Teal is one of the most versatile colours used in decorating because it comes in so many shades, and those shades work with virtually all decorating styles from traditional to modern to formal to casual. This greenish-blue colour is pleasing because it possesses the peaceful qualities of a cool blue colour and the dynamic qualities of green. From light hues to dark, using teal shades in your kitchen opens up many possibilities.

Light Teal

Lighter shades of teal reflect the calm and soothing colours of the ocean. This colour matches all neutral colours, giving you freedom to decorate with colour how you please. Go with light teal on the walls, coupled with white cabinets and pale yellow for a comforting, muted look. Another option is using this colour on window treatments, cushions, kitchenware and towels, while keeping the walls white. Use cobalt blue or red accessories to brighten the area.

Aqua Teal

This colour combination is popular because it gives rooms a sense of restful blue and energetic green in the same punch. The colour is a lighter shade of teal with a stronger hue of aqua. You can go with a dark shade of aqua teal, which will stand out and add character to any decorating style. Lighter shades of this colour blend in and feel more restful. Give walls added dimension with a sponge or stucco technique. With lighter colours on the walls, aqua teal brings character through items such as rugs, curtains and vases.

Dark Teal

Darker shades of teal can overwhelm a room if not used correctly. If you decide to put this colour on your walls, try it on a single accent wall first. White and yellow colours coordinate with this shade of teal, while red is a pleasing contrasting colour that brightens up your kitchen. White walls, dark teal canisters, bottles and vases with spots of red in flowers or fruit creates a lively kitchen.

Teal Blue

Teal blue is a medium shade of teal that has more blue than green. Like other shades of teal, this colour goes well with any style of decor, but it shines in beach or ocean-themed kitchens, where light and airy are popular moods. Try putting this bold colour on your cabinets with a light shade of pale on your walls for a sunny look. With white walls, this colour pops on seat cushions and rugs. Paired with the sandy colours of the beach, teal blue brings in just the right accent.
