A Neutral Favorite - 7 Ways to Incorporate Grey Tile into the Home

Sometimes less is more, and that comes into play with neutral colors such as grey. Grey is an ideal color for keeping things balanced and calm, while also being able to jazz a design up. From a darker steel to light grey, there is a shade of grey for everyone. Keep reading to see 7 ways you can incorporate grey tile into your home.

1. Dreamy Kitchen

Simplicity at its finest! The first way you can transform a space with grey tile is by keeping things sweet and simple by sticking to one solid toned glaze color. You can add a fun tile shape such as Fish Scales to add some personality as well as decorating with pops of color!

2. Sweet Shower Statement

Grey tile alone can be a statement piece, but including other neutral colors adds a touch of flare. This grey shower tile is a perfect example of how white and greys can turn a space into a work of art. The unique combination of Hexagon and Diamond tiles amps up the overall design and feel. Note the beautiful treatment of tile inside the shower niche. Doesn’t this Geo-Hex pattern tie the whole design together?!
