Best Green Paint Colors for Kitchen Cabinets

Tired of white kitchens? Green may be your new favorite color for a kitchen! Check out all the examples below!

It may be no surprise that my favorite color is green. I’ve used green on my website branding for So Much Better With Age and Jamie Lundstrom Interiors.

And lately I’ve been toying with the idea of painting my kitchen cabinets green. I love the deep, rich color and it looks so good against whites, blacks, golds and woods making it a true classic kitchen color.

Now what shade of green would the best color be?

With so many green paint colors on the market, I’m sharing real life examples of green kitchens. Most have the paint color listed (unfortunately some do not) but I do share my favorite colors at the bottom of this post.

I think it would be quite challenging to have a post on green kitchen cabinets and NOT include an example from Devol Kitchens. Their bespoke cabinetry comes in a variety of fun colors and they have many, many examples of beautiful deep shades of green like the ones below.

Chelsey Freng‘s kitchen is beautifully simplistic. This is a stunning deep green without it being that super deep hunter green. It goes so well with light wood accents.

Unfortunately, I could not find a paint color for these cabinets either.

  1. OH Jamie, thank you for once again sharing a wonderful Post on your post. Gorgeous all of them. Any one would be lovely.

  2. Jamie love the newsletter and all the green inspiration in this addition. I am looking at my kitchen cabinets and wondering… maybe green is just the change my cabinets need. Thank you for all your informative and detailed newsletters. It always makes me smile when they arrive in my “in box”.

      1. I love dark greens… Thought it was pretty outrageous at first, but currently we just have one accent wall in Behr ‘Stone Lion” which is what they used to call it, I never get tired of it! Thank you for the helpful posts, I always look forward to seeing them!

  3. I love green in the kitchen. Two years ago we painted our lower cabinets in Saybrook Sage green and I still love them. If you’re interested you can see them on my instagram account at The French Sanctuary. I know if you do go green, it will look great!

  4. I believe the picture of the kitchen with the copper tea kettle in it, where you said you didn’t know the color of the cabinets, is found on other sites and it is called Oil Cloth by Sherwin Williams.

  5. Thank you for sharing. What finish would you paint cabinets? Looking to paint cabinets in a bonus room green. Appreciate all the options you shared.

  6. Are you familiar with Sherwin Williams Forestwood? Thinking of painting our cabin cabinets that color but worried it will be too dark?

  7. I’d love to know your opinion on what white paint colors look good with these greens above. I’m painting my kitchen cabinets either the 50/50 Sherwin Williams mix of Pewter Green & Ripe Olive or just Ripe Olive. I’m wanting a traditional English kitchen look. Love the look of off white walls with a darker neutral trim color. Having a hard time with finding the perfect whites for green kitchen cabinets! Thanks

    1. Hi Sarah,
      I love any white that has a creamy base. I feel it’s warmer than a stark white. The whites I’ve shared on my blog I love. Were you wanting to find a Sherwin Williams white? Let me know if you need further help. Hugs, Jamie
