Green Kitchen Ideas: Inspiration For Your Home

Dark green shaker kitchen with island and white worktops

If Instagram is anything to go by, black and navy kitchens have taken the interiors world by a storm over the past few years, and they are here to stay! If you love heritage colours but want something a little different, we have rounded up a few of our favourite green kitchen projects to give you inspiration...

Create a contrast with a white worktop
When you opt for a dark heritage green such as Borough Market by Mylands, bright white cabinetry will create a striking contrast. The deeper green you choose, the more dramatic the contrast will be.

"The kitchen is not a serene space; it is full of hustle and bustle of daily family life, so clients are opting for darker, braver colour choices to reflect this." says Martin Bepey, Burlanes Sevenoaks Studio Manager.

Double up with two shades of green
Do not be afraid to use more than one tone of a particular shade. When carefully considered, tonal shades of the same colour create balance and interest to a space; particularly a kitchen.

The Wellsdown project in the heart of the East Sussex countryside is a great example of using tonal shades of green. The colours are Olive Colour and Tracery II by The Little Greene Paint Company.

Go subtle with sage
Sage green kitchens work perfectly for a classic and timeless look. The sage Wellsdown kitchen is handpainted in Sage Green by The Little Greene Paint Company. Sage green paired with a white worktop and classic appliances creates a real country kitchen feel to the space.

Bold and brass
Create a real striking design with a bold green and brass hardware like the London Townhouse Kitchen. 

"A bright, light kitchen is the perfect opportunity to create a bold look, that won't make the room feel small." says Helen Gulutu, Burlanes Chelmsford's Studio Manager. "Don't be afraid to take the plunge with brass handles too!"
