The Perception of Color Gray
At first glance, gray seems like an odd color to choose for the kitchen, an area that is often associated with bright and overly warm colors. Why is it then, that more and more homeowners are opting for gray-themed kitchens? The answer is in the perception of the color.
A kitchen where everything is gray in color is bound to be dull and quite depressing. Can you imagine a gray floor, gray walls, a gray ceiling, gray everything? But in this case, we are talking about using one aspect of the kitchen, the countertops, to create the perfect décor for your cooking space. A kitchen adorned with gray counters, and the right matching colors, is far from dull or depressing. The experience perception is far more positive.
- There is a feeling of expectation. Gray Countertops build anticipation for other aspects of the kitchen. You cannot wait to see the cabinets, the floor, the backsplash, and so on. In a way, gray allows other elements of the kitchen décor to stand out. Instead of boring, gray actually makes the kitchen more exciting.
- An atmosphere of style and luxury. Step into a gray-themed kitchen and you will think you are in some high-end condo. Gray has an unmistakable feeling of classic style and unmitigated luxury.
- Relaxing yet exciting. There is a certain hard-to-explain way in which gray causes a deep sense of relaxation yet sparks excitement through its contrast with other nearby colors and textures.
The gray color is a projection of attributes such as cool, wise, knowledgeable, quiet, peaceful, and clean. Gray Countertops will transform your kitchen into a place of tranquility, warmth, and relaxation. What more would you want for one of the most important spaces in your home
