Gray Stain Kitchen Cabinet Design in Allentown, PA by Christine Shorr, CKBD

This gray stain kitchen cabinet design in Allentown, PA by Morris Black designer Christine Shorr, CKBD is an exquisite display of blending different tones within the same color palette. Keep reading for a look into how she mixed different gray stains in this Allentown, PA kitchen design.

Dark Gray Stained Kitchen Cabinets

The perimeter cabinets of this Allentown, PA kitchen are Kraftmaid Cabinetry’s Grandview Half Oak in Cannon Gray Stain. This dark stain has gray undertones, allowing it to blend nicely into the gray color scheme while avoiding one solid slab of the same color. The use of this dark gray on the perimeter grounds the space and visually defines the kitchen from other areas.


Light Gray Stained Kitchen Cabinets

The island of this Allentown, PA kitchen features KraftMaid Cabinetry Marquette Half Maple cabinets with a River Rock Aged finish. This stain is a true light gray that offers a similar look to paint, but with a bit more of a rustic feel as the natural characteristics of the wood still come through. This light gray stain was the perfect choice for the island because it balances the darkness of the perimeter cabinets.


What Colors Go with Gray Kitchen Cabinets?

The way Christine paired the gray stained cabinets with white countertops and light stone tile backsplash is a stroke of genius. Both elements provide a nice contrast to the darker perimeter stain while the subtle gray veining of the white quartz matches beautifully with the lighter island stain. The gray cabinet stain is further complimented by the light gray walls, weather nickel hardware, and GE® stainless steel appliances.
