Glass Sheet Backsplash and Industrial Stools with Waterfall Island

This contemporary kitchen embraces gray marble as the protagonist of the overall design. Its custom-cut design falls over the white cabinets, creating an incomplete waterfall effect, while the white ribbed island and walls generate movement and add extra dimension. Right across the main zone are the full height cabinets that lean contemporary and pose as a singular volume. The built-in black appliances add a striking contrast, while the dark wood planks coat the floors to build a sense of visual drama. Doing so makes the kitchen more approachable and also helps the gray-and-white combination pop out.

White Kitchen with Gray Backsplash and Countertops

If you want your design to look rich and luxurious, invest in a high-end material like marble. Here the gray marble slab backsplash pairs perfectly with white flat-front cabinets.

The black hood fixture, black low-back counter stools, and black-interior open cabinet island shelf constitute a contrast, adding a third dynamic to highlight the harmony between the white and gray.

White Shaker Cabinets And Gray Subway Tile Backsplash with White Countertops

This neutral color palette kitchen is given a traditional spin with white shaker cabinets and a duo of black caged pendants anchoring the island. In the background, the gray subway tile backsplash creates a focal point, while the white grout between the tiles highlights the patterns themselves for extra interest. Doing so also coordinates the backsplash with the white shaker joinery and countertops. Adding to that are the wood floor finish and wooden window beams that add warmth, letting the neutral color scheme pop out. And the white cool lights diffused by built-in spotlights bounce off around the room thanks to the gloss finish on the gray backdrop.

Does gray backsplash go with white cabinets?

Gray backsplash is one of the most popular shades that is paired with white cabinets. Whether it comes in dark, light, warm, or cooler shades, it always has something to contribute to the white cabinets. This might be a sense of edginess, elegance, sophistication, and lightness, depending on the shape, pattern, and shade of the backsplash. In short, a gray backsplash goes well with white cabinets; and this combination is used in all kitchen designs, be it contemporary, modern, traditional, transitional, or Scandinavian.

White Flat-Front Cabinets with Marble Slab Backsplash and Brass Fixtures

Marble is a winning material when the aim is to achieve elegance and opulence. It creates focal points visually while making strong visual statements, especially when it features pronounced veins. In this contemporary kitchen, we have a perfect example of it installed in an otherwise all-white setup. The white flat-front cabinets provide a blank canvas-like frame for the gray marble splash-back to shine, while the LED strip lighting emphasizes this opulent backdrop. Also, the brass lighting fixture and wooden bar stools just get brought in to pepper the gray-and-white look.

Scandinavian Kitchen with Hexagon Tile Backsplash And White Cabinets

This stunning kitchen unfolds itself in two layers: a single wall layout and a bench dining space. The former is defined by an eye-catching gray backsplash and white cabinets that reach the ceiling to provide ample storage. This hexagon tile backsplash, also known as honeycomb, introduces a biophilic pattern as a reference to nature. Likewise, the trio of oversized not-blossomed-yet petal-like lighting fixtures adds another layer of natural reference, paired with wooden benches, a nod to Nordic aesthetics and its inclusivity regarding nature. This approach is finally honored with a black fur-like fabric that adds a soft touch.

How do you warm a white and gray kitchen?

Timber floating shelves, LED strip lighting that radiates white warm lights, kitchen plants, brass hardware, and wood accents are some of the ways to warm a white and gray kitchen. But when choosing a warm element, first, consider the overall design aesthetic. For example, if you have a country or a farmhouse kitchen, feel free to use ceiling beams, salvaged wood, wood trim for the range hood, and a ceiling-mounted rack to exhibit your gorgeous copper cookware. As for modern and contemporary kitchens, you can use a wood panel backsplash, floating shelves, brass wall sconces, and gold hardware. In short, just focus on integrating warm shades and play with the different materials that come with texture such as red-brown brick tiles with which you can create feature walls.

Standing between something modern and classic, this transitional kitchen has a bit of all. The shaker cabinets give the kitchen a classical spin challenged by the modern kit-kat mosaic tile backsplash.

Modern Country with Gray Ceramic Backsplash And White Cabinets

Color combinations should complement finishes especially when your design is supposed to have a more rustic edge like country kitchen designs require. This one-we have here-nestled under the gabled ceiling proposes a modern country look, carrying rustic influences with a rustic floor finish, bespoke bar stools, and bell-like oxidized metal pendant. The white cabinets and gray subway tile backsplash create a modern setup without making a total counterpoint to the rustic vibes of the kitchen. In addition to the varying design styles, the scalloped butler sink invites a farmhouse flair, while the whitewashed ceiling beams and the ceiling provide a clean look.

White Kitchen with Gray Backsplash and Countertops

If you want to keep things simple and classic, subway tiles are the route to go- as this traditional kitchen demonstrates. Here the gray subway tile stove splash-back orchestrates a timeless look with white shaker cabinets, and dark gray countertops and built-in appliances bring a modern and sleek edge to the kitchen. Yet what makes this traditional kitchen break away from the typical kitchen looks is the size of the upper wall units. They neither adjoin to the range hood nor go up to the ceiling, looking suspended and being treated as a wall accessory. This way, the cream-painted walls get more chance to emanate warmth, adding a sense of coziness and intimacy to the interiors.

Nestled under the coffered ceiling, this craftsman kitchen in Ottawa has a large workspace that is made feel wider with white cabinets, white countertops, and the lack of upper cabinetry in favor of a counter-to-ceiling backsplash. These gray subway tiles laid in a running-bond pattern traverse the kitchen walls, serving as a wraparound backsplash without overwhelming the kitchen.

The same goes for gray glass backsplashes available in glass sheets and tiles. And you can integrate them into white kitchens confidently, adding a subtle hint of color that comes with a nice sheen. In case you prefer a matte finish, such glass finishes are also available.

White Cabinets and Diamon Tile Backsplash with Ornate Details

Traditional kitchens love elaborate details, millwork, and curves protruding outwards, and this one is no exception. Enveloped by white shaker cabinets topped by white countertops, this traditional kitchen’s highlight point is the curvy corbels of the range hood fixture that lean outwards. And right below them, a gray marble diamond pattern backsplash peeks out, making a luxury statement. The black grout used to highlight these diamond patterns adds a modern edge, which also brings the tiles into dialogue with the black cabinet hardware. And lastly, the interior cabinet lighting used inside the display cabinets provides accent lighting to draw attention to certain points in the kitchen.

Are white kitchens timeless?

White kitchens are popular and indispensable for a good reason. First, they amplify the available space, encouraging the kitchen to feel taller, wider, and lighter. In other words, if you have a small kitchen or a kitchen that doesn’t receive enough sunlight, creating a white kitchen would solve most of the problems. Thirdly, you can always feel the need to upgrade your kitchen. And in white kitchens, even if you make a small change such as replacing counter stools, cabinet hardware, and lighting fixtures, it, in most cases, is enough to make your kitchen feel totally anew. Considering all these functional and aesthetic benefits, it wouldn’t feel wrong at all to state that white kitchens are timeless and are not likely to go out of style anytime soon.

Dark Gray Chevron Tile Backsplash with White Cabinets and Glass Pendants

Marble Chevron Tile Backsplash with White Cabinets and Countertops

Marble in traditional kitchens is generally used as tiles. Here, for instance, it comes in small chevron tiles to create a texture-rich background for the white cabinets and white countertops. Adding to it is the Turkish runner with the discolored look and a blue azure statement island that also adds a dash of color.

Should the backsplash be lighter or darker than the cabinets?

Choosing darker cabinets is one of the best ways to anchor a lighter backsplash. Especially if your kitchen doesn’t receive enough sunlight, it might be wiser to keep the working area (which includes countertops and backsplash) lighter. This way, you can also lessen the need for artificial light during the day.

But if you have a vast kitchen that is filtered with natural lights throughout the day, sure, you can also choose a darker backsplash and get white cabinets, for instance, to constitute a striking contrast. For instance, contemporary and some Scandinavian kitchens use this combination frequently to make visual statements without adding extra elements.
