versatile grey

Grey is quite clearly now the colour of choice for flooring. It offers a cool, modern alternative to the traditional warmer beige and cream tones and is incredibly versatile.

We’re pairing grey flooring of all types, from chevron engineered wood, plush carpet and Berber styles with a range of colours, proving that grey is the perfect accompaniment to sage green, pink, lilac and monochrome schemes.

Opting for a textured and pure wool carpet doesn’t have to cost the earth. One of the benefits of going for a 100% pure wool carpet is that the authentic loop pile carpet has a dense, cushioned weave that feels snug underfoot. Simple, understated and timeless, grey flooring looks beautiful when contrasted against soft pinks, neutral hues and plenty of greenery.

Update your room no matter the budget! Many shy away from statement carpets, thinking that they’ll blow the budget, but you can get a fresh-off-the-pages-of-a-magazine look without bankrupting yourself. Make a real statement in your home with this bold and eye-catching carpet, which is complemented by the soft grey walls. Keep the rest of the room simple to avoid overwhelming your space and relax in the knowledge that you’ve got an on-trend and stylish home.

Top tip: pick up on a main colour, such as the blue pictured here and you’ll let the floor speak for itself.

We’re strong believers that you can never have too much grey. Mix lighter and darker hues together for a timeless scheme, emphasised by interesting details. Adding in greenery and quirky accessories will prevent the scheme from looking too flat.

Not all carpets are made equal. The heathered effect on this carpet adds that little something extra. And although there will always be the nay-sayers who claim you cannot have carpet in a hallway, we’re here to prove them wrong and to say you can! Go for a 100% polypropylene carpet for something that’s hard-working and easy to clean and you’ll never have to worry about carpets in hallways again.

Who said wood flooring has to be brown? Embrace the country cottage trend with a modern-day grey floor, complete with a timeless chevron pattern. Engineered wood is a popular alternative to solid wood as a flooring material because it is more affordable, practical and easier to maintain. Designed to last longer than solid wood, this oak engineered wood features the natural knots, grain patterning and colour variations that creates a floor with real charm.
