Grey is a favourite colour in many designer’s look books, and with good reason too! This neutral colour has a cool and contemporary appeal that transforms many interiors. Especially in kitchen décor, grey has an intensity and depth that far surpasses other commonly used colours. It works well across a range of home décor styles and can be combined with a range of complementary shades to offer aesthetic appeal.

Psychology of Grey

As it exudes a sense of calmness, texture and raw appeal, the colour grey blends well with backgrounds of whites, browns and blacks.  It also beautifully contrasts with cool blue and soft green accents, lending a relaxed effect to your kitchen space.

Grey, with its solidness and raw appeal, also goes well with almost every colour under the sun, from bright pinks to sunny yellows and brilliant turquoise. It sits well with any design layout and makes the cooking space appear larger and brighter.

Its neutral colour palette is versatile and engaging, providing an empty canvas around which a contemporary modern kitchen can be designed.

Still, wondering if grey is the colour you are looking for in your kitchen? Keep reading to find out all about your options! Take a look at our top grey kitchen picks:

You can add textural and tonal layers of grey to create a sense of cohesion in your space. This kitchen plays around with different intensities of grey, using darker greys for the breakfast counter and a softer shade for the walls, and pairing it with flooring that has flecks of lighter and darker shades.
