Picking a color for a room’s décor is not as easy as it might think. Gray, however, is a very versatile color, able to adapt to a variety of styles and spaces. Something about grey works just perfectly for kitchens. It is the perfect color to choose for your kitchen remodeling project, whether you want to contrast brighter hues on your floor or fabrics, create textured variations in your kitchen space, or create an exciting yet relaxing space. Gray kitchen cabinets, for example, look stylish in most situations and help give the room a balanced look.
One common reason why homeowners avoid grey is the color’s association with dullness, modesty, and boredom. However, any other color scheme can also be given these attributes. It all depends on how you mix and match. In our round up of grey cabinets below, you can see how different colors and textures are used to create an amazing style with grey cabinets being a big part of it. If you are not so sure of your mix-and-match skills, a talk with our interior designer might provide some guidance.
One popular option is grey and white kitchen cabinets, which creates a gentle contrast. You can go for grey cabinets and a white countertop or grey lower island and all-white upper wall cabinets. Grey does not have to be boring, dull, or safe. It can be fun, exciting, and even unique. You can take a look at these kitchen remodeling ideas from our previous projects.
Gray can appear austere and cold compared to other colors and in a room such as the kitchen which is supposed to be warm and inviting, using this tone can be tricky. The key is to pair it with warm materials such as wood and with bold accent colors such as golden, yellow, red or orange to squeeze out a bit of cheerfulness.
