Best Mushroom Paint Colors for Cabinets

deVOL Kitchens

Mushroom colored cabinets might be just what you’re looking for if you are tired of all white kitchens and not quite bold enough to go dark. I think they are a great way to add a little warmth and subtle character to a kitchen!

Mushroom colored cabinets look amazing paired with marble, antique brass, warm wood elements, and matte black. We are currently working on a kitchen remodel design and we plan on including all of these!

After doing a lot of research, here are all of our favorite mushroom paint colors! And we’ll be choosing one for the kitchen remodel cabinets.

Sample Before You Paint

Before you invest money in gallons of paint, it’s extremely important that you sample several paint color options first. You can do it the old-fashioned way which is time-consuming and messy. Or you can use Samplize to order large peel-and-stick paint samples with accurate color representation.

Drop Cloth by Farrow and Ball

Drop Cloth by farrow and ball is a gentle mid-grey beige. This paint color is neither too yellow nor too grey. It is the perfect neutral color that would work in any traditional or modern home. Drop Cloth is muted neutral color that is is on the medium range of mushroom colors. It would work well contrasting with any lighter whites or darker mushroom colors.

Skimming Stone by Farrow and Ball

Yet another beautiful color by Farrow and Ball, Skimming Stone is a little lighter within the mushroom class. It upholds lighter grey undertones and is a very soothing color. Skimming Stone would look great in a bedroom or kitchen. It is a versatile paint color with more of a contemporary look.

Shaded White by Farrow & Ball

Shaded White is a light gray beige. Its tones are not too cool or too warm. There is a subtle gray undertone to this color that makes it extremely versatile and especially perfect for kitchen cabinets.

Pale Oak by Benjamin Moore

Pale Oak by Benjamin Moore is light warmer greige(gray/beige). In some spaces, it can actually resemble more of a warm off white. It is a very versatile paint color that can be used almost anywhere including walls and or cabinets.

Feather Down by Benjamin Moore

Feather Down by Benjamin Moore is a very timeless, classic, and elegant color. This is one that I can definitely see on kitchen cabinetry. It is on the lighter side of the mushroom spectrum and offers very soothing tones. I envision this color being used with brass hardware and contrasting wood elements. If used as kitchen cabinetry, Feather Down would also be just the perfect contrast with lighter marble or even some darker moody countertops.

Elephant’s Breath by Farrow and Ball

Saving the best for last, Elephant’s Breath by Farrow and Ball is another one of my favorites. It is a warm, contemporary grey that is full of character. This paint color offers neutral tones that can be paired with most any color scheme, especially earthy accents. I love the way it looks when paired with woods and lighter colors offering more of a simple, clean look.
