Cabinets in a kitchen renovation are important as they set its design aesthetic and are key to its flawless functionality daily.

Design Aesthetic

First and foremost, deciding on what type of design you are looking for in the cabinets is a great start in the renovation process.

Colour will make the room appear larger or more cozy, door styles can be classic or more simplistic giving a room a modern edge and hardware always affects the design sense of cabinetry in a kitchen.

Kitchen Space and Cabinets

As a designer kitchen supplier, we know a great deal about how cabinets affect a kitchen space. One of the biggest parts of good kitchen design is about how you use the space, and it’s your kitchen cabinetry that dictates how much of it you have.

Everyone is different in how they use a kitchen and cabinet selection will vary as a result. For example, if you are a person who cooks a lot you may need extra prepping space, storage and cabinets. If you have a large family or entertain a lot you may want an extra large array of cabinets structured in an island.

When it comes to choosing your kitchen cabinets, too, there might be far more options than you first thought. Will it be freestanding, or wall-mounted? Do you have room for it to be recessed, or have you got the space to extend it all the way up to the ceiling?

Below, wall mounted Midnight Blue cabinets set a warm vibe to this kitchen. A small island with oven insert adds great function for a family.

Is A Grey Kitchen Right for You?

The popular trend for grey cabinets began in 2018 and contiunes today, so we will explore the colour to see if it’s right for you.

Get Away from Traditional

These days, a growing number of homeowners are shifting from traditional white or brown cabinetry into choosing grey color schemes in their kitchen because it is unique, neutral and adds a timeless sophistication to any home. If you are feeling like something new in the kitchen, grey may be just the thing you’re looking for.

Relaxing

Grey coloured kitchens form the backdrop for creating a sense of calm and tranquility in an otherwise busy space. The colour grey has an elegant and formal appeal which conforms well to any design scheme and because of its neutrality is easy to combine with other accents like paint colour, hardware, etc.

How to Pair Grey Cabinets with Accents

Understanding how to properly mix and match your kitchen cabinetry with other elements is important for a good design outcome. Here are some ideas:


o Incorporate natural materials such as granite or marble countertops, wood or stone flooring or add simple touches of potted plants and flowers. The beauty of nature is a perfect way to infuse life, and natural accent into your grey kitchen.

o Combine your grey kitchen cabinets with a unique backsplash to spice things up. A backsplash such as the subway tiles, modern chevron, or a dot-patterned tile will create a fabulous sleek and modern design concept.

o Enhance your kitchen with rich textures of curtains and window treatments; this can soften and give a welcoming feeling into your grey kitchen.

o To add some subtle excitement, break up the upper and lower kitchen cabinetry by combining your grey cabinets with another neutral color such as white for the upper cabinets. By doing so, it will give your kitchen a high-end look and a feeling of luxury.

Lots of Flexibility with Hardware Colours

Silver is usually the most common and traditional hardware used with grey kitchen cabinetry, this works especially well with cooler grey tones kitchen cabinets.

Another stylish touch for grey kitchen cabinets is to add leather handles which can make even the off-the-shelf units look high-end.

Blue-grey kitchen cabinets looks elegant especially paired with metallic tone hardware like nickel or silver.

Dark grey kitchen cabinets are simply stunning when paired with a black finish handles and drawer pulls.

Practicality

One of the reasons why you would want to use grey cabinets is because the colour does not show dirt as white does. White cabinets have dominated the home design landscape for quite some time; however, grey cabinets tend to be a bit more forgiving.

Wrap Up

Grey is a fantastic and practical choice for a modern beautiful kitchen that blends well with almost any accents and is very forgiving to wear and tear.

Why Dark Kitchen Cabinets May Be a Great Choice for Your Kitchen

Todays Designer Kitchens Small-midnight-blue-kitchen-2000x1200 Why Dark Kitchen Cabinets May Be a Great Choice for Your Kitchen

Dark kitchen cabinets may be a great choice for your kitchen as they can offer coziness, elegance, drama and so much more so let’s discuss.

Ambience

A dark cabinet will give a kitchen an immediate contemporary and cozy feel. Inky surfaces, like the ones in this elegant kitchen (main picture our newest Midnight Blue Collection), help enclose the space slightly to create an intimate feel.

Hides Imperfections

A dark surface can be more forgiving than a light one and won’t instantly show scuffs and stains. This makes dark cabinetry especially useful in busy households and will minimize cleaning time on a daily basis.

Contrasts Perfectly with White

If you’re going for a white countertop or white cabinetry for accents, contrasting it with a dark shade will have the most striking effect and makes the style of this kitchen pop as pictured below.

(Midnight Blue Cabinetry paired with Bermuda White Cabinetry).

Luxury Finishes Blend well with Dark Cabinets

Dark colors look beautiful with metallic finishes, such as brass and copper, as this space by Today’s Designer Kitchens below illustrates. The dark blue cabinets complement, rather than clash with the brass and the two surfaces are wonderfully balanced, giving this room a feeling of understated luxury.

For a dose of sophistication, you can’t beat dark cabinetry. Moody colors give a grown-up feel that can make a space feel seriously chic and unique.
