Grey tiles: the perfect neutral for your home
Whether they’re used on floors or on walls, grey tiles can create a stunning, timeless and super-chic look in your home.
Suitable for sophisticated bathrooms, elegant kitchens and understated living rooms, conservatories, bedrooms and hallways, the versatility of neutral grey tiles means that they will sit harmoniously alongside a variety of different interior décor styles.
Grey tiles – beyond a passing trend
Grey, in all of its incarnations, has dominated the interior design world for some time now, and its appeal shows no signs of going away. Grey tiles, for both floors and walls, deliver a restful and balanced feel wherever they’re used and can be combined with many different colours to beautiful effect.
Using grey tiles with colour
Stylish grey tiles are enhanced by a broad selection of accent colours; for example, deep and stormy shades of slate grey tiles will look fresh and modern when paired with crisp white; soft dove grey works as a perfect counterbalance to pretty pastel shades, preventing them from becoming too sugary and saccharine; and vivid, bolder hues – such as crimson, mustard, cobalt or lime green – will off-set mid-grey tiles to make them pop, for a more industrial feel.
Grey tiles for bathroom floors and walls
Whether you opt for a modern or traditional bathroom scheme, grey tiles are guaranteed to look smart and fresh alongside pure white bathroom suites. You may opt to add in a touch of natural timber or stone for organic character, or alternatively raw concrete or elements of on trend copper and rose gold to heighten the effect.
Grey tiles for smart kitchens
Brilliant white high gloss kitchens are on trend at the moment, and what could look better beside pure white units than cool and sophisticated grey tiles? The other trend of the moment is for Scandinavian-style painted kitchens and these are also complemented by the pared back neutrality of pale grey tiles.
Achieving different styles with grey tiles
We have seen porcelain wood-effect grey tiles used on the floors of living rooms and foyers for a light and timeless look; large format grey tiles are minimal and modern and ideal for use in open plan spaces; and alternating plain white and grey tiles in a chequerboard fashion will bring Victorian-inspired style to your hallway.
