Style Spotlight: Gray Flooring

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.
