Earthy, contemporary and tranquil, sage green is an on-trend colour that shows no signs of going out of style. Integrating it into your kitchen colour palette will evoke a feeling of serenity and bring a wave of calm to your surroundings.

Whether the aesthetic of your kitchen is traditional, transitional, modern or rustic, sage green is a universally appealing choice. Use this soothing colour as the basis for a full kitchen redesign, or weave splashes of sage into your existing kitchen to stay on trend with minimal effort.

Consider your colour palette

The muted quality of sage green makes it a very versatile base, with a multitude of options for colour combinations. As green is opposite red on the colour wheel, splashes of pale reds or pastel pinks work wonderfully in a sage green kitchen. Or, for a more traditional affair, combine with crisp whites and soft cream tones for timeless elegance.

If you’re planning a kitchen redesign, choosing sage green cabinetry will add colour and interest to your space without overpowering it. If you wish, take a dual-tone approach and mix sage top cabinets with neutral lower cupboards. Opt for units with clean, sharp lines to keep things modern or select a style with panelling to suit a transitional kitchen.

A high-quality quartz or porcelain worktop elevates the aesthetic and durability of any kitchen. Sage green cabinetry finds its perfect match in 503 Circa. Embodying the essence of natural marble in an easy-to-care-for porcelain worktop, its bold light-grey veins bring profound depth. Or 5112 Aterra Blanca, with its misty white base and translucent glow, proves to be another enticing pairing with sage green. Request a sample of both to admire their beauty for yourself.


Natural wood elements blend beautifully into a sage green kitchen, so consider this when deciding on flooring. It could be a cool-toned light wood for a modern and minimalist take, or something darker and more rustic for a farmhouse theme. Create a warm, homely feel by adding a Persian rug or a runner.

Tiled flooring would also work nicely. Choose a characterful, bold pattern or a soft neutral tile to adhere to a more traditional aesthetic.

Accents and accessories

Strong, cohesive accents play a vital role in achieving a truly showstopping kitchen. Brass and copper metallics, or contrasting colours like black or navy, work exceedingly well with sage green. Choose complementary cabinet handles, faucets, display pots and pans that bring style and character to your space.

You can accentuate the natural serenity of sage green by accessorising with plants, herbs and greenery too, which will breathe life into the room.

A carefully selected lighting fixture will enhance the overall theme of your sage green kitchen. Hang antique bronze or copper pendant lights from the ceiling to add vintage charm, or choose industrial lighting to complement a country kitchen.
