Grey colour trends for every type of flooring

The fashion for using grey tones in interior design remains firmly in place. The beauty of grey is both in the variety of tones it offers and its ability to mix effortlessly with other colours to create a sophisticated design palette.

To inspire you to inject some grey into your flooring we’ve taken a look at just a handful of grey floor looks that can be created across the different flooring types you’ll find in our Surrey flooring showroom.

Engineered Wood Floors

The colouring techniques used in real wood flooring have advanced so much in recent years, enabling a wide array of stunning wood tones which combine all the wood floor character with contemporary colour finishes. Grey has been at the forefront of this move into an increased wood floor colour spectrum.

Our wood flooring studio offers a variety of greys from almost white, for a subtle and clean backdrop to bolder dark tones which carry the rich depth of oak in grey infused boards.

Luxury Vinyl Floors

Vinyl has always been ahead of the game in being able to offer an endless array of colour and design options without compromising on quality or style.  Vincent Flooring’s Amtico and Karndean design studio is an ideal starting point to discover the myriad of grey vinyl flooring options in a variety of wood, stone or abstract finishes.

Whether you are looking to mimic authentic grey wood flooring, urban stone styling or create your own unique grey inspired patterns, the possibilities are endless with our high quality, long lasting vinyl floors.

Carpets and Runners

Natural carpet tones remain a popular choice, and following the trend for grey there are plenty of neutral grey toned carpets to choose from which will complement pastel or bold colour schemes perfectly.

Stripes have also embraced grey, whether you are injecting them into your stairs and runners or in an entire room. The addition of grey combined with complementary colours will add a real statement of sophistication to your carpets.

The perfect way to add a finishing touch to any room design, and perhaps the easiest and quickest way to add an instant splash of modern grey, is with the addition of a stylish rug. Choose a grey rug that has a border, pattern or stripe which matches colours in your soft furnishings or walls, or lay over an existing grey floor in a contrasting tone to create a layered grey palette.

Our rug showroom is full of design ideas, and we even offer a bespoke rug service to create a totally unique combination of colours that will be the perfect addition in your room.
