The kitchen in the new house looks something like these…..
and I’m entertaining the idea of having the cabinets painted gray. I know! That’s HUGE for me since I’m all about white. But we are going to have the whole house repainted (white, of course), including the kitchen, so if I’m ever going to do something like this, now is the time.
I’m planning on using a white and gray palette throughout the house so I think a gray kitchen would tie into the rest of the house.
But the kitchen opens onto the family room (or as I recently learned, a “keeping room” as it’s sometimes called in the South) which will have white walls. I’m wondering if that would disrupt the flow?
I would probably go with a lighter shade of gray like the ones above or this:
(The marble countertops are just a little darker than the ones above and it has a farmhouse sink too which I love!)
But this dark one is very appealing too.
In the end I will probably chicken out like I always do because I’m always scared that I’ll get sick of the color. But right now, I really, really want to go for it. I’ve even collected paint swatches. So what do you think? Should I do it? Or will my love of gray fade and leave me wishing I had stuck to my tried and true white?
