On Trend: Grey Bathroom Ideas

Grey bathrooms have been increasing in popularity over the years. Around 8 years ago grey started to become popular within interiors, especially in bathrooms and kitchens and it’s been a growing trend ever since. It’s now the go-to colour choice when it comes to bathroom design. One of the main reasons grey is still so popular is because it’s a neutral colour, also known as a achromatic colour. Which means it’s a colour without colour. It’s the middle man for colour schemes and balances out the surroundings it’s in due to its neutral personality.



Grey is a practical yet stylish option with many positive design effects. It lets colour shine, flatters period features, works with stone and marble textures and instantly makes any setting look contemporary. But most importantly it’s a colour which won’t go out of fashion and this is ideal for bathrooms… there’s nothing worse than spending a lot of money on a design that will look outdated in a few years time. Grey can be used to enhance any look in any room and makes any bathroom design a timeless one.



When incorporated properly grey is used as a base or an enhancer for other colours, patterns or themes. It’s rarely used on its own, and if it is, it can often be seen as boring and visually one dimensional. If you’re thinking about having a grey bathroom don’t assume that everything in the room should be grey, it shouldn’t overwhelm the whole room. Using a little bit of grey here and there will go a long way!



Grey is normally featured in certain aspects of the bathroom such as the walls or floors, or bathroom furniture. If used throughout the room it will be broken up by shades, tones, patterns, textures or even other colours.  It’s rarely used in just one shade throughout the room. Take a look at the below ideas for how to incorporate this versatile colour in the bathroom!

  1. Grey is my favorite color and when used with a little touch of red, it absolutely becomes astonishing. Above pictures of different designed bathrooms with grey color is awesome. It inspires everyone to pick a grey colored theme for the next remodel.
