The Color Gray Is So Hot-Northern VA

March 08, 2017


Yes. You read that right. HOT. And it’s EVERYWHERE these days.

Could gray be the perfect neutral? It can be delicate and calm, or strong and sophisticated. Designers love it for its ability to make other colors “pop” in a room, or to cool off warmer tones like wood floors and cabinetry.

Adding different tones to a gray paint will determine whether you have a serene and spa-like feel with a bluer cast, or a warmer gray with a nice earthy brown cast.

When comparing grays, line a few paint sample blocks together to determine the cooler shades versus the warmer shades.

Here is just a sampling of the 95 different shades of gray paints Sherwin Williams has to offer,

Something for everyone! From a warmer, comforting gray like the Roycroft Mist Gray to a cooler, clean feel of the Colonial Revival Gray.

However, gray’s popularity hasn’t stopped at paint. Far from it. Cabinets, countertops, flooring, tile, furniture – its popularity can be tracked across multiple industries. How do you feel about using gray in your next home remodeling project?
