Shades of grey
Using tonal shades of grey is one of the chicest ways to bring an interior up to date but the shade you choose will influence the mood of the room. Tilestyle (01-855 5200 Tilestyle.ie) has an Italian porcelain tile with beautiful warm grey and cream tones that will work in classic or contemporary spaces. The large format square tile, 80cm by 80cm, reduces the number of grout joints needed thus giving the floor a sleek and smooth finish. They are reduced from €120 to €77.50 per square metre at their showroom in Ballymount Retail Centre, on Ballymount Road Upper in Dublin 24.
