If ever there were true representation of a fresh green Granny Smith apple, or a crystal clear Peridot, it would be this crisply composed kitchen palette, which boldly commits and adheres to the sophisticated color theme.
This light and airy kitchen is livened up by a bright pop of color, in this case a bright green on the base cabinets. Glass-front cabinets and a paneled and beamed ceiling serve to add extra character.
This cabin's new expanded kitchen features tons of countertop space, a centrally located island and modern appliances. The cabinet's weathered gray-green finish helps tie the room in with the rest of the home's rustic charm.
Pea green shaker style cabinets provide soft color without distracting from other elements of the kitchen. A simple rustic wood table serves as a kitchen island. A whitewashed vaulted wood ceiling makes the space feel airy and bright.
“Our client had the fantastic idea to use rolling tool cabinets in her kitchen,” says architect Nick Pancheau. “We designed a simple kitchen island combining seating and storage in a single movable piece. We selected a lime-green finish to match the fritted glass lamp shades made by the client; a subtle dark-green soapstone countertop rests atop the cabinets.”
Furniture-style cabinetry makes a bold statement in this dark green kitchen. The sturdy cabinet features create a visually interesting space while still retaining a simple elegance. Stainless steel appliances complement the gray countertops, and a pantry area features bright white double doors.
Light wash floors keep the space bright and airy, while lime green accents add a hint of color to the mostly white space. The renovation allowed the designers to increase the functionality of the kitchen, add a peninsula for seating and give the clients a large, open pantry that they coveted. For the design, the clients wanted to marry rustic and modern elements to create their dream kitchen.
This family-friendly kitchen emits cottage charm in a modern way. The center island is within easy reach of the kitchen's stainless steel range and side-by-side refrigerator. The island offers seating, counter space for prepping meals and a handy sink.
If your kitchen has good bones but simply looks tired, painting your cabinets can be just what the doctor ordered. Mix up colors on upper and lower cabinets, or on cabinets and islands as shown here, to add richness. These cabinets are painted in Windsurf from Behr Paints; the island is done in Snowy Pine and the walls are Spice Garden. Behr recommends using semi-gloss enamel for painting cabinets.
