    There, you're correct. They would imply a person was in the house.

    At my house, there were plain grey tiles used for both floor and walls?

    A comma could even be chucked in

    At my house there were plain grey tiles, used for both floor and walls.

    In my house plain grey tiles were used for both floor and walls.

    Ooh, I thought the house was unoccupied

    "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'

    dark or light grey tiles???lol

    My house is tiled grey.

    Imagine if you had an actual argument about something important and not with an idiot!

    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
