Grey kitchens have surely made it to the design trends of 2021. This shade in itself is so versatile that it can make every kitchen design theme and colour palette look elite. Let us take you through some of our favourite contemporary grey kitchen design ideas;

If an out-of-space, ‘Jetsons’ design approach has always excited you, this grey kitchen design is just the one you could draw inspiration from. While the architecture of the table and cabinets are unlike that of any common kitchen space, the colour combination of grey white and light wood simply enhance its bright mood. Adding some style and fun to it through bar stools that match the futuristic design vibes is like a cherry on top.

One of the most elite combinations for any space design is matte grey, brass architectural hardware fittings and marble. Wouldn’t you agree?

While the kitchen wall is like an embossed grey section, mirror shelves and brass handles add some spark to it subtly. This open kitchen layout that includes the dining table is a great choice for anyone who likes to live in not-so-crowded homes. The marble table top and maroon velvet chairs continue the mysteriously chic vibes of this kitchen design.

Dusty grey cabinets, white brick walls and light wood countertop, simply make this kitchen design a cute and delightful space for anyone who likes to cook. The little details like the matte black pendant lamps, earthy ceramics and flowers, subtly make this kitchen design idea refreshing and homely. Adding a little dining set in white, with a rug underneath is a good way to utilise the space in the middle of the kitchen.

A play of two tones and some metal is the simplest classic way of acing any space design. In this case, while the grey covers all the cabinets, the overall background is bathed in snow white. Since most appliances come in steel, adding bar stools that match these tones simply add a refined touch to this minimal modular kitchen design.

Long gone are the days when a kitchen was to be a confined space for cooking. With ‘live at home’ being the new mantra for 2021, having an open kitchen design that is spacious enough to host a family that loves to cook together, as well as friends who enjoy a good cocktail night, is more of a necessity. While the overall hue used here is grey, we can’t help but admire how the shiny metal accents illuminate this kitchen design. Breathing some life into this elite kitchen design, are the house plants, as well the mini jungle outdoor.

If industrial interior design is your favourite theme, we believe you’re already a fan of hues of grey. While the wall here adds some brightness to this kitchen design, along with the white chairs, the dusty greys bring out the details in it all. Pendant spotlights, geometric wall art and light wood cabinets just enhance this monochromatic space.

The beauty of the colour grey is that you could design the entire kitchen using the same one hue and yet never have a space too dark or too bright. While the ceiling and the floor use white as their primary colour, everything else in this modular kitchen design is in a soothing shade of grey, making every little thing kept on the counters, pop.

If an all-grey kitchen is not what you wish to go for but still want to keep a piece of it, this kitchen design is a unique one to take cues from. While different sections of this space use different materials and colours, they come together to give you a sleek contemporary modular kitchen design. The best part about this design approach is how you can go for different material and colour combinations as per your preferences.

A unique open kitchen design corner that houses a stove in the centre, surrounded by grey cabinets on two sides, makes this contemporary kitchen design so very appealing. While the walls around it replicate the grey clouds, dark wood flooring adds just the amount of contrast this kitchen layout needs.
