It’s nigh-on impossible to have avoided the reign of the dark grey kitchen. The nation’s love affair with shades of grey in home decor touched every corner of the home from bedrooms and dining rooms (Shingle and Charcoal being the two most popular paint colours to use here) to, you guessed it, kitchens.
Out of the eight kitchen colours we’ve seen applied most in our kitchens, three are variations of grey. Pale and pretty Shingle slips in at number seven, our second-to-darkest grey Smoke sits at the third highest spot, and by leaps and bounds, our most popular paint colour of all for a kitchen is our deepest grey of the bunch – Charcoal.
Proof that dark grey kitchens aren’t all about appearing ‘on trend’, Charcoal’s unrivalled number one position provides reassurance that it’s a colour suiting contemporary spaces as much as classic ones, big kitchens and little ones, and both bold and pared-back interiors.
