Every now and then, a trend comes along that becomes so entrenched in the world of home design, that it becomes a staple classic. There was a time when the only people who were going for the rustic cottage look were doing so because they were living in a rustic cottage, and the only time you saw a coastal/beach house style house, was if you were on the coast. These days, there are extremely popular ways to decorate a home, no matter where it is located!
So it is with gray laminate flooring. A few years ago, quite a few years, in fact, people started to gravitate to this style of flooring for a number of good reasons. After all this time, it's starting to look like the trend is becoming a classic. Here's why.
It's a Great Stand-In for Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed wood is an extremely hot building material at the moment. The only problem is that it can be a bit pricey, due to the high demand for it, and the limited supplies available. There's only so much reclaimed wood to go around thanks to the nature of how it is collected, and with everyone trying to get some of their own, vendors are reaping the rewards.
The good news is that a lot of gray laminate flooring styles can act as a very affordable replacement for reclaimed wood, when trying to achieve styles that call for it.
Gray is the Perfect Neutral Color
Gray is easily the most friendly neutral color to work with, and you don't get much more neutral than gray. "Gray" is practically a synonym for neutral, after all!
The great thing about using gray as your main neutral color, is that there are few colors that don't play well with it. It integrates well with other neutral colors, and acts as a perfect backdrop for the splashes of vibrant color you use to break up the neutral elements of your decor.
When you consider these things as a whole, gray is the most beginner-friendly neutral color you could ask for, when decorating your home.
It Has a Versatile Range
As we mentioned earlier, gray laminate flooring's ability to stand in for reclaimed wood, makes it an excellent choice for more rustic style homes. When properly employed, it is an excellent foundation for a coastal style home, or to achieve that beach house look, no matter where you are.
The great thing about gray flooring, however, is that it is also extremely popular with homeowners who are looking toward a trendier, more modern style of home. Depending upon the style of gray laminate flooring you choose, you can achieve a wide range of looks, from rustic to modern chic!
