Grey kitchen design ideas for your home for savvy families

Design your kitchen with some sophisticated grey hues

The kitchen is one of the essential spaces of every Indian household. It is not just a place where we cook but a place that resonates with our culture, traditions and values. We Indians love our food and take our culinary activities very seriously, so our kitchen needs to be functional, user-centric and beautiful. It should blend our traditional design sensibilities with modern trends. 

So, here we bring to you some grey kitchen design ideas that will add an edge to your interiors and elevate the look and functionality of your kitchen by several notches. Read along to know about some uber-cool grey kitchen colour combinations along with some trendy and space-saving kitchen units for a compact, smart and functional kitchen.

A Classic Kitchen Designed With Multiple Shades Of Grey

Grey brings a comforting and sophisticated vibe to your kitchen, so here we bring you a modern kitchen with multiple shades of grey. The overhead cabinets with metal handles are designed with lighter grey shades, while the base cabinets are designed with darker shades of the colour. The glass shutter cabinets help you display your spice bottles and expensive crockery in an organised manner. In contrast, the base cabinets have some excellent space-saving units like oil pullouts, multiple drawers with organisers, a built-in dustbin unit under the sink and an inbuilt cutlery tray inside the drawers that helps in better organisation. We have also added a floating shelf and some hooks for an additional display area. We have used grey tiles for the backsplash and a mosaic quartz countertop to add to the drama. This design is lighter to the eye and makes your kitchen look neat and charming.

A Compact Kitchen With Grey Kitchen Tiles For The Backsplash

This kitchen is designed in a light colour scheme for an illusion of a bigger space, making it apt for small and compact apartments. To add a subtle grey hue to the entire kitchen design, we have used grey tiles for the backsplash. This design lends a sleek look to your kitchen without compromising on the simple colour scheme. We have added smart space-saving units like oil pullouts, spice pullouts and tandem drawers to keep your kitchen organised and clutter-free. You can use the hooks on the backsplash to hang your spoons and ladles. The inbuilt hob and chimney gives your kitchen a sleek look and helps keep your kitchen sparkling clean.

Don’t Shy Away From Dark Gray Colour For Your Kitchen

Don’t shy away from some dark grey colour if you want to add a bold statement to your kitchen. This colour adds definition to your kitchen and elevates the aesthetics of the space. The aluminium base cabinets are easy to maintain and are water-resistant. We have used a black granite countertop to match the dark grey base cabinets, while the white overhead cabinets and tiled backsplash cut the monotony of bold colours. The intelligent use of space to place your appliances like a microwave oven and a fridge elevates the functionality of the space. At the same time, the inbuilt hob and multiple storage units give you ample space for free movement inside the kitchen.
