Many shades of grey

Grey has always been a popular colour for kitchens. It's versatile, timeless and wonderfully chic. As the story goes, there are many shades of grey and you can create a different look and style depending on the grey tone you choose. For a light and spacious feel, why not choose a sleek gloss like Stevia light grey gloss slab, or a mid grey shaker style with Alpinia grey painted wood effect shaker. Or go dark and broody with our Garcinia anthracite gloss with integrated handles - giving the option of an ultra-modern style or a dramatic feel.

Cool and trendy
