The newesthue on the market for appliances and plumbing fixtures is graphite gray.Graphite is a darker gray than stainless steel and doesn’t have the industriallook of a restaurant kitchen. It’s a rich, elegant hue that isn’t as harsh asblack or as severe as white, so it’s a nice middle ground.

We thinkgraphite really pops against white cabinets and dove grey cabinets,  butsoft blues or soft green cabinets would be pretty as well. It’s another optionfor plumbing fixtures instead of oil-rubbed bronze, chrome or nickel.
