The days of Magnolia being the only option when choosing to recolour our living space are long gone and the door has been opened to a whole world of new options and ideas. Within this world of almost infinite choices, we think we have struck gold, or rather struck green with our sage green kitchens. In recent months when a lot of us are feeling like prisoners within our own homes and simply going out not always being an option, the obvious choice is to just bring the outdoors indoors, but this is often easier said than done.
Whilst the idea of flooding our homes with greenery and foliage sounds appealing it can be incredibly hard to maintain, so we believe the best way to breathe some outdoor life into your living space is with a gorgeous sage green shaker kitchen.
Why choose a sage green kitchen design?
With there being a, no pun intended, whole spectrum of colours to choose from, how did we settle on the gorgeous shades of green as our new number one choice for your kitchen designs? Green is no longer just a colour, it has achieved escape velocity and taken on a whole myriad of new meanings; cities are green now, cars are green too, the very act of living healthily is now green, so we must be using this label for a reason right?
Within colour psychology green has an expansive list of positive effects on people and we believe this is the core reason why green is right for you. People often suggest that the colour green has a calming effect on them, the strong association with nature giving it a tranquil energy perfect for our often chaotic homes.
Other studies, such as this one, suggest that dark green shades can be soothing, helping to minimise stress and anxiety and bring in clarity and composure in their place. It’s no coincidence that before live performances artists collect their thoughts in a ‘green room’, and if everybody else is utilising the magical properties of green, why shouldn’t we have this same magic in our own homes.
How to implement green shades into your kitchen
It’s all well and good boasting the wonderful properties of this seemingly perfect colour, but how are we actually meant to utilise them at home? Luckily for you, we here at Sustainable Kitchens are experts when it comes to making the most of your home. Take this gorgeous Green Shaker Kitchen we installed in a Georgian townhouse as just a sneak peek of how it could transform your own home.
You’d be amazed at the impact a collection of dark green shaker cabinets can have on the overall feel of your home.
Whether it’s a full green kitchen or utilising the calming colour with splashes here and there. Opt for a green island to compliment the pale waterfall worktops, or even offset the blue sky outside the window with a pop of sage green paint along the walls to really bring nature home, where it’s most needed.
How to stay sustainable?
