Greige has become an increasingly popular choice for kitchen cabinets, and rightly so. It marries the comfort of gray that’s so easy to decorate with, but adds a modern touch with a warm beige undertone. If white cabinets are boring but you’re looking for a classic color that won’t fail you, then greige is the perfect choice!

I’ve gathered 15 of the most popular greige paint colors for kitchen cabinets to help inspire you and hopefully narrow down your decision.

1. Benjamin Moore Natural Cream

Benjamin Moore Natural Cream is a beautiful neutral color choice for kitchen cabinets. Like most greige paint colors, it pairs well with both cool and warm tones but looks especially good with brass hardware.

Even though this is a small footprint for a kitchen, the light, warm color paired with tall cabinets makes it feel more spacious and open than it is.

2. Sherwin Williams Realist Beige

I love how Blushing Boho Interior Design brought so much warmth to this kitchen with the brass hardware and light fixtures.

The textured tile and warm wood tones of the shelves are the perfect complement to the greige cabinets.

It is perfect for a kitchen with lots of natural light and goes well with dark hardware like All Sorts Of did in this kitchen. The light-color walls, tile, and ceiling help brighten up the cabinets.

4. Sherwin Williams Amazing Gray

Amazing Grey will work in just about any kitchen. It is a very versatile color with slightly warm green and grey tones. A creamy white wall color with black and brass hardware goes great with this greige. This would work well in a kitchen with lots of natural light as it will look a lot warmer and muddier in a dark setting.

SW Accessible Beige is considered by many to be the perfect greige paint. It has a warm taupe undertone (that can look slightly pink in some lighting conditions) and goes well with earthy accents.

In this Studio McGee kitchen, antique brass hardware is used but it also goes really well brighter shades of brass, or even matte black hardware. Dark counters will make the cabinets feel darker but a light marble will brighten them up.

Final Thoughts

Picking the perfect greige for your kitchen cabinets can seem daunting since there’s so many stunning shades to choose from. Like with any paint color, it’s important to take note of the natural light in your space and how it changes throughout the day. You may like the color in the morning but by the afternoon it’s a totally different shade.

Picking the right hardware and decor that pairs well with your chosen greige will also change the end look of your cabinets, so be sure to take that into consideration as you make your choice.
