TED TODD FLOORING
Grey Wood Floors
Grey wood floors are a traditional and modern flooring choice, for any type of room in your home. Choosing from a choice of Engineered or Solid grey wood flooring, discover the benefits of installing your grey flooring.
Traditionally the only grey woods were ones that had weathered outside, baking in the sun and creating a silver-grey patina that is a product solely of nature. These woods would normally be Oak, Cedar, Larch and sometimes Pine.
Weathered tones from the outside have influenced the development of grey-toned floors for use inside the home and in other projects. As time goes by, greys have developed from the silvery tones of these weathered woods, into the full pigmented tones that have little or no warm undertones.
Types of Grey Wood Floors?
Grey Wood Flooring has become a very popular flooring choice over recent years. The neutral colour is very easy to mix and match with other lighter tones.
There are 2 different construction types of Grey Wood Floors:
Most grey wood flooring is made of Oak. However, we also offer some grey wood options in Reclaimed Pine, Larch and Walnut, making a versatile colour choice when working with these natural timbers.
Our Smoke Engineered grey wood flooring, is a warm-untoned grey flooring, part of our Create collection. The undertones are present due to the oak in this floor being Heat Treated. This treatment makes the Oak more stable and harder, but it also turns it into a rich, dark colour. When combined with a specialist wash, the grey tone is created, adding that comforting, cosy feeling to any bar area or living room
Alternatively, we have lighter grey flooring options available.
A strong example of a cool toned grey floor is Lucia, from our Strada Collection. With a look almost akin to steel and featuring an industry beating 12 coats of lacquer, this is a grey coloured floor with strong water resistance, which will retain the light grey look for decades and beyond.
What are the best rooms to install Grey Floors?
Grey wood floors are perfect for contemporary interiors; this neutral colour creates a strong talking point or statement, even alongside other powerful pieces.
They complement other grey tones that are on your walls or in fabrics with seamless ease too. The silvers and greys dance together to link one part of a project to another, be it a comfy sitting room, or stylish modern gallery room.
Warmer grey tones will work in almost every room, be it a living room, a kitchen or a bedroom; the wood effects will compliment and blend with other natural surfaces.

What are the benefits of Grey Flooring?
Grey wood flooring has the ability to bring an ambience into any interior space, pushing through character from natural wooden features. You can opt for a warm or colder look depending on what your project needs.
Grey wood floors are almost moody and can introduce a feeling of escape, or of being in a faraway land – they stoke the fire of imagination and provide inspiration to all those within the space.
This natural grey colour also expresses a feeling of individuality throughout every grain, board or block – this is not a colour you very often come across in the natural world, so when you do, it makes it just that bit more special.
In situations where the grain has silvered and shimmered, you can obtain a truly luxurious and somewhat regal feel. We have grey flooring options available across a variety of our collections to allow you to bring such elegance to floors, ceilings and walls – as our Bold Surfaces portfolio shows best.
How do you install Grey Hardwood Floors?
As with any Ted Todd or Woodworks by Ted Todd flooring or cladding option, you should only ever use a professional installer – these are valuable, beautiful timbers and are not simple to work around.
If you’re looking for a delightful finishing touch on your grey wood floor, we’d recommend adding tip polished metal inset details, which shine most brightly in herringbone parquet floors.
How do you clean and maintain Grey Wood Floors?
Caring for your Ted Todd or Woodworks by Ted Todd floor is easy thanks to our Care System 1 and 2. In order to know which one to use, take a look at the specification sheet, as each finish has its own important needs – care for your floor, and it will care for you in return, lasting a lifetime and beyond.
