With a few simple kitchen decorations, you can easily transform your kitchen into a cozy fall focal point that’s perfect for entertaining, and spending time with family.
A few easy ways to bring simple fall touches into your kitchen are by adding seasonal colors like reds, oranges, and yellows. Do this by incorporating a fall-themed table runner, kitchen towels, or a vase of seasonal flowers into your kitchen. Try decorating your kitchen with natural seasonal elements like mini pumpkins, gourds, or pinecones to create centerpieces and displays. Here is a roundup of some cozy fall kitchen tours to inspire you.
Colorful Fall Kitchen Counter Decor
Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, what better place to decorate? A simple vase of colorful leaves with a bowl of seasonal fruit is an easy way to decorate your kitchen for fall. Depending on the layout of your kitchen, an island, countertop, or open shelves are perfect for adding a fall arrangement.
You can also add seasonal colors and textures by adding woven placemats or hanging up a fall wreath over your kitchen cabinets. A trip to TJ Maxx or Home Goods will help you find beautiful fall decor to add finishing touches to your kitchen.
Easy Fall Kitchen Decorating
I’ve been obsessed with fall decor for many years. I love creating mini pumpkin arrangements, dough bowls, and mini wreaths for fall. Living in New England adds to the autumn charm. It certainly helps me get into a fall mood even more. I tend to lean towards harvest or rustic fall themes, using simple decor items. Here are some ways to create those looks.
Harvest Theme Kitchen
A harvest theme is perfect for displaying the bounty of the autumn. Here are some decor ideas for your kitchen island or countertop:
- A mix of fall fruits and vegetables, such as pumpkins, apples, and butternut squash, make a nice centerpiece. Arrange them in a dough bowl or on a farmhouse tray.
- Add some fall foliage to your kitchen decor by placing a ceramic vase of wooden spoons and autumn leaves on the counter.
- Try placemats in warm fall colors, such as deep orange, red, and brown.
- Group harvest-inspired decor together, in arrangements around your kitchen.
Rustic Theme Kitchen
A rustic theme can add warmth and coziness to your kitchen island decor. Here are some ideas to consider:
- Use a wooden cutlery caddy or cutting board as a centerpiece and surround it with pinecones, acorns, and other natural elements.
- Add some texture with a woven mat or straw tray.
- Use flower pots, vintage bottles, or oil cruets to round out your fall display.
- Include some rustic decor, such as a set of wooden spoons or a farmhouse-style basket.
Choosing Fall Colors for Your Kitchen
When choosing fall decor, select colors that work with your kitchen colors. If orange pumpkins aren’t your thing, pick white or blue pumpkins. Or, buy faux pumpkins in a variety of colors, materials, and styles
Warm fall colors are typically reds, oranges, and yellows and add a vibrant look. For a more subtle look, consider using shades of the same color, which works if you want your fall decor to blend in with your kitchen.
If you like a more subtle look, neutral tones like beige, tan, and brown are also nice color choices for fall kitchen decorations. These colors create a relaxing kitchen, perfect for enjoying a cup of cocoa on a cold autumn day.
To add visual interest to your fall kitchen, consider using different textures and materials. For instance, you could add a rustic fall table runner and a tiered tray to your table filled with freshly picked apples. Just don’t overwhelm your kitchen with too much decor. Simple touches like mason jars, pine cones, or faux pumpkins can really round out your fall kitchen decor.
