Each color has its own set of characteristics, even though some are borrowed from other tones. The color gray, for example, shares some of its attributes with white. They’re both neutral and simple and are often used to create the feeling of spaciousness. But gray is much more complex than that. It’s why it can be featured on kitchen cabinets or in living rooms without ever looking the same.
When used in interior design, gray is a moody color. Sometimes it feels cool, neutral and dull while other times it looks sophisticated and balanced. But regardless of all that, gray is a timeless and practical color and a really great choice for bathrooms.
It looks chic and beautiful when combined with yellows or oranges and when mixed with white is emphasizes how crisp and pure the other color is.
The lighting is important when decorating with gray. The shades can change depending on the type or amount of light present in the room so be sure to check that before you paint the walls or but certain elements.
An entirely gray bathroom can look interesting if different textures and patterns are used. For example, this bathroom has two eye-catching accent walls and a beautiful river stone surround for the tub.
A similar effect can be obtained by using various different patterns in combination with two simple colors such as white and gray. The concept works out great in this traditional bathroom.
The versatility of the color gray allows it to look exquisite in modern and contemporary bathrooms. That’s because it looks really great in minimalist decors defined by clean lines and simple shapes. In combines really well here with the walk-in shower and the floating vanity.
