Style Spotlight: Gray Flooring 

Light, dark, or somewhere in-between — choosing the color of your new flooring can be overwhelming to say the least. Floors are an investment, and you want to get it right. There’s no gray area — or is there? 

 

Shades of gray have become incredibly popular in home design. From paint, to furnishings, right down to your floors, gray has the ability to create a cool, calming backdrop that pairs well with a variety of styles. But which gray flooring is right for your home? 

 

Engineered Hardwood 

When it comes to solid hardwood, it can be difficult to achieve the perfect gray stain. However, engineered planks provide us with a variety of choice and style, and allow us to get exactly what we’re looking for in terms of stain and finish. Its durability, beauty, and ease of installation make engineered planks an excellent option for the perfect gray hardwood look. It can be nailed, glued, or even clicked into place over an existing floor. 

 

Gray Carpet

Wood may be the popular choice on your Instagram feed, but gray carpeting can often be a fabulous choice for your home. Affordable, warm, and soft underfoot, gray carpet will feel neutral and current throughout the home, without overwhelming the space. Worried it might be too bland? Patterned gray carpet can make a big design statement and work wonders in hiding foot traffic residue. 

 

Gray Wood-Look Tile

If you have pets, kids, or live in a warm climate — nothing quite beats the durability and versatility of tile. A gray wood-look tile can work with a variety of home styles, from cozy farmhouse, to mid-century modern. And much like engineered hardwoods — what you pick out is what you get. There’s no worrying about the stain not living up to your expectations. 

 

Gray Luxury Vinyl Planks/Tiles

This high-tech flooring combines style with extreme durability — seamlessly mimicking the look of hardwood, ceramic or stone. Whether you want a hardwood look without the maintenance, or a stone style without the cold toes — it’s easy to find a gray luxury vinyl style to suit any design aesthetic. And because it’s virtually indestructible, it makes it an ideal candidate if you’re looking to install one floor throughout the entirety of your home.

Shabby Chic Style For Your Home

Romantic fabrics, calming colors, and charmingly chipping paint — the shabby chic look embraces a laid-back lifestyle that celebrates imperfections. A popular design aesthetic for decades, this elegant, yet cozy style is easy and affordable to implement into any space. Looking for some shabby inspiration? Let’s get started… 

 

Upcycled Furniture

For the most part, the “shabby” part of “shabby chic” refers to items that feature a weathered or antiqued look — and upcycled furniture is a great place to start. Whether you scour flea markets for the perfectly distressed piece, or paint a tired family heirloom — a neutral matte paint and a little distressing can go a long way. For larger upholstered pieces, consider crisp white slipcovers, and add in touches of faded florals and delicate ruffles to complete the look. 

 

Well Worn Floors

Distressed flooring is an important factor in creating your shabby chic home. Whether you opt for a hand scraped engineered hardwood, a luxury vinyl plank with a shabby look, or a distressed ceramic tile — it’s easy to create a shabby chic style at just about any price-point. 

 

Mix & Match

Have fun taking time to collect shabby chic accessories. Old faded books, intricate picture frames, hand-turned candlesticks and crystal chandeliers make the space feel eclectic and homey. Repurpose old travel trunks as side tables, and salvaged window-panes as wall art. Mix and match textures and patterns for a cozy and casual space, using a repeated color-scheme to keep it cohesive. 

 

Nurture Nature 

Shabby chic homes have a light and bright feel, incorporating elements of nature into the overall design. Woven bamboo or wooden shades, and light linen curtains bring in tons of light and add elements of texture and depth. Utilize chunky wicker baskets to store extra blankets, and search for antique clay pottery to house your houseplants.
