Something about grey works just perfectly for kitchens. The color teeters between a relaxing neutrality and an exciting warmth, managing to provide the best of both worlds. Of course, depending on what shade of grey you choose, your kitchen could be closer to one end or the other.There is a feeling of expectation. Gray cabinets build anticipation for other aspects of the kitchen. You cannot wait to see the countertop, the floor, the backsplash and so on. In a way, gray allows other elements of the kitchen décor to stand out. Instead of boring, gray actually makes the kitchen more exciting.
