What Countertops Go With Gray Cabinets?

What Countertops Go With Gray Cabinets?

February 12, 2018

Gray is everywhere! It’s a versatile neutral that’s anything but boring. Kitchen and bath experts have been reporting on this trend for cabinet finishes for quite some time and we’re meeting more and more customers who are coming in and looking for countertops to coordinate with various shades of gray.  

Gray offers a fresh take on a neutral color. It has a certain mystique about it, but it’s also refined and timeless.  Much like beige, gray is a calming color. It blends beautifully with black and white or shades of cream and taupe. And one reason it’s a popular kitchen cabinet color is that gray blends seamlessly with the rest of the house. 

Plus, gray is extraordinarily versatile. Gray works as well with sleek European door styles as it does with traditional or transitional styles. 

If you’re looking for a countertop to work with your gray kitchen or bath cabinets, consider these match-ups…

As you can see, white countertops are a popular choice with gray cabinets. The combination is light and fresh and helps to visually expand a space with a bright, open look. And don’t forget that mixing it up is also an option. You could choose a white or light shade for perimeter countertops and go with a slate, Black Soapstone, black quartz like Star Wars Colorquartz, or even Titanium Black granite island top.
