Dream Scheme: Timeless Grey Kitchen

Simple yet stylish, this grey colour scheme is your recipe for a modern kitchen.


So, you’re thinking about giving your kitchen an overhaul. Whether you’re planning a complete refit or a quick makeover, colour will surely come into consideration. Grey has so many qualities; it’s versatile, it can be warm, it hides a multitude of sins (from marks to wall imperfections) – and of course, it’s right on trend. Just the thing for your new kitchen then.

This scheme combines Silent Steel with warm mid-tone shade Maraschino Mocha 4 for a softer edge that will give your kitchen a welcoming feel. We suggest pairing these with a hint of Blissful Blue as a third, smaller pop of colour but you can find more colour scheme ideas on our Visualizer app.

Paint your walls, cupboards and woodwork for an easy and hassle-free update, or if you’re looking to totally revamp the space, try these surfaces for the finishing touches:



For a contemporary look, check out Quick Step’s Canyon Oak Grey With Saw Cuts flooring, which is a steal at £28.99 per m sq. Part of the company’s new premium Livyn range nobody will ever guess it’s (whisper it) vinyl.


Bring a tactile quality to counter tops with timber – we love B&Q’s Mississippi Pine Suare Edge kitchen worktop (£122), which gets the balance between rustic and industrial just right.


A sociable kitchen means seating, so incorporate a breakfast bar or high counter. Even the smallest of ledges is enough for a friend to perch on while you cook. Try French Connection’s Roger Large Bar Stool (£79 each), which will tie into this colour scheme and modern feel beautifully.

There you have it! A kitchen to make the heart of your home.
