Grey is a staple design choice for many, as it provides a neutral colour palette which can be built upon. Plus it's a timeless shade, which means it's a good investment for a harder to change space like a bathroom.

Whether you already have a grey bathroom, or are about to commit to one, we've curated a few styling tips to add an extra splash of personality to your space.

If you're keen on the idea of a grey bathroom but aren't quite sure how long you're going to love it for, leave the colour story to your paint choices. It's a wise idea to opt for white tiles as they will never go out of fashion, but use the top half of your walls to experiment with colour. Remember to choose a paint which is suitable for bathrooms! 

Concrete-effect

Industrial-style bathrooms are a winner for those that prefer a more rustic space. Grey doesn't have to mean glossy and perfectly pristine, it can also work for an industrial-inspired bathroom.

Grey can be guilty of looking plain and uninspiring at times but there are lots of ways to add interest to a grey scheme. Take inspiration from Tile Mountain which has laid tiles in a diagonal formation in this room set, leaving a zig zag edge for a modern feel. Contrasted with blush pink paint and patterned tiles, this grey bathroom look has been brought into 2020.

Brighten with metallics

Grey is a recessive colour, so it's imperative that you use the rest of the design to create focal points. If you're planning a grey bathroom consider choosing metallic fixtures and accessories to brighten up the room. Copper is a popular choice to pair with grey as it has a warmness to it that contrasts beautifully.

Dark fittings

Rather than brightening up a grey bathroom, consider going over to the darkside and commiting to a dark and dramatic scheme. A great starting point for this is to consider matt black fittings such as a black tap, shower screen and shower head – which are all on-trend choices, fit for an Instagram-ready bathroom reno.
