them. Install vertical open shelving cabinets and paint the shelves a fun color, then strategically place and display your favorite cookbooks for all to see. Doing this will upgrade your cookbooks from dusty cabinet fillers to trendy décor in no time. Another option is to sneak in cookbook shelf space on the exposed end of a cabinet or island.

3. Fasten Tailored Slipcovers

Before you head out and purchase brand new kitchen chairs or stools, ask yourself if a simple slipcover could solve your problem. Interior decorators advise to save your money and skip the fancy upholstery and instead, choose fitted slipcovers for your kitchen chairs. They’re easy to wash, practical and an inexpensive solution in a potentially messy, high-traffic area. Slipcovered kitchen or bar stools will add class and character to a dull space. They come in all sorts of patterns and colors too!

4. Spruce Up Cabinets With Glass Door Inserts Or Adhesive Backing

Cabinet refacing is a brilliant way to transform your kitchen’s look without going to the trouble and considerable expense of a complete renovation. I like the idea of installing glass door inserts to add an element of surprise to your kitchen. There are plenty of possibilities besides plain clear glass including, etched (shown), fluted, crackled and colored or patterned glass. Don’t be afraid to show off your new cabinets with a little interior cabinet lighting.

In addition, peel-and-stick adhesive backing, otherwise known as removable wallpaper, has come a long way. There’s a pattern available for every kitchen style these days, and you can even design your own.

Replace Summer Bedding

One quick decorating trick that’ll make your bedroom feel more like fall is to swap out your summer bedding for something warmer; warmer colors, as well as, warmer materials. Soft comforters, pillows and blankets are sure to bump summer ambiences right out of the room. Add comfortable rugs, décor and lighting to really cozy up your bedroom this fall.

If you’re worried about making your room look too dark, then use window treatments, lamps, furniture and artwork to liven it up. It may also be the perfect time to throw on a fresh coat of paint. Painting is a wonderful DIY project for fall, as the weather cools and you find yourself spending more time indoors.

Dress Up Windows

Sprucing up your windows is a practical way to draw more of the fall vibes into your home. A curtain wall, drapes, embellishments and sheer overlays are easy ways to dress up your windows. Lifestyle media publisher, POPSUGARadvises hanging curtains all the way across a wall to add visual interest and create a cozy effect with the bulk of the material. Ikea has endless curtain options at a low price, so you can buy plenty of panels to reach across a wall.

Be mindful of the colors and materials you’re selecting so you’re sure to create the right look for the season. Consider installing warm hues that mimic nature and fabrics that flow and make the room feel more comfortable.

Cozy Up with Lights & Candles

Fall is the perfect season to go overboard with candles and lighting options. These decorative elements have the ability to instantly cozy up any space. If you’re a DIYer, this is a great opportunity to get the family together and make your own candles and string lights.

A variety of candles and mood lighting improves the ambiance in your home. Candles are also an easy way to add a pop of color or sweet smell to each room.

Display Extra Throws, Pillows & Blankets

Head to your local home goods store and stock up on extra throws, pillows and blankets that are soft and cozy, or hire an expert to help. It’s a good idea to switch out decorative pillows for your couches or chairs according to the season. Choose colors and styles that bring the fall season indoors.
