KBIS 2022 (the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show) saw the birth of a new branch of the green interior design trend in the shape of kitchen appliances – in sizes great and small.  From fridges to stand mixers, this versatile hue is set to take over your kitchen this season. However, as the experts suggest, this green kitchen idea will not fall out of favor anytime soon. Here’s what you need to know before you make the investment. 

According to HGTV star and interior designer Alison Victoria, the timelessness of green appliances is the secret to their emerging success. In her discussion of BlueStar’s Color of the Year 2022, Green with Envy (opens in new tab), the Windy City Rehab star, shared that the color will still look great ten or twenty years from now.  ‘Appliances are the hardscape of the kitchen and not something you want to change out frequently, so they need to be layerable,’ Alison says. ‘They are a big investment – you don’t want to get sick of them after ten years.’  BlueStar also describes their apt Color of the Year as a versatile and timeless tone that ‘represents prosperity, power, and harmony.’ And while a selection of green tones are cited as the ‘it’ color for 2022, Green with Envy comes out on tops. ‘Pair this on-trend hue with brass trim…for a luxurious look,’ they add. 

How to get behind the green kitchen appliances trend

Investing in Green with Envy is a natural place to begin when considering the best kitchen appliances. However, the Pennsylvania-based powerhouse isn’t the only kitchen label that is celebrating this color trend.  In an interview with H&G, Helen Simpson, KitchenAid’s Marketing Manager for the UK and Ireland, revealed that their Pistachio (opens in new tab) appliances are amongst their most sought-after for the year. ‘Pastels aren’t new, but we credit their continued success in the kitchen with the ease that they can add a beautiful subtle color while maintaining a neutral palette,’ she adds. The green kitchen appliance trend is officially in motion. Will you make the shift?
