The beauty of gray color wood flooring
Gray color wood flooring is a design trend whose time has come. As one of the most popular modern hardwood floor colors, gray is prized for its calming, neutral tones and its ability to pair with nearly any interior design scheme. Compared to natural color wood floors, gray offers a much cooler feel that modernizes any room, and lighter shades of gray can help to brighten a space and make smaller rooms feel more spacious.

What are the benefits of gray wood flooring?
Gray color wood flooring is a neutral choice that can support virtually any design scheme. Gray has a calming energy that helps a room to feel more relaxed, and lighter grays can help a smaller room to feel more spacious as well. Gray color wood flooring reflects light more easily, helping to brighten darker rooms and to make light rooms feel pleasantly airy. And because it hides dust and dirt more easily than dark floors, gray wood flooring is easier to keep clean. While gray floors were initially viewed as a trend, many people today feel that gray is quickly becoming a timeless hardwood floor color that will have appeal for generations to come.
What wood is best for gray color flooring?
Virtually any species of hardwood or pine can be used for gray color wood flooring. Some species like Ash, White Maple and White Oak may be easier to stain because their natural colors are more neutral, while woods like Walnut and Cherry, which have naturally darker and bolder hues, may be more challenging.
Can engineered floors be stained gray?
Yes. Engineered hardwood colors at Carlisle are just as varied as the color choices for our solid wood floors.
