In the interior design world, trends come and go at lightning speed, but the colour grey has stuck with us for almost a decade!
The world moved on from creams and browns and the grey revolution began. In their homes, people became obsessed with grey interiors, using the colour to make their spaces homely and Instagrammable.
Commercial spaces also embraced this colour due to its versatility and neutral tones. The colour grey started to appear more and more in offices, schools and public sector buildings across the world.
Here are some of the reasons why – in our opinion – the colour grey continues to reign supreme.
Timeless & Classic
You can’t go wrong with a classic colour. Unlike some colours – think yellow and red – grey will never go out of style. If you’re money or style-conscious, a timeless colour is ideal, as you don’t need to worry about switching things up once the trend is over. Though we can’t claim that grey will always be on-trend, it will always be a chic staple, like black or white.
Versatile & Neutral
It’s been said that grey is the most versatile neutral, and we don’t disagree. Neither black nor white, grey is the go-between light and dark colour, which explains why it’s so popular. The perfect base colour, grey can contrast vibrant colours perfectly such as dark blue, orange and pink. Or, pair with other neutral tones to create a sophisticated, minimalist and modern space.
Grey Carpets & Flooring
Naturally, we love grey carpet as a flooring choice. It’s also a customer favourite and we’ve installed many grey carpets over the years in a variety of commercial environments. For applications with heavy footfall, darker grey carpets are ideal as they won’t show dirt and will deliver a modern aesthetic.
For those looking to create a dramatic and visually-appealing look, the grey carpet tiles in our Vapour range are perfect. Designed to have a cloud-like finish, it echoes the look of crushed velvet – which continues to be a popular interior design trend.
