Have ordered our new fitted kitchen - the bottom cupboards will be stone grey, the top cupboards on one side will be have milk glass fronts and on the other side (only 2 cupboards) are a very very light grey. The worktop is black granite. We're keeping the walls white and its a really light room but the question is what colour should the floor be?
We want to put tiles down - we've got underfloor heating so i'm not worried about it being cold. Is another grey just a bit too much grey? But will dark ones not drain the light?
<sob> previous owners had white grout for apricotish kitchen floor tiles whatever washes easily from the tiles, soaks into the grout. gradually the grout gets mankier and mankier and is impossible to get clean/keep clean but they tiled another room, olive coloured tiles, and looks like they mixed the grout to match, and it looks mighty fine.
Dark red/terracotta would be fabulous with the grey and black, and add a warm tone. Or a nice warm/medium-stained wood floor to balance the grey and add a natural element. No white grout! An aunt of mine had terracotta tiles with the same colour grout in her 1920s Bauhaus style house kitchen and it was lovely.
