Color Craving: Shades of Gray


eHow Home Blog

As a realtor, I know a bit about what it takes to sell a home, but with so many designed-to-sell shows pouring out of our TV sets, it doesn’t take a real estate professional to let you know the neutral rule holds true. Before you cringe at the thought of khaki taking over your living room, however, let’s step outside of the traditional neutral box and think about shades of gray. Still serving as a clean and simple color palate, gray also dishes up an interesting twist on the traditional neutral.

Gray adds a sophisticated twist to any bedroom. Peaceful and relaxing, almost anyone can picture themselves sleeping in on a lazy Saturday.


Not a fan of white cabinets, but still want an option that appeals to most? Consider gray for your kitchen.


A spa-like retreat without going down the blue or green path, shades of gray paired with crisp white offers a clean, chic feel for the bathroom.

Even kids’ rooms can jump on the bandwagon without losing playfulness. By using several shades of gray, this contemporary take hits the nail on the head.
