50 Shades of Grey – Part 2

Not Just A Colour for modern kitchens
In our last post we looked at how various shades of grey have permeated their way into cutting edge chic when it comes to modern kitchens, in particular – handleless kitchens. The colour grey has also become highly sought after with customers who are looking for a more traditional kitchen look, especially kitchens that have an in-frame door.
The above kitchen is Petworth in French Grey, which is a painted in-frame kitchen.

In our range of painted in-frame and shaker door kitchens, we offer both a ‘standard’ colour palette of twenty stunning Farrow and Ball and Fired Earth colours as well as a ‘Your Way’ option of choosing any colour. With this vast and varied range of options, you would think that there would be quite a spectrum of chosen colours, but the predominant choice is grey, albeit in slighlty varying shades.

The above image of Petworth French Grey is the perfect example of the fresh look this lighter grey can bestow on a room. Mid tone greys offer the option to mix colours or woodgrains to avoid making the kitchen too heavy. A high visual impact can be achieved by contrasting the mid-tone grey with a white or off-white quartz which cuts the grey and lifts the overall asthetic.
The above kitchen is Broadoak Painted Shaker Linen and Oak.

At the darker end of the spectrum are the bolder grey. Masterful and imposing and to be used sparingly in contrast with a light grey tone or white. Colours such as Charcoal or Slate are grandiose and create powerful looks within the kitchen.
The above kitchen is a 1909 painted in frame kitchen in Charcoal and partridge grey
