Gray Modern Kitchens
Gray Kitchens: Nothing spells "sleek" and "refined" like the color gray. Known as the ultimate neutral tone, midway between white and black, gray makes an excellent choice for a background kitchen color. The color gray reminds us of wisdom, knowledge, and intellect. Modern gray cabinets show a high level of sophistication, and are often found in high-end kitchens and modern homes.
Gray Kitchens - Trends: Gray is essentially a timeless color. Perhaps because we associate it with black and white photography, gray is perceived as a classic, long-lasting color. Like a gray suit or skirt, a classy gray kitchen should never look dated. Contemporary and modern kitchens often emphasize monochromatic color schemes (black, white, and gray), as you'll see here. You'll find dozens of pictures of kitchens on this site featuring gray cabinets, either as the central color or as a contrasting accent in two-tone kitchens.
Gray Kitchens - Everyday Use: Gray is an excellent color for everyday use. Dust will not be immediately visible on a gray surface, so constant cleaning will not be absolutely necessary. Your modern gray kitchen should be treated like a pair of gray dress pants. They're easier to care for than white or black cabinets, but cleanliness is still important since gray is such a sleek and refined color. Since dust tends to stand out visually on a dark surface, dark gray kitchen cabinets may require more frequent gentle dusting than lighter gray cabinets. Planning in advance can pay off with a lifetime of enjoyment in your modern gray kitchen.
