From dark and dramatic to cool and pale, grey tiles are as versatile as they are timeless. Whether textured and tonal, glossy and sleek or packing some serious pattern power, there are so many hardwearing styles to discover. From earthy grey bathroom tiles to a vast array of ceramic, porcelain and natural stone designs for kitchens and floors, there’s sure to be a grey tile to suit your space.
If you’re looking to implement a truly enduring scheme, then you can rarely go wrong with grey tiles. This versatile neutral is a real soft-power shade, with the capacity to totally transform a space without the use of bold colour. That said, hues at the deeper, darker end of the grey spectrum can be wonderfully dramatic. We love the impact that grey floor tiles in rich, charcoal-coloured slate can make, for example.
To capitalise on natural light, or to help a space feel bigger, you may prefer to stick to paler shades. Glazed ceramic tiles in lighter hues are ideal grey wall tiles, particularly in dark or windowless bathrooms. In fact, any tile with a glossy surface will help to bounce that much-needed light around the room. For an earthier palette, look for beige or pink undertones: the perfect grey bathroom tiles for creating warmth. Matt finishes will enhance this effect.
If you’d like a tile with subtle tonal variation, then natural stone or stone-effect porcelain bring depth and texture in abundance. Porcelain is also incredibly hardwearing, which makes it a great choice for high-traffic areas. We have a wealth of flagstone-style designs that work beautifully as grey kitchen tiles, adding a huge amount of charm and character to both traditional and contemporary homes. If your kitchen or living space opens out to the garden, then explore our selection of grey indoor-outdoor tiles, too. Available in two different thicknesses, these grey floor tiles can be laid as one seamless floor to extend your interior outside.
For those who love to play with pattern, consider decorative grey porcelain tiles inspired by traditional Spanish encaustic designs. Our expansive range includes a number of styles in neutral shades – from bold geometrics to more intricate prints – which will allow you to inject a hit of pattern while sticking to a natural palette.
