Green Kitchens – 29 Inspirational Green Kitchen Ideas

Pete Helm Photography / Hush Kitchens

Green kitchens have become popular in the past couple of years and their popularity has not shown any signs of waning. Green is associated with nature and symbolizes balance, growth, renewal, and harmony, and it can be a refreshing, calming, and invigorating color, making it the perfect choice for the toughest workroom in the house.

From forest green and emerald green to olive and sage, it is not at all surprising that this versatile color has become the color of choice in a modern kitchen.

Green has truly become the new neutral, and it works equally well in both contemporary and traditional kitchens. There are not many colors no Go with green, but standout pairs include white, gray, pink, and black.

While luxurious dark green kitchens paired with marble countertops and copper details dominate our Instagram feeds, soft wise green kitchens paired with more natural textures and materials exude calm and serenity, perfect for working in the vibrant direction.

And remember that a green kitchen does not necessarily mean wall-to-wall color. For a simple change of switches, create a contrast between high and low cabinetry banks, or focus accents by adding splashes of color to cabinet knobs, tapestries, and crockery. You can also enter the green environment through distinctive small appliances such as a toaster, kettle or blender.

Whether you choose to use green on its own or as an accent color, we hope our green kitchen ideas will give you plenty of inspiration.
