Believe it or not, grey is one of the most used colourways across the interiors world. It’s a neutral shade that adds a sophisticated edge to homes as well as being completely versatile. From soft, feathery dove tones to intense, chalky charcoals, it will blend into any scheme, no matter your personal style preference.
So if you’re thinking of going for grey but aren’t sure of where to start or what shade to go for, keep reading as we’ve pulled together all our top tips on how to embrace this colour throughout any room in the home with tiles.
Grey in the Bathroom
A room that should act as your own personal sanctuary, it’s important to get the colours right. You want to create a bathing space that is not only comforting and calming but on trend too.
If you’re working with grey walls, it’s important to layer the room to prevent the bathroom from feeling too flat. You don’t want to stick to just one shade, so consider layering different grey hues for a beautiful tonal effect. You can even try adding in pops of more vibrant colours to allow the room to stand out and create impact.

As seen here, our lovely textured Buxy tiles provide the perfect backdrop for a statement basin. As a neutral base colour, it allows other elements in the bathroom to stand out whilst keeping the space feeling modern and stylish.
Grey Kitchen Schemes
Another area in the home where grey works particularly well is in the kitchen. If you’re considering updating the look of this space with a fresh grey colour palette, then you’re in the right place.
You don’t necessarily have to use it throughout the whole room, you can simply bring it in subtly, through paints, tiles or even small kitchen accessories. On the whole, wood-effect and soft large-format tiles will pair beautifully with a grey colour scheme. If your kitchen is neutral and earthy, laying a large grey stone-effect surface will complement the décor nicely.

As seen here using our Rock grey floor and wall tiles, the subtle natural stone detailing found across the large-format tile adds a spacious and open feel to the kitchen. The look has been further characterised with wood textures and sprigs of greenery to give the room a hint of colour.
Go Grey Outside
You might be thinking it’s a bit soon to be thinking about renovating your outside patio, however, with spring just around the corner it’s an ideal time to start planning. And what better way to do this than with grey tiles?

Featuring the natural look of timber in a durable porcelain tile, it offers a slip, weather and stain resistant surface that is also durable and easy to clean all year round.
