In a well-designed kitchen, both types of lighting should be possible: natural and artificial. Large windows that favor the entry of light during the day will not only save energy but will also make the interior look harmonious with the exterior view of the gardens.

Now, in the afternoons and evenings when you turn on the lamps, it is essential that they have yellow light bulbs instead of white light. This evokes a homey feeling that will turn your kitchen into a warm kitchen.

2. Colors

As you know, in the world of design you can talk about cool colors and warm colors. The use of a certain range of shades in wall paints and furniture can make a big difference in creating the atmosphere of a warm kitchen.

If you definitely want a warm and modern kitchen, the best thing to do is to include the following colors in some details. It can be on a single wall that stands out at sight, in the cabinet doors, towels and accessories, etc.:

  • Beige
  • Brown
  • Vinotinto
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Red

Unless you use them in matte tones, avoid very bright, cold and very light colors such as blue, white, green and purple. 

3. Materials

Do you know what is the quintessential material for the coziest spaces? Wood! If your home is adjusted to maintain a country style, you can think about installing natural or faux wood floors.

Likewise, a barn wood kitchen cabinet will be a very rustic detail that will function as a storage space and decorative accessory at the same time.

If you prefer to stay with a more sober and elegant style, you can still add some details in dark wood to favor the creation of a warm kitchen. For example, it will be easy to have wooden accessories such as chopping boards, knife holders, spice and condiment organizers, etc.   

Cabinets made of porcelain, glass or other materials can also look warmer if they maintain opaque and matte textures. 

4. Accessories

In kitchen design it is also important to include practical and aesthetically attractive accessories such as coffee makers, air fryers, electric ovens, machines for making cocktails, milkshakes or desserts, etc. Designating a space in the kitchen for this type of elements will give a homey touch to the place. 

In addition, there are tips that never fail when it comes to building cozy atmospheres, including a warm kitchen, for example:

  • Place a carpet.
  • Put in some decorative plants or even a stone wall or a floating garden.
  • Place a coffee table for breakfast (if you have an island or bar, you can put a fruit bowl and other small elements that complement the feeling of warmth).
  • Hang a painting with natural landscapes on one of the walls.
  • Install wall lights with yellow light
