Who said gray is a dull color? Who said you can’t use gray color to decorate your kitchen? Who said only light colors brighten up the kitchen? Who said that? WHO?
I am here to prove them all wrong. Opting for the modern grey kitchen cabinets will be your best decision ever. The color grey indicates neutrality and balance. Weren’t you looking for something like that?
Kitchens with gray cabinets will allow your guests to praise not only your kitchen but your food as well. How? When you go for bold kitchen colors, the guest’s focus is always on the color combinations and other things (which is again a good thing).
However, don’t you feel disappointed when no one praises your food or effort? I can understand that feeling. Hence, go with the gray kitchen cabinets and have balanced compliments for both interior and your food.
Laura Esquivel once said, “Cooking is one of the longest ceremonies for life.” Hence, we all deserve to be appreciated.
