You see a lot of white kitchen cabinets these days, right? It’s one of the most popular colors out there, hands-down, and for a whole host of good reasons. 

But what if you like white cabinets, but don’t love them? Maybe you want something with a little more personality of its own; something that stands out from the pack without being a bold or “trendy” color that loses its popularity in a year or two.

That’s where gray cabinet paint really shines, offering something unique while still rocking some of the major benefits of going with white.

First, let’s take a look at a recent cabinet painting project we just finished. A little real-world inspiration. Then we’ll share a few more specific reasons why this is such a hot color for kitchen cabinets.

Skip the remodel! Professional cabinet painting in Riverbank, CA

Dark, dated, and with sections that had seen a lot of wear and tear, our client’s cabinets were more than ready for a transformation. And remember, this is a process we specialize in. Cabinet painting shouldn’t be taken lightly, and only trusted to a painting contractor with specific experience, tools, and equipment. We have it all here at Lancaster Painting, plus a mobile spray shop for the best, most efficient painting and refinishing process possible.

Why is gray a great cabinet color choice?

Here are a few of the top reasons:

  • Gray has been popular for a long time, meaning that it’s not a passing trend. There’s nothing wrong with choosing more of a “hot,” fad color, but you need to be prepared for the fact that it’s not going to be a timeless choice. That’s not a concern when you go with gray. 

  • Gray cabinets are still neutral, and play well with a huge variety of other colors and textures in your kitchen. 

  • Gray cabinets are available in a wide variety of shades and hues - you’ve got options! Whether you prefer something warmer or cooler, darker or almost white, there’s a perfect pick out there for you. 

  • Gray is also more forgiving than white, hiding smudges and splatters that naturally happen in a busy place like a kitchen. White is easy to keep clean with routine cleaning too, but gray offers a little more grace.

  • Gray is naturally calming. Color psychology tells us that the visual impact a color has on us makes a huge difference, creating a variety of different moods and energy levels. A relaxing force in the kitchen is never a bad thing.
