Dazzlingly bright white kitchens aren’t going out of style anytime soon, but these days, many homeowners are opting for a grayer palette instead. Gray is an ideal choice for kitchen renovators who are interested in maintaining a neutral palette, while also enhancing the warmth and visual interest of the kitchen. For expert tips on using the color properly, talk to a kitchen renovation specialist.
Use multiple shades of gray.
For best results with your gray kitchen, use multiple shades. Have the lower cabinets painted in a medium gray, with the top cabinets in a lighter gray. Or, if you aren’t quite sure you want to ditch white entirely, you could keep the top cabinets white and install lower cabinets in an elegant shade of gray.
Add a touch of blue.
Blue complements gray nicely, and gray-blue is a color that works particularly well in kitchens. Consider using a light, gray-blue color for your lower cabinets, with a light, solid gray color on the top ones. You can bring out the blue in the cabinets further by adding smaller décor items in shades of blue.
Go bold with an eye-popping dark gray.
Lighter shades of gray certainly aren’t the only option when remodeling your kitchen. Gray is an incredibly versatile color. You can make a bold statement by choosing a dramatic, charcoal gray. Instead of doing different shades for the upper and lower cabinets, consider using dark gray for all of them. Keep the rest of the kitchen elements in white or light wood tones to break up the dark gray. Use a solid white backsplash, paint the window trim white, and choose a white oven and range hood.
