Gray is one of the most popular home design colors. Flooring, furniture, and accessories reflect this trend. Homeowners often choose a gray stain for their new hardwood floor, and laminate planks, which mimic hardwood, mirror this look. Braid Flooring & Window Fashions in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, offers an abundant selection of the latest flooring styles. Gray wood-look laminate flooring is available in many plank sizes and grain patterns.
A few facts about laminate flooring
Laminate is a multi-layer flooring material available in standard and waterproof styles. The fiberboard core layer, which provides warmth underfoot, is positioned above the backing layer. The wood image layer is covered by a transparent wear layer that repels abrasion and stains. Laminate flooring is easy to clean, so it's ideal for homes that include children and pets.
Shades of gray
Silver is one of the lightest shades of gray, and a hue that is often called 'cloud' is even lighter. In contrast, charcoal and iron are dark shades, while pewter and smoke are medium shades. Gray replaces beige as the go-to neutral color. Trendy greige blends both colors. Combine a gray floor with white walls to create an upscale look.
Warm vs. cool gray
Warm grays have red, yellow, or brown undertones, while cool grays have green, purple, or blue. Since cool colors seem to recede, they make small rooms appear larger. These hues promote a calm and relaxed feeling, while warm shades are more stimulating. Choose a cool gray for a bedroom and a warm gray for a family room.
