Grey interiors are one of the most striking trends of the last few years – and tiles are a versatile way of incorporating it into your home.

If you’re embarking on a design or renovation project, one of the first things you should consider is your colour palette. The colour scheme of your rooms will define the look and feel of your entire home. Every piece of décor in a space should complement the colour of the walls and floors.

One of the defining trends of the past few years in design is the love of grey interiors.

50 shades of grey

Grey is the ultimate neutral and will complement any light or dark tones in your home as well as bright pops of colour. Grey walls and floor tiles are becoming an interior style staple, owing to their style and versatility. Effortlessly chic, grey provides an ideal mid‐tone back‐drop to accentuate all those personal accents in your home.

Brighter greys are able to open up a room without the risk of glare that comes with white walls. Dark greys, such as charcoals, are perfect for injecting a dramatic atmosphere into a space. If you’re thinking of incorporating some grey tones into your property, we’ve put together a look‐book to inspire you.

How to style grey wall and floor tiles

If you’re unsure of how to incorporate grey tiles in your home, consider the following ideas…

Seamless floor-to-ceiling tiling with concrete styles

If you’re a fan of the industrial trend in interior design, this tiling technique is for you. Coordinating concrete‐style floor and wall tiles is the perfect way to capture this look.

Place your matt grey porcelain tiles from floor‐to‐ceiling to evoke the seamless appearance of an industrial space. Add light and texture to your home with warm metallic accents in rose gold or copper.

Chevron tiles for a vintage revival

If you’re a fan of both classic and contemporary styles, bring your influences together by laying grey modern tiles in a chevron formation.

This decorative method of installing grey tiles is perfect for creating a feature wall in your bathroom or kitchen. For a truly striking look, choose a mixture of dark grey and light grey tones in your chevron formation.

Go geometric with hexagonal tiles

Gone are the days of tiles being relegated to the perfunctory realm of rectangles and squares. The humble tile has recently become a design feature in its own right and, as such, is available in a spectrum of colours, shapes, tiles, textures and finishes.

We love the ultra‐contemporary beehive aesthetic of hexagonal tiles in a mixture of grey tones. Soften this stark geometry with blush colours and warm pastels for an Instagram‐ready living space.

The popularity of the grey floor and wall tiles means that there is no end of styles to choose from. They offer unparalleled versatility for use in any room in the home. Whatever your personal taste or style, pair grey tiles with your favourite colours and textures.
