1. Opt For Rustic Styles

Rustic decor fits perfectly with the changing season. If you already have wooden features in your kitchen, you don’t need to do much! From wooden flooring and cupboards to wooden cabinets and accessories, emphasise the earthy feel of autumn in your kitchen.

You can emphasise the autumnal season by switching your usual chopping boards, placemats, and coasters for natural wood or slate alternatives.

2. Embrace the Seasonal Colours

It’s time for the tip you probably expected, but don’t underestimate the power of colour in your home!

Adding splashes of colour into your home not only creates a different feeling in the space, but it can also impact your mood. Autumn is synonymous with golden hues, forest greens, and brilliant amber tones. This is absolutely the easiest way to bring a touch of autumn to your kitchen!

Whether it’s changing your tea towels or opting for a different mug, there’s so many ways to add in seasonal tones.

3. Include a Featured Centrepiece

Whatever your kitchen’s style, you can’t go wrong with a carefully considered centrepiece.

From fruit bowls to fresh flowers, and ornaments to plants, a centrepiece draws attention away from anything in your kitchen you might want to hide. Opt for seasonal flowers and bold autumnal colours to tie in with the falling leaves.

You don’t need to purposefully buy a new centrepiece, you can redress your existing ones. If you’ve got children, why not add in some fake pumpkins to the fruit bowl, or drape some cobwebs over your ornaments. If you’re style is more reserved, you could put your existing centrepieces on some autumnal fabric to bring some comfort to your kitchen.

4. Layer Up

When you have to layer up outside, it’s also time to layer up inside!

Layer different textures together to add comfort into your kitchen. Add a large rug on top of wood, tile, or laminate flooring for an instantly cosy feel. This works with cushions too – include cushions and blankets in your seating areas. These help to soften your kitchen and make it a more inviting place, especially in the colder months when hard cold surfaces aren’t pleasant.

Combine two of our tips together by opting for comforting items in orange and golden hues.

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We certainly weren’t the easiest customers , we weren’t sure what we wanted or when ! However Donna, Richard, Rich and their amazing team guided us through the process with utter professionalism as well as warmth and patience. The results exceeded our expectations, particularly the attention to every detail. They wouldn’t rest until they knew we were happy with everything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Alan Burton

Woodworks provided us with excellent service, from planning and design to finished kitchen

Build quality is excellent and it really does give the house the WOW factor

Our kitchen was part of a new build process for house we have built from scratch. Deadlines constantly moved, and Woodworks worked around everybody to get the job done on time and in full

After sales is very good, with tweaks to doors and cupboards all part of the service!

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with The Wood Works. Our existing kitchen was 20 years old, and the layout of the room did not make use of the available space. Josh produced inspired ideas for re-designing the whole area, and really listened to what we wanted to achieve, patiently fine-tuning the plans to our particular requirements. We are now the proud owners of a stunning and practical new kitchen which has completely exceeded our expectations. When my sister visited for the first time, she said "it looks like the kitchen of a celebrity chef!" (which I am not). What a transformation. The Wood Works is a family-run business, and that really shows in terms of their professional service, quality of fittings, attention to detail, reliability and easy communication. Nothing was too much trouble. At the start of the project, Josh promised we would have our kitchen by Christmas. I was sceptical as we were in the midst of the pandemic, but they delivered as promised, with no hitches. Thoroughly recommend.

We are delighted with the kitchen supplied and fitted by The Woodworks. The design, look and quality is brilliant. The designer (Tom Dodd), the project manager (Andy Neville) and the fitters were all brilliant. Always helpful and responsive. A really pleasing experience with Woodworks and a brilliant finished kitchen.

The design collated by Tom was brilliant and tailored brilliantly to our exact requirements.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
