Add warmth to your kitchen this autumn
As we enter autumn, we often experience the realisation that it is the time when the kitchen truly becomes the heart of the home. If you tend to feel the chill in your kitchen, here are some of the best ways to add a little warmth.
How to raise the temperature this season
- Insulate: If you’re able, when getting your kitchen renovated, ensure you use sufficient insulation. It’s a total must for locking in the heat and keeping you toasty.
- Invest in a draft excluder: Draft excluders are a great and cost-efficient way to keep the heat in and the cold out.
- Close curtains: Like draft excluders, curtains can prevent heat from escaping from single-glazed windows. Choose a burgundy or rustic hue when selecting fabrics to create an impression of heat for the eyes too.
- Choose a soft furnished sofa: There’s nothing more chilling than a cold leather sofa. Instead, pick a soft textured fabric, plenty of cushions and a cosy throw that’s sure to keep you snug.
Ways to Warm Up White
- Open shelving: This style of storage sets a welcoming, help-yourself tone. Bottom shelves can hold everyday items and upper shelves should store a mix of white and wooden serving pieces.
- Wicker baskets: Can be placed on white shelving to liven up the sea of white with subtle texture.
- Upholstered dining chairs: Hemp slipcovers are comfortable and Ultra-soft, flax-coloured fabric is both forgiving and machine-washable.
- Natural surfaces: Wooden tables and limestone countertops add depth without overpowering the all-white basics.
