Green has become a more a more common color for kitchen cabinets, especially since most paint manufacturers now offer a vast array of green shades. Whether it's a deep forest green or a soothing, light moss, the shade of green that's right for you is surely available.
Part of the appeal of green kitchen cabinets has to do with what the kitchen is all about in the first place—for many families, it's the place they start their day, and where they eat their first meal. Green is a color choice that suggests health, and it can be both vibrant and soothing, so it makes perfect sense for kitchens.
In terms of shades, light lime is a particularly popular shade for kitchens. It's both bright and soothing—a perfect combination for the place you'll spend many mornings. Other popular choices are sage, mint and celery green, but it's not uncommon to find kitchens with green cabinets in shades that are much livelier, even edging into the fluorescent green and yellow range.
