Settling on a flooring color that’s both unique and easy to build a room around can be a challenge. At Floor Coverings International in Austin, we love discovering new trends to help inspire homeowners in their search for the perfect flooring. That’s why today we want to talk about the particularly exciting gray flooring color trend. It offers sophistication, modern personality and subtle style all in one. Here’s a quick list of rooms where gray flooring would look great in your home.


Light enough to create an open feel, but dark enough to hide small stains or spills, gray kitchen floors are practical and stylish. Gray laminate flooring that’s inspired by wood is a great option for the kitchen. It’s easier to clean than wood and more resistant to moisture when the occasional spill happens.


Gray tile is probably the most traditional option in the world of gray flooring. A darker slate color can offer a sleek, modern look, while natural gray stone tile looks great in a bathroom that’s inspired by nature. If you want to try something a bit more eclectic, opt for a mosaic look with gray tiles of various light and dark tones.

Living Room

The living room is the place for true gray hardwood floors. A light gray hue offers the perfect backdrop for a patterned area rug or bold piece of colorful furniture. Gray hardwood has to be treated specially to have such an unusual look, and as such it can be a bit more expensive than some other wood flooring.
