Green kitchens are having a moment.

“From mint and sage to dazzling emerald and deep forest, green of every shade is entering the kitchen,” declared design authority Architectural Digest. “In the world of interiors, there’s one trend du jour that has our hearts racing,” added The Spruce. “That would be the rise of the green kitchen.” Concurred Homes & Gardens: “Green is the most Instagrammed kitchen color trend of the past year.”

From bold hues to subtle shades, we’ve been crushing on color in the kitchen for quite some time. Here, we’re sharing 12 gorgeous verdant kitchen ideas that showcase the swoon-worthy shade to inspire your next kitchen project.

Our Favorite Green Kitchen Design Ideas

Chrome Green Cabinets Paired with Black Quartz Countertops

In the kitchen of this Katonah, New York, home, Colombian interior designer Alberto Villalobos leaned into the inherent contrast by pairing Benjamin Moore Chrome Green kitchen cabinets with Cambria Black™ countertops.

“It was the perfect choice, because it’s a true, deep black, and the material is in perfect keeping with our whole ethos for the design—sticking with the kinds of highly functional, durable materials that the modernists favored, while introducing some high-end luxury,” explains Villalobos to Cambria Style.

The black and green hues pop against a standout gold backsplash and graphic custom-designed ochre terrazzo tiles. New oversize windows bathe the entire space in natural light, further spotlighting the vibrant color moments.

“The kitchen ceilings are the lowest in the house, barely eight feet in most areas, so those big windows made a huge impact on the work space and brought light into the adjoining family room,” says Villalobos to Cambria Style.

Emerald Green Kitchen Island Paired with White Perimeter Cabinets & Brittanicca Warm™ Countertops

Emerald green island cabinetry paired with Brittanicca Warm (a great marble alternative) quartz backsplash and countertops, matte Café appliances, and gold hardware lends warmth to this cozy kitchen.

Bold Green Kitchen Cabinets with Ivybridge™ Quartz Countertops & Backsplash

Cambria recently introduced Ivybridge—with veins that streak across the design with compelling movement.

The dark teal pattern creates depth and adds dimension to the stark white background, and the captivating mid-tone bridges the gap between warm and cool colors while being uplifting on its own.

Nowhere is that clearer than in this bold kitchen design, where the Ivybridge countertops and backsplash highlight the warm green tones.

Moss Green Cabinets Paired with White & Black Quartz Create an Earthy Feel

In Cambria’s Rose Bay™ design, a white foundation is infused with robust black marbled veining, creating a striking abstract effect where opposites definitely attract.

The juxtaposition lends itself well to this green kitchen design, adding life to the moss green cabinetry while still maintaining an overall soothing aesthetic.

Bright Green Upper Cabinets Stand Out in This Colorful Space

In this unique kitchen design, Cambria Rose Bay quartz countertops ground an abundance of color, including bright green upper cabinetry and standout design details.

Emerald Green Kitchen Cabinets Add a Splash of Color to This White & Gray Space

Deep jewel tones are having a moment, from fashion to home design, and emerald green kitchen cabinets are a lush choice 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™ quartz backsplash and countertops. Brass hardware adds a glamorous final touch.

Hunter Green Cabinets Stand Out Against a White Backsplash & Countertop

For an inspired alternative to black, consider deep forest green for your kitchen cabinets. 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™ quartz kitchen island countertop features delicate linear gray veins, paired with an understated Whitehall™ perimeter, elongated hexagon tile, open shelving, and blonde wood flooring.

Rustic Olive Green Kitchen Island Pairs Well with White & Gray Quartz Countertops

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 Cabinetry with White Quartz Countertops

This dreamy green kitchen 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 quartz 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 Cabinets with Gray Matte Quartz Countertops

Flat-panel cabinetry in a muted teal green 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) on the cabinetry grounds the space, 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 quartz, while the grout complements the white quartz countertops’ gray veining.

Mint Green Kitchen Cabinets with White Quartz Countertops

A pastel paint color like mint green 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 quartz countertops and painted lower cabinets (Pigeon, Farrow and Ball) make an effortlessly elegant statement. Get all the delightful details of this vintage-modern kitchen renovation on The Happy Tudor blog.

Sage Green Cabinets with Torquay Quartz Countertops

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™ quartz island countertop 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.
