Many a beautiful kitchen have been built on a foundation of pretty normal, neutral cabinetry. But if you ever have the opportunity to renovate a kitchen from scratch and add in something really spectacular in the realm of cabinetry, it's like a shortcut to great style.

In fact, according to a study by the National Kitchen & Bath Association, the use of gray in kitchens rose from just 9 percent in 2010 to 55 percent in the final months of 2012. In its palest form, it elicits a sense of calm, while its darker incarnations exude drama and mystery. Shown here: Crystal Cabinet’s new gray stains: Driftwood and Greystone.
