How to Bring Nature into a New Kitchen Design

Bringing natural elements into your home is a growing trend in design. There are plenty of ways to bring organic elements into your kitchen design, through houseplants, cabinetry, and more! Incorporating nature into your home design can help you feel relaxed and more in tune with your surrounding environment. Are you planning to remodel your kitchen in Washington, D.C.? Consider the following tips from Signature Kitchens, Additions, and Baths!

Natural Materials

When it comes to custom cabinetry, a natural look is an on-trend must for any contemporary kitchen remodel. The Stoney Brook Collection by Medallion Cabinetry is patterned after nature’s warmest hues and richest textures. Subtle greys and browns give the impression of stone and trees. Rich textures can be achieved by brushing multiple glazes on a stained surface, leaving you with beautiful custom cabinetry that calls to mind cobblestone, shale, and more. Plus, using a mixture of textures across your kitchen remodel will create depth and a rustic, natural feel.

Keep Your View Green

House plants are a great way to bring the outdoors inside. In your kitchen, consider hanging planters or large plants in the windows to keep the greenery in your view even when the yard is covered in snow. A good mix of succulents, blooms, and tropical plants will give you a bright variety of sizes and shapes to add natural and contemporary flair to your kitchen.

Maximize Natural Light

What’s better than a flood of natural light in your kitchen while you make the morning coffee or prepare dinner? Large windows and skylights are a great way to maximize natural light and breathe life into any kitchen remodel. Sliding glass doors out to your patio or garden can help to soften the boundary between indoors and outdoors, creating a natural feel that allows you to entertain and enjoy your garden from the kitchen easily.

Creative Decor

Use natural elements around you to create unique decor for your kitchen. Collecting objects like pinecones, acorns, branches, and even wildflowers can help you create beautiful centerpieces that will add visual interest and a unique touch to your home. You can even keep naturally themed dishes or china on display in glass-front cabinetry or a statement cabinet in order to add a botanical element to the kitchen. What better way to bring nature into your kitchen than by using the natural world around you?
