Greige kitchen cabinets are timeless and versatile and are a great choice for remodeling a kitchen that can be kept for years to come. Greige cabinets can be the perfect alternative for a white kitchen if you want to go just a little darker, yet still want to maintain a modest and neutral look.
Griege (aka grey-beige) is really a grey with warm undertones and it can be used on all styles of cabinets and with a variety of different hardware and countertop materials. You can pick out a greige paint color that’s light or darker, yet whichever shade you select, painting cabinets in a greige tone will give them a bit more variety than pure white cabinets.
Take a look at the greige kitchen cabinet ideas in the list below and get inspired for your kitchen remodel or if you are thinking about painting kitchen cabinets in another color. At the bottom of this post, you can find a few suggestions for greige paint swatches to give a try in your own kitchen.

Greige paint colors to try out a swatch from for your cabinets
Greige is a bit of a tricky color to get right, as the cool or warm undertone in the paint is highly influenced by the type of daylight that you get in a room. Make sure to try out a swatch and observe it on a kitchen cabinet in your own kitchen at different times during the day to get an idea of the final look.North-facing rooms have cooler daylight coming in, which benefits from a warmer undertone, while south-facing rooms typically receive a warm tone of daylight.
