It’s no surprise that green Shaker kitchens are so popular among homeowners. After all, it’s the colour of life and vitality, acting as a beautiful natural accent that allows us to connect to the outside world from within our homely kitchens. This trend also stands the test of time and provides a polished appearance to complement the clean lines and exquisite craftsmanship that defines the traditional Shaker kitchen design.
Designing a green Shaker kitchen
As you can see with this gorgeous green Shaker kitchen design, the cabinets are hand-painted in a beautiful pale shade of green (Farrow & Ball ‘Old White’). What makes this hue especially visually appealing is how well it contrasts with the walls to create a crisp, clean kitchen. And as the kitchen overlooks the garden patio, the soft green shade is further enhanced by the greenery outside.
The green Shaker cabinetry not only gives the kitchen a light and airy feel, but it also breathes life into the space and creates a fresh, organic atmosphere that’s glorious for cooking, eating and socialising in. With integrated appliances helping to create a contemporary, streamlined finish, the green is further emphasised by the white countertops and metallic finishes.
The silver handles in two styles look perfect against the gentle green palette and add additional interest and sophistication. However, if you prefer a darker shade of green, like olive, then gold taps, handles and hinges would make more of a statement in your luxury Shaker kitchen.
From rich, emerald hues to soft sage shades, there are so many ways to use green in your Shaker kitchen.
