Dark, dramatic and sophisticated greens
Furniture in deep, dark tones is the strongest. We usually see them in spacious kitchens with large spaces and windows. Why? The answer is simple: these tones tend to darken the spaces and overload its. Take that into account when choosing this color!
Are you determined to bet on these shades? You should know, then, that they fit perfectly both in rustic and traditional style kitchens as well as in modern kitchens. In a rustic or traditional style space green kitchen cabinets with a matte finish and moldings become the best alternative. Combine them with large furniture with a showcase or shelves in the upper part that lighten the whole and bet on dark wooden floors to finish the whole.
Do you want to give your kitchen a more modern style? Go for simple furniture with some shine and try using two shades. White contrasts with the deeper tones, illuminating the kitchen, while black contributes to drama and sophistication. Regardless of what combination you're betting on, combine cabinets with a tile floor to create that contemporary look you're after.
Medium greens, the most daring
Are you willing to risk? To achieve a unique and singular kitchen your best alternative is to bet on green kitchen furniture with medium tones. These greens, more acidic and / or intense, fit perfectly in contemporary kitchens, combined with fittings and taps in gold, bronze or copper tones.
It is common for these kitchen furniture to be combined with others that contrast in color. At Decoora we especially like the combination of these with gray tones that provide a certain sobriety to the whole. Although if you want to create a unique and original space, blues and pinks can become your best asset.
Sage green, a classic
Contrary to dark colors, light tones such as sage green are more suitable for decorating small kitchens with little natural light. In this type of kitchen, what we want to play with light colors is to gain luminosity and thereby visually enlarge the space.
We have talked about sage green, but we can achieve the same results with other pastel shades like this one. Very popular shades in kitchens of homes with a country or vintage style which today can also be used to create modern and minimalist kitchens.
In the former, the country-style ones, fit especially well the kitchen furniture with metal moldings and handles. Go for base cabinets with light-colored countertops and place open wooden shelves on top to add a rustic touch and organize kitchenware and daily utensils. And replace these shelves with matching display cabinets if you want to recreate the style of a more stately country house.
In those with a modern and minimalist style, on the other hand, bet on cabinets with a clean aesthetic and hidden handles. Combine lower and upper cabinets in tone or contrast, opting in the latter case for light wood cabinets that add warmth to the kitchen.
When setting up a green kitchen, the main thing is to be sure of the decision to make. Just as neutral colors go unnoticed, greens have a lot of personality and can get tired over time. You dare?
