Happy April Fool’s Day! Even though it is April 1st, it’s no joke that grays in the kitchen are a rising trend – it’s the second most popular shade to use in the kitchen, right behind the ever popular and old faithful, white. The NKBA 2013 trend report states:
“Used currently in 55% of kitchens and 56% of bathrooms, shades of gray are growing in appeal, creating chic, sophisticated spaces that many consumers desire.
Just like working with white, gray is a great pick because it allows for pops of color in a neutral space, and it gives your kitchen a sort of understated elegance and class. It’s a little more edgy than the traditional white kitchen, it’s a refreshing neutral. Depending on the look you want, you can mix different shades of gray like in the mood board below, or you can create gray accents – like a single wall, just the kitchen island, or a gray backsplash if you’re not entirely sure about going all gray.
In the image below, the main shade of the kitchen is most definitely gray, but there are call outs to white accents, and the usage of different patterns and textures, that make something about this kitchen just so fun.
