Using Gray in Your Home

Using Gray in Your Home

Adding color to a room can be a fun way to make it over and breathe new life into an old space. You might consider color in new décor, on your walls, or in your window treatments. But you still need to decide which color or colors to use. At Shutter Guy serving the greater Charleston area, we can help. Speak with a trained consultant today!

Is Gray a New Popular Choice?

Many HGTV designers, including Chip and Joanna Gaines, are choosing gray for interior design in places like flooring, walls, cabinets, bathroom tile, kitchen backsplash, countertops, and window treatments. They even use gray concrete kitchen sinks. Gray can convey seriousness and the message “I mean business.” It is inspirational and aspirational. When we see gray, we think timelessness, dependability, and quality. You can choose from warm grays (yellow-based) or cool grays (blue-based) to be a versatile backdrop for any style of furniture, artwork, and accessories. Perfect for the bedroom, it can fit with traditional, modern, cottage, or any style of bedroom retreat.

Hunter Douglas Window Treatments

Multiple shades of gray paired with complementary cool tones creates a sense of being at ease and peaceful. You can achieve this through window treatments, such as the Hunter Douglas Salt and Pepper hardwood shutter called Heritance®. This exclusive shutter collection offers several techniques to enhance the inherent character and color of the genuine hardwood: glazed, heirloom distressed, rustic, and textured. The product line’s wide range of frame types can fit any décor. For a vertical drape, consider the Charred Wood colored Provenance® Woven Wood drape by Hunter Douglas. You can create a conversation piece for any room by adding a dark edge banding to the woven reeds, grasses, and woods.
