Grey Hardwood: A Trendy Neutral Option

Grey hardwood flooring started to gain popularity a few years ago, following in the trendy footsteps of wide plank hardwood flooring. With the continued popularity of grey hardwood, many home owners are curious about whether it’s the right choice for them. However, when you invest in new hardwood flooring, you want to make sure you are picking the right style and design for your space, as you will likely have the floor for many years to come.

The good news is that grey tones can be selected across many types of hardwood, including white oak hardwood flooring and European Ash species flooring. Essentially, grey flooring offers a cool and sophisticated foundation that compliments a wide array of décor styles and modern finishes. As a versatile hue, grey flooring provides both a stylish and modern look that works well in casual and contemporary settings. A grey stain, paired with wide plank hardwood flooring, will give your home a fresh new look that is both on trend and timeless.

What To Consider When Choosing Grey Hardwood Flooring

Grey hues are endless, which means that your options for grey hardwood floors are vast. When trying to choose the right grey tone, you also need to consider the other factors you’ll be selecting, such as the width of the planks, the texture, and the design, such as herringbone or parquet flooring. For example, our white oak hardwood flooring is available in several popular shades of grey and can be finished with a sanded smooth, matte oil.

When it comes to selecting a shade or tone of grey hardwood flooring, it’s best to start by determining if you want a light grey or a dark grey floor. Different shades of grey blend well with a variety of colours, but you need to know the undertones that will come through, so you can complete your space with complementary colours. Grey hardwood can be subtle, but it will set the tone for the room.

Choosing a darker grey can create a beautiful contrast between the flooring and lighter furniture. However, while darker toned hardwood can work well in larger spaces, it may not be the best option for a smaller space. Lighter flooring options may help create an illusion that the space is larger, as opposed to darker flooring options. On the other hand, a lighter grey floor can really open up a smaller space and create an illusion of a larger room. It’s also an excellent option when it comes to hiding dust and general wear and tear.
