Within the last year or so, there seems to have been a shift from gray, to whites. While gray walls and flooring are beginning to phase out, gray is still a wonderful timeless options when it comes to kitchen cabinets. The key is to find a gray that also offer warmth and that isn't too cool of a gray and therefore will clash with warmer colors.
Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore is one of my favorite grays. It pairs well with so many different colors but also gives a dramatic effect. It has just the right amount of brown mixed into the grays and dependent on the lighting, Chelsea Gray can look different from room to room. With ample lighting it is a light gray with hints of brown and in a darker setting it is much more brown and almost gives off hints of dark green.
This is a beautiful option for a kitchen island paired with bright white cabinets. It is dramatic while remaining neutral so there's no concern with clashing with flooring, furniture, countertops, or decor.
