Light + Airy

Elongated, shaker-style cabinetry lines the wall in this kitchen. The soft gray color allows the modern space to have a sense of relaxation, without the cabinets being overwhelming.

Rich With Warmth

If you’re aiming for a deep, rich vibe in your kitchen, but scared to take the plunge to black, charcoal gray is the way to go. The eye-catching hue seen in the cabinets, adds a welcome pop of color this modern-chic, gourmet kitchen.

All-White Alternative

Let’s face it — an all-white kitchen can be totally intimidating. That’s where the versatile shade of gray comes in. The light gray cabinets in this space add just the right amount of color, while still giving off that same bright and airy vibe.

A Cool Gray

Say goodbye to cream and beige and hello to the hot new neutral shade — blue gray. Shaker-style cabinets frame this stylish, modern kitchen designed by Swan Architecture.

Gray on Gray

Gray kitchens are all the rage right now — and for good reason. Gray cabinets and gray countertops combine to bring big character and allow the finishes to shine in this home’s kitchen designed by Mirador Group.

Farmhouse Flair

As seen on HGTV’s Home Town, this home’s updated kitchen features contemporary, envy-worthy cabinetry in a gorgeous gray. The shade pairs smoothly with the new brick backsplash.

Contrasting Colors

Contrasting colors, gray and white, fill this chic kitchen. Designer Lindsay Chambers updated the space with distressed-gray lower cabinets and white upper cabinets, to add interest to the otherwise forgotten kitchen element.

Hardware Spotlight

One thing we love about gray cabinets, besides the versality of the shade, is that the neutral hue allows for kitchen hardware to really pop. Here, trendy brass fixtures stand out in this all gray-and-white kitchen.

Washed Gray

Washed gray, flat panel cabinets steal the show in this industrial-inspired kitchen. The edgy gray-brown hue seen on the cabinets, pairs seamlessly with the white subway tile backsplash.

Trendy Two-Toned

With so many shades of gray to choose from, it’s hard to pick just one. A lighter hue adorns the cabinets, while a dark gray covers the kitchen island, making this space feel warm and inviting.

A Calming Backdrop

Create a calming atmosphere in your space with a neutral shade, such as gray. Pale gray cabinetry acts as a simple backdrop for the glitz and glam of this bold kitchen island.

A Modern Take

Steer away from a lackluster kitchen with one-of-a-kind, custom cabinets. Lacquered cabinets in a lighter shade of gray, turn up the uniqueness factor in the space.

Create Depth

In this kitchen a charcoal-gray, wood-grain-inspired texture surrounds the lower cabinets and island. "I didn’t want to create a dark kitchen, but I wanted some depth," says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. "By keeping the darker finish below, it anchors the room visually and then adding the contrasting white up top keeps the room from darkening."

Marble's Best Friend

This small kitchen is full of graceful style with its gray cabinets, gray-green backsplash, marble countertops and golden accents. The color of the cabinetry ties in the veins in the showstopping, marble waterfall countertop feature.

Eye-Catching Glam

Give those contractor grade cabinets a makeover with a fresh coat of paint. A simple-yet-versatile hue, like blue-gray, can really turn up the glam factor in the kitchen.
