Beautiful Cozy Kitchen in 4 Simple Steps

Add Subtle & Creative Accessories

Minimalist and contemporary kitchen designs are always popular, but they can feel a little cold. By adding accessories to your kitchen, you can give it a personal touch and make it feel much cozier. From family photos and kid’s artwork to vases and fresh-cut flowers, accessories will enhance your style and reflect your personality.

My husband I put together a “Coffee Bar” over one section of cabinets & counter we have in our kitchen. It's both functional and reflects our personalities. It has his favorite bar essentials, while still showcasing my morning routine.

Get Creative with Your Windows

Choosing the right window treatments will give you the opportunity to make your cozy kitchen a warmer and more inviting place to be. For kitchen curtain ideas, take a look at café kitchen styles and valances. As café kitchen curtains typically cover the lower half of the window, you can add extra coverage with a valance and still let light into the room.

Alternatively, choose fabric blinds in any color or pattern you choose to give your kitchen a warmer feel. With a kitchen blind, you can keep fabrics well out of the way when you’re preparing food or cooking but still benefit from the cozy feel they bring to the room. 

During the holidays you can put garlands, buntings, etc to change up the style if you want. You can also get curtains that go with the kitchen, but still work with the change in the seasons as well.

Utilize Furniture In All Spaces

If you have a smaller kitchen in your home, you may not have room for a dining table and chairs. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate furniture in your kitchen. Adding a comfy chair means your partner, friends or kids can join you when you’re cooking and it’s the perfect place to start the day with a hot cup of coffee. 

For larger spaces, adding a dining table or a selection of chairs will make your cozy kitchen a place to relax and spend time together. As kitchens typically feature hardwoods, metals and plastics, the added element of fabric brings more texture to the room and helps it to feel more welcoming.

Lighting Makes A Difference

Although you’ll need brighter lights for preparing and cooking food, you can opt for more dimming type of lighting when you’re undertaking simple tasks or relaxing in your kitchen with friends and family. Lighting can drastically transform any room, so take the time to find fittings, fixtures or shades that work with your style.

In addition to this, make sure you choose the right bulbs to create the perfect ambiance for your cozy kitchen. Cool, white lights will add brightness and illuminate the room, but they won’t necessarily feel warm or cozy. With a warmer light bulb, you’ll still get added brightness but the room with be bathed in a soft glow too.

Minor Upgrades Make Big Differences

Having a cozy kitchen doesn’t mean you need to do a full renovation or remodel. With some minor modifications and tweaks, you can create ambiance and have your kitchen feeling cozier and calmer in minutes.

I am a wife and mother of two sons. We live in Rural Northeast Ohio with our 2 cats, 2 dogs & many fish. I love all things Supernatural, Harry Potter, elephants, sunflowers, crystals, occult, crafting, coffee, wine, and online shopping. Have a TikTok, PokemonGo & Elder Scrolls addiction, I've always loved plants, recently I became a houseplant mom, and am currently growing over 15 varieties in our home! Now if I could get my outside gardens to flourish I will be happy. When I'm not tending to the home, pets, plants, or hanging out on the couch catching up on my shows, I'm doing some type of crafting or DIY project. (Or I'm pestering my husband in the barn.)
