Cool Mint Green Kitchen
Fancy adding a touch of mint green to your kitchen but not sure how? Mint is no longer reserved for retro. With loads of different ways to add a touch of mint green to your kitchen, you don’t have to go “all-out” to add a splash of mint. In this blog post, we give you lots of ideas on how you can add mint green to your kitchen.
Mint Green Kitchen Cabinets
Go all-in, and try mint green on all your kitchen cabinets. To create a modern look like the one above, use simple flat-front cabinet doors and drawer faces. Choose cabinet fronts with recessed edge pulls to eliminate the need to add hardware. This will create a clean, uninterrupted band of mint green color, making it the focal point of the kitchen.
Pair your mint green kitchen cabinets with light wood or white marble countertops. Forgo upper cabinets, to create a minimal look. Keep any open shelves, backsplashes and trim above the countertops white to reinforce that open kitchen feeling. Light-colored or white floors will add visual balance.
Finish your cool mint green kitchen with a stainless steel sink and appliances. Add a few choice accessories in a complementary color such as orange, red or blue to complete the look.
Mint Green Countertops
Spruce up your kitchen cabinets with mint green countertops. Then furnish with a contrast color like bright red. The combination red/mint green is both retro and modern at the same time, and prevents the mint green from dominating too heavily. Choose large accessories like chairs, tables, window frames, etc to make sure the boldness of the contrast color prevails.
Make It Masculine
Contrast mint with checkered tiles in black and white and strong, masculine details like a French-style artisan clock. The black and white checkers bring out the darker side of mint, and the combination is chic, masculine and modern.
Bring Nature In
Pair your mint green kitchen with lots of fresh plants, flowers, and even rocks and stones. The fresh green contrasts well with the pastel mint, making the whole room feel fresh and clean – just what you want in your kitchen.
Accessorize With Mint
In this kitchen, an old window frame has been painted mint green, repurposed as a shelf unit, and placed against a contrast wall. Easy to do, effective, and chic and creates an instant eye-catcher in your kitchen.
Or, just add a few nostalgic mint green pendant lamps and make your kitchen instantly mint green modern.
Mint Green Tiles and Curtains
Take your accessories to the next level, and go for an accent wall with mint green tiles, paired with green curtains. By choosing tiles that cross over several hues, you are not bound by what the flair of the day is – rather you set your kitchen up for a more timeless look. Curtains can easily be changed out depending on what’s trending.
Contrast Your Mint
These days it’s all about contrast and with mint, it’s no different. Go rough, by contrasting your mint green cabinets with red brick walls. In this loft-style kitchen, the original brick walls have been preserved.
