It’s no secret that grey flooring and neutral colour schemes have been popular in interior design for years now. The combination of greys, creams and whites allows for all sorts of décor schemes with a variety of colours from blue, to green to pink! That’s why they won’t go out of style for years to come. So, if you’re looking for a versatile yet classic flooring design that will help create the foundations for the rest of your interior design journey, then grey flooring might be the choice for you!
Is Grey Flooring a good idea?
Grey flooring is often considered to be the most versatile colour of flooring for several reasons.
It reflects light for a brighter room
Is your room a bit too dark? Well, with grey flooring you can create a lighter space because; grey comes in so many different hues and is very versatile with any room design or décor. With grey flooring, you can set the tone!
It doesn’t show dirt
Another benefit of grey flooring is that it’s much harder to see dust and dirt than with other neutral floorings like white and black. This makes it child- and pet-friendly flooring option, perfect for houses with high foot traffic.
It goes with any colour scheme
As mentioned before, grey is a neutral colour, so is perfect for neutral home décor when combined with light furniture. However, it can pair nicely with any colour on the colour wheel. So, if you want a vibrant home, grey could work well for you as well. This means you can choose to take your décor in a different direction later on without risking it clashing with your flooring.
