4 Ways to Brighten Your Kitchen in the Winter

Posted on: January 3, 2018

While many of us welcome the change of pace and scenery that winter can provide, there’s honestly no denying that the season can be fairly drab at times. If the constant clouds and stagnant surroundings of your home are getting you down there’s only one thing to do. Make a change. Create your own brightness. Need a few good ideas? The design experts at Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens can point you in the right direction.

If you’re looking for design and renovation services to brighten your kitchen this winter season, then you’ve come to the right place. Contact the specialists at Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens online today to learn more or connect with an expert designer near you!

Begin with Natural Light

There’s little that can match the warm glow of the sun, and most homeowners still lack a fair bit of access to proper natural light. Looking into companies like MWT Windows ( and getting them to update your existing windows (or even add in new windows), removing your screens, or changing your window treatments to be less obstructive can make a world of difference in how you look at and feel in your space.

Improve Your Kitchen Lighting

Natural light is a great place to start, but as we all know well, there’s not always much of it to be had during the winter months. We’ve already had more cloudy days than clear. So, what’s left for you to do but create your own light? A new lighting design that incorporates better track and task lighting can make all of the difference, brightening your kitchen and helping your lighter color tones to pop.

Update Appliances & Kitchen Linens

A more modern kitchen space using steel appliances can bring something exciting and new into your space, helping to lighten things up and renew your interest in the space. If you’re in need of an even simpler fix, look to linens or perhaps floor mats and rugs. Changing a monochrome color scheme to something lightly patterned can make a big change with little fuss.

Reexamine Your Colors & Kitchen Design

You can fill a space with all of the light you can muster, and it still might do little against deeper earthy tones, blacks, or dark woods. This may be the opportunity for a renovation or redesign that you’ve been looking for. Consider custom cabinets made of lighter woods for a brighter space, as well as improved storage space and kitchen functionality. Installing a brighter backsplash is an easy and cost-efficient change to make.
