  3. Introducing Grey in the Kitchen from Little Greene Paint Company

All of our kitchens are hand painted to your personal preference in the colour of your choice. One of the paint companies we use is a respectable company known as “Little Greene Paint Company”, who is an independent British paint manufacturer and one of our favourites. They are committed to the socially and environmentally responsible production of high quality paints and wallpapers. With history dating back from 1773 they use many materials from the past to make the high quality paints of today.

In 2004 Little Greene was one of the first UK paint manufactures to achieve the European environmental standards. They have always been committed to the ongoing and well-being of the world protection, and winning this award just showed the world the paint they produce is made of high quality standards. We are a very proud kitchen company that uses their paint on our handmade kitchens.

Grey colour schemes seem to be the colour trend nowadays, as they are neutral enough to complement many colours throughout the kitchen design and are making their way into the world of colour fashion. As we know grey is in high demand and a colour that can be easily updated with accessories and other kitchen décor ideas, so it will never go out of fashion. It brings sophistication to the space, adding lots of character and is a chic alternative to white.

With grey you can create a contrasting or contemporary colour scheme. Contrasting colours bring lots of energy to the room where contemporary colours bring a calm feel to the kitchen design. Warmer greys can create different feels, for example like a blue-based slate. If you follow the colour theory you can’t go wrong in creating the perfect palette in your traditional handmade kitchen.

Grey colours can go with practically anything from vibrant yellow to vivid red, and a range of grey hues can provide the guest with your personal taste and specific mood.
