A grey and white kitchen has been at the top of my list of new home must-haves since we started building. It is hard to believe we are finally at the stage where we are being asked to pick out kitchen cabinet paint colors and hardware. I have had this photo saved on my computer for years as inspiration for the look I want to achieve in my future home. I think that the interior designer achieved the perfect balance between classic traditional elements combined with cool pieces of contemporary decor. In my opinion, it is the grey kitchen cabinets that tie the entire look together and make the combination of these two diverse styles really work together in harmony.
If I could have any grey and white kitchen instantly in my home, I would want it to be this one. I love how the kitchen cabinet colors pop against the deep charcoal walls, but the shade is not too bold that it distracts from the rest of the fairly monochromatic and neutral room. The white cabinetry and grey walls pair wonderfully against the ashy wood plank floor and very cool mosaic tile fireplace. Finally the stainless steel fixtures add that edgy touch that really make the space memorable. I have definitely bookmarked this grey and white modern kitchen as my perfect design should we ever decide to build from scratch or even renovate our current space.
I love any style of grey and white kitchen because I think that they are effortlessly chic and appeal to any type of buyer whether you prefer traditional or contemporary looks. Gray kitchen cabinets like this can pair well with just about any color palette you could think of because they are neutral enough to blend well with bold shades yet vibrant enough to pop against white walls like in this home. I particularly like the use of chrome accents in this specific space because the fairly monochromatic color palette evokes a very serene vibe, yet the polished chrome brightens things up a bit. I definitely encourage anybody who is on the fence about one of these grey and white kitchen designs to browse photos like these online and see just have versatile the look is.
I couldn't be more please with our new grey and white kitchen. The white kitchen with gray island is classically elegant but with enough contemporary touches to make it current. Our designer hit the ball out of the park by creating a fantastic neutral backdrop that layers patterns and various materials of the same shade to create depth and visual interest without overwhelming the space with too complex of a color palette. Because of this, the pops of indigo and bronze metal are really able to pop against the primarily white kitchen designs used throughout the space. I hope that these photos inspire some of you to create a similar look in your own homes.
A think that a grey and white kitchen is just so classic and could easily look fantastic in any style home whether it is contemporary like this particular space or even ultra traditional. The is much debate over the best choices for kitchen paint colors with white cabinets, because some designers think that you should go bold in order to make the detailing pop, whereas others believe that you should create a clean and monochromatic look. I think that grey is the perfect compromise because it is vibrant enough to stand out against the white, yet neutral enough to evoke that monochromatic look that is so on trend these days. I would definitely check out photos like these to get inspiration for how to incorporate grey kitchen ideas into your current or future home.
What I love most about a grey and white kitchen, is how this color palette can create such a beautiful and timeless space. I know that trendy looks with white kitchen cabinets are so "in" these days, but I do not want the items that I choose now to be dated and out of style in a year or two. Whether it is a month from now or 5 years from now, I want friends and family to come into my home and say "wow they have impeccable taste." This particular home with a crisp grey kitchen island, warm white cabinetry, and classic wood floors and brass fixtures is the perfect example of what I am talking about. You could swap out smaller items like artwork, decorative trinkets or even light fixtures over the years, but the foundation of the design has a classic elegance that will never go out of style.
