It seems like the white kitchen trend has been dominating our industry for some time now. Although the look is classic and timeless, we all know what to expect: light natural stone or quartz counter tops with stark white cabinets and a complimentary hardware finish, such as brushed nickel.
Simply put, white will never go out of style when it comes to kitchen design and décor. Having said that, we are seeing another colour creep into this high-traffic room and that colour is grey.
Grey has quickly become the modern neutral of this generation’s homes. Many young couples and families are choosing grey-coloured hues for a variety rooms; grey is easily layered with other colours, glamorous and looks clean to the naked eye.
Many young families are drawn to grey in their interior design and décor, particularly because they have small children running around. One colour that doesn’t go too well with children is white. Grey is a perfect colour to hide messes and unsightly imperfections in cleaning mastery. So, instead of the stark and unforgiving white cabinets, homeowners are looking for sophistication and efficiency in bringing grey to the mix.
We see a lot of function with this movement. Grey is a wonderfully refined colour to bring into a space, especially a kitchen where many family members gather for celebrations and meals. Grey cabinets can help warm up a white or light kitchen counter, really neutralising the tone of the room. Not only is it easier to clean, it goes very well with white & both many light and dark natural stone and quartz counter tops. White kitchen fanatics out there, rest assured: you can have the best of both worlds.
