How to style your home with more grey

11/07/2017
  • In the world of interior design, there’s no hotter colour than grey. Although it might sound dull, styling your home with grey tones instantly adds a classy and chic finish to any room, and even though it’s been used for a few years now, grey is a trend that isn’t going away. To update your home interior with an elegant and simple finish, here’s a few tips on how to style your home with more grey tones to create a sophisticated living space you’ll love.

     

    All over or subtle tones

     

    It’s not uncommon to see grey as a recurring theme in every room of the house, as it quickly replaced white as the colour favourite for keeping things neutral but with a little bit more warmth. If you’re undecided yet about grey in your interiors, you might choose to focus on one room at first, like a den or perhaps your kitchen until you’re totally comfortable embracing the grey trend throughout your house. Try adding a grey sofa or grey paint on the walls, or in your kitchen you might decide on a grey toned worktop to match white tiles and cupboard doors. If you would prefer to use subtle pops of grey to introduce it slowly to your home, grey rugs, carpets and curtains are all easy to try out and easy to style with other colours.

     

    Grey front door

     

    Perhaps you feel your home entrance could do with updating? If so, why not consider styling your home with more grey by adding a stunning grey front door? Our GRP composite doors are available in a beautiful anthracite grey which will be sure to add serious style points to your home décor.

    Grey internal doors

     

    If you want to style your home interior with more grey but aren’t sure where to start, why not paint your internal doors a rich dark grey colour? This works especially well against white walls and with a paint grade door with a top coat already applied it won’t take much effort to transform your home interior. We love these ideas for grey door inspiration.

     

    Grey flooring

     

    Grey flooring looks great in a modern home with lots of light and open space. You can choose grey tiles or grey wooden effect planks to create a stylish and comfortable living space, and with lots of options available in laminate, engineered wood or solid wood you can also pick a style that suits your budget too.

     

    Tips for decorating with grey

     

    When choosing grey paint, always opt for a matt option as otherwise the end result can look metallic, cold and industrial. Lighting is so important when decorating with grey so if you don’t have a lot of natural light sources in your room, make sure to add plenty of lamps with different light levels. Dual tones of grey can also look very effective in a large room where you’re worried about having an overwhelming amount of grey paint in the same colour.
