Grey in the kitchen


Okay now this kitchen contains a few of my favorites.. lots of light, concrete sink and counters with white cabinets.  Another contender in my list of favorites.  What do you think?  I am curious does anyone have concrete counters in their house?  How do you like them?  I love how these are thin and simple with a small back splash.

Thank you to Betsy who had more information on the kitchen pictured...  this product is Fireslate which is a combination of cement, silica and other items... kinda cool.

Sorry we have soapstone counters but we have soapstone gray tiles on the floor and I love them! I also have a zinc dish like the one holding the flowers but never thought of putting a plant in it until now.

Enjoy your Sunday!

There isn't much that you 'tout' that I don't love. This kitchen so simple, but so beautiful!! I love love love the footed gray container with the green floral plant. But then of course, your muse, what doesn't look good with grey!!??

I second Mary Anne!

I find when using colors like grey and beige I avoid those particular words with clients, because they go, really? Instead its smoke, dove, mocha, cafe o lait. you get it. Happy Sunday!

Beautiful - we had concrete counters in our last house and loved them, and I'm crushing on that concrete sink. I am thinking about a concrete topped island in our house plan, as I don't think marble will make the short list on the budget side. We shall see.

Hi Christine! My girlfriend has that same look with a very light soapstone which is not subject to cracking like thin concrete. But now there are so many additives so that now concrete can be 'high-tech. Have a couple of friends with concrete counters. They like them but have had some cracking and that's not good.

Love this look, too.
xo, Chris

I have dark thin simple concrete counters in my kitchen and love them - they have acquired what I fondly think of as 'patina' (doting fool that I am): I was so tired of seeing double-depth shiny granite!
