What Are The Pros And Cons Of Gray Flooring

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2021 - Modified: March, 2024

Gray flooring is a wonderful neutral color that goes with just about any color scheme, and it does a great job hiding dirt and grime.

There are many pros to using gray flooring. It is very popular right now, so it can update the look of any home or room. Gray offers a clean, classic look that provides the perfect pallet to work with in other products and aspects of a space - like furniture, a wall, and decor. Gray can also disguise dirt and make any space feel fresh and clean.

A con to using gray flooring would be the potential for gray flooring to go out of style if classic brown shades of hardwood come back on top in the future. Gray can also sometimes lack the warmth of wood colored flooring.

Even if brown flooring becomes the hotter choice in the future, gray is neutral and classic enough where you wouldn't have to worry about it dating your room, office, cabinets, or home.
