How to create a gray bedroom decor
Below we have enlisted for you some successful ways to create some amazing gray bedroom decor. But first, let’s clarify something. It’s important to know the reason why paint your bedroom grey. It’s a great color and the reasons are endless, but in the above brief guide you will get the chance to discover some of the most important factors in favor of it. This will definitely convince you to have a gray bedroom, in case you are still thinking about it.
And now that you are sure this is the color for you, let’s dive right in the ho-to part!
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.
Tip: There are plenty of grey bedroom ideas out there. The point is to make sure you find the ones you really love.
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!
However, if you are not into art you can just light up the space by creating a light grey room. The right shades will definitely do the trick, trust us.
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!
