When going grey is good

Published: March 31, 2016

Grey is an “it” color in home decor. It’s quickly becoming the new neutral and no wonder. Grey provides the perfect backdrop to let other colors really pop. If you like the idea of mixing grey with other colors in your home, consider grey wood floors.

Light grey wood flooring adds an element of style to this bedroom.

Don’t think hardwood floors are an option if you want a grey floor? Think again! Grey hardwood floors are a huge design trend and one that Indianapolis hardwood flooring store Kermans sees often.

Grey hardwood floors take a timeless, beautiful floor and give it a makeover. Grey hardwood floors lend a modern, industrial feel to a room while also keeping the warmth, beauty and timelessness of solid hardwood.

How do hardwood floors get grey?

Just about any natural hardwood can be stained grey or white washed for a distressed, unique look. And within the color grey you can explore various shades from dark to barely there. You’ll find a wide variety of options based on the grain of wood and species you select for your hardwood floor.

Can’t find a natural hardwood that fits your style?

Wood floors don’t only come from natural hardwoods. Actually we should say that wood-like floors don’t only come from natural hardwoods. Porcelain tile and luxury vinyl are two excellent flooring options worth exploring if you want a grey, wood look in your floor. Manufacturers have created porcelain tiles and luxury vinyl planks that have the appearance and texture of hardwood with a number of additional benefits:

  • More color and shade options
  • Waterproof floors that can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms or basements – rooms where hardwood floors are not recommended
  • Easier to maintain
  • More affordable

Whether you opt for true solid hardwood or a wood-like option, Kermans hardwood store in Indianapolis has you covered.
