What’s great about grey tiles

Whether you use grey tiles as a backdrop for bold accessories or accents, or let them steal the show, grey tiles have the amazing ability to turn a mundane room into a high-functional, polished area.

They’re unlikely to date too, as grey tiles have a timeless appeal – an on-trend colour combined with stylish clean lines for a sophisticated look.

What goes with grey tiles?

Everything! Grey tiles go with almost any style and colour furniture, whether you use them to tone down vibrant décor, or make them a design feature in their own right. Make a statement by pairing them with bold colours like mustards, create an earthy look with green tones and tan-coloured furniture, or go more delicate with soft faux furs and velvets.

Which colour grout to use for grey tiles?

Grout is often a last-minute decision, but the choice of grout colour can change the look of your space entirely.

Grey tiles + grey grout

A uniform look that makes the room appear bigger thanks to the seamless lines

Grey tiles + white grout
Makes the shape of the individual tiles pop out – perfect for emphasizing metro tiles or a herringbone pattern

Grey tiles + black grout
Perfect for a monochrome or industrial look, with the benefit of staying clean for longer.

Grey tiles + coloured grout
Why not add subtle shading by using coloured grout?

Faux grout lines
Our Boulevard and Manises ranges are single tiles creating the effect of four small tiles.
