The impact of dark or light grey tiles and where to use them

Grey can also be the main focus of the room, being anything from restful and serene to moody and Gothic.

What this means is that grey floor and wall tiles can be used absolutely everywhere in your home that you want to inject some style. Be it the bathroom, the bedroom or the living space.

So, what impact do the different shades create?

Dark Greys

With a darker shade of grey floor or wall tile you get a dramatic feel. This shade can easily be punctuated by bright, colourful furniture and accessories to add a little playfulness or it can be given a chic garnish with pale creams and taupes such as xxx.

Dark grey can make a room feel soothing on the senses. This makes it perfect for creating a space that is both relaxing and stylish, such as in the bedroom. Use dark grey tiles such as the Puro Grey tiles on the floor for a modern and luxurious space.

In the bathroom think dark and dramatic while you bathe. Deep grey walls as provided by the Reverse Metro never fails to look striking, especially when the light bounces off the embossed glossy individual tiles.

When a deep grey is combined with good lighting, metallic touches and strongly-coloured furniture, you create a cool, modern colour scheme.

Light Greys

Brighter, light grey, is as equally chic as darker grey, but is more compatible other colour schemes. It is a refreshing alternative to white which makes it such a divine shade for interiors.

For a simple but effective scheme with a natural vibe in the living space. Team some pale grey metro tiles on a feature wall such as the Vinaros with a dark slate floor. Add in some pale wood furniture and some greenery for an organic feel. Alternatively, pale grey floor tiles, like the Eternal, with pale painted furniture will keep the space from looking serious and will brighten up the scheme.

For a classic and bright look in the bathroom, try combining the glossy pale grey Tofino tile with a white floor tile. The brass fittings that accompany the tiles on this wall really help to create a subtle classy effect.

Combine soft shades of grey and taupe in your Living space by choosing pale grey tiles on a feature wall such as the Habana Alabaster in grey, with taupe or beige in the furnishings for a classic, refined scheme. Provide accessories in various shades of grey.

Grey Interior Design

Grey looks good anywhere and in any combination of shade. For the ultimate grey scheme try mixing with dark shades on flooring against a paler grey shade of tile on walls. This is a good scheme to follow in any room but you can personalise it with bold colour, texture and a variety of shades.

With so many grey wall and floor tiles to choose from you are certain to find the perfect shade for your décor. From inky slates to whispy almost-white silvers, the spectrum offers something for everyone to create an elegant and enviably stylish décor.
