How to Introduce Natural Elements to Your Kitchen Design

For a while now, kitchens have been the most important rooms in any house. This is where the family gathers to prepare delicious food, where couples come to grab a glass of wine after a long day and where kids sneak in to steal a cookie or two. Many kids use kitchens to do their homework; people watch each other do magic with simple ingredients; and friends share midnight secrets—all of those kitchen activities can be made better with a kitchen that’s filled with comforting natural elements. If you want to add a touch of Mother Earth to your kitchen, here are a few ideas to consider:


Use earthy colors
Probably the easiest way to make your kitchen more peaceful and natural is to update your wall color. If you’re craving a soothing place where you can experiment with dishes and enjoy them, consider nature-inspired colors like neutral, earthy tones. Think taupe, beige, gray and greige—all of these have a calming aura. No matter if you’re choosing to go a simple route with paint for your walls, or if you want to add a touch of interest with tiles, wallpaper or even wooden or stone panels, opt for colors that are commonly present in nature, and you’ll manage to create a wonderfully relaxing backdrop for all your kitchen activities.

Add some wood to the design
Today, natural wood furniture is big in interior décor, and if you want to hop on this trend, the kitchen offers the best opportunity for such a thing. While natural wood cabinets are functional and pretty, they are expensive, so if that’s out of your price range, you can opt for a natural wood table or chairs. You can also introduce wood through kitchen islands, countertops and light fixtures in an easy and cost-effective way. And you don’t have to turn your kitchen into a barn or cabin-style space with wood all around—one or two elements in natural wood are all you need for that warm and elegant feel.


Marble for countertops and backsplash
This is a classic for a reason since nothing beats a gorgeous marble countertop or backsplash. This stone has beautiful and intricate veins that add interest to any room and make it look elegant, expensive and elevated. Finding a respected natural stone supplier to provide you with your marble slabs is crucial because you want only the best pieces for your interior. From very simple and muted Royal Beige Marble to intricate and dramatic Rosso Levanto Marble, this stone will instantly improve your interior and introduce a different side of nature to your space—the one that looks delicate but is actually durable, indestructible and resilient to almost everything.


Create a green wall
This is one of the hottest trends in interior design right now, and one perfect for kitchens. If you want to add some natural greenery to your space, don’t use that premium counter space, but utilize your walls instead. You can opt for natural green wall designs with moss, succulents and other low-maintenance plants. Some people love to cook with fresh herbs, so instead of decorative plants, you can create an indoor vertical garden and mix beauty with practicality.

Let the sun inside
In order to brighten up your kitchen and introduce a touch of blue skies and sunlight to your space, why not install a skylight? This ceiling addition is a great way to get some morning or evening sun to your space and make it look bright and airy, which is especially beneficial for small and stuffy kitchens. A combination of a green wall and a skylight can be perfect—the sun makes the herbs grow and together, they can brighten up the space without too much artificial light.


Use the right fabrics
You will need a lot of fabric for your kitchen, so consider the right materials. Instead of using synthetic tablecloths, dish towels, upholstery and window treatment, you can opt for cotton, hemp and linen. These natural fabrics have a much more elegant and expensive look and are also more durable, so if you’re into sustainability, check the tags when buying fabrics.

Use these beautiful and easy tips to green up and naturalize your kitchen and you’ll be more than happy with the results. You’ll love all the relaxation and peace of your new and improved kitchen!
