It’s certainly not new news that gray is the go-to paint color for home interiors. Flip open the pages of any home decor magazine or log in to Pinterest and you’ll see a plethora of gray rooms, gray cabinets, and gray houses. With all of the different shades of gray available, it can be daunting to settle on the right hue for your space, so we have a few go-to colors that will point you in the right direction.

CHELSEA GRAY |

First up we have this deep shade of gray, perfect for cabinets or moody walls. We’ve used this shade on a clients mudroom built-in cabinetry and it hides dirt in high traffic areas beautifully!

This shade has a lovely blue/green hue. It can be tricky in a space without much natural light, so take the time to paint a large sample and be sure you like the color in all lighting throughout the day.

SIDE NOTE:

  • North facing rooms have a tendency to make colors look darker and grayer and enhance any undertones of purple, blue or green.
  • South facing rooms enhance warmer colors, so you can work with cooler shades in these spaces.

We’ve said this many times because we really mean it, ALWAYS paint a sample before committing the paint to an entire room! It’s worth the extra effort!

 

Happy Painting!
