Gray is ever growing in popularity as a base color for many homes, especially in bathrooms and kitchens. It still may seem a bit dreary, but when done correctly, it can actually be a huge feature color for your home. I may be a bit biased, as gray is my favorite color, but it wouldn’t be true if multiple gray paints weren’t awarded the “top color” for 2017.
The key here, when choosing how you want to add gray to your kitchen, is balance. If your home is wall-to-ceiling gray, it may feel bland and dull. Accenting with white, or vice versa, is a great start, if you aren’t too keen on making a big, bold, change. When paired with natural elements, such as plants, wood furniture, and ceramics, the accessories are the perfect balance for all the gray.
If you’re into more “fun” spaces, gray also works well with bright color accents. Bright yellow or red accents such as some bar stool chairs or appliances could be exactly the pop you desire.
Another idea, if you’re not into gray cabinets, is choosing gray as the accent color. Adding concrete countertops rather than traditional granite or quartz, is not only in style, it is durable, a bit rustic, and absolutely gorgeous. Adding concrete counters on top of a beautiful white kitchen is a great way to jump on the trend without overdoing it.
Don’t want concrete counters? Gray walls are another great way to add this famous color to your home. Light gray walls can keep the room feeling open, without the walls being a stark, plain, white. Light enough to reflect the natural light from the windows, but contrasting enough to keep the kitchen multidimensional.
