 Don’t Miss the Most Popular Kitchen Cabinet Paint Colors of 2023

Hunting for that perfect new kitchen cabinet paint color? We’ve got you covered, outlining a quick look at what’s trending, a few specific examples, and some tips too.

But first, we want to add that you just can’t go wrong with white. It offers a timeless look and a clean, airy feel in your kitchen. Gray is almost just as popular too, pairing well with many countertop and wall colors. We’re also seeing a lot of navy blue these days - it’s a bold, luxurious look! Sage green too. It’s softer and more natural but no less striking.

Try these cabinet colors on for size

Please know that we aren’t advocating for any specific brands or manufacturers here, but rather offering color examples that you can use as a springboard for your own project.

 Don’t Miss the Most Popular Kitchen Cabinet Paint Colors of 2023

Pure White by Sherwin-Williams

This bright, clean white creates an inviting atmosphere in the kitchen while also pairing well with either light or dark countertops. It won’t clash with your hardware either. Highly versatile, it can be used for a variety of looks, ranging from modern to traditional to farmhouse.

White Dove by Benjamin Moore

Picture Pure White, but now make it a little bit warmer. And that’s really the beauty of white: there are so many options and variations to choose from! This pick will never go out of style and plays well with any other materials, colors, or textures you’d like to introduce.

Naval by Sherwin-Williams

Remember the navy blue we mentioned? This one’s a great example! Deep and rich, it provides both contemporary and traditional kitchens with a classic look. If you don’t want the space to become too dark, try using it on just your lower cabinets and sticking with something lighter and brighter up top.

Rookwood Dark Green by Sherwin Williams

Whether you're looking to make a bold statement or add a touch of sophistication, Rookwood Dark Green is a great choice. It also pairs well with lighter colors and natural woods, making it a great option for traditional-style kitchens.

What factors should you consider when you’re picking cabinet colors?

Keep these key considerations in mind to help guide your decision-making process:

  • Consider the overall theme of your kitchen. Do you prefer a modern, classic, or traditional look? Different colors will support different goals.

  • Consider the style of your cabinets themselves.

  • What about the other colors in your kitchen? Are there any accent colors you want to complement, or avoid clashing with?

  • Factor in your “fixed” colors, like countertops, backsplash, and flooring. What kind of palette will work best?

  • What about the size of your kitchen? Light colors will make it look bigger while darker colors can make it feel smaller.

  • You'll also want to assess the amount of natural light. Light paint can make a darker kitchen look brighter and dark paint can make a brighter kitchen look more cozy.

Customer Reviews

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”

— Mark & Roberta Gross

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”
