Although from certain points of view it can be easier to just make all the furniture in the kitchen in the same color or with the same finish, aesthetically speaking it’s more refreshing and eye-pleasing to mix and match two or more options. For instance, this kitchen has white cabinetry but the island is green and that’s pretty cool.
Speaking of elbow grease, if a farmhouse kitchen table is rather out of your budget, consider building it yourself. When you have the woodworking skills, just find a plan that suits your space and your style and you can have a beautiful heavy kitchen table in a weekend.
It’s such a wonderful thing to find hand-me-down treasures in your parents’ or grandparents’ attic. Remember that big old dining room table? Snap it up to use as a kitchen island. Being already lovingly worn down means you won’t be worried about using it to it’s full potential.
Naturally, there are many different design strategies which can revolve around green kitchen cabinets, counters, walls, etc. The cool part is that green looks nice when paired which pretty much any other color, especially those commonly found in nature.
