In most homes people spend a tremendous amount of time in their kitchen. For this reason, it is important to create a kitchen design that is welcoming and encourages people to visit one of the most used rooms in the house. Often people stick with colors such as white for both the wall and cabinet colors. With such a simple canvas it is easy to accessorize with bold and vibrant colors.
In recent years, if you have been following the kitchen design trend you will find that a lot of people are turning to different shades of green. People who have remodeled their kitchen with cabinets in light shades of green to deeper emerald green are posting the finished product on Instagram and other social media platforms. These photos demonstrate the various ways that this color, that is reminiscent of nature, can add a bold splash of color to a kitchen without being overpowering.
A proven benefit of using kitchen cabinets in colors, such as moss or emerald green, is that it will generate a more relaxing atmosphere. Complimentary colors that work well when designing a kitchen with green cabinetry include white and natural wood tones. These colors work best as an accent, floor, or wall colors.

The use of open shelves in white is another way to open and brighten the space.

RAL 6027 Light Green Kitchen Design - View in Color Chart
The beautiful glossy kitchen cabinetry in this design could almost be considered a mint green.

Narrow kitchens in a u-shape can feel claustrophobic if the overall design isn’t properly thought out. Having light-colored flooring, white walls and the glass doors allow for ample sunshine to come in lightening the room. The black band over the upper high gloss green cabinets makes for a dramatic statement in a rather simplistic, open concept kitchen.
