Why grey tiles are the new white
Throughout 2016, grey tiles have established themselves as the trending colour choice, not least because they are simultaneously edgy and sophisticated, which means they work rather well with a variety of interior styles.
Not only does grey go with everything, it is also happy to take a supporting roles with other, more vibrantly-coloured accessories, walls and furniture – helping to tone them down, rather than overwhelm. Any bright citrus shade accompaniment, or even pillar-box red, will work a treat with a dependable grey tile.
