The transition to all-gray kitchens began when silver gray became an accent color.
Many high-end kitchens have been updated with silver gray — the color of stainless steel appliances. Now the gray is being carried through to tile, marble and other kitchen elements. Here a wall of silver gray subway tiles, with thick white grout lines, becomes an accent wall for an otherwise classic white kitchen. That silver gray tile runs the length of the range niche and on each side of it as well. It’s like an updated brick wall!
A Carrara marble counter on the island stands in contrast to the darker counters on the perimeter. At its heart though, this classic English kitchen retains its Victorian roots: glass-door soffit cabinets, bin pulls, specialty drawers, and a range niche with fireplace hood. The white fireclay farm sink takes the only modern turn with Dornbracht profi faucets, including a high arc sprayer in front of the windows. There’s an armoire treatment for the refrigerator/freezer although they don’t quite qualify as refrigeration in disguise. Cargo pendant lights are another much prized feature for kitchens in this classic style which some describe as the “one true kitchen.”
