Black and white kitchens have been around forever and it is a color scheme that works with almost any style and theme. But today, we shift our focus to kitchens clad in gray and black that move away from the mundane and feel like a breath of fresh air. It is not about filling your kitchen completely with black, but about using it cleverly to make a visual difference.
New company Plykea launched a series of birch ply doors and worktops that can be attached to IKEA‘s ‘Metod‘ kitchen cupboards. Digital product designer Tim Diacon wanted a speedy way in which to create a handsome kitchen on a finite budget. Already possessing an IKEA kitchen, Tim searched for a company that could make a set of birch ply fronts. Unsuccessful in his quest, Tim turned to his friend Adam Vergette for help—Adam is a furniture designer and a one-time production worker with Vitsœ. The two men hatched a plan to create an online service that would provide reasonably priced bespoke plywood doors, drawer fronts, worktops and cover panels for IKEA kitchen cabinets: and so Plykea was born.
Despite its reputation as a color that lends itself favorably to polished, contemporary interiors, gray works equally well with a variety of other styles. All you need to do is choose the right shade and combine it with different materials and textures to get the desired look. Darker tones of charcoal gray along with white fit into industrial kitchens when combined with exposed brick walls and metallic finishes. Wood takes over as the third element in rustic and farmhouse kitchens while stone and Corian complete modern kitchens.
