Colorful cabinetry and warm wood make a cozy combination.

If you’re thinking of remodeling or renovating your kitchen, you may want to opt for a design that’s more welcoming and cozy. Designing a cozy kitchen is easy, and with next year’s projected trends, it’s likely to be a popular move. Here are a few things you can incorporate into your remodel to create a cozy kitchen.

Incorporate Warm Metals

There’s a reason the surgical white kitchen is falling out of style. Many homeowners still enjoy white in the kitchen, but more and more are looking for warmer touches that add a little variation to the design. Using warm metals like copper and bronze is a great way to add a little coziness to the kitchen. Your cabinet hardware, fixtures, and even some appliances can come in these warm metals!

Opt for Colorful Cabinetry

Cabinetry makes a huge impression on the overall style of any kitchen. If you’re looking for something a bit more vibrant, colorful kitchen cabinetry will go a long way. Colors on the warmer side of the color wheels, such as a rustic red or a pastel pink, work great for creating an intriguing and welcoming atmosphere. You can even go with colors that are not traditionally considered “warm”, as long as they are the right hue. For example, deep forest green cabinets pair excellently with other natural elements in the kitchen, creating an inviting and cozy kitchen. For the best color choices, your designer can talk with you to help you decide.

Splurge on Lighting

While it’s still important to have bright task lighting in work areas, the rest of the kitchen doesn’t necessarily need to be brightly lit all the time. This is your chance to invest in statement lighting that adds visual appeal and sets the mood. Handmade glass pendant lighting or even a small chandelier can add a warm and homey touch to the kitchen.
