Three Grey Hardwood Floors for a Fall Refresh

Grey hardwood floors provide an endless array of opportunities when it comes to design. Depending on the species of wood, intensity of the stain and variation of the coloring, you can make them look rustic, traditional or modern. You can select from a broad spectrum of dark, charcoal shades to near-white with flecks of grey. You can also select weathered wood or a polished, finished wood in your desired grey to make the floor the focal point of the room or blend in with the overall design of the space. With such a vast variety of combination and flexibility, it’s easy to see why grey is the new go-to color for interior décor.

To achieve the desired effect, one has to select the right shade of grey. How do you know which shade will work best for your residential or commercial flooring project? In general, dark grey floors visually reduce the space while light grey and medium grey floors create the appearance of a more ample, airy room. Darker grey shades make the ideal backdrop for intense bold color accents, such as red. While lighter grey hues complement well with yellow, pinks and natural hues.

To provide you with some inspiration, here are three ways we’ve worked with designers to make grey hardwood floors work for any room, including kitchens, living rooms, family rooms and bedrooms.
