Designer Trend: Green Kitchens

Green has been on-trend for the last few years and is predicted to be popular in the years to come. Today on the blog, we explore how professional designers are using shades of green in their kitchen designs and how readers can follow suit.


According to Abbey Stark, Senior Interior Design Leader for IKEA US, green paint is one of the biggest trends of 2019. This news is not entirely surprising. Green is nature’s neutral and many of us look to this versatile hue to bring freshness, liveliness, and positive energy into our homes. If shades such as forest, mint, sage, emerald, and olive appeal to you, keep reading for tips on decorating your kitchen with green and some professional inspo.

Pulling off Green in Your Kitchen

Also according to Stark, shades of forest, mint, and sage are all trending colors for kitchen cabinetry. She suggests pairing green cabinets with gold, brass, or black matte handles for an effect that is timeless and chic. If you’re thinking about using green paint in your kitchen, don’t be afraid of a bolder look, which incorporates more than one shade of green.

    One of the first things i was taught in design school (and by a studio I apprenticed with during school) was to avoid Green in bathrooms, kitchens and dining areas. It gives skin and food a undesirable tint.
    Looks good in photos…but I still agree with what I was taught.
    Sorry but couldn’t help but comment on this.
