Yet there’s something elegant and bright about bringing in grey with new floors. It’s neutral enough to work with a variety of decorating types and last you for years to come. It’s also trendy enough to make your decorating style stand out as innovative and fresh.
Here’s how you can incorporate some of the 2015 flooring trends you’ve been eyeballing for some time!
Shabby Chic Flooring
If you’re not completely sold on the idea of grey floors, you might want to go with a fun, yet neutral shabby chic style. This style works well in vacation homes, beach houses, and with any type of nautical décor. It’s a little bit rustic and a little bit trendy giving it a unique appeal.
Oak patterned grey flooring might sound unusual but wait until you see it! This style of floor incorporates the natural grain pattern of oak hardwood with the cool, crisp coloring of the grey tones. There are a variety of tones you can choose from including dark, bold grey, and light, almost brownish grey. Any of these styles look stunning in modern and contemporary rooms.
If you want to tear yourself away from the hardwood look, try stone. Grey is a natural stone color, so the rock or granite pattern fits in well with traditional décor. This slate style is perfect for mudrooms, living rooms, or kitchens.
If you’re feeling a little bit edgy and want to incorporate some serious style into your space, you won’t want to miss this vintage pattern. The vintage grey flooring mimics the look of old, weathered wood adding rustic appeal with loads of personality. This is perfect for small spaces where you’re likely to sit with your friends and enjoy a glass or two of wine, such as bars, dining rooms, or kitchen areas.
Grey tones can be incorporated in a variety of ways. If you want to see what grey flooring looks like in your house, request your free sample today!
