Both stylish and modern, grey wood floors have become hugely popular in recent years for both aesthetic and practical reasons. One of the most versatile colours in the spectrum, grey can create a warm scheme as easily as a cool one – it can evoke edgy and modern, be calm and soothing, or vivid, lively and energetic.
International wood flooring specialists, Havwoods, now stocks over a hundred different grey timbers to suit every interior scheme ranging from minimalist chic to luxury outdoor decking.
The Henley collection presents a range of high-performance, pre-finished engineered planks with a superior-quality oiled and lacquered surface. Sawing, brushing, burning and planing techniques are applied to the wood in order to add this character which gives it a range of shades from cool silver to warm grey. The Coalburn plank features engineered European oak in a grey one-strip pattern – guaranteed to provide a cool neutral for modern, minimalist interiors.
The home of Havwoods’ herringbone, chevron and Versailles pattern wood flooring, the ‘Design from Havwoods’ collection includes both engineered and solid construction planks, alongside the introduction of a select range of genuine reclaimed wood. Sourced from a multitude of mills, each distinctive design is presented in a breadth of beautiful wood tones and quality finishes, resulting in a number of exquisite grey tones. The Pavia plank features a stunning grey herringbone pattern in an interlocking system that will add a touch of character to any design scheme.
Decorative patterned wood flooring dates back to the 17th century and is now enjoying a resurgence in the 21st century. Havwoods has introduced ready-made Versailles pattern panels and pre-assembled Chevron in a plank. Both the Silver and Eurus planks offer a darker shade of grey for those wanting to create a statement with their wood flooring.
Extending entertaining spaces to the outdoors, Havwoods’ range of composite wood decking brings a sophisticated grey palette to the exterior space. A practical yet aesthetically beautiful surface, the high-performance boards are designed to bring the beauty of natural timber to exterior spaces whilst avoiding the issues associated with wood’s naturally hygroscopic qualities.
Xscape decking planks, which come in a number of grey shades including Voyager Grey and Grey Fascia, offer a strong and substantial board that is resilient against the impact of extreme weather conditions. The design’s distinctive wood-grain pattern evokes a natural finish, whilst the bonded material ensures maximum resistance to external wear and tear.
