5. Gray Is The New White

Seventy-one percent of NKBA designers said gray is the fastest-growing color scheme for kitchens in 2014. The kitchen industry’s leading manufacturers say that while white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is the shade that they are betting on to break white’s top spot. There is nothing boring about gray cabinetry. Gray, however, can be a bit tricky. In cold climates, gray can appear frozen unless you use it on warm materials or pair it with hot colors. On the other hand, gray can look pleasantly cool in sunny or hot climates. Gray is neutral and close enough to white.
