Grey is continuing its run as a popular colour for kitchens.
However, many still consider it an unconventional choice and worry that it could be seen as a bit boring or expressionless. But, as demonstrated by the increasing number of gorgeous grey kitchens we are producing, that certainly isn’t the case.
Is grey a fad?
At Great British Kitchens & Interiors, we believe that grey has never been a “fad”. Over the past 30 years we have regularly produced stunning grey kitchens. Grey has been used in and around the home pretty much forever. Grey exists abundantly in nature and prominently in our surroundings so it simply cannot be considered as just a fad.
Is grey dull?
We all need a little bit of colour in our lives. Colour sets the mood and the tone of the home. Some colours are animated and energetic while others are much more calming and relaxing.
People sometimes think grey is characterless compared to its more vibrant counterparts. The trick is to pair it with a warm material, such as wood or alternate tones and textures. Go for a painted ash door and see how the light catches the woodgrain to add charm and subtle character to your kitchen.
Matching grey with other colours
Grey will work with any other colour you might want to bring into your kitchen. It also blends beautifully with polished chrome and other metals.
Introduce accent colours
You can instantly add accent colour and modify the tone of your room by changing your accessories. Swap out vases and fruit bowls for those of a different colour or pattern from time to time. This inexpensive facelift can dramatically alter the mood of your room.
Perhaps the easiest and most versatile means of adding a touch of colour to your kitchen is simply the addition of bright, colourful flowers.
Whether an ornate arrangement or a simple bunch, flowers can instantly transform your space. And, what’s more, you can change your flower colours as often as you desire.
Grey for traditional kitchens
Grey isn’t just for contemporary kitchens, of course.
If you aren’t into bold colours but don’t want an all-white kitchen either, consider a light, warm grey for your walls or cabinetry. Wood floors will add warmth and charm. The kitchen remains classy, clean, bright and airy while the rich wood floor adds the perfect dose of warmth and character.
