Thinking of updating your kitchen flooring? Choose Grey!
The kitchen is the heart of the home and as such, your floor tile choice is bound to be a considered one. Before you start, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself when making your kitchen flooring choice - what colour tile are you looking for? What kind of finish would you like? Are you thinking about underfloor heating? Do you want to have large or small tiles? Just to name a few!
To help you through your decision making process, we’re going to be putting together a series of blog posts on kitchen floor tiles, beginning with arguably one of the most popular colour choices - grey!
Dark Grey Kitchen Tiles
If you have enough light in your kitchen, don’t be afraid to opt for a dark grey floor tile. Teamed with natural wood or painted kitchen cabinetry, a large dark grey or anthracite tile will really bring a hint of style and sophistication to your kitchen space. To ensure the dark colour isn’t too overwhelming, opt for a white or lighter wall tile and worktop.
The main benefit of darker kitchen floor tiles is less cleaning time even in a heavy footfall area. If you know your kitchen is going to be prone to stains and muddy footprints, a darker grey floor tile is therefore definitely the way to go.

The grey veining set against the white background of the floor tiles will sit beautifully against crisp white kitchen cabinetry and will also look fantastic when paired with a matching splashback or wall tiles.
