Oozing sophistication and style, a dark grey bathroom is a modern choice that makes an impact. A deep shade like Chic Shadow highlights interesting features, so paint a feature wall behind a stylish basin, a window or a decorative bathtub. To balance the look and add contrast, paint skirting and frames in bright white.
For furnishings, natural wood looks fantastic with grey and black accents enhance a sophisticated appeal. Want a splash of colour? Consider muted tones like dusty pink for another wall and match the shade with accessories of the same colour.
Accessorising with grey
No matter what accessories you already have, it’s highly likely your new grey bathroom walls will match. Plus, the smallest tweaks achieve entirely different looks when it’s time for a change. Add blue and beige for a beachy vibe, introduce metallic gold, silver or copper for luxury or go all out with yellow for a vibrant burst of energy. Whether you accessorise with colourful towels, furniture, plant pots or artworks, they’ll stand out with style on a grey canvas.
