40 Gray Bedroom Ideas

Gray bedrooms can be dramatic and still be subtle, making them cozy and comfortable without being boring or two dimensional. Gray indeed has many shades. You can use different combinations to achieve something really spectacular. Here are some quick tips and gray bedroom ideas to make a hit!

How to create a gray bedroom decor

Choose Your Accents Carefully

Breaking monotony is key when approaching a gray bedroom. However, you can choose one significant piece of furnishing that would highlight the gray instead of distract your eyes away. A perfect accent would be a black and red chandelier. The stark contrast is like a palate cleanser that makes you appreciate all the gray even more. Keep in mind that it is best to choose just one big accent or furnishing as opposed to small, subtle ones. The point is to make as much impact as possible.

Textures are Important

Invest in exciting fabric such as velvet, satin, and even corduroy. Contrasting fabric textures provide more depth and body in the bedroom design, which can completely change the perception of people towards the color gray. Choose fabrics that pop out and have as much character as possible.

Let There Be Light

A bench near a large window would be a great addition to a gray room. Having a part of the room get as much light as possible would make the room a lot less gloomy. It might even add to the drama! Any gray room should have at least one natural light source (or two, if at all possible). This will keep the room looking interesting during the day. At night, a chandelier or floor lamp would do perfectly.

Art in Gray Bedroom Walls

Gray provides a great backdrop for pieces of art, whether they are paintings, blown-up photographs, or even sculptures. This way you can bring those gray bedroom walls to life with our inspiration list! The contrast created by hanging colorful works of art on gray bedroom walls would be the perfect way to transform a relatively boring bedroom. Chad gray, arsenic, manatee, and cool gray are just some of the best options for an art wall. That way your grey bedroom walls can come to life and be fresher!

Gray and White room Designs

You can use two different shades of gray for the ceilings and walls. Going the monochromatic route is not a good treatment when doing a gray room. You always want to keep things interesting so that you don’t get bored just looking at gray walls. You don’t even have to hang anything over those two-toned walls if you want the bedroom to have a cleaner, more zen look to it. A simple contrast of dark and light gray would do well either for walls or ceilings. You can also go a completely opposite way and pick a brighter color next to the grey tone to make it even more interesting.

The ultimate color many interior designers choose, though, is white. The combo seems to be ideal when it comes to stylish decorations. The white color breaks the monotony of a simple gray room. It gives your design a special look you will love. White details in your gray bedroom decor can be either on walls or furniture. Decorative objects are also a way to sprinkle some white lines into your room. Below you can see some great gray bedroom ideas. In most of them you can notice how well-combined the white color is.

The monotony of the gray fits perfectly and harmonically with the pureness of such a bright color: white. Do not hesitate to choose this combo for your bedroom! And if this doesn’t fit your taste, you can take a look at other bedroom ideas we have for you!
