A major trend in the kitchen this year is incorporating a mushroom cabinet color into the design. While it is “on trend”, mushroom-colored cabinets have been a popular color for kitchen cabinets for years.
It is a fantastic option for a timeless kitchen design with neutral colors.
I am helping my parents design their kitchen renovation (sometime in the future) and am heavily considering mushroom-colored cabinets. I am pinning lots of kitchen inspiration and the kitchens below are a few of my favorites!

As you scroll through these kitchen designs, I am sure you will notice some similarities between them. I am taking notes on my favorite design elements and incorporating what I can into my parent’s kitchen design plans.

1 | Jean Stoffer Design
In my opinion, Jean Stoffer is one of the best kitchen designers around! Along with designing kitchens, she also sells cabinetry in custom colors.
The cabinets below are Kensington Taupe and it is the perfect warm neutral for a kitchen. The black countertops, brass hardware and lights, and vertical shiplap walls blend seamlessly together to create a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere to spend time with friends and family.
2 | And Studio Interiors
The mushroom color on these kitchen cabinets is so rich! The fluted glass on the doors and unlacquered brass make this kitchen feel like it has been around for 100 years.
All of the earth tones in this kitchen bring the outside in to create a relaxed and calming space.
3 | Martha Stewart
If mushroom-colored cabinets are good enough for Martha Stewart’s kitchen, they are good enough for me!
This kitchen has a timeless look with its vintage-style milk glass pendants, chrome hardware, and greenish gray walls. The stainless steel appliances and light gray countertops give this kitchen a modern touch.
4 | Sabbe Interior Design
Stephanie Sabbe is another one of my favorite designers these days this kitchen is one of my favorite designs.
The mushroom cabinet color falls on the lighter end of the spectrum and adds just the right amount of warmth to this bright and airy kitchen.
This kitchen includes classic design elements that would have been incorporated in kitchens 100+ years ago. This kitchen incorporates natural elements like copper pots, unlacquered brass, and glass jars that make it feel like this kitchen has been around for decades without feeling dated.
5 | My Brother’s Kitchen Makeover
All of the inspiring kitchen designs I have shared are from incredible designers whose work has a higher price tag and is totally worth it!
However, this mushroom cabinet color can be incorporated into budget-friendly makeovers as well. For $200, I transformed my brother’s kitchen by painting the cabinets by painting their existing cabinets in this mushroom paint color.
This cabinet update modernized the kitchen while also feeling true to the 1920s era of the home.
6 | deVOL Kitchen
I have yet to come across a deVOL kitchen I did not love. Their kitchens have that English country vibe where it never feels too fussy.
The vent holes in the upper cupboard are quintessentially English and one of my favorite design details in a kitchen.
The cupboards below are actually painted in a custom deVOL paint color named “Mushroom”. This kitchen has a bit of a utilitarian feel with the stainless steel island and open shelving for jarred ingredients.
7 | Amber Interiors
Another stunning kitchen design that brings the outdoors in with the large windows overlooking mature trees.
The mushroom-colored cabinets are adorned with different styles of unlacquered brass hardware. The reclaimed wood on the vent hood creates a relaxed atmosphere within the kitchen. The beadboard and natural earth tones add a subtle hint of the cottage and English style.
While I love a bold kitchen, these inspiring kitchens are a great reminder that neutral kitchen cabinets are anything but boring!
