Remodeling your dated kitchen with new cabinets is a great way to transform your kitchen look completely. There are wonderful design ideas out there to introduce new colors and styles into your home with beautiful and functional new cabinetry.
As you plan your new kitchen design, decisions about color come along early in the process. Many RTA kitchen cabinet manufacturers offer cabinets in various versions of white, grey, black, and many different wood stains –the possibilities are endless! One on-trend option is to mix the popular grey with beige to arrive at “greige” kitchen cabinets.
Because beige is a warm, neutral color that’s easy on the eyes, it complements contemporary home decor. Grey is also neutral but depending on whether it has cool or warm undertones, it can give your room a bright or dramatic look. Marrying beige with grey brings depth to beige while maintaining the color flexibility you gain with grey.
What does the greige color look like?
Beige + Grey = Greige. It is a little beige with a little bit grey. This neutral result is cooler than taupe but warmer than a plain grey. The mix of the two brings subtle elegance and contrast to white kitchen cabinets or adds a bright and airy feel to an all-oak kitchen. This mix of freshness and coziness is what makes greige cabinets popular today.
Are greige kitchen cabinets still in style?
Many homeowners choose greige cabinets because they complement brass, marble, warm wood, white quartz, white walls, and white cabinets. There are many versions of greige cabinets that will blend perfectly in your kitchen.
What wall color goes with greige cabinets?
Greige cabinets can provide an attractive contrast color to walls painted in white, antique white, blue, green, and grey-blue shades. The design trick is to choose a greige that has a stronger grey or beige base. A greige with a stronger gray influence works as a cool neutral. Or choose a stronger beige influence to arrive at a warm neutral. The versatility of greige cabinets makes them an easy backdrop for most wall paint, furnishings, and decor.
Do grey and greige go together?
Grey and greige go together exquisitely. However, when pairing a grey wall color with greige kitchen cabinets, you’ll want to watch the undertones in the grey; many homeowners find it challenging to design an all-grey kitchen.
Matching greige cabinets with a warmer grey for the walls can work well if the greige has more brown undertones. Grey paint colors with cool undertones work well with greige cabinets that feature a more dominant grey influence.
