Gray is a mixture of black and white, but grey color is very rare in Nature. Wood has many and different appearances – a variety of colors, patterns and grains. Grey hardwood floors vary in many different ways depending on the species of wood, the intensity of the stain, and the variation of the coloring. Most often we see warm or cold shades of gray with hues of yellow, brown or beige hues in the warm end of the gray palette or blue and green tones in the cold end.

This means that to achieve the desired visual effect, color combination and ambience in the room, one has to choose the right grey shade so that the overall impression is relaxed and comfortable.

As a rule, dark grey floors visually reduce the space while light gray and medium gray floors create an atmosphere filled with air. As far as style is concerned, gray works perfectly for modern styles, such as high-tech, minimalist or urban loft and the shades of gray are reminiscent of metal, concrete and asphalt.
