From bold hues to subtle shades, we’ve been crushing on color in the kitchen for quite some time. One of our favorite kitchen design palettes pairs green cabinetry with quartz countertops in neutral tones that feature luxe marble movement. Here are seven gorgeous green kitchens showcasing a range of fresh details and swoon-worthy shades to inspire your next kitchen project.
Emerald green kitchen with Brittanicca
Deep jewel tones are having a moment, from fashion to home design, and emerald is a lush choice for kitchen cabinets that can make your space stand out without being too over the top. This vibrant hue (Lafayette Green, Benjamin Moore) pairs perfectly with bold movement, as seen here with a statement Brittanicca backsplash and countertops. Brass hardware adds a glamorous final touch.
Hunter green kitchen with Whitehall and Ella
For an inspired alternative to black cabinets, consider a deep forest green. This woodland hue is a natural complement to wood accents and we love the coziness that this shade exudes. In this kitchen, Hunter Green by Benjamin Moore offers chic contrast to crisp white quartz countertops. The Ella kitchen island features delicate linear grey veins, paired with an understated Whitehall perimeter, elongated hexagon tile, open shelving, and blonde wood flooring.
Rustic olive and white kitchen with Brittanicca Matte and Carrick Matte
This kitchen mixes things up by keeping the green to the farmhouse table island. The gray paint (Dragon’s Breath, Benjamin Moore) creates a pleasing olive green hue over the island’s wood base. Topped with Carrick Matte, this open kitchen island creates a charming focal point and functional workspace with high-performing quartz countertops. The white cabinets, Brittanicca Matte perimeter, and mix of backsplash materials open up the space and add intriguing pattern.

Pine green kitchen with Newport
This dreamy green hue seems straight out of a fairy-tale forest. We love how cabinets in this saturated shade (Jack Pine, also known as Silver Pine, Benjamin Moore) pair with crisp, white Newport countertops for a romantic and cozy farmhouse palette. A plush kilim rug in pretty pastels and modern matte black accents complete the look.
Teal green kitchen with Ella Matte
Flat-panel cabinetry in a muted teal hue pairs with Ella Matte countertops and a grid-pattern subway tile backsplash in The Effortless Chic’s Scandi-style kitchen. The serene yet spirited blue-green shade (Mountain Pine, Behr) grounds the space as lower cabinetry, while blonde wood open shelving showcases complementary pops of color. We love how the backsplash tiles’ stacked pattern contrasts the organic movement of Ella Matte, while the grout complements the white quartz countertops’ gray veining.
Mint green kitchen with Ella
A pastel green paint color like mint is a subtle yet distinct choice for refreshing kitchen style. Mint green cabinetry and white quartz countertops is a charming kitchen combination, especially when paired with open shelving, brass hardware, and vintage décor. In this space, Ella countertops and painted lower cabinets (Pigeon, Farrow and Ball) make an effortlessly elegant statement.

Sage green kitchen with Torquay
Sage green has established itself as a new neutral in kitchen design, and it’s easy to see why. Understated yet compelling, sage offers earthy warmth and contemporary style. In this kitchen, two-toned cabinetry creates visual interest paired with a Torquay waterfall island and backsplash. The warm marble-like movement of these white quartz countertops pairs beautifully with the sage green cabinets (Misty Hillside, Dunn Edwards) and brass hardware. If you’re looking for a striking alternative to gray cabinets, sage may be just the hue for you. Learn more about this kitchen renovation here.
