Going grey? Don’t mind if you do! Grey is a classic kitchen colour that shows no signs of waning. Choose matte, gloss or mix in another hue to shake things up. Be sure to pay attention to the backsplash, the lighting and the hardware. Here’s some inspiration to get you started.
A fetching sheen pervades this hardworking space – count up all of those appliances! – that’s heavy on storage, too!

Lap of Luxury
Ultra-long linear hardware brings the bling to this urban kitchen. This design would work beautifully in a professional couple’s lavish condo. Can you imagine children running around this space? (Neither can we.)
Subdued grey cabinetry is a winner in this traditional set-up that sports an edgy island. Yes, mixing in a different colour (in this case, dark wood) is totally allowed – it adds a bit of personality.
Pop in a couple of black factory pendants lights, coordinating black stools and countertops against grey cabinetry and you’re on your way to a timeless combo. Break up the monotony of the cabinetry with glass, like in the funky design seen here.
White uppers and grey lowers are an alluring mix – dark cabinets ground the kitchen, providing contrast to the slick countertops. Leaning artwork above is a clever solution for that awkward spot close to the ceiling we’re always being told to conceal with cabinets. We salute the defiance!
Be still my beating heart! This lovely grey lady features shaker cabinets, an apron sink and a smattering of stylish hexagon tiles – dark grout really makes the pattern pop! And those faceted farmhouse lights are a divine change from conventional lanterns.
With the right pieces, less is more. Here, an oversized island topped with Caesarstone’s Noble Grey looks luxurious in a farmhouse setting. Playful pendants and an abundance of shiplap pull the look together.
Artist in Residence
An architect? A potter? While you’re busy guessing who lives in these swanky quarters, let’s enjoy the overload of grey. From Caesarstone’s Rugged Concrete surfaces to the grey sidling up the walls, we are loving every minute of this painterly space.
A Melange of Materials
Sure, the designer of this kitchen could have gone all white on the island, but bringing in grey shakes up the digs. An integrated cabinet for cookbooks, C-cup hardware and a flashy countertop are a knockout.
We love that the steel grid on the stools are emphasized thanks to the dark backdrop – grey for the win! Ditto the floating wood shelves against a grey-and-white backsplash.
Fresh and Clean
Quick, get your design board together for the kitchen of your dreams with this combo: shaker cabinets, sleek countertops and hexagon tiles.
What was that you said about grey feeling sombre? In this snazzy kitchen, lots of white balances the grey, lending a lighthearted appeal. Matching cushy stools are a cute choice, wooden legs add warmth.
Miles of Tiles
A spacious kitchen gets the grey treatment with swoon-worthy results. The mix adds personality, so get creative by layering in black, wood, marble and ceramics – miles of subway tile feels tres bistro.
An architectural kitchen is topped with Caesarstone’s Georgian Bluffs countertops in white to highlight the sleek banks of grey. A horizontal window offers views for miles. No grey days here!
A Sleek Approach
It’s not for everyone, but if high-gloss gets you giddy then choosing grey is a much warmer choice than white. Neatniks, alert! An integrated pot rail keeps everything in its place.
