Trend Alert: Green Kitchen Cabinets
Designing kitchens is one of our favorite areas to work on. While kitchens need to be a practical area for food preparation, they can in fact be a fun and creative environment too! Colored kitchen cabinets are just one way to inject some personality into a kitchen, and we love to introduce different colors and materials into our kitchen designs for that reason. The latest interior design trend revolves around colorful kitchen cabinets, and that is – Green Kitchen Cabinets!
This Trend Alert focuses on Green Kitchen Cabinets as we share our top design tips and considerations to take into account when thinking of using green kitchen cabinets in your home. Let’s take a closer look!
Why we love green kitchen cabinets!
We love green kitchen cabinets because they inject color and personality into an otherwise sterile space. For many years in the early 2000’s, it was extremely popular to have sleek all-white kitchens and they were extremely cold and sterile feeling spaces. However, this lacked personality and creativity! And we are all about bringing a fun element into interior design, and color is a great starting point for this.
We regularly design kitchens for our clients that feature different colors and materials to help inject some visual interest and color into their homes. Green is a brilliant color to use – anywhere in the home actually – as it helps to bring nature inside. Many green colors are warming and help to create a “lived in” look.
How to use Green Kitchen Cabinets.
Adding green kitchen cabinets to your home is relatively straightforward!
If you have relatively new cabinets installed in your kitchen, you could get the cabinets re-sprayed to give them an entirely new look. This can however be on the costly side, so it’s important to consider every option available to you.
Alternatively, if you’re in the process of planning a new kitchen design it will be super easy to include green cabinets within it. Consider a few green paint color options before ordering your cabinets.
What to watch out for with Green Kitchen Cabinets
There are some considerations to take into account when considering green kitchen cabinets for your home…
Not all kitchen designs are suited for colored cabinets, and it’s important to consider all the materials intended for the space. Look at paint color options against the countertop, backsplash tile, and any other materials you plan on using in the space. Decide whether you want to be bold with a bright color, or more muted with a sage green instead.
It’s also important to explore multiple green color options for the cabinets, as each color may look slightly different when applied to a cabinet front than on a small sample.
Ways to make Green Kitchen Cabinets last in your home
Green Kitchen Cabinets can last a lifetime in your home!
As with any other design decision, it’s important to consider it carefully. Ensure you select a timeless green color for the cabinets, and one that will work perfectly with the other materials in the space. A timeless green color includes moss, olive, sage, forest green, and even army green!
Above all, make sure you absolutely love the color to ensure you will continue to love it for years to come!
