Today I want to show you how I decorate my small kitchen for fall.
I love fall and I actually start to enjoy cooking again as soon as the weather turns. There is nothing worse than having a messy, unorganized kitchen when I am in the mood to bake bread and make my favorite Beef Bourguignon in the Instant Pot!
So in order to decorate my small kitchen for fall, I had to go through everything and do a little purging and organization.
Welcome to the Celebrating Fall Blog Hop, and thank you to Leen at Sanddollar Lane for this amazing collaboration of bloggers sharing the most beautiful Fall Home Tours.
Small Kitchen Disclaimer
I want to be very transparent about this. My small kitchen is hardly ever picture perfect. I go through it every season and purge and organize and it’s fine for a time, but inevitably it gets crowded again and it’s easier to keep bread and fruit out on the countertop.
So don’t think that your home has to be picture perfect all the time. It’s not possible in my house.
Small Kitchen Solutions
- Hang open shelving and lower cabinets in the dining area if you have space
- Create a separate coffee bar with storage to save space in the kitchen
- Add a pot hanger (even if you don’t hang pots from it)
In my small kitchen, I had a dining area that was kind of wasted space and I knew I could do a small Kitchen Remodel on a Budget I added lower cabinets and hung long open shelves the length of the wall. I wanted the space for function and to be able to have a space to display my decor and vintage finds.
It also serves a dual purpose as my tea and coffee bar. I couldn’t love it more!
I keep my coffee, tea, honey, and electric water kettle there and it saved so much space in the kitchen.
I can fit lots of pumpkins in this space!
This Elegant DIY Copper Pot Hanger is perfect to hang teacups and other things I wanted to hang as well.
Small Kitchen Fall Edition
A lot of my DIYs end up in my kitchen and this year’s additions are so cute!
These leftover florals and picks from Hobby Lobby in this basket give this corner a little extra character. You can see how I made the Easy Wheat and Floral Decor in the amber glass.
I used the Simple Fall Pumpkin Farmhouse Sign to cover the outlet and hide my speaker and dot chords, and I have to incorporate some of my blue and white decor!
These pumpkin mugs are from Dollar General and are the perfect pottery barn dupe!
A few years ago I found these corbels and they are the perfect bookends to my favorite go-to cookbooks!
I use these cookbooks all winter long!
I don’t want to live in a world without vintage brass and copper, and luckily I don’t have to! Adding brass candlesticks and copper pots with wood tones can give your small kitchen such a warm cozy feeling.
I started using this beautiful cutting board that my dad made for me as an oven cover. I use it as my “kitchen is closed” signal. When my kitchen is clean and the dishes are done and I don’t want anyone making a mess. I will report back if it works! LOL
I have two corners in my kitchen and that makes it hard to find interesting ways to decorate. I try to keep it as simple as possible.
Battery-operated, remote-controlled under-cabinet lighting is so helpful when you didn’t have a way to hard wire lights. Also, battery-operated candles are a must for nighttime ambiance!
Bringing in golds, and warm amber colors are accentuated by the wood tones and coppers. I made these arrangements Easy Wheat and Floral Decor For Fall Decorating a few weeks ago and they are so easy and add so much to the look of my fall kitchen!
Here it is looking so cozy! Now, I think I will send everyone on vacation so I can be alone in my clean house for a few days!
Do you ever get to keep a clean house?
