Sorry, Kermit, but we're going to have to disagree with you: It's very easy being green — especially when it comes to your kitchen. In case you didn't get the memo, your culinary space is a lot more than a place to uncork a bottle of wine or heat up last night's leftovers. It's where your family and friends come together for dinner parties, family meals, or casual nights in. Simply put, it's the heart (and, yes, the stomach) of your home. And what better color to paint your walls, cabinets, or island than a hue that is often associated with renewal and growth?
But if you've ever sifted through paint swatches before, you know that one shade of green does not fit all. Every hue features different undertones and nuances that can completely transform the mood of your kitchen. So to make it easy on you, here are seven paint colors that will result in the picture-perfect green kitchen you've been dreaming of.
At first glance, you might think that the cabinets in this green kitchen designed by Amber Lewis are gray. But in reality they're a dark sage, which is perfect for anyone who traditionally steers away from bright colors. And thanks to the marble backsplash, wooden shelving, and brass hardware, this deep hue acts as a neutral.
Want to flex your DIY muscles without embarking on a messy paint job? You might want to consider investing in green-colored cabinets like Kristina and Diana from Kreswell Interiors did in this chic kitchen. An ideal option for anyone who really loves the color green and doesn't want to worry about any unwanted streaks or chips as you revive your space.
As interior designer Amy Sklar proves, you don't need a bright, bold hue to make a statement. The light mint she used in this green kitchen adds a subtle pop that contrasts against the white farmhouse sink and countertops without commanding too much attention. The result? A laidback, California-cool cook space.
