Why grey tiles are the new white

Grey is here to stay – that’s why today we’re showcasing our most popular grey tiles for floors and walls.

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, but it is also happy to take a supporting role 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.

We have collected together some of the most popular grey tiles that not only offer great value per square metre, but they showcase just how show-stopping your décor could be – with styles that range from dark, earthy slate to the softest dove grey.
