With the nights drawing in and the weather turning colder, we want more than ever to hygge up the heart of our family home. We don’t know about you, but the kitchen seems to be the central hub – it’s where we cook, eat, entertain, and even dry off the dog after a muddy walk. So how can you go about turning the most used room in your home into a space that feels like somewhere to cosy down? We’ve got just the tips for you!

Choose your colours

Some colours scream summer and alfresco living. While we love all things bright and beautiful, muted or pale tones make a room look that much cosier. Whether you’re a fan of rich reds, faint blues or deep forest shades, every piece of your kitchen can work to create a homey feeling. Something as simple as a grey kitchen splashback can bring the room together and give off that grounded, hunkering down vibe you want.

Let there be light

If you’re looking to up the cosiness factor, you don’t always want a stark overhead light beaming down. Whether you’re enjoying a friendly chat or eating a homemade bowl of soup, mood lighting can help you to feel calmer and more content. Think about adding some new light fixtures with lower wattage bulbs, or even better, a dimmer switch for that extra layer of contented elegance.

Please be seated

If you want to fully enjoy your cosy kitchen, you need somewhere wonderful to sit. Even if your space is small, you can choose a pair of tasteful minimalist stools with padded seats. If you have more space, add a chair where you can properly relax.

The natural world

A great way to turn your kitchen into a place where you want to spend time is to add some beautiful plants. Whether you love succulents or cacti, having a few around your kitchen brings nature inside and gives your kitchen a splash of brightness that doesn’t fight with your colour scheme – whether you choose a pale blue kitchen or something a little more earthy. Roaring fire optional!
