The best flooring styles for grey walls and furnishings

Lisa Scott Uncategorized

Grey has been a hugely popular colour when it comes to interior design in the last few years. You only have to look on Instagram at the hashtags such as #greyhome and #greyhomedecor to see 100’s of thousands users sharing their grey interiors.

Whilst it may not be everyones cup of tea, the style has been hugely popular and it’s something that is looking to carry through to 2020.


A grey carpet can add a softness to a room which is great for adding a different texture depending on the furnishings in the room. If you’ve gone for a lot of mirrored items in the room then carpets can offer the right balance for softening the look of the room. Our huge range of carpets vary in texture, style and effect. We suggest going for a light grey where possible to keep the room bright and allows for seasonal changes if your furniture trends alter.

This popular style of flooring is ideal if you’re looking for a natural flooring design. The flooring option allows for almost a ‘design your own floor’ which is great if you have a particular style in mind. You can create various textures or designs with these vinyl ranges. Depending on where you are looking to furnish, there are a couple of options to suit the location. You can achieve non slip options for the hallway and kitchens as well as cushioned vinyl if you’re looking to warm up the home or create a quieter option. Colours and styles vary and can come in tones that suit your style. The darker woods that have a grey tone to them are most versatile.

It’s about your style. Grey furniture can be complimented by many of our flooring options and it can come down to the effect you’re looking to create. If you’re looking to soften the room or create cosiness, then naturally a carpet can provide this especially something with a natural weave. If kitchen, dining or bathroom is the room of choice then the vinyl flooring provides a hard wearing and beautiful design choice that works with rugs and soft furnishings too.
