White cabinets will always be in style, but they can feel a bit boring and stark in an all white kitchen. Instead of your typical white cabinets, bring warmth into a space with unexpected greige kitchen cabinets.
Greige easily pairs with any type of cabinet hardware and fixtures, so you can’t go wrong with this greige in the kitchen. Read on to find out which wall color looks best against greige painted cabinets.
Best Greige Kitchen Cabinets
I love a greige kitchen cabinet color because it feels warm, classic, and it is unexpected. Greige is not your typical cabinet color, but these mushroom paint colors will look beautiful on kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
Agreeable Gray on Cabinets
We’ve seen Agreeable Gray a million times painted on walls, but this color looks totally different on kitchen cabinets. The color takes on a light mushroom shade on kitchen cabinets that pairs with any color hardware.
Agreeable Gray cabinets look best when paired with light walls, neutral backsplash, and white countertops.
Eider White Kitchen
Eider White by Sherwin Williams isn’t your typical greige paint color because it is consider a shade of white. Even though this is color is more on the white side, it has greige undertones making it slightly darker than white.
Depending on the light and surrounding decor this color can appear as a light shade of greige. If you aren’t convinced one of the other greige colors is right for your project then you might prefer Eider White.
This color falls between white and greige, so you have the best of both worlds with this color. It’s not so stark and not as dark as a other shades of greige.
Worldly Gray Cabinets
I used this shade of greige in my bedroom and I absolutely love it. Worldly Gray brings warmth to a room making it feel cozy and inviting.
This shade of greige is one of the darker taupe colors, so I prefer to mix this with white and light shades of greige to brighten it up.
Accessible Beige Kitchen Cabinets
Accessible Beige is a warm greige with gray undertones mixed in. Depending on the light this color can appear more gray or even green.
The color pairs perfectly with bright white, black, wood, and other warm colors. Accessible Beige is a nice greige for kitchen cabinets that will blend in easily with your existed decor and paint colors.
What Color Walls go with Greige Kitchen Cabinets
Greige cabinets typically pair best with light colors because it adds contrast. However, lighter shades of greige that are almost white, can pair with either darker or lighter colors.
Accessible Beige cabinets look great with walls painted in Snowbound by Sherwin Williams.
Agreeable Gray cabinets pair nicely with walls painted in Alabaster or Eider White by Sherwin Williams.
Worldly Gray cabinets really pops against Alabaster or Extra White by Sherwin Williams.
Eider White painted cabinets can go with either darker or light paint colors. Iron Ore, Dorian Gray, or Pure White by Sherwin Williams would be a nice accent for Eider White Cabinets.
