Here's a new flooring trend we particularly love: weathered hardwood floors in muted tones of grey. They set a lovely tone for the whole room, imparting to any space a cool, beachy, relaxed feel. Still not convinced? Check out these seven examples.
Grey or grey-toned floors are easy to find anywhere you would typically buy flooring. Home Depot, for example, offers a few different grey-toned options in both hardwood and bamboo floors. You can also get the look with existing floors by staining them with a combination of ebony and white wash. (This works best for oak flooring: the results, obviously, will depend on the tone that your floors had to begin with.) If you love the whitewashed, Scandinavian look, you can find DIY instructions for how to get it on That Nordic Feeling.
