GOING GREEN: A FRESH KITCHEN MAKEOVER




I'm thrilled to unveil our latest kitchen makeover, a stunning blend of white and green that's both fresh and enduring. Our client had a clear vision—to embrace the popular green trend of 2024 while ensuring the design would stand the test of time.

We chose the earthy and charming Benjamin Moore Caldwell Green for the island, hood, and coffee bar area, adding a touch of green without overwhelming the space. Paired with crisp white cabinetry, the result is a kitchen that feels bright, inviting, and, most importantly, timeless.

 




 

If you're considering adding a touch of green to your kitchen, you're in luck! I'm here to share my top tips on making a timeless choice....



Choose Warm and Earthy Greens: Go for shades like sage, olive, or moss. They're like a warm hug for your kitchen, bringing in a sense of calm and connection to nature that feels timeless and inviting.


Select a Semi-Gloss or Satin Finish: These finishes not only add a subtle sheen that enhances the depth of the green colour but also make cleaning a breeze. Who doesn't want a kitchen that looks beautiful without much effort?


Mix Green with Whites and Rich Wood Stains: Achieve a harmonious look by blending green with white or cream cabinets and adding rich wood tones for accents. This approach creates a balanced and inviting space, ensuring your kitchen feels timeless and welcoming.


Pair Green Cabinets with Neutrals: Think of white, beige, or warm wood tones as the supporting actors that make your green cabinets shine. They create a harmonious backdrop that lets your green cabinets steal the show.


Use Warm Metal Finishes for Hardware: Brass or gold hardware adds a touch of glamour and sophistication to your green cabinets. It's like adding the perfect accessory to complete your outfit.


Opt for Light-Coloured Countertops and Backsplashes: Light colours reflect light and create a bright and airy feel in your kitchen. It's like bringing in a ray of sunshine, even on the cloudiest days.


Incorporate Natural Wood Tones: Add natural wood elements to your kitchen for a cozy and inviting atmosphere. It's like adding a touch of nature indoors, creating a space that feels warm and welcoming.


Ensure Ample Natural Light: Maximize natural light in your kitchen to enhance the beauty of your green cabinets. It's like adding a natural spotlight that highlights the best features of your kitchen.


Test Paint Swatches Before Committing: Before painting your cabinets, test different green shades to find the perfect one for your space. It's like trying on different outfits before a big event—you want to make sure it's just right.
