Is Grey the new colour of choice for Kitchens?

Are you looking to modernise your tired old kitchen? If you are, you’ve probably noticed that grey is the new “it” colour for kitchens. With designer kitchens worldwide adopting the grey look, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing many customers looking to create grey kitchens in Perth as well.

While grey kitchens are trending, white remains the most popular colour choice. According to Houzz’s 2018 Kitchen Trends Study, 59% of homeowners who renovated their kitchens last year chose white for cabinetry and walls, 37% chose white for their splashbacks, and 32% chose white for their benchtops.

It may be some time before white is toppled from being the most popular choice, but grey is strong competition. Houzz reports that grey appears on 22% of benchtops, 16% of walls, 15% of splashbacks and 9% of cabinetry.

If you’d like to adopt the grey look, we have the perfect kitchen products at Ross’s Discount Home Centre. Here are ten products from our range of benchtops and splashback tiles that will allow you to create the grey kitchen of your dreams.
