10 Best Floor Color for Gray Walls (Experiment with Images)

What color floor goes with gray walls?

In order to get a solid answer, we tried 30+ (34 for the exact number) flooring options in our test area with a gray-colored wall.

For wood floors, this experiment revealed that light brown, dark brown, and dark gray are all colors that blend well with gray walls. For the tile flooring, white marble, light gray, and black are all colors that work well together.

Here are the results of our two-part experiment.

Gray Walls and Wood Flooring: What Color Floor to Choose?

First, there is wood flooring. We tested and compared different types and colors for wood flooring to determine the five best colors that would work well with rooms with gray walls. Here are the results.

Light Brown Wood Flooring

The light brown color of the wood floors goes perfectly with the gray walls. Walnuts and oak are two types of wood with a similar light brown hue. Combining a light brown floor and gray walls creates an elegant, natural-looking room.

This floor will work well for those who wish to give their room a rustic or classic touch. This combination can be used in many different interior design styles.

Gray Walls: Best Color Tiles for Gray Walls

We also used tile/marble flooring in our experiment. Here are five tile colors that go well with gray walls:

White Marble Tiles

The white marble tile will look great with gray walls and make the room appear larger and brighter as it reflects a lot more light. The natural marble effect of this type of tile gives the room a luxurious look.

Brown Tiles Flooring

It is well known that brown tiles create a warm and inviting atmosphere in any room. They also blend perfectly with gray walls.

Light Gray Tiles

This light gray tile will help you create a monochrome look in your room. This combination is elegant and exciting, with a similar color to the walls.

Black Marble Flooring

Black marble is not only elegant, but it also looks classy and stylish. This kind of flooring goes perfectly with the gray walls. Black flooring is a neutral color that can help you choose furniture.

Gray Stone Tile

This dark gray tile is the last color to blend perfectly with a gray wall. This tile is perfect for anyone looking to add a rustic or industrial touch to their room. This gray stone tile is seamless and blends perfectly with the wall because of its similar shade.
