4 ways to style a grey kitchen

Personalise your grey kitchen with these inspirational décor tips

Newbury Grey

The grey kitchens trend is here to stay, so how can you adapt this season’s most popular cabinet shade to match your personal taste?

It’s no surprise that grey is fast becoming the kitchen colour of choice in homes across the globe. Versatile enough to complement a huge variety of hues, materials and décor styles, yet striking enough to make a statement, grey offers the perfect balance between the contemporary and the classic.

So if you’re considering grey’s soothing hues for your next kitchen renovation, we’ve compiled a list of four very different decoration approaches to make this stand-out shade your own.

Plant power

Fresh bursts of green foliage create the perfect contrast with kitchen cabinets in neutral grey tones, not to mention that certain common pot plants like Aloe Vera can even help to purify the air in your kitchen by neutralising the chemicals found in cleaning products. Place verdant green house plants and herbs on open shelves or windowsills, matching with solid wood worktops and wooden furnishings to complete the natural look.

Bold is beautiful

Conjure up a sense of drama by pairing kitchen cabinets in grey hues with dark granite worktops. Add matt black light fixtures and brushed chrome appliances to create a minimalist look fit for a Michelin starred chef, and complete the transformation with the latest innovative kitchen technology, from smart storage solutions to cutting edge gadgets.

Copper chic

Combine two of 2018’s biggest kitchen trends by mixing grey kitchen cabinets with chic copper finishing touches, from statement copper handles and light fixtures to copper-plated cookware. This luxurious look is best suited to framed slab style kitchens like the Newbury Grey, and works particularly well when combined with luxurious marble-effect worktops.

Colourful contrast

Prefer a brighter kitchen? Grey cabinets make the perfect backdrop for bright pops of colour, from fresh yellow and bold red to calming pale blues or refined forest green. Opt for a coloured feature wall or kitchen splashback for a truly head-turning look, or go for the subtle approach by choosing several accessories and soft furnishings in a consistent shade.
