Color Coordination – Color Coordinating Floor Vent Register With Floor Tiles

In the previously article within this floor tiling home renovation project series, we wrote about the technique used to secure the grout between the tile and the wood of the adjacent stairs wood hand railing.

Today, we wanted to cover coordinating the color of the floor vent register with the new dark charcoal over-sized floor tiles.

Here is the a picture where we used the original vent cover in the newly tiled laundry room:

Typically, floor vent registers are not meant to be the visual focal point of any room. They are meant to be as invisible as possible.

So, we couldn’t decide if we should go with a silver / metal vent register to match the silver door handles or with a black colored version.

Here is what one silver floor vent cover looked like compared to the original beige vent register:

Even though it did match nicely with the door handles, we felt it stood out way too much.

So, next we tried this black vent register in the laundry room:

Much improved.

So, we purchased a second one for the floor heating vent in the front hall.

This was the 4 inch by 10 inch Gothic Aluminum Black, model AGA410-BLK, floor register from Decor Grates.

A nice finishing touch I think.

    Flush mount registers made with your tile for a perfect match would have looked so much better.

    Hi Ron,
    That is a great idea.

    We’ll keep it in mind for the future.

    Hey Ron, this tile is the ONLY tile like on whole internet because it fits perfectly with my remodel, however I’m having real problems finding it anywhere.

    Do you know the name of it? Or any brand of the tile you have?

    Thanks a lot!

    Josh.

      Hi Josh,
      I don’t have the name but do keep in mind that they are 24 inch tiles which are huge and are a real pain to install.

      Yet, I purchased them in Oshawa, Ontario at a specialty flooring store. I cannot remember the name but they are located on Simcoe Road just south of Tauton Road.

      I hope that helps,
      Dan
