The modern standard – dark grey kitchens

Recent trends – dark grey kitchens

What are the recent interior trends? Dark shades – black, grey or even dark greens and blues. In combination with minimal styles, dark shades dominate the trend charts. The pictures show our designers’ masterpiece – a kitchen that combines the best of today’s standards, the most popular trends, all in a pleasing, fluid design dominated by sharp corners and straight lines. Minimalist design.

What makes this cuisine special?

There are many aspects to look at here – you have to choose where to start. Technique, design elements, ingenious solutions and overall design.

Kitchen furniture design is important, but we’ll come back to that. Another aspect that is not always thought about is kitchen appliances. As befits a high-end kitchen, the appliances are matched to the fronts and surfaces. A black Bosch hob and oven, whose black design will not stand out against the dark grey facades.

But the most special feature of the kitchen appliances is definitely the Elica cooker hood, which, as you can see, is installed in the ceiling structure above the kitchen island worktop. An elegant, one might even say invisible solution. The choice of sanitaryware is therefore also clear – Franke solutions always ensure the best quality and design to fit into any home interior.

The foundation of kitchen design is, of course, the facade and the worktop – the most visible part of the furniture. What’s interesting here is that to make the kitchen design more fluid and pleasant to look at, an ingenious solution has been applied: the built-in kitchen shelves can be hidden behind the pull-out doors. Blum fittings have been selected to ensure that opening the doors and drawers is always a pleasant experience.

Returning to the surfaces and facades, this kitchen furniture project demands the utmost attention to detail and the highest quality, provided by Dekton & Silestone by Consentino.

As you can see, the overall interior of the house is bright. White walls, light wood elements and lots of natural light, plus a spacious, open kitchen area. A great interior for a dark, modern and even very minimal kitchen furniture project, as the dark facades and surfaces create a strong contrast and give the interior a touch of character.

How can you create a kitchen in this style?

Our designers will definitely be able to find the best solution for your home, but the work will go more smoothly if you already have a rough idea of what you want and what you need. When looking for inspiration and the right solution for your home, you need to start with the basics. How big is the space for kitchen furniture? How big do you want your kitchen? Is a kitchen island desirable? Amount of natural light? These are questions that should definitely be answered at least roughly, because after all, the goal is to create the right kitchen for your home.

The most important thing to remember. Trends are one thing, but it’s also important to implement them successfully! For darker kitchen furniture, the most important thing is to find a balance between dark and light. If, for example, a dark grey or black colour is chosen for the kitchen facades and surfaces, then it is clear that special emphasis must be placed on lighting solutions!
