30 Green Kitchen Ideas That Will Add A Pop Of Vibrancy To Your Home

Modern kitchens are typically neutral and feature white details. Even though white kitchens are timeless and stunning, you may want to consider a vibrant pop of color for the space. Adding a colorful element to your kitchen can help break up a primarily monochromatic design. A great color to implement in your kitchen is green; HGTV named it one of the best shades to paint the space. Perhaps this is because the color is soothing and known to relieve stress, and it reminds us of nature and plants. 

Green has also been known to motivate and liven moods, per Verywell Mind. And while it may not be obvious, green is a versatile color that complements many different textures, patterns, materials, and even other color palettes. Whether you're thinking about painting your whole kitchen or just adding a small green element, let the following pictures inspire you in your design choices.
