Couch Colors To Pair With A Grey Floor
Whether you're flooring is carpet, tile, vinyl planks, or true hardwoods, you've chosen to have it in the color grey. The next step is to furnish your lovely room with grey flooring, starting with your couch. So what are great couch colors to go with grey flooring?
If you're not worried about stains or spills, don't have a big hairy dog, and love a bright and light atmosphere, then consider a white couch. They look super with all colors of grey flooring and work within many different decorating styles.

We love a good tone-on-tone look. Plus with the wide range of greys, you can choose a light grey couch and a dark grey floor and vice versa. Or choose a couch in the same color as your floor for a very contemporary monochromatic look.
Grey tends to have a lot of blue in it. So blue is a natural color to pair with grey flooring. We love a navy couch with a mid-tone grey floor. Or a soft turquoise paired with a dove grey. There are dozens of ways to mix up a blue sofa and grey flooring.
Pink and grey are a super fun color combination. It's flirty and fresh and is a super distinct look. A pink sofa may not be for everyone but it most definitely works fantastic with the color grey on your floors.
We all need a gorgeous pink raspberry sherbert-colored velvet sofa in our lives. This one is an old Chesterfield style with a tufted back and turned legs. Absolutely gorgeous with the color grey.
Here's another distinct combo. Yellow and grey have kind of an urban vibe that is city loft cool. Whether you go for rich goldenrod or something as pale as wheat, you won't go wrong choosing a yellow couch for your grey floor.
Do you love neutrals? Then consider a soft beige or sand-colored sofa to go with your grey flooring. This works especially well when you have lighter grey flooring.
Do you love drama and deep tones? Black is related to grey, which makes the two a good combination. Black will also go with any type of flooring and shade of grey.
A bold design calls for bold colors and that's why we love the color red with grey. Red sofas have long been a sign of decadence and luxury. The best part is, they go great with grey flooring.
Go big! Go bold! And go red with grey flooring.
Green is a shade that can go in different design directions with grey. Choose a bright lime green and you have an interesting contemporary contrast with grey flooring. Go for something more olive or sage in tone, and you'll build a nice neutral palette for your grey-floored living room.
Is A Grey Sofa A Good Color Choice?
Grey is an absolutely great choice for a sofa. It's a lovely neutral that works well in a wide variety of decorating styles. Because it's so popular, there are tons of choices to pick from. It also varies a bunch from lighter colors to deep charcoal colors. Darker and medium greys are fairly stain-resistant and a good choice if you've got children or pets. Lighter colors are wonderful for breezy and open atmospheres.

How Do You Decorate A Living Room With Grey Floors?
Decorating a living room depends on more than just your floor color. What kind of space do you have? Is it traditional or contemporary? Urban modern or country antique? The answer will influence the way you choose to decorate, but there are similar elements to all living rooms.
In this bright, contemporary loft space, grey hardwood floors run from wall to wall. A large sectional sofa in whitish-grey and an accompanying chaise lounge take up most of the space. A glass coffee table centers between the two larger pieces. On the coffee table, a large vase is used as a focal point, and colorful pillows in coordinating blue add some interest to the couch.
Looking at this image of a more traditional living room, you'll find many of the same elements.
There are two sofas, a coffee table, decorative objects on the tables, and throw pillows to enhance the seating. In addition, here you find a mirror above the mantle, other occasional tables, and even a stack of interesting books doubling as a light stand and intriguing decor.
Both of these rooms have grey flooring, and one thing we notice is how they've chosen to use light-colored sofas to create neutral spaces. Though not a have-to, they do go very well together.
Are Grey Floors Low Maintenance?
Grey floors can be very low maintenance depending upon the shade and the type of flooring. For instance, if you choose vinyl plank flooring with a driftwood finish, it can hide a variety of sins. The variegation in the colors helps hide dirt and stains.
If you go for a darker grey hardwood flooring, bright sunlight will highlight every bit of hair, dust, and dander that lands on the floor. You may end up vacuuming more frequently because of it.
With carpet, darker grey carpets hide stains well and are good for high-traffic areas. Lighter grey carpets are apt to show a bit more dirt and wear if not properly cleaned and maintained.
