Gray Inspires a Fresh Look for Kitchen and Bath Design

Gray has recently become a staple color to the interior design of homes. Designers are expanding their color palette and embracing the elegance and sophistication of varying shades of gray. Gray is becoming the hottest new color trend because it acts as a neutral hue and pairs beautifully with almost any color.

Gray doesn’t just mean cool tones. There are warm grays, light grays, dark grays and…well, you get the idea. Picking the right gray depends on the amount of natural light you have coming into your room. Do you have a lot of natural light when the sun shines in from the north? If you do, design experts suggest a warm gray to make the room feel cozy. To make sure you will love the color before jumping in, buy samples of the shades you like and paint small squares to see how it works with the natural light that hits the room during the day.

Granite Transformations is staying ahead of the curve by offering five new gray Rigid Thermofoil (RTF) cabinet colors, as well as four gray solid wood colors to add a touch of class to your kitchen or bath, pictured below.

gray cabinet colors

Granite Transformations’ cabinet refacing offerings now include five gray cabinet colors: four solid grays and one gray wood grain. All four solid grays have a matte finish and will fit into just about any design concept. Portuna Carnaval, for example, provides a more classic textured wood grain pattern with a gray washed look.

Our solid wood colors include four attractive gray options. When ordered with a satin top coat, they will provide the warm and soft look that is becoming popular with homeowners. These colors will be offered in all solid wood door styles, along with all available moldings and accessories.

This kitchen blends the classic look of traditional style cabinets in gray with glass-front doors to create an open feel. The dramatic backsplash is made from imbedding a pattern into the stone with extreme heat and pressure. This particular pattern adds excitement and movement to the room and blends beautifully with the gray cabinets.

Below are some kitchen and bath renovations by Granite Transformations featuring varying shades of gray to help inspire your new look.

Gray kitchen with mosaic tiles

Gray and white are a classic combination that creates a crisp, clean look. The Metropolis Bronzite mosaic tile feature wall (on the right of the photo below) adds a touch of urban distinction to this suburban kitchen, while the gray island is a classic focal point that brings a touch of elegance to the room.
