Helpful Tips to Make Your Kitchen Cozier
After all that time you spent at home during the pandemic, you, like most of us, craved something new. You dream of a kitchen makeover, but before you start pinning white kitchens on Instagram or Pinterest, think about the value of a cozy kitchen. Surrounding yourself with a cozy setting guarantees you’ll always have a happy place to go to, literally. You'll love coming home to it every time
Here are some helpful ways to make your kitchen space a lot cozier:
- Add some color. Minimalist kitchens can sometimes have a clinical feel to them, but forgoing white for another color can bring a sense of personality. One way to incorporate color is with a backsplash. Other options include painting the walls, getting colorful appliances, or creating a colored island that stands out from your cabinets.
- Use warm tones. Butcher block countertops and wood cabinets are two of the hottest trends for kitchens these days. They offer an instant warm and cozy feeling, which is great for anyone with a busy lifestyle. You can also create the same feeling by purchasing a unique island. A warm color palette immediately invites coziness into your kitchen design.
- Lighting. To make a kitchen cozier, you need to use the correct lighting. Use ambient, task, and accent lighting to create an inviting space. Use bulbs that give off a warm glow.
- Seating. Breakfast nooks have become a popular trend in kitchens and dining room layouts. They feature bench seating around a central table, which encourages togetherness. Of course, not every kitchen can accommodate a breakfast nook. But you can still bring that sense of togetherness to your kitchen by creating comfortable seating arrangements around a central piece of furniture, such as an island or dining table.
If you give some or all of these ideas a try, your kitchen will turn into an interesting space that reflects your beliefs and personality. The food served will taste better and you’ll enjoy it even more! It will surely become a place where you want to spend more of your time.
