You've probably seen the enormous resurgence of gray in home decor lately, and you might be looking for the best gray cabinet paint colors to hop on board with this trend. If so, you're in the right place. While we do offer gray cabinets by Ginger Creek Cabinets and Wellborn Cabinets, our best selling in stock cabinet is unfinished, meaning that it's ready for paint. Painting your kitchen cabinets is a great way to do a kitchen remodel on a budget. This is a perfect style for DIY'ers or those looking for a more unique cabinet color. We have compiled our list of the top 10 gray cabinet paint colors from Benjamin Moore. While there are other paint companies that have gorgeous grays, we have always had success in cabinet painting with Benjamin Moore. It's also easy to find the exact color match in case you need to purchase more, which is almost impossible at big box store. So here we go!
Our Favorite Benjamin Moore Gray Cabinet Paint Colors
1. Benjamin Moore Nimbus
This gorgeous, light gray blends almost seamlessly with white, which makes it a great accent color. The dark hardwood looks great, but a light tile would also add to the serenity of the room.
I absolutely love Deep Space! It is the perfect combination of navy and gray, two amazing colors to decorate with. The lemons add just the right touch of yellow, which works perfectly with blues and grays.

3. Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray
As always, the swatches look different than the painted cabinets, which is why it is SO important to do test strips on whatever you’re painting. The species of wood could change it, the lighting in the room, and the materials sitting right next to them. Make sure to do your test strips in the room that the painted piece will be living in!
4. Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal
I love Kendall Charcoal because of the richness of the color. It’s dark, but not dreary. It works perfectly next to the white subway tile & chrome hardware (Although Brass hardware would look incredible)!
5. Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray
Edgecomb Gray is unique because it is as close to a tan as you can get while still being in the gray family. Tan works with virtually every color or finish, so it’s extremely versatile. Get the coordination of tan with the fashion statement that gray creates!
6. Benjamin Moore Boothbay Gray
You may recall this from our “Celebrity Gray Kitchens” blog. This is Jennifer Lopez’ kitchen/dining room, and I fell in love with the color the first time I saw it! In this lighting, it looks much more blue, but again, this is why it is so important to test your paint. What looks blue in this space (Maybe by the ocean?) may take on more of a brownish gray tone in a different setting.
7. Benjamin Moore Fieldstone
This is another one of my favorites, that has a tint of tan, similar to Edgecomb Gray. I think this makes the space look very natural and earthy, even with all that marble! It gives the space a ‘down to earth’ look, in my opinion. It also looks amazing with those live flowers!
8. Benjamin Moore Gray Owl
Gray Owl is a fairly standard light gray with a slight touch of brown undertones. It is a very versatile color that can match anything from black quartz countertops, to brown and gold speckled granite.
9. Benjamin Moore Galveston Gray
Gavelston Gray is an amazing medium toned gray. In the image above it has more of a craftsman feel, but would easily work in a costal kitchen, as well as with traditional, contemporary, or farmhouse style!
10. Benjamin Moore Pigeon Gray
Last but definitely not least is Pigeon Gray. This is one of the most elegant gray cabinet paint colors that we’ve featured. It has a warmth to it, without being too light. It is a true gray that you can use to spice up your kitchen cabinets or bath cabinets, as seen here.
