Grey Matter: the Ultimate in On-Trend Kitchen Design
Grey has been the colour of choice in French interior design for years, so it's no wonder then that when it comes to grey kitchens, UK homeowners are jumping on board; from painted wood kitchens through to high gloss kitchens, every shade of grey is stylish.
Part of the attraction of a grey kitchen is the fact that it's not as dramatic as a black kitchen, and not as stark as white kitchen units. Soft grey high gloss kitchens are the perfect balance between the two, and this tonal monochrome neutral can be teamed with a black granite worktop for added style and a contemporary touch.
Instead, if you just want to add a touch of grey to your kitchen, why not incorporate grey free standing kitchen units into your overall design, or perhaps paint a wall a subtle shade of taupe or oyster?
Of course, greys have been around for some time now in the kitchen arena in the form of metallic appliances and the industrial look. The industrial design, reminiscent of a professional kitchen, works beautifully in large airy spaces, and earns extra cool points when teamed with the latest appliances.
It's a stark, sleek look, which isn't for everyone, however. So to soften the look, combine with grey kitchen units for a contemporary feel. Just adding more traditional kitchen units alongside industrial units will make a kitchen feel more homely.
Grey shades aren't just about the contemporary; traditional kitchen units work just as well in shades of grey. Just think of those classic French kitchens: painted wood kitchens look excellent in grey, which is a warm, inviting colour modern enough to lift a traditional kitchen but still neutral enough to add complementary accessories.
Take your inspiration from our neighbours across the channel and team cottage chic pieces with high gloss kitchen units – the mixture of both works wonders – and add a high quality stone worktop for the ultimate in eclectic kitchen style.
