Add some seasonal touches to your kitchen

It’s that time of year to embrace the cold, and as we enjoy the upcoming holidays we are looking at quick seasonal updates to adapt your kitchen ready for autumn.

But don’t think you need a total kitchen revamp, with these simple steps and useful hacking tips your kitchen will be left looking and feeling like a whole new space.

The simplest of steps is a lick of paint. Pick a feature wall in your kitchen, maybe between your kitchen cabinets, around your window or as a centre piece above your oven, therefore doubling up as a splashback. A set of autumn paint colours inspired by warm earth tones of falling leaves, including browns, yellows, oranges and bold reds will work beautifully.

Go one step further and accessorise with appliances, crockery and dining sets in the same hues.

Take advantage of the abundance of fallen leaves and collect them to make some beautiful unique pieces for your kitchen. You could even get the kids or grandchildren involved. Use an old vase and glue the rich orange and red leaves around it then seal with a PVA glue, once dry use this as a table centre piece or a container for utensils.

Finally put your apron on and get the beautiful smell of ginger and cinnamon running through your kitchen by baking, don’t forget to send your pictures into @MagnetUK
