Gray All Day
There’s something about gray. It’s just the right combination of moody, bold, and chic. It’s a neutral that’s not boring. If your kitchen cabinets could use an upgrade, go for something that’s transitional, clean, and bright. Gray is the go-to, and these examples prove it.
Dove gray is the perfect choice for a soft look that combines rustic with modern. Paired with the right hardware and wood floors, you can achieve the ideal amount of warmth, coolness, and endless chicness.
An industrial kitchen begs for sleek touches. A silky gray hue accented with chrome hardware is just what you need to achieve a fresh look that’s not too stark. When combined with open shelving and light wood floors, you’ll achieve an inviting space to cook in.
Layers of Gray
Who says you can’t paint a whole kitchen in different shades of gray? This look combines dark gray walls with light gray cabinets and even lighter gray wood floors for a layered look that comes off as both moody and bright.
Dark colors can be intimidating to paint within a home. But you just have to do it right! A medium-dark gray looks sleek in a kitchen where everything else is bright white. Here, white walls, white subway tile backsplash, and light wood flooring serve as the ideal juxtaposition to the rich gray cabinets.
Small Kitchen Gray
Respect a small kitchen with a tidy work space and stylish accents. Playing with paint color is a great way to freshen things up. So long as you keep the countertops uncluttered, and choose light touches for flooring and walls, deep gray cabinets can look beautiful.
Pops of Color with Gray
Often, a very mellow neutral color is chosen to accent bright pops of color in a space. But a more daring neutral like gray shouldn’t be overlooked. This fun-meets-chic kitchen is the perfect example. A bold yellow appliance pairs well with gray cabinets.
This fresh space uses a gray with a warm undertone to break up the beautifully cool layers happening in the kitchen space. The gray extends from the cabinets to the floor for a waterfall look that makes the room feel larger. Meanwhile, another section of cabinets plays with white that works wonderfully with the sleek marble backsplash beneath it.
Draw the eye up in a small kitchen by choosing two different neutral colors for lower and upper cabinets. Here, the lower cabinets use a beautiful “graceful gray,” while the upper cabinets use white for a gorgeous vertical contrast.
Mega Modern Gray
Go for a sleek look with low profile cabinetry. This idea transforms the cabinets into a spacious wall with intriguing dimension. The dark gray walls, gray countertops and cupboards, and concrete floor lend to a mega modern style.
