Grey is a perfect color: timeless, classic and with lots of shades, it can fit any room and suit any décor style. You can find proper grey floors for modern, minimalist, rustic and other décor styles, and the good news is scratches and spots won’t strike the eye on grey like it would be with polished black floors, for example. Grey floors won’t make a statement but will delicately highlight the décor and make the space look airy and light. What types of grey cover can you choose? Basically, there are tiles, wood, concrete and stone, so you can easily find what you like or even mix them all in one open-plan space.
Grey Wood Floors
Wood is out favorite material to choose, I mean plywood, laminate and other types of wooden floors. Wood makes any space cozier and comfier but you should carefully choose the finish to make your floors more long-lasting because wood is the most fragile cover for floors, especially if you have kids and pets. There are lots of shades of grey wood you can choose but I totally love not plainly wooden grey floors but whitewashed plank ones, they look perfect for shabby chic and vintage spaces.

Grey Tile Floors
Tiles are usually chosen for bathrooms, mudrooms and kitchens because they are very durable and practical: you can easily wash and clean them and you shouldn’t be afraid of scratches or spots of any kind – they will be easily washed off. The tiles can be of a cool shape – arabesque, hexagon, scallop or any other you like, or just be clad in various patterns, for example, in herringbone one.

If you still want the wood warmth but don’t want to sacrifice functionality, choose wood-look porcelain tiles. They are practical like tiles and have a cozy wooden look, it’s so realistic that nobody would guess that it’s not wood.

Grey Concrete Floors
Concrete is the most durable option ever, they look very modern, laconic and will last forever. Grey concrete floors are perfect for any room, from bathrooms to living rooms, for modern, minimalist, Scandinavian and other styles. If you think that it’s boring, you are wrong as concrete can also have various shades and can be polished or finished in various ways.

Grey Stone Floors
Stone is another most durable and practical material to use for floors, it is ideal for any functional space: an entryway, a bathroom, a kitchen or a dining area, and it’s especially actual if you have pets and kids. Such a floor is like concrete but you’ll also have a chic natural touch; the most used stone for floors is limestone, it looks awesome and naturally grey.

Grey Carpet Floors
Carpets add warmth and turn any place. They work best in bedrooms but you can use them in living rooms, home offices and sunrooms too. Although we won’t recommend them for kitchens and bathrooms.
