When we think about choosing the perfect colour cabinets for our worktops, we usually imagine some shade of brown, perhaps white, or even black. Grey is not often at the top of our lists – but it should be! There are various shades of grey and it really is one of the most versatile colours of all!
Grey worktops look fantastic when paired with grey cabinets. Just imagine dark grey cabinets with light grey stone resting on top. The opposite is also true, you can pair dark grey worktops with light grey cabinets. You can even look for grey worktops that are the same shade as your cabinets if you like. Add some accents to the design by fitting darker door and drawer handles.
Another decision you will need to make is whether you would like a solid colour or a stone with stylish veining. This really comes down to personal preference and the look you are trying to create. If you have a kitchen island, you can mix it up a little by using darker worktops on your main cabinets and lighter stone on your island or vice versa. The best thing about your kitchen island is that you don’t need to make it match the rest of your kitchen.In other words, you can use contrasting colours for your cabinets as well as the worktops. So, before settling on any colours, play around a bit with a few combinations. You may like to check out some photos of designs for inspiration before placing your order.
