Are you planning on undergoing a kitchen renovation later on in the year and need some inspiration?
Green is coming out at the top of the colour charts right now, especially in the kitchen, ranging from light sage to deep forest green. Here are some ideas to get you started...
Create a green splashback

A good way to subtly introduce green into your kitchen space, choose a green splashback. You can tailor the shade and tone of green to your scheme and can even opt for intricate patterned designs to add even more interest.
Go bright or go home

Take inspiration from the brave decorators out there and opt for something bright and bold. These kitchen cupboards and dining table have been painted with Annie Sloan's Antibes Green for a totally unapologetic green look. We love the way that the vibrant cupboards have been perfectly balanced out with the more neutral marble countertops.
Contrast with black

Dark interiors are becoming more desirable than ever and the trend has definitely made its way into the kitchen. Contrast your green kitchen with black to bring a sense of drama to the space. Granite worktops are a great option as they're durable and are sure to last. Finish with matt black appliances and accessories to give your kitchen that modern and sleek edge.
Accessorise with green
A less forthright approach is accessorising your kitchen space with green accessories, as well as real-life greenery such as plants and foliage. If you've decorated your kitchen in a neutral palette, green might be the perfect accent colour. After all there's nothing more fresh and clean than a white and green combination.
Choose forest green

Navy kitchens are all the rage but if you fancy something a little different but in the same realm, then forest green could be the perfect colour option for you. Pair it with blush pink and natural wood to soften the look and accessorise with gold for an even more on-trend look.
