Ideas for kitchens with a green benchtop
WHY CHOOSE A GREEN BENCHTOP?
It is a fashionable colour that you will never tire of, because a green kitchen benchtop provides calm and tranquility and its appearance is timeless, in keeping with any decorative style that you may select.
A SYMBOL OF LUXURY
Did you know why green is the colour of hope? Green is seen as the colour of hope because it represents harmony, luxury and freshness You can make your kitchen look even better with a green kitchen benchtop, as well as with a vertical garden or an urban mini-garden.
CREATING A SENSE OF DEPTH
Dark green kitchen benchtops are on-trend, as they are colourful but with a touch of sobriety. Light, contrasting shades must be used in order to achieve depth. This is a very useful tip to visually enlarge the space.
WHAT COLOURS DO I MIX IT WITH?
Green is the result of mixing blue and yellow, so combining it with one of these two colours is a very good choice. Also with wood and white or another light neutral tone, such as beige or soft grey. A few dare to combine it with red, as it creates a striking contrast.
TOO MUCH DARK GREEN IS NOT A GOOD THING
Cold colour ranges tend to enlarge spaces, but in the case of the green kitchen benchtops, they are dark and can catch the light, so try to avoid the darker tones if you want a bright kitchen .
