Earthy and natural, or fresh and invigorating, green in its many guises is proving popular with homeowners when renovating their kitchens – we round up 10 green kitchen ideas to inspire you with your own designs.

1. Ashton is a country-style kitchen from Crown Imperial, styled in a solid wood, with a raised and fielded centre panel. The L-shaped layout is presented in Emerald, featuring a ‘must have’ organised larder and elegant glass display cabinets. The focal island is designed in subtle Grey Aqua, with a mix of open and closed storage. Inspired by nature, the new Emerald shade is also available across the Aspen, Midsomer, Rimano and Shenaya collections. The flexible colour palette has a choice of green hues to suit all tastes, including subtle Green Blue, Sage, Mint and Ocean Green. Ashton is available in a total of 22 painted colours.

2. Sea Salt and Beach House are the 2 latest colours from Masterclass Kitchens. These coastal-inspired hues are said by the brand to embody the essence of seaside living and offer a fresh and invigorating aesthetic, and a lighter option to traditional greens and blues. Alongside these stunning new colours, the brand has also launched 2 new door styles – Clifton and Hawksmoor (pictured here). These in-frame effect doors allow customers to create bespoke-looking designs and add a touch of elegance to any kitchen.

3. Serpentine is the striking olive green shade from Tom Howley, and is used to great effect here in the brand's latest Devine design – a classic collection with traditional period detailing. The company says it’s a shade that combines a natural earthiness and depth that is perfect for kitchen environments and especially powerful in a scheme when combined with burnished brass hardware and Caesarstone Organic White worktops. 

4. The Newbridge Collection from LochAnna Kitchens is from the company's new sub brand, LochAnna Handmade, which is said to exemplify a timeless approach to incorporating green, as depicted below with the harmonious pairing of new earthy green hue Brigade, and the ever-popular Taupe. This simple Shaker-style design is packed with beautiful features, from the curved barrel units with oak chipping boards, through to the subtle curves of the Sloane mantle shelf with corbels.

5. The Marlborough Kitchen from Masterclass Kitchens is part of the company's Timeless Collection, and is a Shaker-style design with a traditional one-piece frame door with a shallow recess centre, finished in a super smooth Silk polyester paint. It's shown here in resonant Hunter Green teamed with Farringdon Grey in a project that was designed and installed by The Kitchen Store in Horsham.

6. Brand-new for 2024, Olive Green by Rotpunkt is shown here on its best-selling Zerox Fine Matt laminate kitchen furniture. This compact kitchen concept in trendy dark green finish is contemporary by design thanks to its handleless doors and drawer fronts, ergonomic base units measuring H910mm in height, brand-new City Black shelving unit seen here with City Nature Oak on the unit’s interior walls, and 17mm worktop in Black Stone.

7. Rotpunkt's Velvet Green was launched last year, and is soft-coat lacquer, seen here on the modern Smala door with 12mm modern frame. Said by the brand to offer homeowners enhanced durability, Velvet Green promises a colour-rich finish, which is anti-fingerprint and easy to clean. Rotpunkt says its soft-coated furniture colours produce less waste by-product when compared to liquid coatings as well as a significantly smoother surface.

8. The Pembroke range from Daval offers a solid ash Shaker-style door with slight woodgrain to provide a more contemporary look. The dark green colour brings a heritage feel thanks to Daval’s Forest Green shade, to provide a naturally rich aesthetic and contrast against furniture elements in Putty, a much lighter colour. This kitchen also provides a dedicated space for easy cooking along with a breakfast cupboard complete with ample storage space.

9. Martin Moore's New Classic Collection is a contemporary interpretation of its Classic kitchen, and has flat panels and delicate round moulding added to the doors. The range offers grand freestanding pieces and generously sized workspaces, so is ideally suited to open-plan living. Shown here in Evergreen on the wall cabinetry and Eucalyptus on the island, the worktops are in Colonial White Granite from Martin Moore.

10. Sachsenküchen's new Leona door design has a discreet recessed handle, and offers retailers a versatile choice of 9 shades and a distinctive oiled veneer edging in 7 decors. The peninsula takes centre stage in green shade Thyme, styled with Terra Brown veneer edging and an informal curved dining space. To enhance the luxe feel, two storage walls are presented in Patrizia (Woodline collection), a new oak veneer structured design in Terra Brown and contrasting Walnut Terra Brown.
