"At my house, plain grey tiles are used for both the floor and walls." - Current form

"At my house, there were plain grey tiles used for both the floor and walls." - Past tense

'They' refers to two or more people or a person of unspecified gender. Unless we are missing some context I'm pretty sure the correct word to use is 'there'

Why not keep it simple and just avoid doubt? Just say

At my house plain grey tiles were used for both floors and walls. And yes, as someone has already pointed out, it is spelling that would be more of concern here rather than grammar. I am not one for the spelling patrol but in this context, oh go on :p
