Everything. The well-known secret behind the continuous popularity of grey tiles is their versatile nature. Both sophisticated and edgy, they are a great match for a range of interior styles. Grey tiles go with virtually any style and colour furniture. You can use them to tone down more vibrant colours in your décor, or bring them to the forefront as a design feature of their own. Large format grey tiles such as the Cement range are especially good as a neutral base on which to build the look of your rooms with accessories. Perfect as a blank canvas for experimenting with colour schemes, the Cement grey tiles will completely transform their look depending on whether you pair them with vibrant tones (like citrus or pillar-box red) or soft, natural warm hues.
For attention grabbing interior, mix with bold boho chic colours like teals and mustards, along with a large rugs. For a softer autumn look, combine the dependable grey tiles with earthy green tones and tan-coloured furniture. Complement with soft faux furs and velvets to create a juxtaposition to the hard lines of the industrial theme.
If you are going for a monochrome colour scheme, the minimalistic Cemento grey tiles are the range for you. You can create a clean, functional look by simply adding black and white accessories or wall coverings. The style works great for any room in the home, including your study.
Grout for grey tiles
What colour grout you decide to use with your grey tiles can entirely change the look of your space. Combining grey tiles with grey grout will create a uniform look and make the room appear bigger by creating the impression of tile edges flowing into one another.
Grey tiles with white grout will have the exact opposite effect – it will disrupt the flow and make the shape of the individual tiles pop out. Opt for this mix if you want to emphasise the pattern of your tiling (e.g. metro tiles or herringbone).
Grey tiles with black grout are another stylish blend that will turn your tiles into a design feature. Great choice if you are going for a monochrome or industrial look, the black grout also has the added benefit of staying clean for longer.
One clever way to use grout as part of your interior design without all the installation work involved in laying small tiles is opting for a range that features faux grout lines. Grey tile ranges such as the Boulevard Grey and Beige Patterned Floor Tiles and the Avon Grey Mosaic Effect Tiles create the effect of four small tiles, all in a medium sized tile.
Medium sized grey tiles are perfect for traditional British kitchens, which tend to be quite small. Use matching grout colour to create an illusion of a continuous space and make the area appear bigger.
When it comes to kitchen splashbacks, smaller tiles will give you the flexibility to play around with feature wall designs. Decorative grey tiles such as our Nikea Patchwork Tiles come in a medley of different patterns, ideal for creating an eye-catching effect that will complete your kitchen’s shabby chic décor.
Living room grey tiles
Large format grey tiles are a very popular choice for contemporary style living rooms. Choose from high gloss finishes and marble effect designs for a sophisticated look or choose the latest concrete effects for an industrial vibe. Fewer grout lines create a continuity and a sense of space across the room, allowing the eye to slide along the surface. Perfect for open plan living rooms and kitchens, large grey tiles will bring functionality and clean lines to your interior design.
Small grey metro tiles, like the Aria Grey Metro Tiles or natural looking brick effect tiles, are another unusual yet tasteful choice for a contemporary living room feature wall. A stylish twist on the classic white alternative, the grey metro tiles will make a super chic background to your sofa.
