The kitchen remains the place where the family congregates for eating, bonding and relaxing, especially if the space adds on a breakfast nook or island or is a open style kitchen.
The kitchen design seamlessly ties together the central theme for the design of the entire home. You must consider the various options available and make an informed choice about the colours you use in the kitchen. One of the classiest colour schemes you can incorporate in your kitchen is red and green.
Kitchen designs in red and green
Red is a strong colour and requires a judicious hand in using it. Green on the other hand is a softer colour and tempers the fiery red. Red and green makes for a festive combination. It symbolizes cheer and good will, happiness and enjoyment.
Think of pale pistachio green walls and red cabinets, paired with a gark green countertop and floors in green marble. Add bright chrome accessories and a shiny new decor scheme is ready.
Lime green walls and pale red backsplash and accents couple with white countertops and floor and open glass shelving can make for interesting decor. Add red cookware and appliances and a vivid red and green backsplash to create a stunning look.
Use a pale pinkish red to adorn your walls. Green granite countertop and floor adds depth of colour. Add cream or beige cabinets as a neutral counterfoil to the bright colours and you have a gorgeous kitchen to show off.

Interior decorator at HomeDecorBuzz, Micheal Henry said, “Red and green can easily become overwhelming as a combination, remember to tone the colours down by using white or beige or even black as a neutralizer. Paint walls white with one striking red wall. Add pale green cabinets and a stronger shade of the same green as your countertop. Finish with white floors and red appliances, you cannot go wrong!”
“Red and green patterns on white paint on your walls, red cabinets, green marble counter tops and floors and large appliances like the chimney, oven or fridge in metallic red hues can look eye catching and refreshing. The green with red accent look can be used in the living and dining area if you have an open kitchen. It creates a soothing but interesting colour scheme,” she added.
