Grey Kitchen Worktops

When designing a kitchen, we must remember how unique it is, with large areas of worktops on units, islands or peninsulas, which introduce character to the room. What colour should we choose? Grey worktops are a great choice because they are elegant. Their neutral tone also combines well with other colours if you do not want the kitchen to be monochrome.

Furthermore, if you do not wish to use grey worktops because it may be described as a cold colour, they are frequently combined with wooden units, giving the kitchen a warmer touch. Or if you prefer, you could choose warmer tones, such as beige or sandy grey.

WHY CHOOSE A GREY WORKTOP?

Not only does grey combine well with other colours and any type of surrounding, it also looks perfect if you have chosen appliances in stainless steel or have a polished concrete floor.

RELAXING ATMOSPHERE…

If what you are looking for is a serene atmosphere, a monochromatic space, combining different shades of grey, is a great option. Another elegant option and wise choice would be to combine grey with other neutral colours like white or beige.

… OR DYNAMIC

Would you prefer a more energetic atmosphere? One of the advantages of having grey kitchen worktops is that if you add a more striking colour, it will really catch your eye. If you add a few bright tones, you will make the overall look brighter.

SMALL SPACES

CREATING SPACE

If the kitchen is not very big and you want to create a greater sense of space, you should opt for pale grey kitchen worktops. However, you can use dark tones for large features like units, thus visually reducing their actual size. A mix of light and dark colours gives a greater sense of depth.

The Nordic kitchen style includes light, so in these areas the brightest shades should be used, reflecting rather than trapping the sun’s rays. So, here are some of the kitchen worktop models you should consider: Ventus with a beige tint, and Niebla in Silestone.

If you want to add an industrial touch to your kitchen, the worktop must be in grey, as well as other features like the beams or floor. The work surface can imitate the cement aesthetic, as is the case with Silestone’s Cemento Spa, which is a dark grey model that copies the finish, tone and impurities of this material, or Dekton Orix, which looks like used cement.

The classic or vintage designs that remind us of the past, feature stylish units and, naturally, the worktops must match.
