If black is too dark for you or white is too light for you, then you are well-advised to go with the color grey for the modern kitchen. Grey combines both colors, making it the ideal compromise that you can’t go wrong with.

Grey kitchens are discreet but still stand out whether light or dark, all shades of grey can be combined well and do not offend with other colors. Light grey tones such as light grey or pearl grey also make the kitchen or room appear more spacious and well-suited for small kitchens. The higher the proportion of black, the more dominant the color tone. Dark anthracite grey, for example, has a reducing effect and is, therefore, more suitable for kitchens in large, light-flooded rooms.

The color grey looks very modern due to its neutrality and simplicity, but it does not emit a lively breath like a bright color. To prevent the kitchen from appearing too “lifeless,” the overall appearance should always be kept in mind during the planning process, and add other colors or materials if necessary. Or you can choose a grey with a red component, and thus a warm background color is created, such as taupe, grey-brown, grey-beige (grey), sand grey, or mouse grey.

modern grey kitchen cabinets combine with wood

Grey can be combined in different ways in the kitchen: the same tone, with wood for more coziness, or with neutral and bright colors.

Modern Grey kitchen cabinets in key points:

  • Neutral, reserved shade
  • Modern look
  • Diverse, due to numerous shades of grey
  • Cool or warm depending on the mixing ratio
  • Modern to the country house: timeless shade suitable for all styles
  • Good to combine with other colors, wood or stone


Grey is a very versatile color with many shades. Materials such as concrete and many types of stone also shine in plain grey. If you take a look at modern grey kitchens, you will notice that some shades of grey are ubiquitous in certain kitchen styles:

Matt grey for the modern country house style kitchen cabinets:

Country house kitchens are available in both light and dark shades of grey. Most of the modern grey cabinets fronts are matte so that the kitchen leaves a warm and cozy impression. Light grey is preferred for the Scandinavian country kitchen, while parquet floors underline the rural style. Tiles, laminate, or vinyl floors, especially those with a wood look, also fit.

Light grey or dove grey for the color combination kitchen cabinets:

Combined with colors such as yellow, red, or green, whether soft or bright, authentic nostalgic kitchens are created. Patterned colorful kitchen floors complete the look.

In industrial-style kitchens, you often come across fantastic, rather dark shades of grey such as slate grey, anthracite, or asphalt grey. But the rough look of concrete is also used to create a modern ambiance combined with stone floors or tiles in plain grey.


As a neutral color, grey naturally offers the best conditions to combine with other colors and materials. The basic principle for modern grey kitchens is: Anything that you like is allowed. Nevertheless, certain color combinations are wonderful.

Matching colors for modern grey kitchen cabinets

Dark grey harmonizes well with soft shades, whether rose, pastel blue, or light green. A white worktop also sets bright contrasts to give the grey kitchen freshness and make it appear less gloomy. The opposite is the case with light grey tones. Light grey kitchen fronts can be set off well with strong colors such as cherry red or teal. But grey kitchens with a black kitchen worktop also look contemporary. A trendy color combination is grey and yellow. For nice color contrast, either a dark shade of grey should be chosen or an intense shade of yellow for light grey.

Wooden elements give the modern grey kitchen a cozy touch. Whether it is a floor, shelves, or a wooden kitchen worktop. The natural material sets a warm contrast. For example, glass or stainless steel worktops can be selected for a remarkably modern and relaxed atmosphere. Grey industrial design kitchens are often combined with concrete surfaces or countertops. Kitchens in grey emit particular elegance in combination with surfaces and worktops made of natural stone such as marble, graniteor slate.


The kitchen planning in a modern country house style proves how cozy grey can be. The kitchen furniture is equipped with a framed kitchen front in matte graphite grey. Typical country house details such as glass fronts or open shelves support the country style, as is the case of many elements made of wood, whether it is the worktop, kitchen splashback, the floor, or accessories. The different shades of brown and the wall in light olive green ensure naturalness.

Modern design idea for a grey kitchen without handles: The tall cabinets in the umbra shade appear simple and recede into the background. In the center is a kitchen island consisting of four elements of different heights. The stone decor with extra high bodies give the kitchen an ultra modern look. Only the sink area and the dining table in light wood stand out in color. The wall is painted in the color aubergine, along with the dark kitchen.

Anyone who prefers elegant kitchen designs to lively ones can turn to black as a combination partner. A worktop in black, for example, is ideal for kitchens in light grey, as they emphasize the contours of the kitchen. In this retro-style country house kitchen, the tile in checked design also picks up on the color grey.

Colors and materials provide the ideal atmosphere for the grey kitchen: if light grey kitchen fronts, such as platinum grey, are combined with a wooden worktop, a friendly ambiance is created. Bright colors like pink or blue spice up the kitchen and give it a youthful and fresh look.

Grey, white, wood, and stone look into a harmonious whole in this kitchen idea: the grey kitchen unit with a white worktop is joined by a cooking island with a completely white marble look. A wooden worktop connects both components.
