Colour focus: Grey Kitchens
The colour grey is undoubtedly popular when it comes to home décor and interiors, and this also applies to the kitchen. Over the past few years, here at Stoneham we have seen demand for grey kitchens rise, and what was once a trend is now a staple kitchen colour. The shade of grey you choose can determine the mood and ambience for your new kitchen; teamed with accents or a contrasting colour, you’ll find that grey is a perfect hue to create a kitchen that is individual to you.
Mix ‘n’ Match
Dark, warm greys such as our Stoneham ‘Pipe Grey’ and ‘Thunder Grey’ from our standard colour palette work particularly well contrasted with white or neutral worktops. If you prefer a lighter shade of grey, Stoneham’s ‘Sand Grey’ or ‘Dove Grey’ also work well with white worktops, but look equally striking with dark worktops. You could also mix ‘n’ match dark and pale grey kitchen cabinets – for instance try base cabinets in light grey and top, wall cabinets in dark grey or vice versa for modern aesthetic. Alternatively apply grey to just your kitchen island to make it a stand-out feature.
Small but significant features
The finishing detail can make a huge difference to the overall style of your kitchen design. Traditional shaker style kitchen cabinets look stunning with brass or bronze handles for a luxurious touch, whereas chrome or brushed steel handles suit lighter cabinets. A pop of colour can also impact your kitchen design. Opt for a bright orange fridge/freezer with dark grey-blue tones, or red kitchen accessories like a toaster or kettle against light grey cabinets.
