Incorporating Natural Materials To Your Kitchen
Because kitchens are made up primarily of hard surfaces they can easily begin to feel cold. Bringing in natural materials with wood, area rugs, or accessories are all a great ways to add some warmth to your kitchen.
The stained beadboard ceiling in this kitchen makes this neutral space feel instantly homey.
The rich, dark stain on this kitchen’s island is another great example of how homeowners take advantage of wood’s charming character to create a welcoming space to prepare food. If you’re working with an already existing kitchen or don’t wish to use wood prominently in your space, there are plenty of other ways to add warmth.
- Keep out a large, wooden cutting board
- Use a colorful bowl for displaying fruit
- Add a runner or area rug in front of the sink or where you stand to prepare food
- Create a potted herb garden in a kitchen window
- Use woven baskets on top of upper cabinets or on open shelving
