If you aren’t ready to commit to an entire green kitchen then you can bring a pop of green in a small area in your kitchen.

Painting this island green helps ground the space and break up the neutral color tones throughout. The two-toned cabinets are unexpected, but they work by bringing a custom look and feel to this kitchen.

Gray Green Kitchen Cabinets

These gray green kitchen cabinets are so dreamy! This kitchen is well designed with tons of personality and function throughout.

Gray green cabinets are a great option if you want your kitchen to feel bright and airy while coordinating with other colors in your home.

The benefit of going with gray green is that it easily blends with existing colors due to the gray undertone mixed into the paint. Gray undertones give these green cabinets a timeless look and feel.

Depending on how you design and decorate the kitchen, you can give it more of a modern or a coastal feel.

If you are going for a coastal design, I recommend Oyster Bay by Sherwin, Sea Salt by Sherwin, or Evergreen Fog by Sherwin.

All of these paint colors are a shade of gray green, but they have more white mixed into them, making them feel more coastal.

This is another inspiring green kitchen that is well designed. Every inch of this kitchen was carefully thought out and each item brings a personal style and character.

Painting kitchen cabinets a bold color can be a risk since the trend might be over only a year later or you might get tired of the look.

If you choose the right shade of green for the cabinets, the kitchen can take on a classic style. So, it is important to select the correct shade of green to give your kitchen a timeless look.

It isn’t hard to paint kitchen cabinets, but it can be a tedious and time consuming process. So, if you aren’t ready to commit to green cabinets, you can opt for a small green wall in the kitchen instead.

The great thing about adding green in this space is that it can easily be changed in a weekend.

I was feeling moody with my paint colors a couple of years ago, so I decided to test a bold shade of green in a small bathroom.

Since it wasn’t an everyday space, I didn’t feel overwhelmed or tired of the paint color right away. I enjoyed the color for almost 5 years, before I decided to give it a change.

The good news is that it took me 2 days to repaint and I was able to use up a can of ceiling paint as primer to cover the dark paint color.


You can’t go wrong with a leafy green kitchen, especially if you pair it with warm wood tones, texture, and beautiful neutrals.

A green kitchen has the ability to bring nature indoors with a sense of calm and serenity. If you are looking for more inspiration, you might also enjoy these other green kitchen ideas from Sherwin!
