Welcome to our site where you will find beautifully decorating and functional green kitchens. Using the color green is a great way to bring the outdoors inside. It can make a kitchen feel fresh and calming, especially when using shades like sage or mint. If you want to go bolder side, a deep hunter or olive green will do the trick.

7. Old-World Inspired Moss Green Kitchen
This is probably my favorite green kitchen example in this gallery. I love the British racing green which actually works well as a dominant interior color for cabinets. The inlays stand out nicely and enhance the design. Aside from the color scheme, the size of the kitchen is massive – like a small apartment. It includes a very cool bench dining area. The only thing I don’t care about in this kitchen is the floor. I’m not big on the tile. I believe a mid-tone hardwood would look much better. You?
8. Mint Green Country-Influenced Kitchen
Here’s an old traditional kitchen design with light green cabinetry that looks okay with the light wood countertops. There’s an old vintage oven and range. The red tile flooring isn’t so good though – the floor would be much better if natural wood.
9. Classic Hunter Green Single-Wall Kitchen
Classic hunter green color dominates this stunning single wall kitchen. Gorgeous marble countertops and backsplash are the perfect fit with the deep green tones and brass hardware. Weathered wood flooring and a rustic dining table, used as an island, bring a natural element to the design. An open ledge-shelf across the wall provides a place to display collectibles or vintage art in this case.

This industrial-style loft apartment features a single-wall kitchenwith a solid green accent wall, paired with white lower cabinets. Textured beige concrete floors and painted brick walls, along with black cage-like upper shelving give it that industrial feel.
11. Sage & Moss Green Monochromatic Kitchen
Gorgeous light sage shaker cabinets paired with a dark moss brick wall backsplash, creates a cohesive and monochromatic kitchen design. White countertops contrast well against the green tones and open shelving on the right side of wall displays the lovely dish-ware and pottery collection. Three white pendant lights hang above the sink for task lighting and art creatively leans on the counter against the wall for interest.
12. Cozy Modern White & Green Kitchen
California cool vibes in this green and white crisp kitchen. Dark wood floors and light wood island bring in a natural element and contrast well against the gorgeous green shaker cabinets.

14. Lime Green Galley Kitchen
I’m on the fence here. I don’t mind the green. I like the kitchen design for the small space. I think there’s too much of green – if the end cabinets were white, it would lessen the overbearing effect of the green.
15. Rich & Rustic-Inspired Green Kitchen
Another gorgeous monochromatic green kitchen design that feels a bit rustic. Shaker front doors and brass hardware are paired with a white apron-front sink. The brick wall is painted in the same green tone as the cabinets and copper pendant lights contrast well and add task lighting.
Why Green Kitchens?
Green can be an excellent color to introduce into your new kitchen design, but it can also be a bit challenging to find complementary pieces because of green’s position on the color wheel. Whether you’re looking for a beach-house aesthetic or a more serious stately dining room, green has a lot of possibilities if you’re willing to work to make them look good.
In our survey of kitchens, green was one of the rarer color themes, with only 1.29% of kitchens featuring the color. In our view, you need two general ideas to make green work in your kitchen: taking cues from nature, and sticking to a unified aesthetic.
Take Cues From Nature
- Make sure that objects’ textures match their hue
- Work with your natural light sources to accentuate brighter colors
- Avoid dark and matte greens unless you have a strong top-down, artificial light
In nature, we see greens flourishing near browns like wood and other shades of green. Try to pair lighter shades of green like lime with slightly darker shades of brown or beige, just like you’d see in a bamboo tree.
Don’t forget; you can do even more than take cues from nature: you can steal some of nature, and put it right into your kitchen! A green-themed kitchen can often get even perkier with the inclusion of a few houseplants, though the exact plant that you pick will need to vary with your exact kitchen.
Stick To A Unified Aesthetic
It’s easy to get distracted when you’re planning out a green-themed kitchen. Often, it helps to remember that the color of your cabinets and the color of your countertops are going to be the biggest ways that you express your chosen color in your kitchen’s design.
As mentioned earlier, darker greens are more challenging to work with, so if you choose to use them, maybe try using them in a less dominant position, like as a cabinet interior instead of an exterior. Don’t worry about going too wild with the lighter greens—often a teal-colored floor tiling can complement green cabinets or countertops rather than take away from it thanks to the wonderful way that light can reflect off of the surfaces.
