Grey LVTs work in both modern and classic interiors
Being an extremely versatile and easy-to-match colour, grey can be integrated into a modern or classic interior. The flooring texture, appearance and tone will dictate the style that you should use in your rooms.
For a modern and colourful interior, for example, the grey luxury vinyl flooring will diminish the chromatic impact of a furniture in powerful, vibrant colours without stirring its personality.
For classic rooms, it is recommended to choose a more refined colour for your flooring. For example the Karndean LM09_Gallatin colour full of contrasting earthy blue and grey tones with a slightly deeper mottling effect it’s going to be just the perfect choice. The flooring colour should be in line with the furniture and the accessories specific to this style: velvet, silk, golden/ silver details. The grey luxury vinyl tiles will surely emphasize the classic elegance.
