Green is clearly enjoying the moment right now. From poachers to olives, greens are increasingly popular in every room in the house – but we can’t do it in the kitchen. Color that embodies renewal, rejuvenation, and energy, green is more than just a passing trend. While it gives a modern feel to the kitchen, it can also feel as traditional and classic.
If you are bored with white kitchen trends, here are 18 kitchen ideas to inspire you to be environmentally friendly.
1. Green and Black Mable
The stunning kitchen design from cecy_j_interiors has a mixed material design with classic black marble, old wood and muted gray green cabinets that all play very well together.
This green color is a bit understated and is a good choice if you want to create a more traditional green kitchen look that won’t feel outdated in a few years.
2. A Pop of Aqua
The rich and bold colors of this cupboard seen in this kitchen from Barabrune are a great choice if you want to be great with color. Jewel tones feel saturated and glamorous, and work very well in this kitchen. Choose a white or wooden table to keep the kitchen chic and classic.
3. Pair With Bold Backsplash
In some ways, green is one of the “go big or go home” colors. Even in the most subtle colors, green is quite prominent (in a nice way) so why not look to the next level with bold geometric backsplash tiles, like this one from the design and construction instructions?
Want something a little firmer? Green backsplash is also a great way to get a green kitchen look without painting your cabinets.
4. Keep It Open
The green color inspired by the shamrock in the kitchen of Bridgetmarie24 is bright and the center of attention – but because it is only at the bottom of the cabinet, it is not excessive. Choosing an open kitchen rack is a great way to reduce vivid color.
5. Add Wallpaper
We couldn’t get enough of this kitchen check from fromgrittopearl. Not only does the happy emerald green display in the closet, but the black-and-white wallpaper provides beautiful contrast and acts as a focal point in the kitchen.
By keeping countertops and backsplash simple and neutral, the rest of the kitchen can really shine.
6. Layer Shades of Green
When done correctly, you can easily experiment with various shades of green throughout your kitchen. This room from devolkitchens has a dark green cupboard that is paired with green on the wall. When mixing green, choose green with a similar tone so it doesn’t collide.
7. Mix Green and Wood Tones
This modern kitchen from girlandgrey features a combination of elements of green hunter and natural wood to give a modern medieval look and feel. Between the muted hunter green cabinet color and the golden starburst overhead lighting, we can’t decide what we like best about this space.
