Green Themed Kitchens with Polished Concrete Floors
Green, it’s a colour we associate with nature – its grasses, trees and plants. It is also symbolic of growth, and renewal, and has the ability to induce in us feelings of great tranquility, and a sense of deep calm
With such powerful associations, green may just be the perfect addition to the decor of any kitchen. Whether in a small city apartment or a sprawling country homestead, green will bring a sense of vitality and energy to one of the most important spaces of any home.
As a colour palette, green has undergone something of a transformation. Gone are the dull avocado greens of Grandma’s Kitchen, today’s green shades can be vibrant and bold, or elegant and understated. Whatever your preference, a green kitchen will create a warm and calming ambience that will have you slicing and dicing in a state of zen.
From mint green to deep jade to sage, when it comes to green kitchens, the choice is wide and varied. If you’re aiming for subtlety, stick to the grey greens. They’ll add an element of colour without overwhelming the space.
For a point of contrast in an all white kitchen, try painting your kitchen cabinets green. Green accents can also be a great way of introducing a touch of personality into your kitchen. Try painting the backing in your kitchen cabinet your preferred shade of green, and then introduce other green design elements through textiles and china.
If on the other hand, you’re fully committed to a green kitchen try a bolder, deeper shade of green, like emerald or deep jade on the walls or cabinets, and use brass finishings to complete the look. Consider using a high gloss lacquer finish on cabinetry to infuse the kitchen with energy and life.
If one shade of green is cool, then two shades of the colour is downright funky. Draw inspiration from wild nature itself, and use different shades of green on the walls and kitchen cabinets to create a sense of depth. Polished concrete floors will finish off a fresh, organic and energised space the whole family will enjoy.
