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.

A custom distressed Walnut countertop brings warmth to this small gray kitchen designed by Stefan Hurray of Architect Design. The countertops feature a Standard Roman Ogee edge profile finished in a hand rubbed black glaze.
Wood-Mode designed a Saxon Wood™ countertop to grace the gray cabinetry in this mudroom space. The dark streaks in the wood compliment the dark gray color of the cabinets, while the lighter tones provide warmth and comfort.
A Zebrawood Butcher Block sits perfectly on this gray cabinet with open shelving. Lisa Martin of Signature Custom Cabinetry designed this display for the 2015 Signature Custom Cabinetry Conference. The dark gray mixed with warm wood tones create an intricate appeal.
Karen Swanson of New England Design Works added a Walnut butcher block to the light gray kitchen island in this modern farmhouse kitchen. Adding warmth to the kitchen, the butcher block also provides a food preparation work space.
