25+ Interior Designers Reveal Their Favorite Kitchen Paint Colors

From deep greens to cheerful yellows, experts explain their go-to paint colors for the kitchen.

A simple color change can update your kitchen in a major way. The right shade of grey, for example, can turn the room from drab to sleek and sophisticated. Finessing the right hue of red, meanwhile, can take it from lackluster to perfectly dramatic. Here, interior designers share their favorite shades of paint for the kitchen so you can spend less time looking at swatches and more time enjoying your newly-designed space.

“I recently used Sherwin Williams’ Knitting Needles for all the cabinetry in a kitchen and the results are amazing. This is a light gray that manages to be not too green or too blue, a color that manages to be sophisticated and contemporary, but not boring. The satin finish from Sherwin Williams is beautiful for cabinetry and very durable. I paired the cabinet color with antique brass hardware and the contrast is stunning.” – Jeff Andrews

“I am loving the colored lower cabinetry trend. A deep glossy blue adds unexpected polish and pop, while still feeling classy and classic. A sure bet is Benjamin Moore Downpour Blue on the lower cabinetry paired with Benjamin Moore CO-17 White Dove on the upper cabinets. The best part is that this color combo is enhanced by either polished nickel or polished brass hardware it’s versatile and unique.” – Emilie Munroe

“This is a go-to of mine. It’s a perfect warm neutral for walls to offset clean white cabinetry and millwork. It looks beautiful on cabinetry as well when we want a creamy look. It’s just enough grey and brown to pair perfectly with warmer or cooler tones.” – Wendy Labrum

“An earthy red is always appetizing. Painting the island ‘Moroccan Spice’ by Benjamin Moore provides a dramatic focus in the kitchen.” – Karen Vidal

“This is a fantastic color for a kitchen. The elegant and timeless color conjures images of nature, the depth of the sea and the vast sky. The color’s tonality works well with paonazzo marble and burnished brass hardware. It also complements colors such as green, lilac and grey. It is dramatic while being peaceful, which is the perfect combination.” – Sara Story

“For kitchen walls, I love Farrow & Ball’s aptly named Breakfast Room Green. For the woodwork in the kitchen, I adore using Farrow and Ball’s Tanner Brown. It’s the perfect combo for a super chic kitchen.” – Ken Fulk

“Benjamin Moore’s Navy Masterpiece in a matte finish has limitless depth. If you want a lighter kitchen experience try bleached raw oak cabinetry on a Navy Masterpiece backdrop. You can’t go wrong.” – Don Stewart

“A dark kitchen island is always timeless. It lays the foundation for the kitchen and creates a strong presence.” – Katie Hodges

“A very dark green works beautifully in older homes and with more traditional cabinetry. It’s bolder and moodier than what the cabinets probably were originally, but still feels period appropriate, whereas black might read too modern or too masculine.” – Michelle Smith

“On a recent project, I was inspired to use a bold blue on my client’s kitchen cabinets. We custom mixed the color, but it was very similar to Farrow and Ball’s Drawing Room Blue 253. In flat form, it is a very pretty deep blue that stops just short of purple territory, but using it in a high gloss, like I did, offers a much stronger impact. I paired it with an antiqued mirror subway tile from Ann Sacks on the backsplash and white Caesarstone countertops. The end result was a bit glam, a bit modern, and anything but dull.” – Amanda Nisbet

“The warm quality can have a brownish stone undertone that pairs well with white.” – Highlyann Krasnow

“All of the colors from Barry Dixon’s ‘Naturals’ palette from C2 are incredible. Right now my favorite is Pond Ripple. It’s a mossy green with a clay undertone. It would look incredible in a kitchen with unlacquered brass hardware and honed Calcutta Gold marble countertops.” – Jon Call

“It’s a delightful, versatile neutral that pairs brilliantly with blues, greens, and grays. The hint of green elicits thoughts of the first days of spring and the taste of fresh garden vegetables.” – Sarah Barnard

“This is my favorite paint color for a kitchen, or anywhere for that matter. It’s the perfect color: It enhances any room by changing subtly with the lighting and surrounding colors.” – Robin Baron

“This is a happy light yellow cast tan. It has enough saturation to complement white cabinets and is also light enough to be flattering to wood cabinets. Meanwhile, my favorite trim color is Benjamin Moore Simply White OC-117. I use it 90 percent of the time; it is a neutral white that goes with most colors.” – Susan Morgan

“So many kitchens today are white and gray, to which yellow is often the perfect complement. This color works very well with white cabinets, white marble calacatta and Carerra. I’ve even paired it with very casual concrete countertops.” –Lindsey Coral Harper

“Homeowners are embracing white cabinets and Creamy is a great color for this use. It’s a clean white that will not look dingy or yellowed when mixed with your countertop or backsplash.” – Becki Kerns

“I love to use a muted gray color for kitchens. It is a calming color that you end up loving more and more with time. I never worry about my clients tiring of it after a year. It is also a particularly great complementary color with darker tones if you are, say, using two different colors for the cabinets and island.” – Alison Palevsky

“I crave juxtaposition, so I am envisioning bleached out, reclaimed, herringbone wood floors combined with kitchen cabinets painted in Plummet by Farrow & Ball. I would use a full gloss finish to add a modern element into the design and to reflect light. I would accent the minimalistic details of the millwork in a gilded paint and select simple brass pulls to play into the element of a classically rich, yet simplistic design.” – Katie Scott

“A hand-brushed painted finish done in an enamel-based paint is strikingly beautiful. The process takes patience and is a true art, several layers of application with focused sanding between coats. Benjamin Moore Baltic Gray 1467 is a favorite. It’s a lovely mid-tone grey.” – Christine Gachot

“Super White by Benjamin Moore allows us to play with millwork and furniture, adding patterning and texture while keeping the kitchen fresh. We are also able to change the mood of the kitchen by adding different accent colors through accessories.” – Greg Natale

“This is the most durable paint finish. Ultra-gloss with a marine quality, the Hollandlac line is the finest choice for any application.” – Joy Moyler
