Bright colours often create a pleasant atmosphere in the kitchen, making the environment feel light, bright and spacious. However, neutral colours are just as important! 

Neutral tones set the base for the kitchen design and can be brightened with colourful and bright accents, which add a unique and personal touch to the space.

This is why, today on homify, we've put together 15 different kitchens with neutral colour palettes. However, each has its own unique style and colourful accents. 

You'll see just how much potential a neutral kitchen has and you'll be inspired by the different styles!

1. White and black lines

This is a very trendy design that unites modern furniture and stunning tiles, creating a detailed look and feel.

2. Grey, metallic and opaque

This kitchen is the perfect example of how to add warmth to a kitchen that is predominantly grey.

3. White with shades of grey

The presence of neutral tones in the kitchen creates visual calm. Grey can be combined with warm colours and accessories so that the design doesn't become too monotonous. This is simply stunning!

4. Clear tones create a pleasant atmosphere

Neutral colours are always beautiful and they never go out of fashion. If your kitchen has a very clear design or a distinct style, neutral tones can create sustainability. 

5. Grey, white and pastel turquoise details

The colour green is very fashionable and can be easily combined with neutral tones and a touch of white. Grey and white make for an interesting combination. The marble effect is simply stunning!

6. White and grey details with copper accents

Black can be the star of your kitchen, but it shouldn't overwhelm the space. It is simply majestic when used subtly and effectively.
