Grey kitchens are back and they’re amazing

*News klaxon*: Grey kitchens are back. Although, to be fair, they didn’t really go anywhere – they were perhaps overshadowed by blue and green kitchens for a few years. But we predict that they’re going to make a come back. And for those who think grey is boring; have I got the gallery to prove otherwise.

When I heard that grey kitchens were back, I’ll be honest – I had a little wince. However, I’ve found that actually grey kitchens of 2022 are much actually very interesting, varied, textured and exciting.

And greys really do come in so many shades – with tints of sage, nearly black – to a soft taupe or nearly white. They can also work with any look, for industrial, country, classic-contemporary to traditional.

Grey also goes with lots of different colours, whether that be bright tiles or statement wallpaper. They also work with a variety of materials, from the classic chrome pull handle, to an on-trend gnarled gold pull bar.
