We’re slowly working through replacing the flooring in our home and so far have tackled our third and fourth bedrooms with a stylish engineered wood. But who would have thought that grey wood flooring is one of the most popular colours on the market. Whichever guise, be it grey laminate, solid oak, engineered wood or luxury vinyl tiles, it’s taking over modern interiors. Perhaps due to the effortless blend with decor and furnishings, the practicality of the colouring or simply the fresh, clean feel it brings to a room. Regardless of the reason, grey wood flooring is the runaway favourite. If you’re considering it for your home, these handy tips will help guide your choice.
Perfect for living rooms, dining areas, bedrooms and conservatories – there’s even a range suitable for kitchens and bathrooms. Grey wood flooring is one of the most versatile flooring ranges on the market and can both compliment subtle décor or enhance bold furnishings.
Grey Laminate Flooring: Tiled Effect
When it comes to laminate flooring products have come a long way. The hyper-realistic decorative layer imitates luxury flooring designs to an impeccable standard. From tiled effect to traditional wood planks – there’s a whole host of luxury options to choose from at affordable prices.
As a great example, this grey tile effect laminate captures the detail and class of marble flooring at a fraction of the price.
Grey tiled laminate is perfect for contemporary styling too. This orange sofa pops beautifully in contrast to the grey tile effect flooring. The dark tones accentuate the orange to create a stunning feature piece.
TIP: When it comes to choosing which grey tile effect to go for, you may want to consider the size of the room. Larger tiles perform better in open spaces and are much more efficient for covering larger surface areas as less boards are needed.
Grey Laminate Flooring: Wood Effect
With the Scandi trend showing no signs of abating any time soon, light grey wood flooring blends effortlessly with surrounds to create a stunning minimalist look. Whilst still adding character through the authentic wood knots and grains, light grey wood is the perfect complement to natural décor. It also cleverly reflects light across the surface of the floor adding brightness.
Whether tiles or wood effect, laminate is the perfect range for trend setters and homeowners that area cost-conscious. The impressive lifespan means it will last an average of 15-25 years. For those who like to change up interiors more often, it’s cost-effective to replace. Win win!
TIP: The easy click lock system means laminate is perfect for a self-installation. Anyone with basic DIY skills can give it go, saving a small fortune on fitting costs.
Grey Luxury Vinyl Tiles
The word vinyl used to make me shudder, remember horrors from the 70’s and 80’s? Now though it’s more about robust, durable, elegant style. Luxury vinyl tiles are manufactured with only the highest quality vinyl and finished with a superior wear layer. Advances in modern technology has allowed 3D printing to deliver impeccable realism and depth to the designs. Often difficult to tell apart from the real thing, LVT not only look amazing but is practical too. Capable of withstanding the effects of moisture and heat, it is the perfect solution for bathrooms and kitchens and available in both wood or tile options. I’ve seen so many great examples of this lately and we have vinyl in our bathroom which looks so elegant.
Grey Solid & Engineered Wood Flooring
Solid and engineered wood flooring is renowned for the incredible quality, longevity and stunning aesthetics. The addition of modern grey colouring only adds to the appeal.
This dining area features slightly wider solid grey wood boards. The open space showcases detail in the planks, whilst the minimal choice of décor draws focus to the floor.
TIP: To really exaggerate the knots and grains go for wood flooring with a brushed and oiled finish and a wider plank width. The oil enhances the natural features whilst a wider board provides sufficient space to showcase the detail.
As with all flooring ranges, when it comes to choosing which design to go for, everyone has a personal preference. However, knowing which is most practical for your needs will help with the overall performance. This handy chart compares flooring ranges based on room suitability:
