If you're after a classic, clean base for your room, grey flooring is the perfect option. It's impossible for grey to clash with anything, which makes it a hugely versatile shade; that versatility means that you don't have to change your floor every time you want to change your room – perfect for those who like to keep up with the latest trends.
The overall feel of a grey room actually comes from the other colours and accents that you use. In this article, we'll tell you about two different colour combinations we think work perfectly with grey flooring to create entirely different effects: green and red.
Green works perfectly in combination with grey for a fresh, inspiring, contemporary interior. Starting with a steady base of grey wooden flooring, start to bring in soft green paints, fabrics and ornaments. Cushions, bedding, chairs and feature walls are all great opportunities with this decor. As a general rule of thumb, the more you use, the fainter the green should be. Features can stand out in a strong lime green, but walls and surfaces should be more muted. Another idea is to use plants which, when used correctly, make a great feature and bring natural, light green which perfectly compliments a grey floor design.
Red meanwhile, is the perfect accompaniment for grey laminate flooring for a strong, confident statement. In particular, sharp bursts of bright red are excellent at puncturing the room as an exciting focal point to bring a little drama and passion to your home. The key with this is to avoid going overboard – red should be bright and bold, but it should be kept to particular features rather than dominating the room. For a stunning living space, try creating a soft pallet by mixing grey flooring with whites and muted browns, and then bring it to life with focused explosions of red. Geometric shapes and sweeping lines bring are a theatrical way to spice up your design.
There are, of course, many other combinations you can use with grey flooring, and as always, we'd love to hear your ideas. Check out our Pinterest board below for inspiration on how to incorporate grey flooring into your home.
