How to choose large grey kitchen floor tiles

Grey - a staple of design

Our love affair with grey is here to stay. This staple of design has been with us for more than a decade and reigns supreme. It's more than a trend. It's a phenomenon. So much so that Ultimate Grey is the 2021 Pantone colour.

From the chic tones of silver greys to charcoal hues, it's timeless. It's the stuff of grown up colour palettes and encourages you to strike and pair it with all kinds of bright colours. It also calls for subtlety and whites, natural and neutral tones.

Dark to light, mid tones to silver. Here's some of our top picks for large grey kitchen floor tiles in lighter greys.

Metro Silver - Cement Effect

This is one of our most loved tiles. The blend of design, finish and delightful silver tone makes it a triumph of a tile. It will work pretty much anywhere. It is a great canvas for a kitchen. There's such lovely movement in the cement design that it's also equally at home in a bathroom or across entire ground floors.

The Soft finish for inside is the stuff of barefoot dreams and matching Antislip finish for outside makes for a seamless flow and a brilliant canvas for inside outside spaces and especially as porcelain tile flooring for kitchens.

Haven Stone - Marble effect

Haven Stone is the lightest hue in this collection. It's a perfect blend of marble veining and contemporary neutral notes. It doesn't shout. It makes a subtle statement. It's understated. If you love marble and want a contemporary take on it, then this is it.

The Natural finish is lovely and soft and there's a Polished finish too.

Forge Titanium - Metal effect

Forge explores the striking effect of weathering on metal and makes for a show-stopping collection of metal effect tiles. Titanium in particular is a really versatile colour and the bronze tones in it pair superbly with woods and more.

The really great thing about this tile is the 800 x 800mm format - large enough to feel wow but easier to handle than the 1200 x 1200mm - that said if you can go for it, the 1200 x 1200mm is stunning. Forge makes the perfect large grey kitchen floor tiles if you're looking for a tile that works in both contemporary and traditional settings.

Fuse Stone - Stone Effect

Fuse Stone is an eye-catching porcelain that fuses the effect of crushed stone with a subtle white background shade giving a lovely sense of movement across the tile surface.

These are the kind of muted tones that will work in almost any setting and the Antislip Soft finish means they can be used inside and out.

The polished finish enhances the tiny stone flecks really bringing them to life. If you want a canvas that is neutral with a hint of movement then try this.

Aria White Onyx - Marble effect

We know it's called White Onyx but this really is a silver grey and it is simply exquisite. The whole Aria collection is a treasure trove of sumptuous Italian marble effect tiles, but for us, this is the stand out colour. It is best suited to homes and low traffic areas and will need a little more love and care than most other porcelains to keep it tip-top. But it's worth it.
