Why Use Green Appliances and Accessories in the Kitchen?

Why should you consider using green color kitchen appliances and accessories?

Considered the most restful and energizing of all the colors, green has the calming effect of blue and the excitement and energy of yellow.

It is the color of growth, nature, fertility, and life, and signifies energy, since growth requires change and transformation.

Green is also the color of safety, well-being, learning, and balance. There are several different shades and hues of green available for use as kitchen colors, including emerald green, teal green, deep teal, apple green, retro green, pistachio, canopy green, dark green, pear, bayleaf, and lime green.

As if that isn't bad enough, the apple green in one brand may not be the same green as the apple green in another brand.

Lime green is the most energizing of these colors. Because it is made up of a mixture of blue and yellow, green has both a warming and cooling effect, providing a feeling of freshness and balance for the person who is changing or growing in the rest of their lives.

The main problem in buying green kitchen appliances is that there are so many different shades. For instance, the DeLonghi Kmix 5-Cup Drip Coffee Maker is a bright kelly green, but the person you are purchasing a gift for might prefer lime green, or even forest green. Be sure before buying, or save the receipt!
