The color has been surfacing as an increasingly talked-about color in home finishes lately. And I have a few ideas about why.
To its credit, grey gives a softer-than-white contrast from the bold power choices of turquoise and yellow that are trending as popular in home decor and maybe we’re looking for calmer, relaxing hues to surround our family’s hearth.
Whatever the reason, designers are looking at grey as an increasingly popular choice for home finishes. And the product designers are giving us more options when it comes to the shades of grey. At the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, Wellborn showcased their new shades of grey including Willow.
While some designers say ‘grey is the new white,’ it’s not exactly taking over white in market share or popularity. But it’s a hue that might be perfect as a backdrop for your next remodeling project.
I was around in the 80s when gray was used EVERYWHERE in kitchens, often at the same time – flooring, cabinets, backsplashes with black appliances. It was too much and due to technology at the time, the gray cabinetry was usually laminates…and glossy 🙂 Today’s grays are worlds better – they are softer, more elegant, quiet and included in the kitchen interior in a far, far better way than before. I agree with your take!

That’s a good choice of a gray, too. That kitchen is awesome.
