Picking the right color for your kitchen is a task that is difficult at the best of times when you have clarity regarding the style you want in there. Things get a bit more confusing when you move away from the more popular hues like white, blue, gray and cream in the kitchen and delve into the exotic worlds of greens. Evoking the image of lush green forests and nature at its unbridled best, darker shades of green can be absolutely mesmerizing when used right. Adapting to different styles and settings, it is easy to work with dark and deep greens when you know precisely how you wish to shape the area around it.

The best dark green kitchens use the color in a judicious manner and it is often used in spaces that are removed from the living area. This is in contrast with the modern trend of adapting an open plan kitchen that feels like an extension of the living area. Energetic, classy and even eclectic when it needs to be, this is a look at the best kitchens in dark green that we could gather from all over the planet. Enjoy!

Dark Green and White Kitchens

If there is one color that perfectly complements dark green in the kitchen, then it is undoubtedly white. A popular choice in this section is the blend of dark green kitchen cabinets and walls with a white backsplash, countertops in white and a ceiling in white. This is the most referred ‘formula’, but you can tweak it easily to ensure it fits with the style that you have chosen for the kitchen. Using marble to bring in the white element also is a smart idea in the contemporary kitchen. It adds a sense of sophistication without altering the color palette. Adding marble doesn’t have to be expensive either—marble contact paper can easily be used on laminate counters or as a backsplash.
