Green kitchen cabinets have been growing in popularity over the last few years, but they’ve been a classic cabinet color choice that homeowners and designers have returned to over and over again through the decades.
Green kitchen cabinets are definitely having a moment. Although this might seem like a bold color choice compared to a basic white kitchen, green kitchens have actually been something we’ve come back to again and again. As home design trends cycle through over the years, green is a kitchen color that we seem to keep coming back to over and over again. If you look at some of your favourite TV shows from the past, from The Brady Bunch to Friends, you might be surprised to realize that many of your favourite iconic television homes featured kitchens with green cabinetry. Green, in all its forms and shades, is such an easy color to live with; it’s no wonder that it’s become such a timeless choice for home decor.
We have the chance to visit so many beautiful homes for our interior photography business, Art & Spaces, and we’ve definitely noticed an increase in the number of people choosing green for their cabinetry color. I thought it would be fun to share a little inspiration from some of the real-life spaces and homes that we’ve visited recently for anyone thinking of choosing this fun, verdant color for their home.
