A guide to the perfect large grey floor tiles

A guide to the perfect large grey floor tiles

Grey has dominated the design world like no other colour. 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. And proving it's here to stay, Ultimate Grey has been named the 2021 Pantone colour of the year.

Seeking those perfect large grey floor tiles? Because there are so many greys, we're exploring beautiful mid-greys and there are plenty to choose from!

Define Grey - Stone effect

Define takes inspiration from the city with a lovely fine-grained surface and crushed stone set against a subtle grey background.

When choosing large grey floor tiles it is worth noting that all grey's have undertones of another colour. So for cooler tones it may be something like green or purple or for warmer grey tones it may be red or yellow. Find the undertone and it will make your design role much easier.

Docklands Grey - Cement effect

This is a great tile. It's so versatile. In fact the whole Docklands collection is brilliant. It's a great example of a concrete effect tile done well. We love the 900 x 900mm size - it's a great large format. Equally great is the 600 x 600mm sizes - perfect for smaller bathrooms. If you want to add a bit of texture to walls then the co-ordinating ceramics tick all the boxes.

Metro Grey - Cement effect

All three shades of our Metro collection - Silver, Grey and Bone are super usable. Both the Silver and Grey make a brilliant canvas for kitchens and bathrooms.

And don't stop at floors, these tiles make superb wall tiles too.

Beat Grey - Cement Effect

It really is hard to beat this cement effect collection for ultra-realism. The surfacing is bespattered with salts and the appearance of flaking giving it an authentic, worn look with varying shades running across the surface.

What we really love about this is the Contour finish available in the 1200 x 600, 900 x 900 and 1000 x 1000mm sizes. It cleverly defines the more worn areas of the tile and is characteristic of city pavements. There's also a 600 x 600mm option in a Soft finish.

Serenity Ash - Wood Effect

It's impossible to look at large grey floor tiles without including wood effect porcelains. Especially when they are in a lovely large format 1510 x 240mm aswell as a slightly smaller format perfect for smaller bathrooms. Where do we begin? Serenity is just brilliantly versatile.

Whether you are creating a cosy retreat or have acres of space, these large format wood effect planks are ultra-realistic with 39 random patterns to the collection. There are 7 colours in total.

Ash in particular pairs fantastically well with our Carrara Argent Natural finish marble effect tiles if you're looking for a great bathroom combination. And if you want to go more gold than silver, try out the Taupe with our Carrara Oro.
