Dark olive cabinetry, statement marble surfaces, aged metal finishes and organic artisan decor are all working hard to create the ultimate green kitchen in 2024.
We look at how you can welcome this edgy look into your kitchen…
Working with compact dimensions? Why not use the same shade of green on your walls, ceiling and cupboards, to create the illusion of more space and achieve a cohesive scheme? Here, Devol has paired its Classic English kitchen with veiny Arabescato marble worktops, splashbacks and a fluted sink, as well as beautiful brass accents and a selection of vintage pictures to help soften the look.
Add a country twist
Add a nostalgic country twist to your kitchen with a freestanding wooden island. We love the luxurious hue of the Spring Green Haddon units by Burbidge Kitchen Makers. Add stone flooring, traditional light fittings and an iconic Aga range cooker for yet more character. And, for a final flourish, hang copper pots and pans on brass kitchen rods.
This modern rustic scheme by Second Nature includes elegant Crathorne Shaker-style cabinetry in Regents Green. The integrated pantry – packed with crockery, cookbooks and potted herbs – livens up the space and adds a touch of warmth and personality. And we absolutely love the tiled chimney breast. It is decorated with patterned designs, while gold grout creates a seamless link with the other metallic elements throughout the space.
Pared-back dark green kitchen
If you prefer a pared-back look, zellige tiles are a great alternative to statement stone. The white glazed tiles create the perfect backdrop for a display of artisan kitchenware and fun, quirky kitchenalia on the green open shelving.
All about multi-functionality
Create an inviting and sociable space with the help of a hardworking layout, complete with a home bar and a grand central island. The designers at Herringbone Kitchens chose a moody shade of green for the floor-to-ceiling and under-counter cabinetry, which is complemented beautifully by authentic marble surfaces, and polished brass handles and light fixtures.
Go for a tranquil look
Green oozes a sense of tranquillity, making it ideal for a busy, hard-working kitchen or utility space. The St Giles design by Naked Kitchens mixes green and grainy wood units with a neutral painted panelled splashback, a slim worksurface and a beautiful fluted butler sink, creating a simple and serene scheme.
Mix and match green shades
Have you ever considered using colour to zone your space? Paint the main run of cabinets in a light shade of green and choose a deeper, earthy hue on your island to visually section off different areas in your kitchen.
Fill your kitchen with light
Expansive glazing and cleverly placed skylights can help to balance out a dark-green kitchen, while creating an indoor- outdoor link. The abundant source of natural light in this design, which features Harvey Jones’s Shaker collection painted in a luxurious shade of green, ensures the space feels calming and grounding.
Timeless dark green kitchen
If you don’t dare to go bold but still want to subtly embrace green in your kitchen, why not create a feature wall by painting a run of cabinets in this nature-inspired shade? The two-tone design by Masterclass Kitchens features Hardwick Shaker cabinetry in New Forest, which is a dark green, and Highland Stone, a creamy beige. For a pared-back aesthetic, play with neutral tones and complete the look with traditional touches.
Forget sticking to single-tone finishes in your kitchen and welcome mixed metals in 2024. Add visual interest with statement stainless-steel range cookers with gold trims, gunmetal kitchen rods or sleek brassware.
