More and more homeowners are opting out of the popular all-white or wood-brown cabinet styles to try out grey painted kitchen cabinets. 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. A pale grey in eggshell reflects a softer atmosphere – like puffy clouds in the sky which is quite feminine in feel, and would suit a bedroom, family room even a boy’s nursery. Conversely, a pale grey in a gloss is much more contemporary, lending itself to a stainless steel, modern and edgier look. This is a great look for an office or a kitchen.

Gray is a go-to in kitchens for designer Susan Greenleaf, so it was only natural that she painted the kitchen of her San Francisco home in the hue. “ Gray always provides a classic, sophisticated, and clean base against which art, textiles, wood, and metal look fantastic,” Susan says. Gray is a neutral that's been taking center stage lately in many homes. It often gets categorized as being too cold, but with the right shade, it can work wonders in a kitchen. Best of all, it pairs beautifully with a wide array of other colors and is the perfect base to build upon in a kitchen. It also works well as a countertop or cabinet color.
