Tone is incredibly important when choosing grey for your kitchen. Warmer hues create a complete contrast to darker shades, such as slate, and we love the fact we can consider all surfaces from worktops to walls.

Grey and white is a wonderful combination that naturally works together and a great choice if you want a timeless look that won’t date. You can experiment with our designers to see if a matte or gloss finish works for your kitchen. Adding chrome touches gives a simple and stylish finish that compliments both colours.
Dark grey floors, such as slate tiles, dark furniture and white walls, adds depth to the room and making it feel more spacious - no matter what the size.
Curves can create an ambience of intrigue to a kitchen, especially when using strong, dark, greys. The smoother angles make the room feel softer and encourage you to move around. No matter what the size, this is an ideal way to establish an interesting kitchen that will last the test of time.
Be brave and use a variety of grey shades from light to dark to enable colours to bounce around the room. You can do this alongside clever lighting and appliances to design a captivating room as soon as you enter.
If you are concerned that using grey will create a cooler feel to your kitchen then using wood as elements will warm it up. As we say in every blog, contrast really works and using matte or gloss grey furniture alongside natural material for shelving, worktops and/or floors will create a stunning room.
By using a consistent light grey on your walls and floors against a deeper shade on your cabinets will add more depth and ensure your kitchen is the focus as you enter. The tactile wood with rich grains will add interest and colour making the design timeless.
For the brave, a dark grey used throughout a kitchen will create a room that is sophisticated, fascinating and intriguing. If this is your vibe, we strongly recommend using a designer who can establish the exact ambience you want to achieve whilst considering all the factors from room size to budget.
Lighting is incredibly important when being a little daring and ensuring you highlight the focus points of the room as well as offering practicality. This style of kitchen can be updated easily by using accent colours of the moment.
No matter the colour, shelving can have a huge impact in a kitchen. Whether you want to maintain a tidy room or are considering space, shelving can create a sense of curiosity as well as being a practical solution.
You don't need to be simple, consider shapes, angles and careful lighting to create depth and intrigue that compliments your furniture. Use as much as you dare and for those where space is a factor, shelving can be used as a functional aspect to a kitchen.
Again, this is where designers can make a huge difference, they can explore options you may not have considered and make your dream a reality.
With over 36 years experience in creating beautiful kitchens, our team of designers can inspire you with ideas that will not only be on trend, but also consider space, budget, lifestyle and the future.
