Taupe is a neutral, earthy color that falls somewhere between gray and brown. It is a complex hue that can have subtle undertones of pink, purple, or green. Taupe for kitchen cabinets is often described as a warm, cozy color that exudes a sense of sophistication and elegance. Its muted, understated quality makes it a popular choice for interior design. Taupe is a versatile color that can work well with a variety of other shades. Overall, taupe is a timeless and classic color that adds a touch of refinement to any setting.


I sampled some of the most popular Benjamin Moore light and dark taupe colors in my South-facing kitchen. Here are some of my favorites:


STONE HEARTH BY BENJAMIN MOORE (CC-490)


Stone Hearth has a slightly warm undertone that gives it a cozy and inviting feel. The color is deep and rich, with a subtle purple undertone.
