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.
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.”
Beautiful dark green lower cabinetry and an island give this kitchen depth and gravitas. The delicate glass pendants and glass-front upper cabinets, all in fresh white, make sure the space also feels light and bright.
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.
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.
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.
