15+ Interiors that will Convince You to Embrace Green Cabinets

Embrace green cabinets in your home. Dark green, olive, sage, and kelly green cabinets have been popping up in kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and more! 

The Jan/Feb 2019 issue of Country Living claims that “green is the new neutral.” They must have consulted me (yeah, right) because I’ve been saying that for years! Still, I chose green cabinets for our Vintage Laundry Room way back in the summer (well before CL’s issue was released), so maybe I can claim a *tiny bit* of early trend-spotting, right?! 

My last name is “Green,” so maybe I come by my love for the color naturally, right?! Truthfully, I’ve loved it since long before I married and became a “Green.” Likely, due to its natural appearance throughout nature. Shades of green exude life, freshness, and energy. 

In today’s post, we’ll take a look at dark, mid-tone, and light green cabinetrys in a variety of rooms from kitchens to laundry rooms

Dark Green Cabinets

Hunter green, forest greens, and olive green are all in the dark green category. Some green paint colors are dark enough that they can read deep gray or nearly black in certain lighting.

Here are a few of my favorite dark green cabinet ideas:

Studio McGee chose a hunter green for the kitchen remodel in their Denver Tudor project.

I chose a forest green cabinet color (and trim) for our vintage laundry room.

Jenny Komenda used an olive green on shaker style cabinets, paired with shiplap

This is Our Bliss included a hunter green island in her kitchen makeover.

Juniper Home chose a dark olive for the shaker style cabinets in the studio kitchen

Mid-Tone Green Cabinetry

Moss green and kelly green are included in the mid-tone green paint colors. If a dark green cabinet feels too intense, a kelly or moss green is a fresh, lighter choice.

Here are a few of my favorite mid-tone green cabinet examples

Miss Mustard Seed painted her builder-grade butler pantry a moss green shade. 

Live Free Creative Co. renovated a small kitchen with kelly green cabinets.

Jamie Costiglio built a tall cupboard and painted it a gorgeous green.

Light Green Cabinets

Sage green and mint green are both included in the light green color range. Sage green is a bit warmer in tone, while mint green leans cooler with hints of blue.

Here are a few of my favorite light green cabinet ideas

So, are you ready to embrace green cabinets in your home? Why, or why not? Would you embrace any color – other than wood stain or white – on cabinetry? If, so which color? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
