Olive green cabinets are a timeless color choice that works both in modern as well as in classic kitchen designs. This natural yet sophisticated color can be paired with a wide variety of materials and colors in your kitchen.

You can opt for light olive tones for a subtle effect, or go for dark green kitchen cabinets to add a dramatic touch to the space. White countertops will add a more minimal appearance, while wood tones will add a rustic touch.

In the list below, I have gathered my favorite kitchen ideas with olive green kitchen cabinets for you to take inspiration from for your next remodel.

Match your wall color to your green kitchen cabinets for a tone-on-tone look

The olive green cabinets in this gorgeous farmhouse kitchen are matched by the paint color used on the walls. Even the ceilings are painted in the same olive green color, resulting in an impressive and inviting space.

From the backdrop of the olive green, the white marble countertop, marble sink, and marble backsplash pop out powerfully. Lastly, the black and white checkerboard marble flooring finishes off the look nicely.

Add a modern touch of glam with brass fixtures and hardware

The dark olive green kitchen cabinets in this impressive corner kitchen layout pair nicely with the hardwood flooring in this kitchen. The olive tone on the cabinets is paired with a beige limestone countertop and backsplash. As the cherry on top, the kitchen design is finished with brass hardware and a brass faucet for a subtle glam effect that adds depth. The brass also comes back on the trim underneath the cabinets.

Pair a pale shade of olive green with contrasting black countertops

This modern farmhouse kitchen gets a lot of natural light through the large window, which is reflected beautifully onto the pale olive green cabinets with a warm undertone.

To add a bit of contrast, the olive green tone is paired with black countertops for a contrasting effect. Lastly, the soft wood tones in the dining table and chairs provide a warm glow to the olive color of the cabinets.

Use olive green to add depth to a minimal kitchen design

White kitchen cabinets are often preferred in a minimal and modern kitchen. If you are looking to add a bit more depth, olive green cabinets are a great option to fit within a minimal aesthetic.

In the example below the olive green tone of the cabinetry pops out of the white walls and hardwood flooring, while ensuring the clean look remains. To finish the room off, the black pendant lights above the counter add an elegant contrast.

Dark green kitchen cabinets in a two-tone look pairs the best of both worlds

The olive green on the bottom cabinets is complemented by a beige terrazzo countertop and white and wood cabinets on the upper part of the layout.

The upper cabinets rest on top of the lower cabinets directly and the ribbed glass of the cabinet doors adds a lovely texture to the white frames.

Complement dark olive tones with warm elements

You can find complementary colors in the countertop materials and the leather details throughout the olive kitchen in the example below. The leather details on the rail and bench seat cushion, paired with the beige limestone countertop provide a warm aesthetic to this space.

Instead of leather, you can also work with copper hardware to add a warm tone to your olive-green cabinets.

Pair your olive green cabinets with dark wood countertops

To finish things off, a white dining table and chairs are placed in front of the kitchen window. The dining set blends in with the walls and flooring and doesn’t take any attention away from the olive green in the background.
