Gray Tones: Beautiful, Not Blasé

Gray is a very popular color this season, and it can be used all throughout your home. Installing gray hardwood flooring, gray laminate flooring, or even gray porcelain or ceramic tile flooring will add some extra class to your home! A great space to install gray flooring in your home is your kitchen because it is a space where a lot of people tend to congregate. Gray flooring will give your kitchen the illusion of appearing more spacious and welcoming. If you’re looking to install new flooring, then consider the color gray as it can turn any room from drab to fab in an instant!


Where to add gray tones

If you’re ready to take a leap into this modern trend, then don’t be afraid to try gray flooring and gray finishes. A beautiful glossy gray marble finish on a kitchen countertop or even gray knobs on your kitchen cabinets can be the perfect modern touch. For floors, you can choose from gray hardwood, carpets, laminate, ceramic or porcelain flooring. They all provide a certain class to them, as well as set the sophisticated mood for any space in your home.


Gray is a mixture of black and white, but it is very rare in nature. For gray hardwood flooring, it varies depending on the species of the wood, the intensity of the stain and the variation of the coloring. Gray has unique properties that can be used to create atmosphere and visual effects.


Gray hardwood floors provide flexibility regarding design. They can go with any style of home or room from rustic, to traditional to modern. You can choose from weathered wood or a gray wood finish that will make your floor stand out. To balance the appearance of the room, you’ll need to understand how gray works with other colors. Dark gray floors visually reduce space while light and medium gray floors create an atmosphere filled with air.


Color combinations with gray tones

For a bedroom, gray carpet flooring paired with delicate and subtle purple or pink finishes will create a romantic atmosphere. In your living room, gray laminate flooring and blue finishes will enhance the level of elegance. Gray porcelain flooring and yellow finishes will create a bright and joyful atmosphere. Gray ceramic flooring and red finishes will create a dramatic and exciting atmosphere while gray ceramic flooring and green finishes will create a relaxing atmosphere.
