We’re falling for autumn-inspired kitchens, and you can, too

Remember September, October, November, the wonderful months of Fall…

No matter where you live or what time of the year it is now, one note of Janeen Brady’s famed children’s song immediately whisks you away—an awful lot like Calgon—to autumn mountains covered with yellow, orange, rust, and red leaves, and filled with the scent of fresh pine on gentle breezes. More than that, it evokes relaxation, freedom, and welcome change. What if you could capture that styling in your kitchen and keep Fall in your favorite place all year long? Here’s a few ways you can do just that…without the breeze, of course.

Paint autumn on to your kitchen cabinets

The easiest, and quickest way, to bring autumn into your kitchen is to add a little color to your kitchen by refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets. Warm whites open up the top level of your kitchen cabinets, while autumnal colors like orange, warm greens and deep reds will make your kitchen pop with Fall color. Don’t forget to go a little country, and add some wear and aging to your cabinets for a truly “woodsy” cottage feel.

Pro-tip: Chat with your design expert at KitchenFX about the wide array of Fall colors available for your cabinets. You’re only limited by your imagination.

Or, go rustic with kitchen cabinets that look like they belong in the trees

If you’re looking for something more natural, install new kitchen cabinets that show off the wood grain with a warm, fresh-milled look. Paired with shiny brass or antiqued bronze hardware, your kitchen cabinets will evoke the woods and autumn on sight.

Pro-tip: Before you make a decision about your new kitchen cabinets, talk the cabinet installation experts at KitchenFX. Our experts know every type of wood and finish available for cabinetmaking, cabinet refinishing, and cabinet refacing. They’ll help you find exactly what you’re looking for, no matter what it is.

And, don’t be afraid to spice up your kitchen island

Often, too often, we’re led to believe—by television shows and magazines, of course—that the cabinets and shelving on our kitchen islands must match the lower kitchen cabinets for cohesion. But it isn’t true. An upcycled reclaimed dresser or garden worktable can become a statement piece in your kitchen and become the central point for your autumn look. For an existing island, think about adding a third color, like a deep terra cotta or a warm pine. 

Pro-tip: Whether you have an existing kitchen island or you’re on the market for a new one—or just new to you—talk to the kitchen designers at KitchenFX. Brainstorming together can help you to come up with new ideas, and even land on the best one.

Add a little “extra” with new counters or sinks

Popular in farmhouse kitchens, a copper sink—especially when paired with butcher block counters—can bring in exactly the type of earthen hues needed to round out your autumn kitchen look.

Pro-tip: Before you commit to any type of countertop or sink change, let your design team at KitchenFX know your plans. The type of sinks and countertops you choose can impact your cabinet installation or refinishing project, and vice versa. Having all of your ducks in a row ahead of time will save you a headache down the line.

If you want to remember September, October, November every time you enter your kitchen, think Earthy. Each earthen hue, from metals to woods, to the colors of nature will each bring you one step closer to living the autumn lifestyle all the time, whether Janeen Brady’s tunes are playing or not.
