Gray cabinets in kitchens are nothing short of classic, elegant, and timeless – no matter the kitchen style. To keep gray from looking too dreary, designers often pair the cabinets with a warm material like a wood countertop or butcher block. Wood countertops and butcher blocks add warmth and texture to the cool tones of gray kitchens.

Wood Countertops with Blue Cabinetry
