6 great ideas for grey bathroom walls and floors

Posted by Ruth Foster in Inspiration | 1 month ago 6 min read

Whether you’re thinking of using tiles, laminate or panels, be inspired by these 6 great ideas for grey bathroom walls and floors.

Welcome to Victoria Plum, where we're dedicated to helping you transform your bathroom into a stylish sanctuary. In this blog post, we'll explore 6 fantastic ideas for incorporating grey tones into your bathroom walls and floors. From sleek and modern to timeless and elegant, grey is a versatile colour choice that can elevate the look of any bathroom, including yours! Let's dive in…


1. Metro tiles for timeless elegance

Create a classic yet contemporary look with grey metro tiles (also known as subway tiles) for your bathroom walls. Whether you opt for a glossy or matt finish, metro tiles add a touch of sophistication to any space.

Pair them with contrasting grout (as above) for a bold statement or keep it subtle with a matching shade (as below). In this instance, we’ve opted for Maxi size metro tiles. At 300mm, these are slightly longer than regular metro tiles, which is ideal for larger wall spaces like those in and around shower enclosures.

2. Stone chic

Embrace an industrial-inspired style with stone-effect tiles for both your walls and floors. The subtle texture and cool grey tones of stone tiles add depth and character to your bathroom, perfect for achieving a minimalist and modern look.

For an even more pared-back appearance, why not consider grey stone-effect shower wall panels? They’re more cost-effective and quicker to install, plus, with no grout lines, they produce an almost seamless look. Complement with concrete-effect furniture and on-trend black accents for a subtle industrial feel.

3. Marble magic

Bring a sense of luxury and opulence to your bathroom with grey marble-effect tiles. Marble has timeless appeal and instantly elevates the ambience of any space. Choose large format tiles for a seamless finish or opt for mosaic tiles to create eye-catching accents.

Of course, if keeping costs down is a high priority, and you need something incredibly low maintenance, why not consider SPC flooring? SPC stands for Stone Plastic Composite; it's durable, hardwearing and can be fitted easily, even with very little DIY experience.

4. Wood-effect wonder

For a warm and inviting atmosphere, consider grey wood-effect tiles for your bathroom floors. These tiles combine the beauty of wood with the durability of porcelain, making them ideal for wet environments.

Whether you prefer a weathered look (see above and below) or a sleek finish, grey wood-effect tiles add natural charm to your bathroom. Why not combine with wooden wall panels, as we’ve done here, for a more traditional look?

5. Patterned perfection

Add personality and flair to your bathroom walls with patterned grey tiles. From geometric designs to intricate motifs, patterned tiles can transform a plain wall or floor into a stunning focal point.

A feature floor will draw the eye towards those big ticket items you intend to show off, whilst funky wall tiles (like these from our Hexagon tile range) provide a more than suitable backdrop.

Mix and match different patterns for a playful and eclectic vibe or opt for a cohesive look with coordinating designs. No matter whether you’re creating the grandest of grand designs or simply updating your downstairs toilet (see below), patterned grey tiles will bring your bathroom to life.

6. Slate sophistication

Channel the timeless elegance of natural stone with grey slate-effect tiles. The unique tones of slate-effect tiles create a striking visual impact in any bathroom. Whether you choose to use them on the walls, floors or both, grey slate tiles give off an air of sophistication and style.

The great thing about slate-effect tiles (or any form of tile, for that matter!) is that you can go as dark or as light as you like with your grey tones. See just how different the same bathroom can look with lighter grey tiles.
