Carr Kitchen Design Tip: Is Gray The New White?

White has been one of the dominating kitchen colors for a while now. White gives your kitchen a clean and modern feel. Now, more and more shades of gray appear to become equally popular when it comes to modern kitchen designs. Grays are starting to dominate countertops and cabinets. Some designers suggest that gray could be the new white.

About Gray

Gray has sometimes been called too cold of a color, but experts say a soft, soothing gray can ground a kitchen and even create calm feel in one of the busiest rooms in most houses. Gray countertops actually pair nicely with navy blue cabinets. Bold colors, gray can complement, include yellow, orange and pumpkin or even pink and raspberry. Which complementary color you choose really depends on how bold you are.

Gray Countertops

Right now, along with natural stone, quartz countertops are very popular. Natural stones such as marble and granite can have different shades of gray and quartz, of course, can come in all kinds of colors including gray. If you need help designing your kitchen and choosing the right countertop ask the experts. Carr Stone & Tile can help you narrow down the types of stone that give your kitchen the perfect look.
