BHG.com Kitchens Kitchen Cabinets Cabinet Styles Gray Kitchen Cabinets One of the most popular trends in kitchen design is gray cabinets. They are versatile options that can look Old World or modern, traditional or contemporary. And, depending on the style of the doors, they can even bridge the line in a transitional space. Here are some considerations to help determine whether this hot look is right for you. By Sarah Egge Facebook Pinterest Twitter Google Plus Email Print More Oops, we’re sorry. Something went wrong.

If your kitchen is small or has limited natural light, dark gray cabinets will only make it feel smaller and darker. Deep, saturated hues absorb light, whereas light shades bounce light back into the room, amplifying the brightness in the space. continue reading below Warm or Cool While gray may seem like a straightforward color, it is actually deeply influenced by reds, yellows, and blues. The influencing hue or undertone can make the color appear cooler or warmer. For example, a gray with a blue undertone will be a steely shade; a gray with a red undertone will be a putty tone, similar to taupe. To understand how these shades work in your space, tape paint chips of several gray shades next to each other on your wall and examine them throughout the day. You’ll see the variation in color from one to the next, and you’ll eventually find one that appeals most to you. If the cabinets are not customizable and you are selecting from a set palette, ask the cabinet company to let you borrow several finish samples or doors to test in your space. Stained or Painted You have a choice whether to select painted cabinets, which are covered in an opaque gray hue, or stained cabinets, which have a translucent finish that allows some wood grain to show through. Just as with paint colors, there are variations of pale and dark stains. Painted cabinets offer a crisp, even coloration, and are easily wiped down. Stained cabinets have visual texture that highlights the wood underneath. With the proper protective coating, they too can be easily cleaned. Countertop Colors Virtually any countertop color looks good with gray kitchen cabinets. You have endless options because gray works as a neutral hue similar to white, brown, and tan. You can pick a splashy countertop color, such as aqua, or go for a sophisticated monochromatic look using slate or stainless steel. Natural stone, such as granite and marble, is a popular complement to these cabinets because there is often gray veining or flecks in the stone. A Mix of Colors Another popular trend in kitchen design — combining two cabinet colors in the same space — works perfectly when one of the colors is gray. Because gray is a neutral shade, it complements all hues and pairs well with most every color. Gray cabinets also work with any wood tone, so you can choose stained mahogany cabinets for the island, for example, and a cement gray for the wall cabinets. One approach is to stick to similar shades and intensities, such as butter yellow with dove gray, for a cohesive look. Another style is to play with contrast, such as charcoal with ivory, which creates a dynamic space.

If so, you’re in the right place. While we do offer gray cabinets by Ginger Creek Cabinets and Wellborn Cabinets, our best selling in stock cabinet is unfinished, meaning that it’s ready for paint. Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to do a kitchen remodel on a budget. This is a perfect style for DIY’ers or those looking for a more unique cabinet color. We have compiled our list of the top 10 gray cabinet paint colors from Benjamin Moore. While there are other paint companies that have gorgeous grays, we have always had success in cabinet painting with Benjamin Moore. It’s also easy to find the exact color match in case you need to purchase more, which is almost impossible at big box store. So here we go!Our Favorite Benjamin Moore Gray Cabinet Paint Colors1. Benjamin Moore Nimbus This gorgeous, light gray blends almost seamlessly with white, which makes it a great accent color. The dark hardwood looks great, but a light tile would also add to the serenity of the room. 2. Benjamin Moore Deep SpaceI absolutely love Deep Space! It is the perfect combination of navy and gray, two amazing colors to decorate with. The lemons add just the right touch of yellow, which works perfectly with blues and grays.3. Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray As always, the swatches look different than the painted cabinets, which is why it is SO important to do test strips on whatever you’re painting. The species of wood could change it, the lighting in the room, and the materials sitting right next to them. Make sure to do your test strips in the room that the painted piece will be living in! 4. Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal I love Kendall Charcoal because of the richness of the color. It’s dark, but not dreary. It works perfectly next to the white subway tile & chrome hardware (Although Brass hardware would look incredible)! 5. Benjamin Moore Edgecomb GrayEdgecomb Gray is unique because it is as close to a tan as you can get while still being in the gray family. Tan works with virtually every color or finish, so it’s extremely versatile. Get the coordination of tan with the fashion statement that gray creates!6. Benjamin Moore Boothbay Gray You may recall this from our “Celebrity Gray Kitchens” blog. This is Jennifer Lopez’ kitchen/dining room, and I fell in love with the color the first time I saw it! In this lighting, it looks much more blue, but again, this is why it is so important to test your paint. What looks blue in this space (Maybe by the ocean?) may take on more of a brownish gray tone in a different setting. 7. Benjamin Moore FieldstoneThis is another one of my favorites, that has a tint of tan, similar to Edgecomb Gray. I think this makes the space look very natural and earthy, even with all that marble! It gives the space a ‘down to earth’ look, in my opinion. It also looks amazing with those live flowers!8. Benjamin Moore Gray OwlGray Owl is a fairly standard light gray with a  slight touch of brown undertones. It is a very versatile color that can match anything from black quartz countertops, to brown and gold speckled granite. 9. Benjamin Moore Galveston GrayGavelston Gray is an amazing medium toned gray. In the image above it has more of a craftsman feel, but would easily work in a costal kitchen, as well as with traditional, contemporary, or farmhouse style! 10. Benjamin Moore Pigeon GrayLast but definitely not least is Pigeon Gray. This is one of the most elegant gray cabinet paint colors that we’ve featured. It has a warmth to it, without being too light. It is a true gray that you can use to spice up your kitchen cabinets or bath cabinets, as seen here.Check back soon for our “How to paint kitchen cabinets” tutorial and get that perfect gray you’ve been dreaming of!Happy Remodeling!Share the Remodeling Love!Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Related
