Gorgeous Grey Kitchen Ideas

Every one of them chic, smart and timeless...

When it comes to kitchen colour ideas, grey is the shade with the X-factor. Smart, stylish and versatile, grey kitchen cabinets have the power to suit virtually any scheme; from traditional country style kitchens with Shaker-style painted cabinets to utilitarian and industrial schemes  with polished or rough concrete surfaces. More dramatic shades of matt grey create instant impact, while the metallic shine of chrome and steel creates a squeaky clean, modern aesthetic.

Paler shades of grey are chic and sophisticated while steely, charcoals and graphites make for a moodier, more dramatic space.

You could go for wall-to-wall grey, or mix different shades together, leaving walls white to create a restful scheme. For something a little bolder, contrast grey cabinetry with a completely different colour, mix in some patterned tiles – or other materials, such as rich timber or luxurious marble.

Base cabinets in darker shades than wall cupboards help ground the design and prevent it looking top heavy.

Brass kitchen handles give grey cabinetry an instantly chic touch. A modern kitchen island in chrome or painted in a deeper or contrasting colour to the wall cabinets will make it a focal point in a grey kitchen.
