When it comes to selecting a great color for a transitional kitchen design, there’s not many other options that come to my mind that are more perfect than a gorgeous shade of gray. In my opinion, I find that its pretty comical that while the rest of the world is obsessing over 50 Shades of Grey, I’m pouring over actual shades of gray in order to find one that’s best suited for my current kitchen design.
Here at Studio M, we’ve completed a few projects in recent years and one of my all-time favorite shades of gray, without a doubt, has got to be Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. This soft and subtle shade gives just the right amount of color to be noticed without looking too trendy or easily dated. Currently, my kitchen cabinets are a dark mahogany stained wood finish and I’ve really been considering giving this dark space a lighter look that both the homeowner and future tenants would be sure to appreciate once I move out in the future.
If you’ve got a transitional kitchen style like mine, I’d say that both gray and white look stunningly beautiful when complementing each other. For instance, gray cabinetry (both upper and lower) looks amazing when paired with a Carrera marble countertop and white subway tile backsplash. Clean lines and soft shades will keep your kitchen feeling fresh and stylish for quite a few years to come.
What I also love about a good gray kitchen design is that you can really get creative with hardware since your cabinetry color is so neutral. Warm brass tones can really give a space a designer feel, especially if you can pull this out in other areas like fancy ranges or pendant lights over an island countertop. You truly can never go wrong with this classically transitional gray kitchen style!
