Quick—look down. What’s underneath your feet? If it’s an ugly, dated carpet or scratched-up linoleum, you need a change! You might think that expensive hardwood floors are your only option for a beautiful, easy-to-care-for floor, but think again.
Grey laminate flooring is one of the best possible choices you can make when it comes to interior design. Not only will this flooring add a sophisticated, elegant touch to your home, it’s built to withstand years of use and foot traffic.
Read on to learn why so many homeowners are choosing grey laminate flooring.
First, Why Laminate?
Laminate flooring is a composite flooring option that consists of several different layers that are fused together to ensure strength and durability. Unlike wood flooring or carpet, laminate resists wear and tear with minimal upkeep.
In addition, many laminate flooring options come with the underlayment pre-installed, meaning that they’re easy to install.
Laminate Looks Beautiful
You know that hardwood floors are expensive, as well as being difficult to maintain. The same goes for tile and stone floors. As gorgeous as they are, it’s unlikely that you have the time and energy for the upkeep that such flooring options require.
That’s where laminate flooring really shines! Modern technological advances have developed laminate flooring that can mimic the look of almost any other flooring option. It’s virtually impossible to tell high-quality laminate from the real thing.
Laminate flooring is an affordable way to give your home a high-quality floor at a relatively inexpensive price point, especially compared with real wood or stone.
Just look at the prices: The national average cost to install laminate flooring is just under $3,000. Compare that to the national average cost of wood flooring, and you’ll save about $1,500.
Reasons to Choose Grey Laminate Flooring
So you’re starting to understand the value of laminate, but you might still be considering traditional brown-hued flooring. After all, if you want a wood-look floor, that’s the most natural choice, right?
Not necessarily. Grey laminate flooring looks remarkably like reclaimed barn wood. Although there are many benefits to using actual reclaimed wood and its aesthetic is increasing in popularity, laminate is a better choice for the reasons we’ve already outlined.
In addition, grey flooring can really strike a sophisticated, modern note. If your taste in decor tends toward the minimalist, grey floors provide the perfect complement to a white-and-black color scheme.
Grey is also a great neutral, against which color really pops. Whether you opt for a Scandinavian-style kitchen in shades of blue and sunny yellow, or a living room decorated in natural tones of green, grey flooring is an ideal choice that will complement your decor without overpowering it.
For a truly inspired look, use a palette composed of varying neutrals. Think grey flooring, taupe walls, darker wood furniture, black-and-white pillows, and natural woven elements such as rugs and rustic wall hangings.
Accents of silver or gold included through the use of candlesticks, mirror and picture frames, or even metallic furniture will make your home breathtaking.
