A symphony of good-looking greys
The popularity of grey is showing no signs of slowing down, probably because it’s such a versatile colour, and not least because of its capacity to add style and sophistication to any room. With such a vast range of greys to choose from, it is definitely the go-to colour of the decade, particularly in the bathroom where a variety of tiles in varying shades of grey can really make your bathroom into something spectacular. Gorgeous grey can create quite an impact against the crisp white of a bathroom suite.
The large rectangular tile in a neutral grey has become a popular design element in the bathroom in recent years. Its grid effect works on either walls or floors with the effect of helping to make small spaces feel larger, with less grouting to have to keep clean.
Tones of grey picked up from natural stone like marble or slate are good for adding depth and visual interest to a bathroom. Our Voramar Grey Natural Stone Effect Floor Tiles, are large scale tiles that contain tones of both natural slate and concrete so they would suit a contemporary space. West End Stone Effect Wall and Floor Tiles is a paler tile but still has that beautiful natural stone look.
Grey metro tiles give a traditional feel, and look good in a bathroom with painted walls either in a shade of white to make the tiles stand out, or in a paler shade of grey to make the whole room blend together effortlessly. Our classic Marylebone comes in both dark and light grey and gives a traditional feel, but our reverse metro with its framed bevelled edge adds an extra modern component.
For impact why not consider tiling the whole room - floor to ceiling - in grey, and then add either a paler or darker grey tile on the floor. You could choose one of our tile ranges that are suitable for both the floor and the walls to help make the process simpler. But try to mix up either the shades or the formats if you don’t want the box effect – large format with mosaic for instance. White floor tiles work beautifully with grey wall tiles too, producing a brighter room as more light is bounced around.
