Dive into the home designer’s new kitchen obsession with these 14 green two-tone kitchen cabinets.
The rising popularity of green kitchens
So what’s the source of this green kitchen obsession? Look no further than at Ms. Dakota Johnson.
Ever since the release of her home tour for Architectural Digest, home designers everywhere have been shocked and awed by her beautiful green kitchen.
The decorative limes? The perfect shade of sage green? It’s easy to see why we all fell in love.
Beyond the pop-culture influence, green two-tone kitchens are appealing to the masses.
So why are we so drawn to green? I think it has a lot to do with the versatility of the color. Depending on the chosen shade, it can make a room feel homey, vintage, or calm.
Regardless of your intended mood, green cabinets suit kitchens well because the room is a natural gathering place; green lends itself to this welcoming comfort in most shades.
14 green two-tone kitchen cabinets
I’ve compiled a range of green kitchens so that you can find the one that best fits your home. Discover which green-tone kitchen cabinets most speak to you!
1) Dusty green two-tone kitchen cabinets
This contemporary kitchen combines dusty green lower cabinets with clean white cabinets on top. The effect is open, light, and joyful!
The black appliances and gold accents make the kitchen stand out from the pack.
2) Emerald two-tone
For a little more drama, check out these bold emerald green cabinets. While the upper cabinets remain a neutral white, this darker shade of green gives off a totally different vibe from the first!
Emerald combined with wicker and copper elements gives the room a slightly bohemian flair without skimping on sophistication.
3) Nantucket gray kitchen
This green two-tone kitchen combines a sagey green-gray cabinet paint with a gray-blonde wooden island. Together they create a classically beautiful kitchen.
The coordinating floor tile helps this kitchen shine!
4) Soft blue-green
For those who adore sweet, feminine styles, you’re going to love this soft blue-green kitchen. The lower blue-green cabinets sparkle in contrast with the white upper cabinets.
If you’re drawn to more bluish shades, I have an entire post for you on blue two-tone kitchen cabinets.
5) Black & green two-tone kitchen cabinets
Black and green two-tone kitchen cabinets are a gamble with maximum return!
This kitchen goes for the gold with smoky green cabinets and a black island. The results are modern and welcoming. And all with an exposed-brick background? Enviable.
6) Simple sage kitchen cabinets
Sage is kind of a big deal. If my instincts are correct, it’s definitely the next millennial pink!
This kitchen lets sage speak for itself with its simplistic design. The sage lower cabinets are contrasted with white uppers for that two-tone effect we know and love.
This design even features white appliances, a previously dated feature that is definitely on the up and up! I have a post on the great white appliance comeback of 2022 here.
7) Bold green two-tone
These green two-toned kitchen cabinets are not for the faint of heart! But a little risk makes life way more interesting.
This kitchen collages color and pattern for a fun, campy rendition of the green kitchen trend.
The bright kelly green color of the lower cabinets is a recurring theme; it comes back in the backsplash and pop art mural. This helps bring unity to a playful design.
The upper cabinets are a gentle peach shade, providing a little warmth to the room.
8) Dark green cabinets
Nothing excites me more than a gorgeous shade of forest green. These green lower cabinets meld perfectly with dark appliances.
White upper cabinets add good variance, especially when paired with black hardware!
The green components of the floor tile tie everything together.
9) Mint green kitchen
These mint green two-tone kitchen cabinets spark joy in a major way. I’m obsessed with this color combination of mint and white cabinets paired with gold and pastel pink accents.
The glass hexagonal backsplash adds even more quirk while the black appliances pull us back from sweetness overload.
If you’re not already impressed, this kitchen is actually in an RV – talk about a transformation!
10) Dark green island
Something about this shade of green just screams regality. If you’re drawn to all-black everything but are worried it’ll look drab in a kitchen, dark green is an excellent substitute!
I love the high-contrast design of this kitchen, using plenty of that well-loved black and white color combination. The green island is the perfect addition!
11) Quirky green two-tone
This green kitchen has so much character! The leaf green island matches the brilliant wallpaper backsplash (I am OBSESSED with the pattern).
Cream cabinets effortlessly balance the room.
Because this green is so on trend, it brings a sense of youth to the vintage elements in the room.
12) Jewel toned
I adore these jewel-toned green kitchen cabinets. The shade of green is super unique and will stand out in a sea of green kitchens!
Gold hardware fits naturally with this brilliant shade. The added white cabinets let the jewel green cabinets remain the main character.
13) Tan & green kitchen cabinets
If you’re looking for a neutral cabinet color that isn’t white, this kitchen could be the answer to your quandary!
Tan and green two-tone kitchen cabinets just make sense. Because green and brown are colors that most commonly represent the natural world, their pairing looks, well, natural!
This kitchen plays into this nature union, including wooden countertops and accents. The dark, grouted backsplash and gold hardware choices bring back a little contemporary flair.
14) Bright green two-tone kitchen cabinets
Ok, I have a bit of an unpopular opinion to share – I love chartreuse.
This color gets a bad wrap which I think is unfair! The color combines the best parts of yellow and green without looking like a highlighter. It’s unique and screams fun!
This kitchen picks up on the color’s playful nature with a graphic backsplash and matching island countertop.
While chartreuse was born to stand out, I can admit it tends to overpower. To combat chartreuse’s bold nature, this kitchen keeps cabinet boxes and drawers white. This way, the chartreuse cabinet doors are subdued just a tad.
Final thoughts on green two-tone kitchen cabinets
I hope you’re as inspired by these green two-tone kitchen cabinets as I am! Green kitchens are so beautiful and inviting, they just might have the “wow factor” to surpass the ever-popular all-white kitchen.
