Do you want to take the plunge and use dark grey kitchen cabinets in your home?
While they look great when you view them online it can be difficult to actually figure out what kind of design actually works when you use dark grey cabinets. Do they go with darker or lighter worktops? Maybe you need light floors to create a bright and airy room? There is so much to think about when choosing a new design for your kitchen restyle.
Make Your Cabinets Stand Out
Have a look at any grey shade of cabinet and you will notice that the majority of them are shown with wooden worktops. Why is this? Well, the lighter colours that you find in pine and walnut contrast with the darker nature of the cabinets to create a unique look.
This makes them stand out really well so when you are looking for colours that go with grey then lighter shades of wooden worktops are often a solid choice and prove extremely popular with Kitchen Warehouse customers. If you want to make your dark grey kitchen cabinets a highlight of your room then solid wood worktops are a great method to achieve this. In fact look at our post which details the advantages of using solid wood in your kitchen to see just why it is such a great practical choice.
Keep The Rest of Your Room Light
What you should not do with a darker colour of cabinets is to make the whole room gloomy by adding further dark kitchen details such as black tables and chairs or use black door handles.
Black appliances are fine as they actually provide a nice contrast to your worktops but try and keep the rest of your room lighter than the cabinets to avoid creating a dull looking room. Aim for white painted walls, light coloured tiles and even add in some red as well because that usually works really well too.
Keep The Room Consistent
We often see kitchens that use a mixture of dark grey kitchen cabinets where one side of the room is lighter than the other. It really depends on your own individual tastes however the key is to maintain consistency.
A well planned and aesthetically beautiful kitchen is one that tends to be level across the board from a design point of view. While it is good to contrast colours and bring in different materials such as tiles, wooden worktops and metal handles to the room it is also a good idea to keep the colour scheme consistent throughout the room if you want to create a truly gorgeous kitchen.
Utilise The Cabinets Properly
To really get the best out of your dark grey cabinets you should choose wooden worktops. This creates a focus on light colours in the rest of the room and helps to keep a consistent design scheme throughout which mean your cabinets prove to be a solid investment. Many people opt for a lighter shade of grey for their cabinets and replacement doors as it can make the room seem more open and welcoming but darker colours have their place as well.
